Default Flag handover ceremony

we just had the handover ceremony to transfer the ship from the shipyard at SDt Nazair France to the company, MSC Cruises. The pictures are really good and I have a video of the champagne bottrle breaking - a ceremony which is tyoically done at the naming ceremony which will be held in a week in Barcelona with Sophia Loren as the Godmother.

Please enjoy the pictures. There is one of the bridge overhead where you can see an officers feet in the peephole that looks straight down.

Then there are the before and after pictures of the flagpoles:
