4. Antonio Paradiso’s tweet on MSC Cruises becoming the world’s second biggest cruise line
Antonio Paradiso, managing director UK and Ireland at MSC Cruises, shared an article MSC Cruises surpassing Carnival Cruise line to become the world’s second biggest cruise line.
The Carnival was once the biggest cruise line in the world because of its passenger capacity of ships, followed by Royal Caribbean which now occupies the top spot after the cruise line has added more bigger ships to its fleet.
However, recent developments driven by pandemic-induced downsizing at Carnival, has caused it to slip to the third spot, after the MSC Cruises, which took delivery of a giant new vessel on this year.
Consequently, MSC Cruises is likely to surpass the fun ship line as the world’s second biggest cruise brand in the next three years.

5. Doug Parker’s tweet on Royal Caribbean’s onboard air system being safe
Doug Parker, a producer and host of the Cruise Radio podcast, shared an article on Royal Caribbean’s onboard air system being safe for passengers. The University of Nebraska Medical Centre and Royal Caribbean Group, a US-based cruise holding company, collaborated to study the transmission of aerosol particles through a ship’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system.
The independent study was conducted aboard Oasis of the Seas, a cruise owned by the Royal Caribbean Group. The findings suggested that the transmission happens through spaces and HVAC system. On surfaces and air, it was found to be undetectable.
