Katy Perry named godmother of Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest ship

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) announced that pop icon and American Idol judge Katy Perry will serve as the godmother to its newest ship, Norwegian Prima, debuting in August 2022.

As godmother, Perry will bless and officially name Norwegian Prima, the first of six vessels in the Prima Class, and 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.

“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.

“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 said she’s excited about christening the ship and loves cruising.

“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,” Perry said.

“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.”

While onboard, guests can visit Ocean Boulevard, featuring multiple infinity pools and oceanwalk glass bridges with ocean and destination views.

Visit ‘Indulge,’ the brand’s first-ever upscale international dining open-air marketplace or relax on The Concourse, featuring an outdoor sculpture garden boasting “Instagrammable” installations by artists David Harber and Alexander Krivosheiw.

Designed by the master architects at Piero Lissoni, the ship’s revamped luxurious centralized suite complex, The Haven By Norwegian will feature 107 staterooms spanning eight decks with a stunning new infinity pool overlooking the ship’s wake and a new outdoor spa with a glass-walled sauna and cold room.

Most recently, NCL unveiled its remaining culinary and beverage offerings available on Norwegian Prima and Viva, including the brand’s first sustainably-focused lounge, The Metropolitan and its ultra upscale Mediterranean seafood specialty restaurant Palomar.

Launching August 2022, Norwegian Prima will offer inaugural voyages to Northern Europe from Southampton, England; Amsterdam; and Reykjavík, Iceland beginning 12 August; Bermuda sailings from New York City beginning 6 October; and Caribbean itineraries from Galveston, Texas and Miami beginning 27 October.
