Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has announced that Luis Fonsi will serve as the godfather of its newest ship, Norwegian Viva, the second ship of the Brand’s groundbreaking Prima Class.
Luis Fonsi is a GRAMMY® nominated, five-time Latin GRAMMY® winning singer, songwriter, musician and producer best known for the award-winning, global chart-topping hit Despacito.
The ship will be christened in Miami on 28 November 2023 before homeporting in San Juan, Puerto Rico with the theme “Live it Up!”
A lineup of leading Latin entertainers joining Fonsi, including The Queen of Latin Pop, Paulina Rubio; “Saturday Night Live” cast member and Miami-native, Marcello Hernandez; and singer, Pedro Capó.
David J. Herrera, President of Norwegian Cruise Line said: “We are thrilled to welcome Latin music icon Luis Fonsi to the NCL family as Godfather of Norwegian Viva and to join us as we christen our newest ship.
“Miami, our hometown, is immersed in Latin culture, and we want to celebrate Norwegian Viva’s debut with an infusion of Latin talent headlined by Luis.
“As a native Puerto Rican, who is also based in Miami, he brings people together from around the world with his energy, positivity and music, making him the perfect complement to the vibrant energy of Norwegian Viva.
“We cannot wait for him to join us as we celebrate this milestone moment later this year.”
After completing its christening voyage, Norwegian Viva will be the newest ship to homeport in San Juan, Puerto Rico upon arrival on Dec. 15, 2023.
