From Niagara This Week:
The two catamarans that will ferry passengers to the foot of the Horseshoe Falls now have names.
Hornblower Niagara Cruises revealed the names Monday. The company had actually selected the names in December of last year following an international contest to the name the new boats. The names were then submitted to Transport Canada to ensure they were not already registered and for final registration approval.
The first winning name, Niagara Wonder, was one of many names submitted by Lina Muraca’s kindergarten class at Sacred Heart Catholic Elementary School in Chippawa. Mr. Dharmesh Rami of Hyderabad, India submitted the name Niagara Thunder. The winning names were among thousands submitted from all over the world.
