MSC Divina Launch in Marseille
Last night in Marseille, France, the latest jewel in the MSC Cruises’ fleet, MSC Divina, was christened in suitably elegant style by international screen legend Sophia Loren. The exclusive high-profile event included a gala dinner and entertainment from illustrious performers in the company of international celebrities, selected guests, media, authorities and the top management of MSC Cruises.
At the heart of the festivities was not only the addition of the 12th ship to the MSC Cruises’ ultra-modern fleet, but also the Mediterranean heritage of which the company is so proud. The event was themed Med with Passion, and MSC Divina herself represents the embodiment of Mediterranean style. Every detail of the on board experience and the christening itself were carefully considered to reflect the colours, the perfumes, the history and the culture of the area, offering guests an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy the region’s celebrated values of authenticity and warm hospitality.
Continuing MSC Cruises’ tradition of christening its ships in different European ports, the company and the port itself yesterday paid homage to Marseille and its centuries-old customs.
