Norwegian Cruise Line hasn’t even launched the New York themed Norwegian Breakaway on the high seas yet, but they can’t seem to keep a lid on the excitement that they’re building from the Norwegian Getaway.

See It Now: The Colosseum

November 30, 2012 | Roger

There is a lot of endangered beauty in this world. And much of it is worth experiencing before its too late. The Colosseum fits this bill perfectly.

November 29, 2012 | Roger

The people who built the Houston Bayport Cruise Terminal have got to be breathing a sigh of relief these days. The $100 million terminal was built in 2008 to host no ships whatsoever.

And Aulani really works to create an authentic Hawaiian experience for its guests while still maintaining the excellent standards that Disney hotels and resorts have come to be known for.
