Wonder of the Seas godmother chosen on TikTok

Cancer survivor Marie McCrea was nominated by her daughter and selected from 16,000 entrants in the #SearchforWonderMom contest

The godmother of Royal Caribbean International’s new ship Wonder of the Seas is an American cancer survivor who was selected after a contest on TikTok.

The line’s search for “the ultimate wonder mom” attracted more than 16,000 videos and 10.6 billion #SeachforWonderMom hashtag views.

The winner – Marie McCrea, from Pennsylvania – was nominated by her daughter and will name the ship in a ceremony at Port Canaveral on December 9.

“The search for such an inspiring mom who embodies the spirit of Wonder of the Seas was anything but easy,” said Royal Caribbean International chief executive Michael Bayley.

“Marie and her family have a heartening and encouraging story that made us cry and rejoice and hopeful, and throughout it all, she inspired wonder and adventure in those around her.

“I want to thank everyone who nominated the wonder moms in their own lives. More than 16,000 videos were created, and I was in awe of all the incredible stories of the everyday heroes who are motivating those around them to discover, wonder and make memories.”

Wonder of the Seas is the fifth of the line’s giant Oasis-class vessels and the largest, with a capacity of 6,998.
