EXCLUSIVE: Superstar Fan Bingbing tells us about her favourite cruise ship


She is one of the most influential Chinese celebrities in the world, starring in both Chinese and Western movies.

Now Fan Bingbing says she has joined the liked of Princess Diana, Princess Kate, Audrey Hepburn and former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in being a godmother to a ship.

She is the ambassador of the Ovation of the Seas – one of the newest and most technologically advanced vessels to sail in Southeast Asia and China.


“It is a great honour being named a Godmother of a cruise ship,” Ms Fan told Cruise&Travel Asia. “I’ve watched some films and movies and I am absolutely delighted to be named as a Godmother.”

Aside from being the fourth-highest paid actress in the world, Ms Fan is also known for her style and fashion. She was previously a brand ambassador for the luxury French fashion house Louis Vuitton and says what she loves most about the Ovation of the Seas is how chic it is.

“I love the design of this cruise ship because it combines style with a feeling of relaxation, which is necessary when you’re on a holiday. I’m looking forward to all the activities, the entertainment and especially the restaurants onboard. The food looks so scrumptious,” she said.
