Celebrity Edge “Godmother”

Celebrity Edge “Godmother”

  “Celebrity Edge Godmother, the news is out”

The news is out about who is going to be the new Celebrity Edges Godmother.

Malala Yousafzai will be the godmother of the Celebrity Edge, a ship due in late 2018.


Yousafzai is a 19-year-old Pakistani woman who received the Nobel Peace Prize for her advocacy of girls’ education. She came to prominence for writing a blog about the subject as an 11-year-old living in a Taliban-occupied area of her country.

In 2012, she was severely injured and nearly died when a Taliban gunman shot her on a bus. Since then, she has become a prominent education activist. She founded the nonprofit Malala Fund and in 2013 co-authored “I am Malala,” an international bestseller.

In 2014, she was announced as the co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize and was the youngest recipient ever at 17 years old.

As well as naming Yousafzai godmother, Celebrity announced a two-year partnership to support and promote the Malala Fund.

“Partnering with Malala Fund was a natural fit as we share the same passion and commitment to an incredible cause,” Celebrity CEO and president Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said.

“Malala is an inspiration and a voice of hope,” said Richard Fain, chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd, Celebrity’s parent company. “This young woman is on a powerful mission, and we support it 100 percent.”


The Celebrity Edge is now available to book for forthcoming voyages, being a Celebrity fan myself I am looking forward to helping my customers book their dream cruise.

Hi, I’m Wendy and I’m thrilled to have recently joined the Cruise Club UK team. After spending 15 years in the travel industry I ventured out into the world of training and development where I spent a number of years training and supporting staff in the travel industry to achieve their goals. Booking dream holidays is something I’ve always missed and I’ve wanted to return to what I do best, arranging and booking holidays for customers. Well here I am and I’m loving every single second of it, the team at Cruise Club UK have such passion about cruising and customer service is our priority. I love cruising and I’ve been very fortunate to cruise with a variety of different cruise lines to destinations such as Far East, Middle East, Alaska, Europe and Caribbean. I love the fact that you can see some many different destinations in one holiday and when you look at the cost and what’s included its usually better value than a hotel based holiday, what’s not to like? Fantastic service, food and entertainment all in one place and I’m amazed at some of the fantastic offers that are available with some of the cruise lines such as free drinks, on board credit, speciality dining and internet and they are amazing for families who have children and quite often work out better value than a family package holiday. Give me a call today on 0161 798 2570, I look forward to helping you in arranging your dream cruise. Thank you for taking the time to read all about me and I look forward to helping you soon and sharing some of my own lovely cruising experiences with you.
