Relive the Magic of MSC Preziosa’s Christening

We christened MSC Preziosa, our fourth Fantasia Class Ship and 12th new vessel, on the weekend.

During the christening celebrations in Genoa, there wase a flash mob that included two other MSC Cruise ships: MSC Splendida and MSC Opera. Guests on all ships were briefed and took part in a dance to music involving a coordinated lighting show with music and dancing. This was a world first at sea!

Maestro, Ennio Morricone, preformed to which Managing Director Lynne Clarke said: “We are so privileged to be watching and listening to Morricone perform one of his magnificent masterpieces. An absolutely precious moment.”


Italian singer-songwriter, Gino Paoli, added to the incredible event, as well as shows and of course the signature cutting of the ribbon by our god mother and screen legend, Sophia Loren before fireworks danced across the sky and MSC Preziosa set sail into the night toward Naples.
