It’s now under a week away until the party of the year! The MSC Naming ceremony for their new ship – Bellissima.

A few months ago I was delighted to have received an Invitation to the weekend of celebrations in Southampton and be a part of MSC’s special occasion.

I will be spending 2 nights onboard, along with other specially selected guests, where we will be fine dined and have a chance to explore what looks like to be a beautiful and grandiose ship (and it doesn’t surprise me after visiting MSC Meriveglia last year for the day). We will be amongst celebrities including Holly Willoughby, Nile Rogers, Craig David … I simply cannot wait.

I feel so honoured to have been invited along and although I’ve known about the weekend for a few months now, a package arrived for me this week with the ingenious idea of a ‘message in a bottle’. I had a replica champagne bottle delivered with a message about the weekend inside. The bottle had been made from sugar glass and I was able to have my very own Sophia Loren moment to get to smash the bottle to receive my message. Sophia Loren is the Godmother of MSC and she christens each ship with the infamous smashing of the champagne bottle wishing the ship luck for her time at sea.

I will of course be sharing my weekend on my blog and social media accounts so make sure you follow me.
