Royal Princess Float Out
Pictures from the Float-out Ceremony for Royal Princess on August 16, 2012 at Fincantieri Shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy

Following the Italian shipyard’s tradition, the float out of a ship is celebrated when the madrina cuts the cord that begins the flow of water into the ship’s dock. Victoria Nash was chosen to serve as madrina because she has a special connection to the first Royal Princess – as a baby, she was christened aboard the ship.
