Actress Cheri Oteri Named Godmother of Avalon Alegria

Avalon Waterways announced that Cheri Oteri, actress and comedienne widely known for her role on Saturday Night Live, will christen the Avalon Alegria as godmother on the Douro River in 2024.

Of her godmother duties, Cheri Oteri said, “I am beyond excited to have the honor of godmother to the beautiful Avalon Alegria.”

Oteri will christen the Avalon Alegria in an international ceremony that will take place on 28MAR 2024 in Pinhão, Portugal.

“In our search for the perfect godmother for the Avalon Alegria – our first ship in Portugal with a name that means “happiness” – we knew Cheri Oteri would be the perfect choice,” said Pam Hoffee, president of Avalon Waterways. “As a difference-making entertainer – and one of the ground-breaking women who inspired modern comedy in America – Ms. Oteri has brought so much inspiration and joy into our lives. We are thrilled she has chosen to honor as us the godmother of our newest, ‘happiest’ ship in Europe, and we very much look forward to celebrating her and her accomplishments in Portugal at our ship christening.”

After the christening ceremony, the 262-foot, 102-passenger Avalon Alegria – with 14 Deluxe Staterooms and 37 Panorama Suites, built exclusively to sail the Douro River – will become the first Suite Ship from Avalon Waterways to set sail in Portugal.

“We’ve waited a long time for the perfect opportunity to add Portugal to our robust vacation portfolio and that day has nearly arrived,” said Hoffee. “Inviting our guests to sail the Douro for the first time, we’re bringing the Suite Ships of Avalon, the grandest views in cruising and whim-powered itineraries to Southwestern Europe. And we couldn’t be more excited.”

In early APR 2024, Avalon Waterways will make its Portugal debut on the Douro River with a new itinerary aboard the Avalon Alegria, as Open Jaw reported.
