Six months before the official christening ceremony of MSC Grandiosa on November 9 in the Port of Hamburg, MSC Cruises announced that popular TV star Michelle Hunziker will host the event as the line’s newest flagship will be named.
TV presenter, actress, singer, and model Hunziker also hosted the christening ceremony of MSC Seaview in Genoa last year. Michelle Hunziker (born in Switzerland) has grown up in Italy and speaks 5 languages. She embodies internationality with joie de vivre, a sense of family, and a Mediterranean soul, just like the MSC Cruises company does.
MSC Grandiosa is the 3rd Meraviglia generation ship and the first of Meraviglia-Plus class. The vessel will become the 5th new passenger liner that MSC has launched in just 2,5 years as part of company's EUR 13.6 billion investment plan spanning over 10 years.
Grandiosa is due to be followed by a further twelve ships through 2027 with her sistership, MSC Virtuosa launching in October 2020.
