Symphony of the Seas Takes Flight

You probably won't see anything like it anywhere else, especially on any other cruise ship, but Symphony of the Seas has a show that is getting rave reviews from passengers who saw it in Europe, and now it is here for US audiences.

“Flight: Dare to Dream” takes the audience through the history of flight - in reverse order - by starting with landing on Mars and working back to the International Space Station, landing on the moon, and eventually back to the Wright Brothers first flight.

This behind-the-scenes video gives you a peek at how the show was produced and some of its highlights.

Look Who Ann Sheridan Ran Into

With the APEC summit wrapping up, the Carnival Australia ships that have been providing accommodation for the delegates in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, the ships began departing today.

As the first departed, Pacific Explorer and Pacific Jewel and Princess Cruises' Sea Princess each sounded their whistles seven times to achieve the equivalent of a 21-gun salute that echoed across the city.
