Norwegian Encore Godmother is Kelly Clarkson!

Announced today on the Kelly Clarkson Show that GRAMMY Award-winning artist and superstar Kelly Clarkson herself will serve as the godmother to Norwegian Encore, NCL’s brand new cruise ship. The announcement was made by the cruise line’s President and Chief Executive Officer Andy Stuart during the new daytime show.

Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer, said: 

“We knew we wanted someone who represents our core values.”

“Kelly is a role model who is passionate about family and community, as well as music and entertainment.  These are our passions too! We are honored to have her join our family of godparents and look forward to celebrating Norwegian Encore’s debut in Miami with her, this November.”
