This is The Inaugral of the Grand Princess back in '97. The biggest cruise ship of the time - then they just kept building. The naming ceremony was in New york, and was named by Olivier d'havilland. I was there, and served Lord and Lady sterling nibbles in the bar.

Hi Louise

You have got one up on me. I have yet to do a naming ceremony. I was present for the Baltic / Suffolk renaming.
I have seen these three ships, all either arriving and leaving Rotterdam. They come very close to the ship where we are berthed. Pretty big.

Regards

Karl
