Christening of CMA CGM Georg Forster

In July 2015 I had the opportunity to attend the Christening ceremony of the CMA CGM Georg Forster at the harbour of Hamburg. It is one of the largest container vessels of the world carrying more than 18.000 TEU. One had a chance to visit the ship and Even visit the bridge. You will find some of the pics below. It took us quite a while walking up the staircase to the very top where the bridge is. Afterwards the Christening ceremony itself took place with roughly 500 guests. The weather was typical for Hamburg in July: cloudy, stormy, a bit of rain and quite cold. Nevertheless, it was a remarkable event at Burchardkai terminal.
