MSC Cruises to Broadcast Royal Wedding

Italians love a party, especially when it includes a wedding, and they aren’t about to miss what has been dubbed the event of the century. A global audience of 2.4 billion is expected to watch the royal wedding of Britain’s Prince William and Catherine Middleton on Friday, April 29 and MSC Cruises’ guests won’t miss the festivities.

With the exception of MSC Sinfonia and MSC Opera, which will not be sailing in European waters, the royal wedding will be broadcast in English across all the MSC fleet.

Bars on board will be serving a variety of champagnes and Prosecco, an Italian white wine, with a special commemorative royal cocktail (sparkling wine, cognac and Grand Marnier), so guests will be able to raise a glass—or two—to toast the happy couple.

If your invitation to the royal wedding failed to arrive (alas, I haven’t received mine either), you still have the opportunity to join the festivities aboard an MSC Cruises ship. For more information, visit

I think its fantastic that the cruise lines are doing something to celebrate the Royal Wedding - its a big day in British history and I'm sure there will be many people watching it.

Nearly all the cruise lines will be broadcasting the royal wedding on their ships and celebrating the event with special activities.

I'll certainly be tuned in at home!

Best, Linda
