US rapper Pitbull, real name Armando Christian Perez, has been announced as the godfather of Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest ship, Norwegian Escape, due to launch next month.
Norwegian Cruise Line’s President, Andy Stuart, said: “Pitbull epitomises and contributes to the energy, excitement and local flavour that our ships so proudly embody and we’re excited and have him serve in this special role as godfather to Norwegian Escape.”
The musician will officially christen the new vessel – a role usually fulfilled by a woman – and perform at the ceremony in Norwegian Escape‘s homeport of Miami on 9 November 2015.
The 4,200 guest ship will be Norwegian Cruise Line’s largest vessel ever and will sail seven-night Eastern Caribbean cruises departing every Saturday from Miami beginning on 14 November 2015.
