In true Italian style, the newest addition to the MSC Cruises fleet is set to be christened by iconic actress Sophia Loren.

MSC Poesia will be the first ship to be launched outside of Italy when she makes her debut in Dover on April 5th 2008.

A Musica class vessel, MSC Poesia will be the focal point of a celebration featuring live performances from Andrea Bocelli, KT Tunstall, Peter Grant and the Ronnie Scott band.

"We are tremendously excited about launching the MSC Poesia in April. This is the first time an MSC Cruises ship has been christened in the UK, demonstrating how committed MSC Cruises are to the British market," Claudia Baino, Managing Director at MSC Cruises commented according to the Independent.

He added that the event promised to be "spectacular", noting that Sophia Loren would add "Italian glamour" to the celebrations.
