The voice-enabled virtual personal assistant will be found in every cabin and can answer hundreds of questions about the cruise.
ZOE will be able to speak seven languages so can interact with cruise passengers from around the world.
On 4 March, MSC Bellissima will depart on her maiden voyage, which will take her to Genoa, Italy, where she will spend her inaugural season, offering Western Mediterranean cruises.
In November 2019, she will reposition to the Gulf, providing weekly sailings out of Dubai. In spring 2020 she will be deployed to Asia.
Bellissima is the ship for all seasons, with plenty of outdoor and indoor public spaces.
With a length of just 315 metres, she has been designed to be able to access most of the world’s cruise ports.
