MSCs latest passenger cruise ship, Splendida christened this month by Sophia Loren in Barcelona, Spain is the biggest and most glamorous vessel ever built by a European shipping company. She cost a staggering $4 billion. No expense was spared by the privately-owned Italian cruise operator in getting her afloat.
We have exclusive video reports all this week to give you some idea of what this maritime marvel will offer Australian and New Zealand cruisers, starting today with the actual christening ceremony by Sophia, to be followed tomorrow by the gastronomic treat that awaits passengers; on Wednesday we’ll show you the amazing variety of attractions on board; Thursday we’ll take you on a fascinating behind-the-scenes tour of the kitchen and laundry operations, and Friday a look at the exclusive MSC Yacht Club.
