Andrea Bocelli to perform with son at Bellissima christening on Saturday

With the countdown continuing for the christening of MSC Bellissima in Southampton on Saturday (2 March), MSC Cruises reveals that the world-famous tenor will perform alongside the up-and-coming Matteo Bocelli.

Father and son will perform their best-selling duet Fall on Me from Andrea’s new album Sì. Andrea Bocelli will then sing during the traditional Officers’ Parade that pays homage to the crew from the ship and recognises their service and dedication.

Other performances will come from Cirque du Soleil at Sea and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and three-time Grammy Award-winner Nile Rodgers and his band Chic.

Master of Ceremonies for the evening’s proceedings is the English TV presenter Holly Willoughby. Screen goddess Sophia Loren will perform the ribbon-cutting and naming in her traditional capacity as godmother.

MSC Cruises supports the Andrea Bocelli Foundation through guest donations on board MSC Seaside. The funds raised support ABF’s valuable work in Haiti, one of the poorest countries in the world.

MSC Bellissima is the second ship in the innovative Meraviglia class and the fourth of MSC Cruises next-generation ships to come into service in just over 18 months.
