mscThis week, the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from Trieste, Italy at the shipyards of Fincantieri, where they are building the largest ship in the history of the yard, MSC Cruises’ Seaside. MSC Cruises has more ships on order than any other cruise line. Peter Greenberg will be there for the coin ceremony and to report on the explosion of shipbuilding worldwide. Joining Peter will be Karoline Steckley, Director of the American Italian Association in Trieste, who reports on the expat life, off-the-brochure Italian seaside towns like Trieste, the different Italian dialects, and the surprising significance of coffee in Trieste. John Honeywell, Editor for World of Cruising, talks about the economics of the cruise industry and what it means to travelers. Pierfrancesco Vago, Executive Chairman of MSC Cruises, talks about the history and mythology of the shipping industry, as well as the real story about the coin ceremony. Gene Sloan of USA TODAY reports on the consolidation of the cruise industry, how one cruise line has purchased its own shipyard, and the new cruise itineraries in Europe and China that might surprise you. Kathy McCabe, Host and Executive Producer of Dream of Italy on PBS, discusses her favorite places in South Italy and the two best months to travel there. There’s all of that and more as the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from the Fincantieri Shipyard with MSC Cruises in Trieste, Italy.
