Royal Caribbean Post Round-Up: January 29, 2017

Matt Hochberg

Hope you had a great week (maybe one week closer to your next Royal Caribbean cruise?) and you had a chance to keep up with what's new with Royal Caribbean this week. But if not, here's a roundup of this week's news.

The big news this week was Royal Caribbean's registering of three new cruise ship names, including the widely-rumored name for its fourth Oasis class cruise ship.

Earlier in the week, Royal Caribbean filed to trademark three ship names with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.  These names include Symphony of the Seas, Sunrise of the Seas and Valhalla of the Seas.

Symphony of the Seas is expected to be the name of the cruise line's next cruise ship that will debut, although Royal Caribbean has made no official announcement regarding that yet.  The other two names registered remain unknown as to which ship they will be registered to, if any.

Despite Royal Caribbean not announced the name of its fourth Oasis class cruise ship, which debuts in Spring 2018, there have been a few different convincing rumors this month that seem to point to the name of the ship being Symphony of the Seas, including a construction site photo taken of the ship's name being prepared.
