Reba McEntire will preside over a ceremony that will christen Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest ship. Reba is apparently a big fan of the cruise line, having sailed with them a number of times including a recent Norwegian Gem sailing in the Mediterranean.
“I discovered that they are frequent customers on our ships, which is why I believe that Reba is the perfect choice to christen our largest and most innovative ship, Norwegian Epic,” Norwegian CEO Kevin Sheehan says in a statement. “We are more than thrilled that such a celebrated performer as Reba, who also has experienced our product firsthand, will serve as Norwegian Epic’s Godmother.”
The ceremony for the ship will take place on July 2 in New York City.
