MSC Seashore to Be Named at Private Island
MSC Cruises has announced that its newest flagship, MSC Seashore, will officially be named at its private island Ocean Cay.
The naming ceremony will take place on November 17, with actress Sophia Loren acting as godmother, as she has for 15 other MSC ships.
The event will also serve as the formal inauguration of Ocean Cay, which opened to guests in late 2019 just months before the industry shutdown.
