MSC Splendida returns, longest ship to ever visit Ireland

The longest ship ever to visit Ireland, the impressive 333m MSC Splendida, returned to Dublin this morning marking the start of Dublin Port’s 2016 cruise season.

Currently the 11th longest cruise ship in the world, the MSC Splendida arrived in Dublin from Greenock, Scotland carrying over 4,600 passengers and crew on board. Her inaugural call made maritime history when she became the longest vessel ever to visit Dublin Port last summer.
