Norwegian Cruise Line announced this week the appointment of the world famous pop icon and “American Idol” judge Katy Perry as the godmother for its record-breaking and innovative newest ship, Norwegian Prima, debuting August 2022. Norwegian Prima readies for the fanatically anticipated August 22 sailing debut with ‘I Kiss a Girl‘ hitmaker as its officiating Godmother. Plus a Spotify playlist is launched to celebrate the partnership.

As the godmother, Perry will not only fulfil the longstanding traditional maritime role of blessing the ship as she leads the ceremonial breaking of the champagne to bid both the eagerly-awaited vessel and its travellers good fortune. She will also perform during the christening ceremony before Norwegian Prima (the first of six Project Leonardo class ships in the Prima Class) sets sail on its inaugural voyages from Reykjavík, Iceland, where the vessel will be the first major cruise ship christened in the Icelandic capital.

Perry is equally excited, and promises to bring onboard her well-documented eccentric, vibrant personality. “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,” she says.
