Selection of celebrities to attend MSC Poesia launch

Date Posted: 25 Mar 2008
MSC Poesia is set to be launched in Dover next month, to a star studded reception.

MSC Cruises has revealed that the launch will be attended by their Royal Highnesses Prince and Princess Michael of Kent on April 5th 2008.

The new cruise ship is being launched by godmother and Hollywood actress Sophia Loren and will represent the first time an MSC Cruises' ship has been launched outside of Italy.

Other celebrities in attendance at the event will be Italian opera legend Andrea Bocelli and singer-songwriter KT Tunstall who will both perform at the naming ceremony.

Pierfrancesco Vago, chief executive officer of MSC Cruises, stated: "The christening event will be spectacular thanks to the presence of ... Sophia Loren and the talented maestro Andrea Bocelli and now, the presence of their Royal Highnesses Prince and Princess Michael of Kent."

Scottish singer KT Tunstall found fame in the UK with songs 'Suddenly I See' and 'Other Side of the World'.
