Has anyone out there noticed that Carnival and RCCL have ships with simliar names? Carnival Freedom and RCCL's Freedom of the Seas. Carnival Liberty and RCCL's Liberty of the Seas...Its getting rediculous. Can't these two Cruise superpowers come up with any better names and stop copying each other? Actually I tend to think that CCL copied off of RCCL...but who cares who did what...its nuts. Thank God Holland America is original...Lets face it...its hard to copy a ships name with DAM in it. Ok I'm done.

Personally, they could all be called the same name for all I care. Just put me on one of them and let me cruise away. In fact, I'm going in 5 days on the Victory. (Carnival's Victory in case there is another). HoooooooRaaaaaaaay!

I sure hope you're going on a cruise soon, daddyx2. You need to chill..!!

Complaining about the names of the vessels in the various fleets around the world is a bit out there, don't you think..??

I think you are reading more into his post than really exists. If you have an opposing opinion it's one thing but picking on what daddyx2 posts about is just pointless. That really doesn't fly well here, be nice or to use your words, "chill."

I have noticed that and often wondered the same thing.

This kind of takes me back to the "Name a cruise ship" thread!

Celebrity's next mega-ship?
Eternity?

Moon Princess
Rainbow Princess

Master & Commander of The Seas

Okay, I'm done.
