It pays to be a global superstar! And proving so is Katy Perry, who recently got named as godmother for Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest ship – Norwegian Prima. The cruise travel company announced the news on March 18 while making Perry fans hoot in praise!
As the designated godmother, the ‘American Idol’ judge will fulfil the tradition of blessing and naming Norwegian Prima. She will additionally perform at the christening ceremony and break a champagne bottle on Norwegian Prima’s bow for the good fortune of both the vessel and its guests.
The event is scheduled to take place on August 27, in Reykjavik, with the Norwegian Prima being the first ship to be christened in the Icelandic capital. The cruise ship – a 142,500 GT vessel further packs in the best of amenities and can accommodate 3,215 guests at double occupancy.
Per autoevolution.com, guests onboard will be able to enjoy multiple infinity pools on the 44,000 sq ft (4,087 sq m) Ocean Boulevard, visit Indulge, which is the brand’s first upscale international dining open-air marketplace, delight their palates with the most exquisite culinary specialties, and much more!
Commenting on Perry’s godmother status, Harry Sommer, President and CEO of NCL, said, “We are so excited to welcome Katy Perry, a one-of-a-kind artist, and worldwide sensation, as godmother of Norwegian Prima.” “We are so incredibly proud that she will be part of the Norwegian Cruise Line family and look forward to launching our beautiful, innovative ship with her in August.”
Remarking similarly, the superstar added, “My most favorite way to holiday with my family is on the water. Every morning that you wake up, you get to experience an incredible new view. I love that I get to christen her (Norwegian Prima) with my good vibrations, and I’m so excited for this new, beautiful, high-end, high-tech ship to take the seas and provide once-in-a-lifetime holidays; for so many families.”
The cruise ship will set sail in August, beginning from UK and Iceland to northern Europe, before turning to Bermuda from New York in October and further around the Caribbean from ports in the US this winter. More information on bookings is available on NCL’s official website.
