I'm just curious. Does anyone know why Carnival named another ship (the Splendor) after a ship in the RCCL fleet (Splendour of the Seas)? I don't really care what they call the ships, but I would think with all the creativity that goes into the decor, etc. they could come up with distinctive, original names for their fleet.

The name thing is getting a little tedious. While in San Juan on the Liberty Of The Seas the Carnival Liberty pulled in next to us. So what's next? The Carnival Independence? The Carnival Genesis?

One does wonder about the names. The Carnival Liberty came out in 2005 and Royal Caribbean's Liberty in 2007. Royal Caribbean's Freedom in 2006 and Carnival's Freedom in 2007. But they aren't the only cruise lines with similar names. Regent cruise lines has the Seven Seas Mariner, Voyager, and Navigator. What about the Carnival Spirit, Norwegian Spirit and Seabourn Spirit, Wind Spirit and American Spirit? Or Crown Princess and Norwegian Crown, Norwegian Sun, Norwegian Star, and Star Princess, Sun Princess. At least those "Dam" ship names haven't been repeated.

I miss the old names that had character and a sense of uniqueness...Sun Viking, Nordic Prince, Song Of America, Festivale, etc.

I saw the Black Watch, the former Royal Viking something-or-other in Stockholm harbor; now there's a classically beautiful ship with a very unique name.

These are the kinds of names that sound so much more special than copycat names!

Yes indeed. The old names seemed to show that some thought had been put into it. The Black Watch has quite a following of loyal cruisers - from the U.K. if I recall correctly. It is the former Royal Viking Star.

Are you trying to be offensive today or is it just coming naturally?
