Welcoming ceremonies begin at 2 p.m. near the GM Ren Cen on Friday. There are events happening all week long to celebrate the commissioning on Oct. 22. For more information, visit their website or Facebook page.

There are free tours of the ship on Wednesday, Oct. 19 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The tours are free and are first-come-first-serve.
