Funny, I did not think of that before but it is so true. Some names have just been used TOO MUCH. I give RC credit for coming up with some of my favorite names:

Radiance
Rhapsody
Grandeur
Voyager

These are all great ship names, but better without "of the seas" in my opinion.

But it is true, in the last few years it was like they forgot how to find an original name. Mariner, Freedom, Liberty, Independence (American Hawaii Lines) were all recycled. Genesis was original, but I have a feeling they might have focus-grouped it and people said it sounded too Biblical.

Maybe that is why they had the contest?
