Video of the most interesting ship launches.
I found this interesting YouTube Video on Fascinating ship launches. For those who may not be familiar, this is when a newly constructed ship, is first introduced into the water. Traditionally most large ships are built in a dry-dock and then the dock is flooded with water and the ship slowly rises from the dry-dock bottom. The last cruise ship to have a side wards launch was Home Lines' Homeric of 1984, which was sideways launched in Papenburg, Germany at Meyer Werft Shipyard.

I hope you enjoy the video.
