Norwegian Escape has been officially named at PortMiami, Florida. The new cruise ship shined in all its glory under the vivid blue Miami sky.
It was a Christening ceremony to remember where international superstar, musician and now Godfather Pitbull named the 164,600 gross ton ship on a typical sunny afternoon in Miami, Florida. There was an important but also grand speech from Norwegian’s CEO Frank Del Rio along with plenty of performances and shows to keep the attendees entertained. We especially liked the large “Escape” letters at the back of the stage.
Andy Stuart, Norwegian Cruise Line’s president and chief operating officer said:
“Norwegian Escape represents a major moment for us – this is a true evolution of our brand. Not only does she offer high caliber entertainment, quality dining and luxurious accommodations that significantly raise the bar for our fleet and puts her in a class of her own, but she exemplifies our renewed commitment to offering unparalleled freedom and flexibility to our guests.”
Attendees were treated to a special sneak peek at the stellar entertainment Norwegian Escape has to offer as the casts of Tony Award-winning Broadway shows “After Midnight” and “Million Dollar Quartet” performed a selection of songs from each respective show, before Pitbull brought down the house with his hottest hits, including “Don’t Stop the Party”, “Fireball” and “Give Me Everything”.
