Naming Ceremony of MSC Virtuosa to Take Place in Dubai

MSC Cruises in partnership with Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism), DP World, and Emirates Airline, have announced that the naming ceremony for the line’s newest flagship, MSC Virtuosa, will take place in Dubai on 27th November at Mina Rashid (Port Rashid).

The event reflects the growing importance of Dubai as a must-visit destination for global travellers and cruising’s important contribution to the city’s tourism industry.

The newest addition to the MSC Cruises fleet derives her name from the Italian word virtuoso and refers to the master craftsmen who designed and developed this masterpiece, which will be the most technologically and environmentally advanced cruise vessel ever deployed in the UAE.

Her naming will be celebrated with a stunning array of live entertainment and performances awaiting the specially invited guests from around the world as well as from across the Gulf region – one of MSC Cruises’ key markets where the company is brand leader.

Further details of the line-up of entertainment events will be revealed in due course.

The naming ceremony event will take place in compliance with all public health and safety protocols established by the Dubai government, as well as with the support of MSC Cruises’ Health and Safety protocol that allowed the line’s ships to restart their operations in this region.

The occasion will also be a part of the celebrations surrounding the Golden Jubilee of the UAE and will be staged as Dubai welcomes the world to Expo 2020.
