MSC Divinia Completes Initial Sea Trials

STX France reports that MSC Divina has completed her initial sea trials and returned to the STX yard at Saint-Nazaire (France). During the three-day trial, more than 60 separate tests were performed covering everything from speed and manageability to sound levels and vibration. Further testing will continue up until the handover on May 19.

The ship will then immediately leave on its 7-day maiden cruise to Marseille where it will be christened by Sophia Loren on May 26.
