Default Ovation Of The Seas is the 3rd Quantum-class ship

Applause please......In steel cutting ceremonies earlier today, RCI announced that the 3rd Quantum-class ship will be named Ovation Of The Seas.

**Standing** for the name of the new ship. It works well and fits in with the other ships in that class. Just wonder when she will be launched and where she will be based.

I guess I'm going to be different. I don't like the name at all. There were 2 others mentioned (can't remember them right now). I would have preferred either one over this.

The other two names are Passion and Pulse. I don't like Pulse at all. Passion will hopefully be used for the next ship name. Did they name the 3rd Oasis-class yet?

Not yet. They usually name them when they lay the keel or first stone or whatever it's called. I would take passion but pulse sounds dumb.

Another update:

Royal Caribbean filed the paperwork to trademark five more names on September 15. They are: Spectrum Of The Seas, Joy Of The Seas, Harmony Of The Seas, Emblem Of The Seas, and Apex Of The Seas. The Passion and Pulse are still actively trademarked by the cruise line.

Emblem Of the Seas? Uh, no. Not too crazy about Spectrum, Joy, or Apex either. Harmony works.

I saw that too and I'm not surprised. Just hope it doesn't stick.

So that is 7 trademark names. We know of 2 more Oasis Class ships coming, what are the other 5 ships going to be? Do Royal need another 5 ships with the 4 Oasis and 3 Quantum class ships?

Oh, I like them all except Spectrum.

I'm not concerned with the names.


I love Royal ships and hope that we get some more sailing from Florida ports.

With all of the ships that Royal is projected to build it sounds to me like they are revamping their fleet. Maybe some of the older ships will be phased out.

I'm kind of surprised the Majesty is still in the fleet, but then they don't seem to have a problem filling it week after week. Obviously it will be the next ship to leave the fleet but there aren't any dates floating around yet.
