Cruise ship[edit]

On June 4, 2010 a letter of intent was signed between STX France and GNMTC, to build one 140,000 Gross tonnage cruise ship similar to the existing MSC Cruises Fantasia class ships MSC Fantasia, and MSC Splendida. Nominally named Phoenicia she was specified by Hannibal Gaddafi, who had a 120-ton shark aquarium integrated into the design.[1] During construction, the Libyan Civil War broke out on 15 February 2011. In June 2011, STX France cancelled the contract, and began looking for a new buyer of the hull.[2][3] It was announced on March 13, 2012, that MSC had reached an agreement to buy the ship for 550 million euros, and be named MSC Preziosa.[4]
