Royal Caribbean wants an ‘ordinary’ UK Godmother

Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On March - 25 - 2008

Freedom of the Seas (Photo courtesy of Royal Caribbean Cruises International) Royal Caribbean International has launched a nationwide search for a British Godmother to reign over the cruise line’s newest and largest ship, Independence of the Seas, when she launches in Southampton, next month (April 2008).

Sir Steve Redgrave, five-time Olympic gold medallist and figurehead of the Steve Redgrave Fund, will front the cruise line’s search, working with ITV, the UK’s biggest commercial television station.

The company said it is seeking an ‘ordinary’ woman who can demonstrate how she has worked to improve the well-being and future of young people in her community.

All potential Godmothers must be nominated via a dedicated website http://www.searchforagodmother.co.uk. To enter, applicants must explain in 250 words or less why they, or someone they know, would be the ideal Godmother for Independence of the Seas. A special panel of judges including Royal Caribbean International executives, guest judges and Sir Steve Redgrave, will select the ships’ Godmother.

    This is very random to me. I don’t know much about this. Maybe I’ll get my gramma to submit something ;P

    I should go write something about my grandmother too, then make sure to pass along my kind words to her, it will make her feel great, like an extra christmas present 🙂 She rocks!

    I would sign my grandmother in for this but she hates ships, she went on the qe2 once and it flooded – that actually happened.

    Glad steve is still keeping his hand in.

  6. Wish I would have known about this sooner! I would have submitted my mother!
