Entertainer Armando Christian Perez — aka Pitbull — will christen Norwegian Cruise Line's newest cruise ship.
The Norwegian Escape will debut at PortMiami on Nov. 9, with Perez as "godfather."
Perez, also known as Mr. 305 and Mr. Worldwide, will be the headline performer at the ship's naming ceremony, the Miami-based cruise operator announced Wednesday.
The Miami native also performed at the christening ceremony for Norwegian Getaway when it debuted in Miami in February 2014. He also introduced his Voli vodka brand to cruisers at that time. Voli is now available across Norwegian's fleet and featured in several signature cocktails.
The 4,200-passenger, 164,600 gross ton cruise ship will be the largest to be based year-round in Miami and will sail seven-day cruises to the Eastern Caribbean starting Nov. 14, stopping at St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; Tortola, British Virgin Islands; and Nassau, Bahamas.
From Mariah Carey to Sally Ride to Tinker Bell to Queen Elizabeth, there have been many famous cruise ship godmothers over the years.
Norwegian Escape's signature hull artwork is designed by marine wildlife artist and ocean conservationist Guy Harvey.
