Welcome to the World MSC Bellissima

A large Irish contingent were dressed in their finery for the black-tie, naming ceremony of the MSC Bellissima. Held in a marquee on Southampton Quay, Holly Willoughby undertook Master of Ceremonies with performances by tenors Andrea and Matteo Bocelli followed by a performance by Cirque du Soleil at Sea. Madame Sophia Loren, Godmother of 13 ships in the MSC fleet, was on hand to cut the ribbon to break a bottle of champagne against the hull “to wish her a long, safe and successful life of service at sea”.
