Royal Caribbean has announced that the godmother of its newest Oasis-class ship, Utopia of the Seas, is singer and songwriter Meghan Trainor.

The cruise line is also hosting an exclusive three-night celebration starting July 15th — and 52 fans have the chance to join the festivities. Starting today through Sunday July 7th at 11:59 pm eastern time, fans can enter for the chance to join the celebration. Official rules for the giveaway can be found on Royal Caribbean’s instagram.

The three-night christening cruise will include a live performance by Trainor while the ship is at Royal Caribbean’s private destination Perfect Day at CocoCay, as well as the naming ceremony. The events take place days prior to the ship’s official July 19th debut in Port Canaveral.

“It’s an incredible honor to join the Royal Caribbean family as godmother of Utopia of the Seas and set the tone for the parties to come,” said Meghan Trainor. “The best part is that we get to bring that weekend energy to the stage with my family and fans. What’s better than being on vacation with the people you love and dancing to your favorite music? Let’s make some beautiful memories and get this party started!”

Kicking off the three-night celebration, Royal Caribbean and Trainor will name Utopia in the presence of special guests, crew members, media partners, and 52 fans — one for every weekend of the year — and their guests. Trainor, as godmother, will join a longstanding maritime tradition when she bestows safekeeping onto the ship, its crew, and the guests who will sail aboard for years to come.

Keeping the party going will be Trainor’s exclusive show in the iconic open-air AquaTheater, and fans will be able to meet the star in person.

Utopia of the Seas will be the first Oasis-class ship to debut with a schedule of three-night weekend and four-night weekday voyages. Guests will be able to enjoy over 40 restaurants, bars, and party venues; two casinos; a train car dining experience; more pools than days to count; ice, air, and water entertainment; and more.

Every sailing on Utopia of the Seas will include a call at Perfect Day at CocoCay, which features a water park, the largest freshwater pool in the Caribbean and Bahamas, the adults-only Hideaway Beach, and more.
