DFDS Naming Ceremony

"The best naming ceremony I've ever attended." - CEO DFDS

We organized the naming ceremony of a new vessel for one of the world's biggest shipping companies - DFDS. The event included the actual ceremony, a lunch and a tour on the vessel.

Our guests arrived in the port in the morning, where we welcomed them in a nice and cozy tent, specially built for the occasion. Our guests enjoyed a snack and a drink after which we escorted them to the vessel. After a short introduction the vessel's Godmother smashed the bottle against the bow of the vessel: "May she bring fair winds and good fortune to all who sail on her!". 

After the official ceremony we returned to the tent where we served a three-course lunch and enjoyed the music of a classical jazz band.
