MSC Fantasia Delivered

There was a changing of the flag ceremony as part of MSC Fantasia's (pronounced Fanta-SEE-a) delivery today at the STX Europe yard in St. Nazaire (France). Four-year-old Asia Aponte (granddaughter of MSC owner Gianluigi Aponte) was the godmother of the flag ceremony and gave the signal for the bottle of champagne to be released against the bow. 

At 133,500-tons, MSC Fantasia is the largest cruise ship operated by a European owner. The ship is shown below in the new MSC livery and logo.
