True, it is no big deal at all, but I'm simply curious why the Carnival Cruise Line roll call area continues to have the ships listed in the order it does.

All of the current ships have had the name 'Carnival' in front of the individual ship name for quite some time. If those Fantasy-class ships were also listed that way, it would create one perfectly alphabetical roster.

The remaining roll calls for Holiday and Celebration could also go away. Some future passengers are accidentally posting there for the Bahamas Celebration sailings (an entirely different line).

Again, just curious why.

Well, alrighty then . . .

24 hours, and 220 viewings later, it's obvious I'm the only curious one on this subject. Sorry.

Got the same reaction when I asked the same from two hosts/moderators about a year and a half ago.

Moving on . . .

Ok I will stick my opinion out there...

I think its because of the corporate brand. The correct official name is "Carnival XXXX"

Its sort of like Lego brick not wanting to be called "Lego's" but Lego building bricks, or just Lego Bricks.

Just my 2 cents worth... Keep the change if its overvalued


Why some don't have the Carnival name I don't know....

That's a good question because on the Carnival site http://www.carnival.com/FunShips.aspx they list all of their ships with "Carnival" in front of the name.

maybe nobody went back and updated the listings. When I had a little website going it was hard to stay up with all the updates. With the size of CC maybe it was just overlooked.

I'll go with that final answer, which is probably most appropriate.

Thanks, and happy crusing all!!

DGP: you got a better response at least than I did when I once asked why Carnival spells Verandah deck one way on the deck plan and as Veranda in other signage

Admittedly still a very "low priority" observation, but even more than a year later I'm still personally curious about the ship order of the Carnival fleet listed in the Roll Call area.

Also somewhat interesting are the subjects of roll call posts under the former ship Celebration, and the continued listing of Holiday.

If you check the other roll calls you will see most of the ships that were transferred to other lines, still listed under their original cruise line

Oh, I did.
Got a rather condescending reply at mach speed.
Again, it's not an issue by any means, just curiosity.

Thanks Yep, that's probably the case as well, but just odd that in the past year, none of the roll call posts for Celebration had anything to do with that ship, or even Carnival, at all.
