Royal Caribbean has released a video of the sea trials. Look here.

Listen carefully, and you might pick up on a barb aimed at Carnival. Of course you'd have to be a trivia nut like me to catch it.

Ok Dwayne... I tried to figure out what you were referring to and I didn't detect anything... What was the "barb" you discuss?

"This is really the pinnacle in the world of ship building today", is the last I heard. I did hear that she performed like a Ferrari. If that's true, I want to see her go from 0-60 in 3 seconds

I still don't get it Dwayne... you must be really stretching to hear something that is a jab at CCL in there. I don't know of any ship builder that wouldn't make that claim about the ship they are building....

Ding! Ding! Ding!

That was it. Carnival's answer to the Oasis was the Carnival Pinnacle. They put the project on the back burner for the time being. They even named the Supper Club (now Steakhouse) the Pinnacle on the Splendor.

Pinnacle has been the name of the Reservation Only restaurant on Holland America for a long time.
