Pitbull to christen Norwegian Escape

In a break with tradition, Norwegian Cruise Line has picked a godfather rather than a godmother to christen its newest ship, Norwegian Escape.

The choice is Miami-based musician Pitbull, who will also perform at the ceremony scheduled for Nov. 9.

Pitbull also performed at the inaugural ceremonies for Norwegian Getaway when it was introduced in Miami in February 2014.

In an announcement, Norwegian said the selection of Pitbull as the ship’s godfather “reinforces Norwegian’s nontraditional cruising that focuses on freedom and flexibility for guests.”

Norwegian Getaway’s godmothers were the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders.

Pitbull is a stage name for Armando Christian Perez. The rapper and record producer has sold 6 million albums and 70 million singles, Norwegian said.
