Royal Caribbean had its newest cruise ship, Anthem of the Seas, formally christened today at a ceremony in Southmapton, UK.

At the naming ceremony, the ship's godmother, Emma Wilby, performed the honor of naming the ship and then pressed a button that released a bottle of champagne that broke across the ship's hull.

Wilby, a travel agent that was selected to be the ship's godmother as part of a talent search, also sang the hit song "Firework" that was made famous by Katy Perry.

Anthem of the Seas is hosting members of the media and other VIPs for a short 2-night cruise before she embarks upon her first regularly scheduled cruise on April 22nd.
