Default Oasis of the Seas Godmothers: Best (and Worst) Choice?

So my seven godmothers have been announced, and I'd like to know, who's your favorite of the picks? Is it Daisy Fuentes, international television personality and producer; gymnast Shawn Johnson; actress Keisha Knight Pulliam; swimmer Dara Torres; actress Jane Seymour; figure skater Michelle Kwan; or Gloria Estefan?

And just for fun ... since I am the the largest and most amusing cruise ship ever built ... which pick are you most disappointed with?

Dara Torres is my favorite. Being over 40 and winning 3 silver medals in the 2008 Olympics was inspirational, plus her having competed in the Olympics five times since 1984. Just amazing.

I don't understand the selection of Keisha Knight Pulliam.

I picked Jane Seymour -- she falls more in line with the classic godmothers I picture (Lauren Bacall, for example)

I really do believe the description of Daisy Fuentes is a bit of a stretch.
The only thing I ever see her on is a Bahama Celebration cruise commercial & infomercials. Woohoo!!!!!!
This is the one I am most dissapointed with........

Gloria Estefan -- a ship home-ported in south Florida could hardly do
without a Miami Cuban, and she's a good fit for the "Entertainment" zone.

RCI, a year or so ago, commissioned some DWTS pros to do a dance
contest for their ships, which didn't do well and has since been pulled -- but the list has two DWTS contestants, Seymour and Johnson, and could have had Yamaguchi (instead of Kwan) and Coughlin (instead of Torres).

I also voted for Jane Seymour. I also thought she would be a classic godmother. Im not sure I understand why there are 7, one for each neighborhood though...why not just one?

Daisy Fuentes -why?
Keisha Knight Pulliam--another why? I like her, but why a godmother?

The others are good choices in my opinion.

Gloria Estefan was the Godmother of the Empress of the Seas. Guess since the Empress is now sailed under Pullmantur's flag she has been re-Godmothered with the Oasis. DW and I have interesting stories about the cruise we shared with Gloria and her kids on the Freedom of the Seas back in 2006. She was a blast at Boleros!

I voted for Dara Torres because I think she is the most accomplished (though the other athletes were good choices and reflect the activities of the ship).

I was a little disappointed with all of the performers. Gloria Estefan has already been a godmother (though since her ship is retired I guess its nice to give her a new one) and all the others seem a little like "has-beens."

I do appreciate the fact that there are a wide mix of races and ages represented though- I'm glad RCI managed to celebrate all types of women.

Forgive me for being naiive, but what did she do to deserve being a GODMOTHER of a ship this magnificent? I just don't get it.

By the looks of the poll, I see Daisy have voted for herself a few times.

I favor the little people over celebs. I mean who out of all those ladies is ever going to cruise Oasis? That's one of the perks for the Godmothers. So I think they should be real people who cruise who have accomplishments or something that make them outstanding women.
