Your Ship Has Come In... Now Name It!




USA TODAY Announces Unprecedented Contest



McLean, Va. - In an unprecedented move, USA TODAY and Royal Caribbean
International announced a contest today that will provide the everyday
traveller the opportunity to name the world's two largest cruise ships,
presently code-named "Genesis I" and "Genesis II." The winner of the
naming contest will attend the gala naming ceremony as well as embark
on a week-long, first-class, expense-paid cruise vacation on the ship
he or she named.


The six-week-long contest breaks maritime tradition where
heads of state, corporations and governments selected the name of a
ship. It is believed this is the first time that a member of the
general public, not associated with the cruise industry, will have the
chance to name a major cruise ship.


The contest kicks off today in USA TODAY and on USATODAY.com.
To launch the contest, Gene Sloan, USA TODAY travel reporter, will look
at how ships are traditionally named and how repetitive cruise ship
names historically have been. Readers will then be invited to submit
their names for the new ships at namethatship.usatoday.com between now and February 29.


The to-be-named Genesis I and II, weighing in at 220,000 tons and
accommodating 5,400 guests each, debut in 2009 and 2010. Known for
introducing cruise-industry firsts such as the Royal Promenade - an
entertainment boulevard of restaurants, bars and shops - rock walls,
and
surf simulators, Royal Caribbean seeks entries that best encapsulate
the universe of experiences a Royal Caribbean cruise provides its
guests, rather than ones that focus solely on the sheer size of the
ships.


Full contest and prize description and official rules can be
found at
namethatship.usatoday.com. The Name That Ship contest coincides with
the launch of USA TODAY's new cruise community. Readers can log on to
cruises.usatoday.com for an active community of cruise enthusiasts and
get an extensive resource of useful information for all their cruise
travelling
needs. Readers also can check out Gene Sloan's cruising blog and join
the discussion at USATODAY's new cruise forum all at
cruises.usatoday.com.








Royal Caribbean International is a global cruise brand with 21 ships
currently in service and three under construction. The line also offers
unique land-tour vacations in Alaska, Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe,
South America and New Zealand through its cruisetour division.

Interesting, I'm surprised they aren't going to use Genesis of the Seas since that's how most people already know it.
