Oasis of the Seas announces seven godmothers

Date Posted: 24 Nov 2009
The world's largest cruise liner has provided its own twist to one of the maritime world's oldest traditions.

Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas will have seven godmothers instead of the usual one, representing the seven unique neighbourhoods onboard the vessel.

Internationally-known singer Gloria Estefan was chosen after she was named godmother to Royal Caribbean sister ship Empress of the Seas, while Olympic medallist Michelle Kwan was selected thanks to her status as the most celebrated skater in the US.

Golden Globe winner Jane Seymour, swimmer and Olympian Dara Torres, actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, gymnast Shawn Johnson and TV personality Daisy Fuentes will also become Oasis of the Seas' godmothers.

A Royal Caribbean statement said: "Each of the seven godmothers was chosen because they personify strength of character, exemplify the spirit of giving, and are role models for men, women and children alike."

On November 13th, Oasis of the Seas arrived in Fort Lauderdale in Florida following a two-week transatlantic crossing from Turku in Finland.
