Just before midday on December 4, 2012, VOYAGER, Voyages of Discovery’s newest ship, was named by her godmother, Miranda Krestovnikoff, the British television presenter who specialises in natural history, marine conservation, archaeology and wildlife.  The naming ceremony took place at VOYAGER’s homeport of Portsmouth on a chilly but sunny day and was attended by a select group of invited guests and staff, travel agents and the media.
