Largest Ship Ever In Split Arrives

Italian cruise ship the MSC Fantasia has opened the ‘cruiser’ season on Croatia’s Adriatic coast when it arrived in the Dalmatian city of Split today (Saturday). The 3,500 passenger ‘monster’ is the largest ship ever to arrive in Split.

“The MSC Fantasia cruise ship is 333 metres long and is the biggest ship to ever arrive in Split. Because of its size it could not dock in at the port but in front of it,” said Split port authorities.

The cruise ship will remain in Split until this evening, with most of the passengers heading off to Medugorje for a day trip.
