AIDAprima Cruise Ship Construction & Christening in 4K by MK timelapse

By | March 27, 2017

Witness the construction process of AIDA Cruises’ new flagship in Nagasaki: AIDAprima, which was recently christened on the Elbe on Saturday the 7th of May 2016, during the Hamburg Hafengeburtstag (harbour birthday) festival.

Four MKtimelapse camera systems were recording non-stop at the Koyagi Plant of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries to deliver the world’s first cinematic quality time lapse film of a full cruise ship build.

    The Lazar light show and fireworks? Thousands of useless dollars spent for corporate gratification. Better to spend the same money on bonuses for the shipyard workers that built her.

    I have to admit I prefer the more elegant older cruise ships…..
    BUT…..that is a very impressive vessel, and the illuminations are nothing short of stunning.
    This video is absolutely amazing throughout, thank you.

    As it grew up with everything fitting in its place, a structural engineer can appreciate where the resistance to hogging and sagging and twisting of such a large ship is coming from. I often appreciate the education of a nation and its long culture in people working together to produce such a magnificent complex craft. The developed mind takes hundred of years to consolidate the efforts of many people working on different items all for one aim. Most industrialised countries can do this team work ,but it seems that the main oil producing countries cannot. They seem, to be rich and like to won bought items and proud to be owners of bought items, but somehow they cannot achieve such teamwork to produce such magnificent grandeur in products. Most oil producing countries produce individuals and not a team that works together. Even the punishments in religions and laws seem to cater for nations who work as individuals and not teams work. To put it more simple, there are people in some nations who can sing together even in a football match but there are many others where their people do not work together as they just cannot get themselves to sing together, they seem to like being apart as individuals proud of what they bought and now own! That is not nation!
