During the visit, the two Consular Officers met with the Italian personnel on board, including Captain Mariano Manfuso and Chief Engineer Officer Vito Torre, and learned of the commendable work carried out the ship's Senior Officers and its numerous Italian crew members. The "Island Princess" belongs to Princess Cruises, a line owned by the Carnival Corporation whose fleet is largely made up of cruise ships built by Italian ship-building company Fincantieri. vel
