350 VIP guests in expedition boats experienced a multimedia christening show on Hamburg’s Elbe river, with 3D architecture mapping and live acts on and in front of the 3,000sqm hull of the vessel.
A ship launch staged as an expedition: in line with the claim “THE WORLD AHEAD OF US”, the ship was turned into a floating stage for a virtual journey around the Earth, and guests turned into explorers: seated in zodiacs and barges on the Elbe river, which was temporarily closed for other traffic, they followed a multimedia show with 3D architecture mapping and live acts on and in front of the 3,000sqm hull of the ship.
