So far 3 songs they sung are known: 'Orinoco Flow', 'Sanctus' and 'What a Wonderful World'.

Of course, the video was taken with a potato, but it is clearly "A Wonderful World." I wonder if this was the only song they sang? (Sorry, it won't embed, even with switching the site from Youtube to FB. )

hahaha, thanks for such undeserved compliments :lol:

Yes, the video quality is quite low, but thankfully it exists :)

Amanda used her photo vertically, which never helps for recording a video, but mostly it's because she was not in the atrium during the songs. She was seated on the pool area (deck 8 ) and what she recorded is the big screen that displayed libera singing 6 decks beneath ;)

Someone posted her video on YouTube also, but it's so poor in quality it's really not worth linking.

Apparently, the Viking Sea has a snow grotto! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/trave ... emony.html
Wow, thanks for posting. Good idea, Facebook Video! I think there is a way to do it so the video is embedded. I shall take a look into this in a couple of weeks.

Yes :shock: :shock: . I too want to learn FDL's ways!
There's no special ways :lol:
Just try by yourself and see what can be found on facebook when searching libera "viking sea" :wink:
:lol: yes, that would be the logical way to do things :D

It's not hard, just select "Facebook" from the pull-down menu for BBvideo, then change the URL to match the example they give you.

The photo I posted yesterday comes from this video publishes by Viking Cruises, about the 'Viking Sea' christening.

There's a (very) short glimpse of Libera for 2 seconds at 0:43" :)

I'm very disappointed that Libera did not get a mention, and only a two second picture in this promotional video. :(

A new photo posted on the Libera facebook page about this event. The caption reads "As half term approaches, some of us sure wish we were on a cruise ship again having a holiday."
