I would have gone for the Moby Dick reference, but it looks like that is already taken- so I will go for the mermaid on the logo. Mermaids are the tricksters that lure desparate mariners into the deep cold sea to meet thier doom.

And Starbucks is everywhere! So even when your ship stops in port overseas you can get a cup of joe.
