MSC Cruises retires its smallest ship, the Melody

By Tom Stieghorst
MSC Cruises said it has withdrawn the 1,000-passenger MSC Melody from its fleet.

Melody has sailed for MSC since 1995, when it was acquired as the Starship Atlantic. It is the smallest ship in the MSC fleet.

In a statement, MSC said the move affirms its decision to focus on cutting-edge service and reflects a continued commitment to comfort, elegance and technology across the fleet.

Passengers booked on the Melody for 2013 will get a variety of cruise options, including upgrades on newer ships, and will be contacted over the next few days, either directly or through agents, MSC said.
