I mentioned in the other thread that they had a contest to name the Destiny. It was one of the last original names they have used, other than some of the Fantasy class ships. All of the Spirit class ships are recycled names. They may be saving the name "Pinnacle" just in case they ever build a 200,000 tn ship. I sorta doubt they do anytime soon though.

Well, at least three of the four Spirit class ships were recycled. I believe the names Spirit,Pride, & Legend came from the Seabourn ships also owned by Carnival Corp & Plc. The Carnival Miracle though was new.

Yep, I forgot about the Miracle being a new name for a cruise ship. Thanks for pointing out my error. I was thinking of the Miracle that does Yacht Charters. Which shouldn't be considered a cruise ship.

Any predictions about the "placement" of the Magic???

I am guessing Splendor back to Europe 2011 (when the Magic comes out)....Conquest to California and Magic to Galveston.

Your guess seems pretty logical to me. They should be making an announcement pretty soon I would think.

Let's just hope they retire at least one ship.

I don't see them retiring any ships anytime soon. The oldest ship in the fleet is now the Fantasy 1990. They just put 250 million into the eight Fantasy class ships.

Pete,

Carnival likes to make people wonder about their next moves. I figured they'd dump the Fantasy off on some foreign port and then they upgrade it and keep in the U.S.
