onboard MSC Orchestra!
To MSC’s managing director Theo van Ravesteyn, it is a long-held dream come true. To celebrate the Dutch anniversary of the Italian Mediterranean Shipping Company on May 9, 2015 MSC Orchestra arrived at the Cruise Port Rotterdam. MSC Splendida visited a week earlier. MSC Orchestra stayed the entire weekend, on Saturday celebrating MSC Nederland’s 30th anniversary.
The Mediterranean Shipping Company has cruise ships and more than 400 container ships. It is the second largest container shipping company in the world, after Maersk. Van Ravesteyn joined MSC Nederland back in April 1985, exactly one month after the formation. Today the company provides 300 jobs. The largest container ship in the world, MSC Oscar, visited Rotterdam earlier this year.
