        MSC Cruises, also known as Mediterranean Shipping Cruises before 2004 (and formerly StarLauro Cruises), is an Italian privately-owned cruise line that expands quickly in recent years. Its parent company, MSC Shipping, is a well-known container shipping company

        Currently MSC Cruises is the third largest cruise operator in the world, which owns 13 ships by 2013. There are several classes in the fleet, including the 130000-ton Fantasia Class, the 90000-ton Musica Class, and the Mistral Class that consists of smaller ships.
