MSC Cruise New Ship Shrouded in Mystery?

The STX Europe shipyard in France has just floated out their latest cruise ship. The ship was originally built for the Libyan Government as their initial entry into the cruise market.

After the recent political turmoil in the country, the milestone payments for the ship have been missed and the ship has been reportedly for sale. It has been reported that MSC Cruises has already purchased the ship - since when it emerged from the drydock, the ship had tyhe MSC Logo on its funnel and the name MSC Preziosa stenciled on the bow.

An official announcement from MSC Cruises is expected shortly.

UPDATE: The post above was written late last week. Earlier this week, MSC did announce they were taking possesion of the MSC Preziosa. The worst kept secret is now confirmed.
