We've got an hour and 15 minutes till the first reveal. Does anyone know where to look? Will RCCL tweet it, post a press release, post a video, post a chairmans blog, or maybe even just send Cruise Critic the name every hour? Where should we be looking?

They seem to be working the social media angle pretty close, so I would guess to follow @oasisandallure and RCI's Facebook account.


For those not very social media saavy, here are the direct links -

As promised our 7 Godmothers will be revealed today, one per hour. We're happy to reveal our 1st Godmother of Oasis is... Gloria Estefan!
Wasn't she also Nordic Empress? That was our first RCCL cruise.

They posted it on Twitter:

They actually have an official corporate account as well but have never used it: http://twitter.com/royalcaribbean

They do use the international ones though:

Yeah, it's so good to see them getting back to what a god mother should be. I wish they would say the neighborhood though. I think we can assume that Gloria Estefan is Entertainment Place. But Shawn Johnson could be The Pool and Sports Zone or Vitality at Seas Spa and Fitness Zone. She may even be boardwalk though, because of the aquatheater's gymnastics element.

I thought maybe Rihanna would be a GM since she'll be onboard as entertainment for the naming.

Do they have to be women?
Here's my predictions:
1) Central Park: Al Gore (green) or Rudy Giuliani (NYC)
2) The Pool and Sports Zone: Shawn Johnson (she's somewhere)
3) Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Center: I can't think of any health people.
4) Boardwalk: Who are the two Vegas magician guys?
5) Royal Promenade: Donald Trunmp (It's going to be huge!!)
6) Youth Zone: Miley Cyrus (gotta be a teen star)
7) Entertainment Place: Gloria Estefan

I think that there is only one Godfather, which is Senator Inowe (sp?) who got the laws changed so NCL could base a ship in hawaii.

I could see Bob Greene (from Oprah) or one of the Biggest Loser trainers ing the Vitality area. I could also see a healthy chef like Giada De Laurentis.

Do you mean Sigfriend and Roy? They don't work Vegas anymore but that's a thought. Extending the boardwalk metaphor a bit, a former Miss America would work, since that happens in Atlantic City.

Can someone please explain the relevance of these people to the oasis? And also what is the purpose of "Godmothers" of a ship?

I like the idea of bringing her "back into the fold" since Empress is no longer on RCL's roster. I saw Gloria on Kathy Griffin's show the other day and was reminded of what a warm personality she is. Good choice, RCL.
