Designed to accommodate a maximum of 1.200 guests, the new boutique ship was blessed by the shipyard's chaplain, Father Stefano, in a silent ceremony to commemorate the recently deceased General Claudio Graziano, Chairman of Fincantieri. Caterina Romeo, designer in Fincantieri's technical department, traditionally christened the ship Allura and blessed the ship and all who will travel on her.
