A "Sensational" Rescue

Even though Carnival Cruise Line isn't carrying passengers at the moment, it's ships are still willing to assist fellow seamen when in distress. 

Carnival Sensation came to the assistance of a small boat with 24 people aboard (including two children) on Saturday morning (October 17) about 37 miles east of Palm Beach, Florida. The first provided supplies and then took the people aboard when the boat began taking on water.

Rotterdam Passing Milestones

Holland America's new Rotterdam has marked a couple of important events in its construction at Fincantieri's Marghera yard. The first was the flooding of the dry dock last week which was held in conjunction with the coin ceremony where two ceremonial coins were welded to the ship's hull on an outside deck. This week, the ship was towed to the finishing dock where interior construction will continue, and where Rotterdam VII will remain until it goes on sea trials early next year.
