Azamara Club Cruises named executives at two travel publications as godmothers of the Azamara Pursuit.

Afar Media executive vice president and chief revenue officer Ellen Asmodeo-Giglio and Travel Weekly UK editor in chief Lucy Huxley will christen Azamara's third ship on Aug. 28 in Southampton, England.

The choice is a first for Azamara. Its previous two ships did not have godmothers. All three of the ships were originally built for Renaissance Cruises.

"Ellen and Lucy's fearless dedication to adventure, and respect and admiration for different cultures, aligns with Azamara's commitment and passion to Destination Immersion experiences," said Larry Pimentel, president and CEO of Azamara. "Both Ellen and Lucy are travel influencers, and we couldn't be more thrilled to have them christen our new ship."
