Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On March - 21 - 2009

According to Seatrade Insider, the MSC Fantasia has been retained to accommodate leaders for the 2009 Group of Eight summit in Sardinia, which could mean President Obama may be among the leaders and dignitaries onboard MSC Cruises’ newest ship.

G8 leaders will gather in the Sardinian island of La Maddalena July 8-10. France, the United States and Russia will be represented by their heads of state, while the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Italy and Canada will be represented by their heads of government.

The use of MSC Fantasia is part of the G8 commitment to a zero environmental impact summit. During the summit, a range of measures will be taken to safeguard the environment. Among them is the use of MSC Fantasia, which earned ‘Six Golden Pearls’ from Bureau Veritas, confirming compliance with the highest environmental, health and safety standards.

The ship’s environmental components range from technology to cut electricity consumption in the staterooms and public areas to advanced wastewater treatment, waste recycling and non-toxic hull coating.
