CARNIVAL CRUISE LINE TO HONOR MUSIC ICON GWEN STEFANI AS GODMOTHER OF CARNIVAL JUBILEE
Naming Ceremony Set for Port of Galveston on Feb. 24
Carnival Cruise Line honors global music superstar Gwen Stefani as the godmother of Carnival’s new flagship, Carnival Jubilee, at a naming ceremony and celebration in Galveston, Texas on Saturday, Feb. 24.
A three-time GRAMMY® Award winner, Gwen Stefani has achieved global success as a songwriter, performer, charismatic frontwoman of No Doubt and as a multi-platinum solo artist. Throughout it all, Stefani has remained a trend-setting music and fashion icon with an impressive array of honors – four MTV Video Music Awards, two Billboard Awards, an American Music Award and a Brit Award. Stefani also returned for her seventh season as a coach on the Emmy®-winning NBC series The Voice this past fall.
Stefani is also recognized for her philanthropic work, including her support of children’s causes.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be welcoming Gwen Stefani onto Carnival Jubilee so we can honor her as the ship’s godmother,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “She has demonstrated her commitment to our Carnival values, including promoting diversity and inclusion, supporting charitable causes, being a leader in her field, and of course, having fun. We are going to show her an enthusiastic welcome in only the way Carnival can when she joins us on February 24.”
“I am honored to be the godmother of the new Carnival Jubilee,” said Stefani. “Carnival is taking it to the next level of fun while being committed to children’s causes and supporting our military families and veterans.”
