Invitation to a ship inauguration

Whilst there are huge problems connected with Covid-19 the development of live video networking is a bonus.

On Friday 27 November Brittany Ferries and Portsmouth Harbour are offering a virtual inauguration of Galicia, at 42,000 tons the cross-Channel operator’s first new-build in over a decade.

The ship will operate two round trips each week between Portsmouth and Santander in northern Spain, and one weekly round trip between Portsmouth and Cherbourg.

For a normal introduction the line supporters would be invited, local VIPS, the travel trade and the press.  Space would be limited.  On this occasion it is open to all and a chance of a tour on an advanced ship setting new standards for water-borne travel to Europe.  

Termed “ferry of tomorrow” she has been designed and decorated to showcase the colours and feelings of her namesake, the fantastic Celtic region of Galicia, easily reached from Santander.

I do like this idea but there is no networking and I suppose we have to supply our own Champagne. Or perhaps Brittany ferries will send to their best agents.
