International classification society Bureau Veritas (BV) has awarded MSC Cruises with a 2016 Special Safety Best Practices Award for voluntarily enhancing safety procedures to a high standard across its entire fleet.
MSC Cruises earned the award for its commitment to performing internal safety procedures over a continuous period, and conducting high-level training and drills so crew know how to react in the event of a fire, passenger evacuation or damage to the ship.
“We are pleased to provide support and recognition for the extensive efforts and investments which MSC Cruises makes in safety, going above and beyond industry and international requirements,” said Philippe Donche-Gay, president of Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore Division.
In 2013, MSC Cruises won BV’s Seven Golden Pearls award for its dedication to safeguarding the marine ecosystem, and protecting the health and safety of passengers and crew.
“When it comes to onboard safety, MSC Cruises will always strive to be at the forefront of innovation,” said Emilio La Scala, president and managing director of MSC Cruise Management. “We are thus highly honoured to receive this international recognition, as the safety and security of our guests and crew are and will always be our number one priority.”
