Carnival Cruise Line has chosen three-time Grammy-award-winning musician Gwen Stefani as godmother for its new flagship, Carnival Jubilee. The US singer will christen the ship at a naming ceremony at the Port of Galveston in Texas, USA, on 24 February 2024.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be welcoming Gwen Stefani onto Carnival Jubilee so we can honour her as the ship’s godmother,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “She has demonstrated her commitment to our Carnival values, including promoting diversity and inclusion, supporting charitable causes, being a leader in her field, and of course, having fun.”
Carnival Jubilee made its debut in December 2023 and is homeported year-round at the Texan port.
Carnival Jubilee arrived at its homeport of Galveston, Texas, at 8:00 CST on 19 December 2023
“I am honoured to be the godmother of the new Carnival Jubilee,” said Stefani. “Carnival is taking it to the next level of fun while being committed to children’s causes and supporting our military families and veterans.”
A portion of the naming ceremony will be broadcast live on Carnival’s Facebook page starting at 15:30 CST.
