The latest addition to the MSC Cruises fleet, MSC Fantasia has officially launched in Naples.

Described as a "breathtaking new flagship", the Fantasia was christened during a glittering ceremony, with Hollywood legend Sophia Loren cutting the ribbon.

The ship will also feature a Formula One simulator, which was officially opened by Grand Prix driver Jarno Trulli.

Commenting on the occasion, Pierfrancesco Vago, the cruise line's chief executive, said he was delighted to be christening the ship in the "extraordinary city of Naples".
"MSC Fantasia is not only a beautiful ship but also a triumph of environmentally-friendly design and technological innovation, where every step taken on board holds the promise of exciting new experiences," he added.

A spectacular show, featuring fireworks, dancing and musical performances, was also put on for the occasion.

MSC Fantasia will leave for her maiden voyage tomorrow (December 20th).

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
