I don't "like" to beat up on NCL. I like the company but you just can't ignore decisions like this and be a cheerleader all the time.
I just have to say - never have I seen a story like this get so little traction in the press.
Picking names for new vessels can be a big deal if you position it correctly, but hardly any media at all outside of the regular cruise-beat writers even touched this story - and very few of us at that.
I am the editor, but I also speculate, ask questions and play devil's advocate. I reserve the right to change my mind.
