Introducing the world's newest cruise ship – does MSC Bellissima live up to its name?

MSC Cruises will be hoping the Bellissima will live up to its name (which means “possessing intense beauty, delighting the senses”) when it launches on March 1. 

The 5,686-passenger ship will christened by cinema legend Sophia Loren on March 2 in Southampton, with TV presenter Holly Willoughby, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and three-time Grammy Award-winner Nile Rodgers and his band Chic, and Southampton’s own chart-topper Craig David, on hand to entertain guests at the naming ceremony. 

Bellissima, the fourth ship to join the cruise line’s fleet in two years, will stay in Southampton for three days before embarking on its inaugural season in the Western Mediterranean
