Default Stunning announcement by Mickey Arison!

In a stunning announcement this morning, Mickey Arison said that the previously announced name of Cunard's new-build, "Queen Victoria," was a heinous lie, caused when hackers broke into the corporate internet server. Arison said the actual new name of the Vista-class ship will not be a "Queen" since it is not meant to be a trans-atlantic ocean liner and that the "Queen" names are reserved for that class of ship.
He said he didn't want to publicize the name yet, but because of the pressure, he then proudly announced her REAL name: Princess Costacarnivaliadamwind.

There is an old and, perhaps apocryphal, story about the naming of the original Queen Mary. It is cited in "The Only Way To Cross"... perhaps the best book ever written on the subject of express mail ships.

The story has the President of Cunard Line meeting with King George V... and asking the King for permission to name Cunard's newest and largest liner... after "England's most popular Queen", having in mind, of course, Queen Victoria. George V immediately responded "splendid"... "I'll tell her in the morning"... referring of course to his wife, Queen Mary. That, according to the story, is how the original Queen Mary got her name. I suspect it is time that Cunard redressed the unfortunate incident.

We could do with a "Queen Victoria".
