A while back, as I was trying to come up with a name for a cruise that had not been used before, I thought it would be nice to have a master list somewhere of all the named cruises. Most of the info is on LCT, but scattered about in different forums.
So, while I was recovering from some surgery earlier this year, I endeavored to create such a list. It was quite challenging pulling the info together – in the process, I bet I read every single post on LCT since the very beginning!
I decided it would be fun not only to have all the acronyms, but also pictures of the pins and the teapots. So, I have included those that I was able to find. In a few instances, I was not able to find the pins on LCT, so Julie took a photo of the pins and I cropped those to include in the spreadsheet.
The “official” list with pins starts in 2007, but I have included what I could find from the earlier years (Ngaire says any names before 2007 are fair game to use again). There were also a few more recent cruises that were named, but then cancelled, so those were not included.
There is some missing data – a few places I was not able to find what the acronym stood for, couldn’t find a couple of the teapots, etc. I am hoping you LCTers out there can help me fill in the blanks! If you can help me out, please send me a private message with the info.
I hope to keep this updated as we have new naming contests and new pins are debuted!
It was really kind of fun - I couldn’t believe how cute all of these pins were, and the teapots too!
The first link below will take you the document with all of the information including the pictures of the pins and teapots.
The second link is an alphabetical list of all cruise acronyms along with the year they were used. This should be a little easier to check to see if a name has been used before.
