Kelly Clarkson to be godmother of Norwegian Encore

Norwegian Cruise Line has revealed that Kelly Clarkson, the pop star, will serve as the godmother to Norwegian Encore when the ship is christened in November.

The announcement was made on The Kelly Clarkson Show, with the line’s boss, Andy Stuart, appearing on TV to make the announcement.

“We knew we wanted someone who represents our core values,” said Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer.  “Kelly is a role model who is passionate about family and community, as well as music and entertainment.  These are our passions too! We are honoured to have her join our family of godparents and look forward to celebrating Norwegian Encore’s debut in Miami with her, this November.”

“I am so honoured to be named the godmother to Norwegian Encore, and to get to be a part of such a special ceremony to christen the new ship in Miami,” said Kelly Clarkson.  “I believe that surrounding yourself with the ones you love and taking time for them is important while having the most amazing and unforgettable vacation, which is what Norwegian Cruise Line stands for and provides for its guests.” 

Norwegian Encore will include the longest race track at sea and the largest outdoor laser tag arena, covering almost 10,000 square feet.
