Sophia Loren Christens MSC Cruises Latest Megaship, MSC Meraviglia

Capable of accommodating 5,714 passengers and the biggest ship to launch this year, MSC Cruises newest ship, the Meraviglia, was christened by movie icon Sophia Loren this May.


The glamorous event in Le Havre featured entertainment from top international performers and an exclusive gala dinner to celebrate the 13th addition to the MSC Cruises fleet. It is the first of 11 new MSC Cruises ships due to come into service over the next 10 years as part of a €9 billion investment plan.


The highlight of the evening was a parade of the ship’s officers, when Loren cut the ribbon and named MSC Meraviglia with a firework display as the brilliant backdrop. Mrs Loren has held a close relationship with MSC Cruises for more than a decade and became godmother of MSC Lirica in 2003.
