MSC divina docking in Sicily

Sophia Loren is closely linked with MSC Divina, the 140,000-tonnes cruise ship - a monster capable of carrying 4500 passengers.

But - when it drops anchor at St Mark’s Square, Venice, it has the people of Venice up in arms.

This has been reported in mailonline dated 6th of June 2012.

Legendary film actress Sophia Loren had christened the ship recently and the people of Venice want her to dissociate herself from promoting the ship.

MSC Divina is 330-m long with a total of 1,739 cabins. Its top traveling speed is 23.7 knots and it has a first-class suite named after Sophia Loren.

It is decorated with large pictures of the Oscar-winning actress at various stages of her film career.

The ship also has lifts for passengers, an infinity pool, restaurants, casino and disco.

It seems this huge ship not only obstructs the view all around but its wake is so powerful that it shakes the very foundation of many historical old and heritage buildings.

The general opinion is that the ship is too large to enter the lagoon of Venice and, with the memories of Concordia still fresh in the minds, no one wants another disaster.
