THE LONGEST ZIP LINE EVER INSTALLED ON A CRUISE SHIP
Following the enormous success of the Zip line installed on the cruise ship MSC Seaside, launched in 2017, our collaboration with MSC Cruises continues with a new challenge.
MSC Seaview broke MSC Seaside’s record for the largest cruise ship ever built in Italy. For this incredible feat of engineering and marine architecture, we designed two record-breaking parallel Zip lines. 150 meters long, our Zip lines are the longest ever installed on a ship!
The Zip lines are located on the upper deck: during the 15-second flight, passengers reach a top speed of 45 km/h and enjoy fabulous views of the ship and the sea. The Zip line has a capacity of one rider per minute.
The first passengers have already taken off: the Zip line is a favourite among available attractions on board, enhancing the leisure opportunities of the cruise ship.
MSC Seaview was launched on 9 June 2018 with a spectacular and entertaining ceremony in Genoa involving VIPs and celebrities from the Italian show business. An unprecedented party for a record-breaking ship: MSC Seaview was built by Fincantieri in the Monfalcone shipyard. Like its sister ship MSC Seaside, MSC Seaview has a tonnage of more than 153,000 GT. The ship has 2,066 cabins and can accommodate more than 5,000 passengers, and its cruising speed is 21.8 knots.
MSC Seaview’s inaugural cruise was in the western Mediterranean: the lucky guests spent a week at sea, visiting the ports of Marseille, Genoa, Naples, Messina, Valletta and Barcelona. During the 2018-19 winter season MSC Seaview will travel to the warmer climes of Brazil and South America – and our Zip line will be on board to entertain and thrill all the passengers!
