Default Inaugural Ceremony Video

We just had the naming ceremony with Mary Hart. Unfortunately, I can’t upload picture right now because the satellite is acting up.

The ceremony was touching, with grandchildren, someone singing the National Anthem and Frank Del Rio talking about how long it has taken to build this ship, the first newbuild for Oceania. Even Jacques Pepin spoke, receiving hhis master commodores jacket from Frank Del Rio.

The Champaign bottle hit a ship with high accuracy and literally exploded. It was a good shot and had been planned right, with a cherry picker almost 100 feet in the air told the extra large champagne bottle back from the ship. When it let go, that bottle went flying.




I have also uploaded many photos and I have more to come - this isa beautiful ship. Many of the accents are Lalique Crystal which I didsnt realize. Furthermore, all of the walls are cobvered in suede (!). This is such a classy ship - it is like what Crystal would build if they buil a new ship.
Here is a link to the first photo albums:
