Well, how many sunshine class ships have they ordered? Three? They may want to go for "triplet" names, as they did with Freedom, Liberty & Independence.

Passion of the Seas
Climax of the Seas
Lust of the Seas

The only one I like there is Vantage of the Seas. The others don't really work for me. Personally I wanted there to be an Illumination of the Seas, but I guess it is Royal's choice what they call the ship.

They also have Traveler and Journey
They were probably for the Voyager Class.

These aren't registered, just my ideas. If there's threes and it's the sunshine class....
Sunlight of the Seas, Moonlight of the Seas and Starlight of the Seas or
Sunshine of the Seas, Moonshine (not what it sound like ) of the Seas and Starshine of the Seas.

Slogans could be.... Having fun under the Sun, Romancing under the Moon, and Enjoying the Beauty under the Stars.....

Didn't RCCL have a contest for one of the ships?

vantage reminds me of cigarettes
ovation is a hair cell product and also ovation is too close to ovulation.
Quantum reminds me of physics

Anthem is good, but would have been better had they built another Freedom class ship to group that with similar names.

Pulse and Passion just don't do it for me.

I think they need to go back to the drawing board, or do a contest taking names. Yeah, do a contest with a free trip for two onboard when it reaches Port Everglades. Perfect.

Of the OP's list I like Ovation best.

Merriam-Webster online - ovation: an expression or demonstration of popular acclaim especially by enthusiastic applause

Lessons learned from last cruise for next:
1. Passport - I promise I will never leave home without it again!
2. Peanut M&M's - Do you know how much they cost in the ship's store???
3. Money, lots and lots of money - Need more money!
4. Heck with the rest of the list, just bring lots of money!

I love Illumination of the Seas as well. Fits the "sunshine" theme perfectly. I like Ovation as well, but I'm not a fan of the other names. If they are serious about Ovation of the Seas why not Encore of the Seas?

I agree that Quantum reminds me of physics and Vantage reminds me of Vontage, the phone company. Such strange names for ships.

They ran out of the good names a long time ago.

The last 4 are just bad. Independence, Liberty, Allure, Oasis.

It's time to start re-hashing the names like Hal does.

Sovereign, Majesty are the best. Then Monarch, Majesty as they go...

I had Passion in my mind before i saw the list.
Anthem sounds cool
Ovation, Vantage, i just don't get
Pulse sounds rubbish
Quantum reminds me of 007 but has a nice ring to it when adding "of the seas" to the end!

Ooohh ... I like "Moonlight of the Seas"!

Of course, it would help if RC would just let us know anything about these new ships that they expect to be unveiling in the next few years. My memory isn't what it once was (whose is? ) -- but, I seem to recall RC dropping LOTS of "hints", in advance of the release of their two "Genesis Class" ships!
