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.

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'.

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! "
