All good choices, but why so many?

I have no opinion on the choices but I too ask why so many. Now RCI is trying to changing something else and I'm kinda getting tired of the arrogance.

It has always been 1 godmother from the beginning of time (well, since the beginning of having godmothers.)

Good Choices! I thought Gloria was already a godmother to a Royal ship??
Maybe not??

7 neighborhoods 7 godmothers great idea!! Why not do something different for a change?

Why not in the future a godfather instead of a godmother? Or better yet godparents both a godmother and godfather.

I had liked the idea of only one UNTIL the tribute to 9-11 (Mariner I believe) so can't complain about this decision.

The 9-11 tribute was awesome!

I would like to see cruiselines pick cruisers that love the line as godparents instead of somewhat famous people who maybe don't even cruise or like cruising. :eek:

Gloria and her family have been on Royal cruises in the past as a passenger but what about the other 6 godmothers?

What about choosing godparents that have many completed cruises with the line. There are many cruisers with over 100 cruises on one line.

When we pick godparents for our children don't we pick godparents the love and care about them.

Does anyone know what Daisy F. is a producer of? She has a title of Producer all I know is she was a VJ on MTV years ago and she has a clothing line at Kohl's.

Let's not forget Holland America Zaandam had two - the Olsen Twins (they were about 14 at the time, and I was there).

They read their script from a piece of paper, trading lines back & forth. Just another photo option...

As for Oasis - why not? Thery have done everything else "over the top."

The thing is that the night is a big charity event for "Make-a-Wish Foundation." and so I like that they are doing something extra special for the charity. RCL is donating the proceeds from 1000 rooms' sales to the charity from that night. And if you book a room on that inaugural night you get a discount on the following 4-day cruise.

I amk not sure which godmothers will do which neighborhoods, or if they will do one at a time, or what, but I know they have a special dinner for the Make a Wish guests and other special events AND they will sail that night so the guests can enjoy the whole ship casino & shops, etc.
