Le Havre Welcomes MSC for First Interporting Call

The port of Le Havre rolled out the red carpet for MSC Cruises for the Italian cruise line’s first interporting call in the French port.

Embarking passengers were welcomed by Miss Le Havre, who offered roses to the women onboard the MSC Opera.

Later in the afternoon, a young Dutch orchestra performed two concerts, one on the seafront and the other opposite the quay where MSC Opera was moored. This was a good opportunity for passengers and local people to share a friendly moment.

The departure was particularly touching with the traditional horn exchange between the ship and the harbor station. Tugs joined the party greeting the passengers, spectators and ship lovers with their water jets.
