A ship for screen goddess Sophia Loren to be proud of
Italian screen goddess Sophia Loren is MSC Cruises' resident godmother, so it was perhaps only natural that one day one of its ships would be named after her.
MSC Divina is that ship.
Standing 18 decks high, the ship may prove to be as iconic as the actress herself, but never as beautiful. That would be an impossibility.
MSC Cruises’ new flagship MSC Divina
The actress had disclosed to Gianluigi Aponte, MSC’s owner and a close personal friend, that she would one day love to have a ship named after her. It was a wish he instantly fulfilled by suggesting the name Divina, which means ‘divine’.
Measuring 1,094ft in length and 125ft wide, MSC Divina has a total of 1,739 cabins and is capable of travelling at speeds of up 23.7 knots.
MSC cruises offers year-round Mediterranean cruises as well as Northern European cruises, trans-Atlantic ocean voyages, Caribbean, North and South America, itineraries and Indian Ocean, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates. More...
