Last week I introduced to you the March Cruise Ship Madness where we matchup cruise ships in NCAA basketball tournament style to see which ship comes out as the champion. The first week of matchups are in the books and we are on to week two. Each week your vote enters you into a drawing for a $200 gift certificate. Vote every week for the best chance to win. Also, if you share the contest with your friends, you will get an extra entry for every friend that enters.

Week one was a success! The Norwegian Getaway defeated the Carnival Fantasy with 85% of the votes. The big winner of the week was the Ruby Princess who took all 100% of the votes in the matchup against the MS Noordam. Also winning in week one was the Celebrity Solstice and the Norwegian Sun. Each of these ships took 57% of the votes and defeated the Oasis of the Seas and the MS Nieuw Amsterdam respectively.

Carnival Breeze Officially Named

The Carnival Breeze had its official naming ceremony yesterday and was officially christened.  Yes you are right, she has been sailing since June but now she is officially christened.  It was hard to find if any other cruise ships waited for six months before getting their naming ceremony but Carnival wanted to wait till she was home.  Doug Parker of Cruise Radio tweeted his summary of what Gerry Cahill said about waiting:

Tracy Wilson Mourning, the ships godmother, broke the bottle of champagne over the hull after naming the ship. Tracy then spoke of her Honey Shine Mentoring Program where girls learn about health, nutrition and, character development. Shannon Hurst Lane tweeted a moving quote from Tracy Wilson Mourning:

Carnival then presented a check for $25,000 to the Honey Shine Program.
