NCL has announced that their newest ship will be named Norwegian Jewel. Why is it that with so many wonderful names available cruise lines keep using the same ones? ( RCCL's Jewel of the Seas) There are so many duplicate or triplicates out there!! Sounds like a great ship though.

I've been thinking about that myself. Pretty soon they'll get brazen and have ships like Norwegian Queen Mary II, Norwegian Carnival Victory and Norwegian Staten Island Ferry.

I dont think that is called for, its not about stealing names, remember NCL was the first real major cruise line in the 60's

It really does get awfully confusing, with the tremendous duplication of names amongst cruise ships. What is really incredible is the beautiful names they could come up with, and still be different. Even if they are on a "Jewel" kick, there could be a Norwegian Ruby or Emerald, which would still invite you to envision something beautiful. I think Diamond and Sapphire are out there already...or they really could get funky....How about Norwegian Tanzanite? :D

How about Norwegian Tanzanite? :D
Good idea; the whole ship could have purple decor and have a Tanzanite International shop onboard so you don't have to get off the ship! ;)

No, then we'd have to be continuosly reminded to be Tanzinite, let alone just at port talks. :D
When Tanzinite gets unpopular, they can use them to adorn dishes.
lol. That would be a funny one!
No, seriously, how about the Norwegian Beauty or Norwegian Delight or something like that. They could have the Norwegian Adventure, but there's the RCCL involvment again...

Haven't we been well reminded that Tanzanite is in limited supply? Even though I suspect they've been whipping up new batches of it in the backs of all those shops in St. Thomas.
