MSC Cruises hasannounced the line-up for the official launch and naming ceremony of MSC Seaside, set for 21DEC in PortMiami. And it’s star-studded.
Headlining entertainment for the event will be international singing star, Ricky Martin, who will perform some of his hits that helped bring Latin music to the forefront of popular music. Also taking to the stage will be world-famous tenor, Andrea Bocelli, whose classical career has taken him all over the world – including performances for four U.S. presidents, three Popes, the British Royal Family, and several Prime Ministers.
Making a guest appearance at the event will be Miami football legend and Hall of Fame quarterback, Dan Marino, who played for the Miami Dolphins for 17 years.
In charge of it all will be actor and popular American TV host, Mario Lopez, who will serve as the Master of Ceremonies for the evening.
An MSC Cruises’ naming ceremony would not be complete without the ship’s Godmother, Sophia Loren, who has played the leading role in this time-honoured tradition since 2003. As one of the most celebrated Italian actresses of our time, the ageless Loren will christen the ship with a ribbon-cutting and officially name the new vessel.
Of course, MSC hopes the main star of the show will be none other than MSC Seaside, as the line makes a big push to expand its presence in North America.
