Myleene Klass has been picked to name a giant cruise liner at its British ‘coming-out party’.
The classical musician, singer and presenter will be ‘ship’s godmother’ and smash a bottle against the hull of the superliner Carnival Splendor in Dover next month.
Myleene Klass says she is 'excited' and 'a little nervous' at becoming the ship's godmother of the superliner Carnival Splendor
At 113,000 tons and carrying up to 3,710 passengers, Carnival Splendor will be the largest passenger ship ever to sail from the port.
It boasts four swimming pools, a 5,500sq ft children’s play area and 22 lounges and bars.
Myleene, 30, said: ‘I am very excited and a little nervous at becoming a “ship’s godmother” for the first time. But my family is very connected with ships as my father served in the Merchant Navy.’
Carnival president Gerry Cahill said: ‘Myleene is the perfect godmother to name Carnival Splendor.’
She will dispense with traditional Champagne and instead use English sparkling wine. The ship will immediately set sail for a three-day mini preview cruise to Amsterdam.
