MSC Bellissima UK Debut
The brand new 171,598grt flagship of MSC, arrived in Southampton on the 1st March 2019 for her showcase and naming ceremony.  We got there early, knowing new ships bringout the selfish gits who deliberately block your view, you never see otherwise.  The cargo ship, MSC Vidhi was waiting in berth 102, having arrived after midnight.  That would be sailing on the 3rd.  The marquee for the naming ceremony had been built while tugs Svitzer Alma and Svitzer Harty were the firetug escort as Bellissima entered the port area.  Afterwards I went over to get photos before my hospital appointment.
