The MSC Simfonia visits the Port of Maó for the first time

Maó, 10/05/2013

This morning and for the first time, the Port of Maó played host to the MSC Simfonia, the largest vessel ever to berth at the Minorcan port. To commemorate this historic event, a simple plaque-exchanging ceremony was held on board the ship which was attended by the Mayor of Maó, Àgueda Reynés; the Minorcan Regional Tourism Minister, Salomé Cabrera; the APB Chairman, José María Urrutia, and MSC’s General Manager in Spain, Emiliano González.


The MSC Simfonia, which is 251 metres long and weighs 58,625 GT, arrived early this morning at the Port of Maó and set sail at around three p.m. The City Council organised a Minorcan horse dressage exhibition on the quayside in the vessel’s honour to the delight of the over 2,000 passengers on board. The MSC Simfonia is set to call at the Port of Maó on 27 occasions this season.
