MSC Preziosa Christened In Genoa (Photos)

Earlier this week, MSC Cruises welcomed the MSC Preziosa as the 12th ship in the MSC fleet. Preziosa was welcomed into the fleet by her godmother, as well as many other MSC ship’s godmother, film legend Sophia Loren. With the addition of the Preziosa to the fleet, MSC’s Fantasia class of ships has finally been completed.

Along with the christening itself, the event included a gala dinner prepared by a team of Eataly chefs as well as entertainment from top Italian and international performers. The events all took place in the Port of Genoa, which is the Preziosa’s new homeport. From Genoa, she will sail a variety of Mediterranean cruises starting this month.
