MSC Cruises hit a key global milestone at the end of June 2019, welcoming its 20 millionth cruise passenger, just 16 years after it began operating purpose-built cruise ships in 2003.
The guest, Raul Bonachea from Florida in the US, boarded MSC Seaside at PortMiami and was upgraded to a MSC Yacht Club suite alongside his wife and daughter for the duration of their cruise. The family will also have access to the Yacht Club’s private restaurant, pool and lounge as well as 24-hour butler and concierge service.
“Reaching our 20 millionth cruiser is truly a milestone achievement for MSC Cruises, and a representation of how far we’ve come while building a global brand that serves guests from over 170 nationalities across five continents,” said Gianni Onorato, MSC Cruises’ CEO. “With our capacity set to triple by 2027, we will continue to raise the bar in two main areas, onboard and ashore, offering our guests a unique experience each time they sail with us. MSC Seaside is the perfect example of this: she is one of the most innovative ships at sea in terms of design as well as onboard experience. She also features the latest and some of the most innovative environmental technology at sea.”
