Iona has arrived!
Iona’s naming ceremony: watch the show now
Here it is! We’re so proud and excited to share this film of Iona’s naming ceremony with you. It’s got a bit of everything: stars, music, celebrations and – of course – some spectacular footage of our newest ship as she sailed into her home port of Southampton for the very first time. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Here’s a sneak peek at what’s in store…
