Norwegian Cruise Line has launched a search for the ideal godmother of its new ship, Norwegian Gem. If you're a Latitudes member (the club for NCL past passengers), you're invited to reveal your “It” Girl attributes and submit a video at gemitgirl.com explaining why you should receive the honor of christening Norwegian Gem.
NCL suggests the Latitudes “It” Girl should embody the spirit of their hot, hip new ship, Norwegian Gem, as well as the free spirit of NCL’s Freestyle Cruising. The "It" Girl should be sophisticated, independent and confident, with an eagerness to explore new destinations and learn new things. She should be glamorous, stylish and cultured, and possess a youthful and adventurous spirit regardless of age. Entrants are invited to include their own unique talent (if they have one) that exemplifies the freestyle spirit of NCL cruising. Entries will be judged on creativity and originality. Cruise Diva has previewed the submissions to date and hasn't seen any unique talent on display, but at least no one has tried to do a Rosie O'Donnell impersonation.
In case you need a little help in bringing out your inner actress, NCL has enlisted the help of Second City, the famed improv group featured on NCL ships, to provide some tips. Several Second City cast members have created videos that are posted on gemitgirl.com showing what’s “it” and what isn’t “it.”
Video entries should be submitted by Nov 12, 2007. Five finalists will be revealed on Nov 15the and the Norwegian Gem's godmother will be introduced during ship's christening ceremony on Dec 18th in New York City. You've never sailed on NCL and aren't a Latitudes Member? Don't worry, you can still enter your video for a chance to become the Latitudes "It" Girl's BFF and win a 7-day cruise for two.
I'm already one of Norwegian Gem's BFFs. So, you go for it, girl!
