"In keeping with the ship's family appeal, it felt only fitting to invite a much loved household name like Nickelodeon's Dora the Explorer to be Godmother. She's a family favourite, enjoys adventure and trying new activities, and is a perfect fit to help showcase all that our ship has to offer", said P&O Cruises President Sture Myrmell.
