Star power kisses new cruise ship with good vibrations

We had Lady Gaga linking with Dom Perignon Champagne in a most unlikely collaboration. Now we have pop star Katy Perry as "godmother" for a new cruise ship. 

Norwegian Cruise Line says that "world famous pop icon" Perry will serve as the godmother for its newest ship, Norwegian Prima, to debut in August 2022.


Perry will perform during the christening ceremony before Norwegian Prima sets sail on its inaugural voyages from Reykjavík, Iceland, where the vessel will be the first major cruise ship christened in the Icelandic capital.


A vital element of any ship launch and dating back centuries, the tradition of appointing a ship’s godmother is a nautical custom during which the selected godmother officiates a ceremonial breaking of a Champagne bottle on the ship’s bow to bid the vessel and its travellers good fortune.

Sophia Loren is a godmother for MSC Cruises. 


“We are so excited to welcome Katy Perry, a one-of-a-kind artist and worldwide sensation, as godmother of Norwegian Prima,” said Harry Sommer, president and CEO of NCL. Harry is clearly a big fans and a very excitable fellow. 

"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.”

Perry, playing her part to perfection, said: “My most favourite way to vacation 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 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 vacations for so many families.”

Norwegian Prima will offer inaugural voyages from Southampton, England; Amsterdam; and Reykjavík. See
