The way ship naming is going for Carnival.... we'll soon see:
The Carnival Domination followed by sister ships
Carnival Decimation & Carnival Destruction, with an option on
Carnival Overkill, Carnival Overwhelm and possibly
Carnival Blowout, Carnival Vanquish, Carnival Elimination
& Carnival Juggernaut
I think the Carnival Crush sounds kinda cool. Or maybe
Carnival Bash. Even dangerously cool. Build them with a ram-bow.
Fantasy Class: future sisters to MV Ecstasy & MV Elation
MV Seduction, MV Titillation, MV Bliss, MV Nirvana & MV Orgasm
Pride Class: future sisters to Pride & Spirit
Vanity, Compulsion, Obsession and ultimately Guilt (or Gilt)
Celebrity ... After Summit and Apex
Comes the Outer Limit, Spatial, Stellar, Galactic and finally Cosmic
Where does a black hole fit into all of this?
Disney - I'd love to sail on any ship called Mickey Mouse, or Goofy for that matter. Piloted by Captains Nemo and Hook, respectively. Maitre D' s name is Lumiere. The first officer's name is Donald, and he's very jealous that no ships are named after him.
RCI - Exploitation of the Seas springs to mind. Also Perturbation of the Seas, Disruption of the Seas and eventually Plunderer of the Seas. Personally, after the dumping incident, I like Latrine of the Seas.
HAL - How about the Hooverdam? Personally, I think we should petition them to rename all their ships more politely. Like Noordarn, Volendarn, Maasdarn and the like. Or Noordang, Volendang and Maasdang.
Costa - The Costa Nocomprenda, The Costa Toomanylingua, The Costa Wassamattayoua and Costa Fahgettabouta
Princess- The Tanzanite Princess is a very cruise-pertinent name. Also Swarovsky Princess, Gucci Princess and (the ultimate) Tiffany Princess. Endorsement possibilities abound for corporate name positioning. Why not sell out completely, and name one the IBM Princess, or Microsoft Princess for that matter? Soon we'll be going to see a show in the Delta Airlines Theatre, then later relax and dance a bit in the Coca-Cola Lounge. Next is a food court for sure, complete with KFC, Subway and maybe a Sbarro for that international look.
Deck chairs will have advertisements printed on them, and be rented by the hour.
10 minutes of commercials will preceed the show every night.
There will be a Pepsi logo printed on the bottom of the pool,
And we'll be served Dole Bananas, Campbell's Soup and Sara Lee Cheesecake.
Mark my words, I am the Nostradamus of Cruise Mates.... Itsa Comin'
