Cool Just for fun. Name Oasis III

Adam Goldstein just called and wants you to name Oasis III. The ship is headed for China and he wants a name that will appeal to the Chinese people.

I'm clueless! A friend suggested "Mazu of the Seas". Mazu means godess?

Google helped me find these...
Xian Dao of the Seas ( Xian Dao means 'Pioneer'/'Leader'?)

Yin Qui of the Seas (Yin Qui which might mean mean 'Heroic Spirit' with female undertones)

Why not keep it simple:
Lǜzhōu of the Seas (which means Oasis)

RCI trademarked three names last year that have not been used: Passion Of the Seas, Pulse OTS, Ovation OTS.

The name of a ship is not what makes for a great cruise. A Chinese name in Europe would not be a problem.

Dragon of the Seas. Or since it's a ship, Morey of the Seas.

Of the three trademarked names I also think Passion OTS is the best one.

I really wish they'd use previous names, the way Princess does. I'd love to see another Sun Viking, Song Of Norway, or Nordic Empress for example, instead of the 'of the seas' stuff.

When you hear or see "... of the Seas", you automatically know it's a Royal Caribbean ship. That brand recognition is huge and isn't going to change and IMHO I like the seas on a cruise ship name.

I don't think Royal Caribbean would want to name a ship with a Asian name; since at some point they will place the ship in another part of the world. Asian of the Seas; would not sound good sailing out of Europe or Miami.

I can see why they have never been used. I think of all the cruise lines I find RC to be the worst at naming. Never give a ship a name the suggest a land fixture like "Oasis" or "Summit"

I would name it "Genesis of the Seas" like the original project name- I loved that name, except I really wanted them to drop "of the Seas" - I really hate having to type so many letters every time I refer to Royal Caribbean ships.

Orientals would like Genghis Kahn of the Seas.

Submitted in response to my beer question above.

Not being much of a wine drinker, can't help you with that. As for beer, there may be something, but I don't of any. Royal Caribbean had a microbrew several years ago that was called Royal - it was a Belgian ale that I thought was very good. Don't know why they stop it, but I definitely hated to see it go away.

You could always use the world known abbreviation (also used by Royal Caribbean themselves) OTS instead of "of the Seas", but I like the name and you know where it belongs when you hear it. But I agree that typing it out all the time is a lot. Try OTS as in Oasis OTS.
I think we need this to become common practice for all.

Of course there are some people who don't mind typing . , Of the Seas.
