Above is an epic video which shows the early steps of MSC Meraviglia’s construction. We get to see certain elements and blocks of the vessel coming together at the STX France shipyard in┬áSt. Nazaire, France.

In addition to all those facts the MSC ship will be 167,700 gross tons and carry 4,500 passengers.

the ship is well underway in construction but there are still many major milestones to come.

MSC Meraviglia will be completed in June 2017 and will become the cruise lines largest cruise ship.
