Default My Theory about Destiny class names

Paul, my theory is this: there was no real contest because they already had the three names for their forthcoming ships (Destiny 1996), (Triumph 1999) & (Victory 2000). This "contest" was only to gather email, address, etc. for future mailings. The ship names came from someone within Carnival who loves the music group "The Jacksons". Here's why: three of their albums were Destiny 1978, Triumph 1980 & Victory 1984. Same order of release. Coincidence?
