 Chanson gets my vote.  Could we have a description of the new ship please?

Will it be similar as the ones you now have with sliding doors or windowed which open.

I'm not sure if one were on a river ship or planning on going on one, and the companies' ship names were of a musical nature, such as Grand Circle Travel, I wouldn't be thinking of "concertina wire" as around East Berlin in 1961.  If I were going to be in Europe on this river ship named Concertina, I would be thinking of that little "squeeze box" that looks like a very tiny accordian, with the sound between a harmonica and accordion that plays quaint songs from that country, or polka or waltz music with that lively beat that is contagious to some who like that kind of music, which makes me want to think of lively fun,  hook your arms together, sway side to side, and sing along. 

I vote for Concertina.

Well, I'm really going against the grain, but I like the sound of Cadence. At first glance it is easier to pronounce, spell, and remember!
