MSC Seashore first ship to have new Safe Air system

MSC Seashore first ship to have new Safe Air system

Ultraviolet rays will zap air conditioning at source

MSC Cruises is to install a ‘Safe Air’ system on board MSC Seashore, which is due to be delivered in July 2021.

The new ship, which is currently under construction at Fincantieri’s Monfalcone shipyard, will be MSC’s most technologically advanced ship – and the first of two Seaside Evo-class vessels.

The Safe Air system uses UV-C lamps and type C ultraviolet rays with the air conditioning system. The air flow is radiated at source with a wavelength light that hits organic particles and prevents the circulation of air pollutants, including bacteria, viruses and mould.

The ‘Safe Air’ sanitation system was developed by Fincantieri’s designers and technicians and the virology laboratory of the International Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, a leading global research institute headquartered in Trieste, Italy.

MSC Cruises was the first major cruise line to embark on sailings following the global suspension of cruises. MSC Gradiosa has now completed nine seven-night voyages and has now been joined by MSC Magnifica, which is sailing 10-night cruises.

All guests and crew are given a Covid-19 test before boarding. There are also temperature checks, increased sanitation checks and protected ‘bubble’ shore excursions.
