Royal Caribbean is looking for the Godmother for its newest ship, Wonder of the Seas, and the search begins on social media. U.S. users of video-sharing platform TikTok can now take part in Royal Caribbean's #SearchForWonderMom contest by nominating a mom who "inspires those around them to discover, wonder and make memories."
The call for submissions is open through 16MAY at 11:59 p.m. ET, and the winner will be announced on Royal Caribbean’s own TikTok account this summer.
“The role of a Godmother is an important and longstanding maritime tradition, and it began with naming prominent public figures to now recognizing everyday heroes like moms,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “With a combination of brand-new adventures and signature favorites across entertainment, thrills, dining and nightlife, Wonder of the Seas is designed to inspire wonder and awe in children and travelers of all ages. Moms do just that and more day in and day out.”
Wonder’s Godmother will have the honor of bestowing a blessing of safekeeping on the ship, its crew and guests who will sail in the years to come during the new ship’s naming ceremony in Port Canaveral, Florida, in DEC. Plus, the honoree and their family will set sail on an exclusive cruise to the cruise line’s private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay in The Bahamas.
Also in store for the chosen "Wonder Mom" and guests is a 7-night Caribbean sailing on board Wonder of the Seas in the Ultimate Family Suite, first-class flights, three nights in a five-star hotel before the cruise and up to USD $1,000 in spending money. In addition, four finalists can enjoy the new ship on a 7-night cruise in a balcony stateroom for up to four guests.
