MSC Changes Ship Name

MSC Cruises has scrapped the name of its second post-Panamax in favor of a new one. MSC Serenata will now, instead, be called MSC Splendida to better reflect the ship's design. "This ship had to be named MSC Splendida," said MSC Cruises CEO, Pier Francesco Vago, "a ship that has been created to amaze and inspire guests." Splendida will join the MSC fleet in 2009, just after its sister ship, MSC Fantasia, begins service in autumn 2008.
