Kim Cattrall of HBO’s Sex and the City was named Godmother of Norwegian Cruise Line’s (NCL) newest ship. The Norwegian Dawn, set to call New York home, will be christened in a ceremony aboard the ship in New York on December 16. The 92,250-ton Norwegian Dawn is NCL's third ship purpose-built for the groundbreaking Freestyle Cruising concept. 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." Cattrall is a Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated actress who has received worldwide critical acclaim for her portrayal of femme fatale Samantha Jones on Sex and the City.
