MSC Cruises joins, North America’s leading travel services marketing organization, welcomes its newest Preferred Supplier: MSC Cruises, the fourth largest cruise operator in the world.

Founded in 1990, MSC is the fastest growing cruise line with a fleet of 11 ships and another Fantasia-class ship set to debut in the spring of 2012. MSC Cruises is a leader in the Mediterranean cruise market, but also offers a wide range of seasonal itineraries in Northern Europe, the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean, Dubai, Canada and New England, South America and South Africa.

“MSC Cruises is a highly-reputable company that will give our members a reliable and profitable option in the Mediterranean all year round,” said John Lovell,’s vice president of Sales & Industry Relations. “As some European-based cruise lines are evolving to suit the needs of a more general clientele, MSC has, to its credit, retained its distinctive Italian character to appeal to discerning passengers.”

Outstanding onboard service, traditional Italian style, state-of the-art technology and respect for the environment are the top priorities at MSC Cruises. It is the only company in the world to receive the "Golden Pearls” award from the Bureau Veritas in recognition of its high level of quality management and environmental protection.

MSC Cruises is also lauded for its MSC Yacht Club—a ship within a ship area featuring 71 suites, round-the-clock butler services, 24-hour concierge reception, exclusive amenities such as the Top Sail Lounge and The One Pool, complimentary gourmet dining and more.

“All of us at MSC are delighted to now be part of the family,” said MSC President Rick Sasso. “This new partnership will be filled with opportunity and rewards for agents, who will find our modern fleet of ships a perfect match for many of their clientele.”
