Annoucing Kathy Lette as Godmother to Scenic Jasper


Scenic has named Kathy Lette, much loved Australian author, as Godmother to forthcoming Scenic Space-Ship, Scenic Jasper. Kathy will christen the 169-passenger river cruiser in Vienna in April before it commences a full season sailing the Rhine, Main, Danube.

Kathy is well known for the novel Puberty Blues, which was made into a major film and a TV mini-series. After several years as a newspaper columnist and TV sitcom writer in America and Australia, she's written 11 international bestsellers.

Speaking on her role of Godmother, Kathy said: "I am thrilled to be smashing the champers over the bow of this luxurious Aussie vessel and to be unveiling my leopard mini-skirted figure head. Yes, now I can finally say that I have prowess!"

Michelle Black, GM Sales and Marketing, added: “We are so delighted to have Kathy as Godmother to Scenic Jasper because she really is a perfect match for our brand - both iconic Australians that are proud of their Australian heritage but are now renowned and loved globally.”

Scenic Jasper and its sister ship, Scenic Opal, join the Scenic ‘Space-Ship’ fleet as the next generation of river cruisers and bring the fleet total to 11.
