Royal Caribbean will hold a competition to find Harmony of the Seas' godmother

One of the last questions about Royal Caribbean's Harmony of the Seas is who will be its godmother.  Turns out, Royal Caribbean is not certain either.

Speaking onboard Harmony of the Seas, Royal Caribbean CEO Michael Bayley told TTG the company is looking to find a godmother for the ship who has commited their life to the education of children in someway.

Bayley said the competition to find a godmother will be held throughout schools in the United States, and possibly extended to include UK schools as well.


Royal Caribbean's history of choosing the ceremonial role of a ship's godmother is quite varied.  

In some intances, Royal Caribbean has chosen celebrities to help bring additional media attention to a new ship, such as performer Gloria Estefan, actress Jane Seymour, comedian/actress Whoopi Goldberg and tennis champion Steffi Graf, to name a few.

Other times, Royal Caribbean has opted to pick a godmother that honors the industries and causes the company champions, such as picking a travel agent for Anthem of the Seas or an "extraordinary" person on Freedom of the Seas.
