Music Sensation Named Godfather Of New Norwegian Viva!

Music Sensation Named Godfather Of New Norwegian Viva!

Grammy-nominated songwriter, musician, and producer Luis Fonsi, the singer behind the smash music hit “Despacito”, has been named by Norwegian Cruise Line as the Godfather of its latest ship, Norwegian Viva. 

Luis will perform at the ship’s official naming ceremony in a star-studded event in sunny Miami on 28th November this year, alongside Latin celebrity stars Paulina Rubio, Marcello Hernandez and Pedro Capó.

During the event, Luis will officiate the ceremonial breaking of a champagne bottle on the ship’s bow. The maritime tradition is completed to bid the vessel and its travellers good fortune on their voyages. 

Following the spectacular ceremony, Norwegian Viva will set sail on its christening voyage and arrive at its homeport in San Juan, Puerto Rico just before Christmas. 

From April 2024, Norwegian Viva will set sail on a variety of seven-day Caribbean voyages calling at Tortola, British Virgin Islands; St John’s, Antigua; Bridgetown, Barbados; Castries, St. Lucia; Philipsburg, St. Maarten and St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. 

Norwegian Viva’s summer 2024 season will be spent in Europe, visiting popular ports such as Athens, Lisbon, Rome (Civitavecchia), Venice and more. 

“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.”

David J. Herrera, President of Norwegian Cruise Line

The second ship in Norwegian Cruise Line’s modern and innovative Prima Class, Norwegian Viva will feature some of the fastest slides at sea, The Drop and Rush, an upscale Indulge Food Hall featuring 11 eateries, plus a new sustainable cocktail bar named the Metropolitan Bar.
