Seabourn Quest's Inauguration in Barcelona, Spain

Yesterday the Seabourn Quest was christened in Barcelona, Spain just at the foot of La Rambla.

As the sun set Blythe Danner, the award-winning actress, served as godmother to the Seabourn Quest.  Maiden Voyage guests had the unique opportunity to participate in the festivities.

As full orchestra was arrayed on either side of the swimming pool, a projection screen set above the deck allowed guests to view the climactic moment when a bottle of champagne smashed against the bow of the ship.

Right next to the screen, a contingent of crew members who had served in the start-up teams of all three new ship launches instantaneously broke confetti-filled champagne bottles in a synchronized wave pattern and as the bottle crashed.

The evening was capped off by a dazzling fireworks display sparkling against the city's skyline.
