Customers of cruise line Royal Caribbean Cruises
have been given the opportunity to name its up and coming new cruise ships.
In conjunction with USA Today, an ordinary cruise holiday passenger will now have the honour of picking a name for one of the two cruise ships currently known as Genesis I and Genesis II.
The winner will be chosen in a naming contest and will then attend its gala naming ceremony and be treated to a seven-day expenses-paid cruise.

Moreover, it claims that the move is a break from maritime tradition which normally sees the naming undertaken by a head of state or similar.
