Havila Voyages’ Havila Castor has been christened in a ceremony in Ålesund, Norway, six months after starting operations along the Norwegian Coast.

Aurora Sævik, granddaughter of Havila Voyages’ chairman of the board and main shareholder Per Sævik, served as godmother for the ceremony. Havila Castor is named after a star in the Gemini constellation, which has historically been used for navigation at sea.

“I was incredibly proud and happy when grandfather asked if I wanted to be godmother to Havila Castor,” said Aurora Sævik. “We, the grandchildren, were allowed to help choose the names of the coastal cruise ships, but I had never imagined standing here today.”

The christening was attended by Havila Voyages executives and a crowd of residents from Ålesund.

“Ålesund is an important port along the coastal route,” said Bent Martini, CEO of Havila Voyages. “That's why we felt it made sense to arrange the naming ceremony here today, and we are delighted that so many people wanted to share the day with us. The last few weeks have been hectic for the entire organisation as we prepared to carry out these ceremonies, and I am impressed by the effort our employees have put in both at sea and on land.”
