Norwegian Cruise Line CEO Andy Stuart presented Duran to a group of trade partners and media at an event here.
Duran said it was an honour to be named the ship’s godfather. “We are so excited to partner with Norwegian Cruise Line,” he said.
Duran’s syndicated show is broadcast on nearly 80 stations, including top 40 station Z100 in New York, where the Elvis Duran team is based. The show also is available digitally on IHeartRadio, and it reaches more than 10 million listeners a month, Norwegian said.
“Over the next year-and-a-half at least, we’ve made a pledge to our listeners to include them in every aspect of our exploration of the Norwegian Bliss, inviting them to be a part of it,” Duran said.
The Norwegian Bliss, which will spend its summers sailing Alaska cruises from Seattle, enters service in April.
