The newest ship of Norwegian Cruise Line’s (NCL) was named “Prima” by its godmother and and global superstar Katy Perry, during a glamorous naming ceremony held recently in Reykjavík, Iceland.

The first of six ships in the groundbreaking Prima Class, Norwegian Prima, debuted to more than 2,500 guests who enjoyed an immersive experience in the beautiful Icelandic capital and a christening celebration like no other.

The three-level Prima Theater & Club stage was then transformed into a whimsical backdrop where guests enjoyed a powerhouse performance of some of Perry’s chart-topping hits including “California Gurls”, “Teenage Dream”, “Roar” and “Firework”.

“It was so much fun to sprinkle some fairy godmother dust on Norwegian Prima and send her on her way to sail the high seas,” said Perry.
