MSC Musica & Sophia Loren ...

It’s official: MSC Cruises took delivery of MSC Musica in St. Nazaire, in the presence of assorted VIPs from the cruise line and ship yard. But the glamour of it all escalates on June 29th when godmother Sophia Loren officially launches the vessel in Venice. MSC Musica, the latest ship custom-designed for MSC Cruises, carries advanced technology and security developed by Chantiers de l’Atlantique/Aker Yards France. Most staterooms are oceanview, with balconies. After celebratory hoopla, MSC Musica departs Venice on her inaugural Mediterranean cruise, calling in Greece, Turkey and Croatia. MSC Musica is the first of five MSC ships commissioned from Aker Yards France. Next up: MSC Orchestra, followed by MSC Poesia and MSC Fantasia in 2008 and MSC Serenata in 2009. Fantasia and Serenata are the biggest ships ever commissioned by a European line.
