MSC Divina Christened in Marseille

MSC Divina was christened by her godmother, the legendary Sophia Loren, in Marseille on Saturday night (May 26, 2012). The ship is getting more attention than normal from American cruisers since the ship will be MSC's first ship beyond 100,000 tons in the Caribbean (139,400 grt - about 50% larger than MSC Poesia, which is currently operating in the Caribbean during the winter months). MSC Divina will arrive for her first Caribbean season during the winter of 2013-2014.

Here Sophia Loren cuts the ribbon which releases the bottle against the bow. In the photo below, the naming party can be seen on stage (lower right) along with MSC Divina's officers, just after the bottle breaks and a shower of confetti rains down on the crowd.

MSC Divina is going to be a standout in the Caribbean (and everywhere else she sails). We've selected a couple photos (below) of her interior to show her sleek and stylish, modern European interiors.
