New ships were arriving in the UK with alarming regularity during 2008.
P&O’s Ventura (below) was launched by Dame Helen Mirren in mid-April.

Just two weeks later Sir Steve Redgrave was among the stars at the launch of Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas (below).

In June, Holland America Lines’ latest ship, Eurodam, paid a brief visit ahead of her naming in Rotterdam by Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands. I’m looking forward to returning to the Tamarind restaurant (seen here) when I sail on Eurodam in the Caribbean at the end of February.
