According to Colin Veitch, NCL's president and chief executive officer, "Kim embodies the spirit of New York and the distinctive style of Freestyle Cruising. Kim's allure is quite tantalizing, she is the new symbol of New York City and the perfect Godmother for our newest, most innovative vessel, Norwegian Dawn."
