It’s Valentines Day and our thoughts turn to love, of course. So on this Valentine’s Day, there’s only one cruise line we think about. Princess Cruises, home of the Love Boat. And Princess has pioneered a lot of things when it comes to cruises, not the least of which is expressing love by tying the knot at sea.
Holland America’s Half Moon Cay turns 15 this year. This private Bahamanian island is widely considered to be among the best private beach islands that cruise lines use today, and this year Holland America is upping their game by offering guests the biggest private island upgrade yet, a beach villa.
Royal Caribbean is finally cutting steel for its latest class of ships, previously known as Project Sunshine, and they are promising the ship to be a quantum leap forward, as they’ve named the new ship to be the Quantum of the Seas.
Here at the office, we relish the thought of being completely off the grid. Disconnected, and unable to be reached is a dream for many people that never seems to pan out in reality. The call of the cell phone and internet can just be too alluring, too necessary and too familiar to stay offline for many. And although cruises offer the ability to log on, the prices can be very high – and it can keep connectivity down to a bare minimum. However, Regent is looking to change that, believe it or not.
The rumors are true, and Royal Caribbean made it official. Look for another Oasis of the Seas type ship to hit the waters in 2016. The cruise line made the announcement last week in St. Nazaire, France where the ship will be built. It’s going to be an exciting few years for the cruise line too, as the list of new ships for Royal Caribbean seems to be growing pretty rapidly!
The countdown to the new Royal Princess is on, and this week, Princess reveals what’s new and updated for the kids on board. After all, a great vacation for the families isn’t quite the same without great activities and events for kids to enjoy too! There’s a whole host of new features for the little ones on the Royal Princess. This time, the ship was designed with them in mind!
The Serenade of the Seas is back on the seas! Having completed is 29 million dollar renovation this month, the ship is back and sailing and there are a whole host of new reasons to take this classic Royal Caribbean ship out for a spin. A lot of times, people think newer and flashier is the way to go, but Royal Caribbean is taking steps to make every ship its best ship, and the Serenade is no exception. Here are five good reasons to sail on the Serenade in the next 12 months.
Taking a family vacation on a cruise is a great idea for people of all ages. Unfortunately, sometimes, people just need to get away from the kids. Dropping them off at the kids program is a start, but sometimes being away from kids, means being away from kids, not just your own. Princess pioneered an adults-only area on a family friendly ship, with the Sanctuary.
Cruises are great vacations for families, this is something that pretty much everyone can agree on. But the question is what cruise line is best for families? The truth is that there are a lot of choices out there for this, and pretty much every major cruise line has something great that the family can agree on, but according to one influential travel website, one cruise line – Royal Caribbean – stands out.
Cruise ships are as much museums of modern art as they are anything else these days, and that is very much apparent in the new Celebrity Reflection, which finally set sail from US waters last week. As part of our continuing coverage on the ship, we wanted to share about the fantastic artwork onboard.
