MSC Cruises executive chairman, Pierfrancesco Vago announced that MSC Cruises’ next new ship, MSC Grandiosa, will be named in Hamburg on November 2, 2019.
The Hamburg naming will follow the christening of MSC Bellissima in Southampton next March.
Vago said: “We are delighted to announce the christening of MSC Grandiosa here in Hamburg.
“Since our last christening in Germany of MSC Magnifica in 2010, as a company we have embarked on a journey of strong growth and the German cruise guest has embraced our brand and our offering in a strong way so it is only natural that we would look to christen in Germany our next flagship and the first of the Meraviglia-plus ships to come into service, MSC Grandiosa.
“We hold a special relationship with Germany overall and we are looking forward to celebrating with our German partners next November as well as welcoming our international guests to this historic port, rich in maritime tradition and heritage.”
MSC Grandiosa will feature new shows from Cirque du Soleil at Sea, a longer 98.5-metre LED Sky screen and an even larger Mediterranean-style promenade with a new bar and lounge, L’Atelier Bistrot where guests can find seats, a stage and even a dancefloor.
