Fincantieri Floats Britannia

Fincantieri floated P&O Cruises' 141,000-ton Britannia today at their Monfalcone yard.

Before opening the valves to float the ship, it was christened with a bottle of Italian prosecco.

Once the valves are opened, it takes approximately 24 hours to fill the dry dock.
Once floating on Saturday, Britannia will be towed to a finishing dock for completion.

P&O had an event in London Wednesday evening to give the trade a taste of the Britannia Experience. This video should do the same for you.
