A few weeks after registering a number of names for a cruise ship, Royal Caribbean has sent a survey to its most loyal passengers asking for their input on which one to choose for the next Oasis Class ship.

While Royal Caribbean's fifth Oasis Class ship, Wonder of the Seas, is just a few months away from launching, the cruise line is looking to move forward with its sixth and final Oasis Class ship.

In mid-December, Royal Caribbean registered 24 different trademarks for names of a possible cruise ship with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Earlier today, Pinnacle Club members in Royal Caribbean's Crown and Anchor Society received an email asking them for opinions on the names.

"The objective of this survey is to hear from you, our valued Pinnacle Guests, to see which of the final contenders for the next Oasis Class ship names are your favorite," the email stated.

The survey first asked to rank the names from least to most appealing.

It then asked to rate the appeal of each name, followed by choosing a favorite.

Here are all the new names trademarked:

  • MAGNIFICENCE OF THE SEAS
  • FANTASIA OF THE SEAS
  • PARADISE OF THE SEAS
  • HAVEN OF THE SEAS
  • MELODY OF THE SEAS
  • GRACE OF THE SEAS
  • SANCTUARY OF THE SEAS
  • ILLUMINATION OF THE SEAS
  • UNITY OF THE SEAS
  • INTRIGUE OF THE SEAS
  • ARIA OF THE SEAS
  • EUPHORIA OF THE SEAS
  • SPLENDOR OF THE SEAS
  • AWE OF THE SEAS
  • ETERNITY OF THE SEAS
  • EDEN OF THE SEAS
  • VIBRANCE OF THE SEAS
  • BLISS OF THE SEAS
  • AURA OF THE SEAS
  • UTOPIA OF THE SEAS
  • JOY OF THE SEAS
  • MARVEL OF THE SEAS
  • NIRVANA OF THE SEAS
  • DIVINE OF THE SEAS
