Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger has been named the godmother and entertainment partner of P&O Cruises new ship Arvia.

As well as naming the ship and performing at the launch ceremony in Barbados later this month, Nicole will also take part in a series of other performances that are planned to take place on forthcoming sailings on Arvia and sister ship Iona.

P&O Cruises President Paul Ludlow said: “As a global superstar Nicole is well placed to create contemporary and breath-taking late night shows which will be performed in SkyDome on our two newest ships Iona and Arvia.

“We could not be more thrilled that she has agreed to be Arvia’s godmother and will be with us on 16 March when Arvia is officially named in the Caribbean.

“Through her many appearances on some of the UK’s best loved shows Nicole has won the hearts of the British public.

“She really is the epitome of zest for life and as a critically-acclaimed talent she joins a line-up of world-famous godmothers and partners for P&O Cruises.

“Her involvement reflects everything which P&O Cruises stands for – a modern, forward-thinking holiday company which has always excelled in the levels of cutting-edge entertainment we provide.”

Nicole added: “This is an extraordinary and special opportunity for me to create a visual and musical feast for people to immerse themselves in, with the sea as their backdrop, giving them something to truly remember.

“I want to create an experience to remember for the audiences of Iona and Arvia and I am delighted to become part of the P&O Cruises family.

“I have always felt as though I am honorary Brit and to be asked to name Arvia in Barbados really is the icing on the cake and I cannot wait to perform my godmother duties in the most beautiful of Caribbean locations.”

Arvia’s naming ceremony will be broadcast live on YouTube on Thursday 16 March at 7pm. It will include a performance by Olly Murs as well as Nicole’s striking show finale.

More details of the shows to be created by Nicole on Arvia and Iona will be revealed later this year.
