MSC Bellissima is a cruise ship operated by MSC Cruises. She was constructed at the Chantiers de l'Atlantique in Saint-Nazaire, France.

The ship joined MSC Meraviglia in the company's Meraviglia class of cruise ships. She has a tonnage of 171,598 GT and a capacity of 4,500 passengers. The ship debuted in March 2019.

History

MSC Cruises and STX France cut the first steel of MSC Bellissima on 28 November 2016, with £750 investment. Her keel laying and coin ceremony happened on 15 November 2017. It also features 2,217 cabins and 1,418 balconies that can accommodate 5,686 guests, with the length of 315.8m and a width of 43m. On 14 June 2018, the ship was floated out. Her sea trials took place in December 2018. Andrea Bocelli, alongside his son, performed during the christening of the ship. The ship joined MSC Meraviglia in the company's Meraviglia class of cruise ships which it has a tonnage of 171,598 GT and a capacity of 4,500 passengers.

Her delivery ceremony took place on 27 February 2019. MSC Bellissima was officially named on 2 March 2019, at Southampton, by the actress Sophia Loren. The original ceremony in a marquee on the quayside had to be abandoned due to high winds, so a substitute ceremony was quickly organised and Loren pressed a button on the ship's bridge to smash the bottle of champagne on the ship's bow.

MSC Cruises collaborated with Harman International to bring "ZOE," the first virtual assistant to be featured on any cruise ship, to MSC Bellissima and future MSC Cruises ships. In September 2019, as a part of MSC Cruises' longstanding relationship with Swarovski, MSC Bellissima featured a suite fully embellished with 700,000 crystals.

On 13 February 2020, MSC Bellissima was featured on Ultimate Mega Cruise Ship on Channel 5 in the United Kingdom.

MSC Bellissima departed for her maiden voyage on 4 March 2019, and made an inaugural call in Spain on 12 March 2019.
