Default ship names

it is starting to get hard to know which ship belongs to who?

Carnival has name at least 3 ships with the same name as RCL
legend, freedom and splendor. Can't they think of original names

I think Carnival should use names from their retired ships. Names such as Mardi Gras, Carnivale, Festivale, Tropicale, and Jubilee. The newer Carnival ships have names with little or no relation to "fun". The 3 ships that have the same name as Royal Caribbean's names, Legend, Freedom, and Splendor, can be told apart from Carnival because the ship's name on Royal Caribbean is connected with "Of The Seas". So a Royal Caribbean Ship would be called Legend Of The Seas rather than Royal Caribbean Legend.But there is also a 3rd Legend ship, called the Seabourn Legend. The first three ships of Carnival's Spirit Class(Spirit,Pride, and Legend) were named after the Seabourn Ships, not Royal Caribbean. I don't know if the Carnival ships Freedom and Splendor were named after the Royal Caribbean ships. The last Royal Caribbean ship not to originally have the "Of The Seas" extension was the Nordic Empress. But after her refurbishment in 2004 she was renamed Empress Of The Seas.

Hi paddletoe53,

The Splendor is a new ship. Here's the link to the Carnival site to read more about her:

This ship is way too big for my tastes!

And I agree with Earl! Our last cruise was on NCL Sun, our next on Sun Princess. Very confusing!
