Cruise liner MSC Cruises has reached an agreement for an EUR 1.5 billion (USD 1.74 billion) financing for two new Seaside EVO class cruise ships.

BNP Paribas, Unicredit and Cassa Depositi e Prestiti will provide EUR 1.5bn in financing for two Seaside EVO class passengerships. The financing syndicate of lenders also include SACE SIMEST, the Italian ECA, fully backing the credit line and stabilising the interest rate.

Partner Robert Platt advised MSC Cruises on the shipbuilding contracts. Lindsey and the team also advised MSC Cruises on the financing of the first two original Seaside class ships in 2015 and their delivery in November 2017 and June 2018….
