We started in the shipyard at St nazaire France. This is the ship they were originally going to use for the G8 summit here in Europe. Then there was an earthquake in Italy and the Italian president chose to move the location at the last minute. That was supposed to be this week!
So, they turned it into a revenue cruise at the last minute. We arwe sailing to Vigo and Lisbon Portugal, Mallorca and eventually Barceloa where we will have the naming ceremony presided by godmother SOPHIA LOREN.
That is different from the handover ceremony, but I suspect i will have the same spectacular view.
