PRESS RELEASE_Hamburg, Germany (April 30, 2018) - MSC Meraviglia officially made her maiden call at the port of Hamburg yesterday, marking the start of her new — as well as the brand’s best and most accessible-ever — season in Northern Europe. At the traditional exchange of crests attended by Senator Horch from the City of Hamburg as well as representatives from the Ports and other institutions, media and travel partners, MSC Cruises, the Swiss-based world’s largest privately owned cruise line and now for the third consecutive year brand market leader across all of Europe, announced that MSC Grandiosa will be christened in Hamburg on November 2, 2019.
“We are delighted to announce the christening of MSC Grandiosa here in Hamburg. Since our last christening in Germany of MSC Magnifica in 2010, we have, as a company, embarked on a journey of strong growth, and the German cruise guest has embraced our brand and our offering in a strong way. It is only natural that we would look to christen in Germany our next flagship and the first of the Meraviglia-Plus ships to come into service, MSC Grandiosa,” said Pierfrancesco Vago, Executive Chairman of MSC Cruises. “We hold a special relationship with Germany overall, and we are looking forward to celebrating with our German partners next November as well as welcoming our international guests to this historic port, rich in Maritime tradition and heritage.”
