I quite like the name, meaning blue skies, don't we all hope for them whether cruising or at home.
Yes I have seen the article and I agree with you about the name, felt the same about "Ventura" but I guess we all have to remember that P&O as we know it no longer exists more's the pity. Carnival have spoilt the image and are gradually spoiling what was once a premier cruise line, but this is only in my humble opinion of course.
Why care? As Shakespeare said in R and J "whats in a name?".
To take up Turnbull's theme, more to the point is will we like the ship? Will Carnival have listened to the flood of complaints about Ventura (not the name!) and make sufficient changes to ensure that we who have P&O's future at heart will continue to cruise with them and not seek our relaxation and pleasure elsewhere? Surely there are enough of us to to tell them what we love about their ships and what we so dislike about Ventura!
