Royal Caribbean has selected seven godmothers to represent its seven neighborhoods, and Cruise Critic members are already stumped as to how the women match up with the neighborhoods (see: http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showt...1092939&page=2).

So we think it would be fun to play a little game called "Match the Godmother to a Neighborhood." Take the seven godmothers -- Gloria Estefan, Michelle Kwan, Jane Seymour, Dara Torres, Keisha Knight Pulliam, Shawn Johnson and Daisy Fuentes -- and match them to the neighborhood you think is most appropriate -- Central Park, Boardwalk, the Royal Promenade, Pool & Sports Zone, Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Center, Entertainment Place and Youth Zone -- and tell us why.

I'll go first:

Central Park: Jane Seymour, Dr. Quinn likes to be outside
Boardwalk: Michelle Kwan, lost -- looking for the ice rink
Royal Promenade: Gloria Estefan, queen of pop?
Pool & Sports Zone: Dara Torres, Olympic swimmer, duh
Spa & Fitness Center: Shawn Johnson, gymnasts go with the gym
Entertainment Place: Daisy Fuentes, she's an entertainer
Youth Zone: Keisha Knight Pulliam, once a child star

Now you go!

P.S. Seven winners picked at random from among the correct entries will get a prize. So now you have more incentive to play!

Let's see here... A few of these people I'm not so sure who they are, but here's to trying!

Central Park: Jane Seymour -- Process of elimination. I placed all the other ones first.
Boardwalk: Keshia Knight Pulliam -- Comedy shows are her thing, and the Boarwalk is a pretty fun place.
Royal Promenade: Daisy Fuentes -- She sells stuff, including her own clothing line. Looks like she'll belong here.
Pool & Sports Zone: Dara Torres -- This one seems obvious enough. Where else to put a swimmer?
Spa & Fitness Center: Michelle Kwan -- I guess she kinda fits in here.
Entertainment Place: Gloria Estefan -- Entertainer seems to describe her.
Youth Zone: Shawn Johnson -- She's still eligible for the teen program!
