A ceremonial naming of Royal Caribbean's Symphony of the
Seas will be done by a family rather than a traditional godmother.
The 5,400-passenger Symphony will be dedicated by actors Carlos
and Alexa PenaVega, along with their 17-month-old son, Ocean.
Royal Caribbean said the PenaVegas have celebrated a number
of family firsts on Royal Caribbean's Oasis-class ships and "personify the
spirit of the new ship, redefining the way families stay and play."
The naming ceremony will take place when the Symphony
arrives at its permanent home in Miami in November.
Carlos PenaVega is known for his role as Carlos Garcia in
the Nickelodeon musical comedy "Big Time Rush." He has been in feature films, as well as the
TV remake of "Grease: Live" as Kenickie.
Alexa PenaVega made a name for herself at an early age as Carmen
Cortez in the "Spy Kids" film series. She has since starred in a
number of feature films, TV series and TV films, most recently "Enchanted
Christmas" for Hallmark Channel.
Royal Caribbean said that Alexa, Carlos and Ocean have a
collective 9 million followers across their social media platforms, and "are
the embodiment of the adventurous millennial family."
