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.
