Screen Icon Loren To Godmother MSC Poesia

MSC Poesia's April 5 inaugural in Dover, England, will be presided over by film legend Sophia Loren, who, like the cruise line's heritage, is Italian. In addition, Grammy-nominated singer KT Tunstall will provide live music entertainment. The 1,275-stateroom MSC Poesia will subsequently sail a 13-night pre-inaugural voyage from Dover to Venice, where the ship will be positioned for the summer 2008. Visit http://www.msccruisesusa.com.
