Double Christening for Costa Luminosa 
& Costa Pacifica

Early this morning Costa Luminosa (left) and Costa Pacifica (right) are positioned at the port of Genoa for their duel christening Friday evening. 
The two ships were docked with their bows together to form an amphitheater with a stage in between for the evening's extravaganza which would culminate in the simultaneous naming. The theme for Costa Luminosa is "the ship of light," and the theme for Costa Pacifica is "the ship of music," both elements were blended for a spectacular show preceding the actual naming. 
There were two godmothers, but they weren't twins. Costa Pacifica's godmother is international pop star Noa (left). She is shown here with Costa Luminosa's godmother, Olympic champion fencer Valentina Vezzali.
