Cruise News Daily Headlines for November 14, 2014

We’re closing out the week with five smaller stories that you probably haven’t heard about, but we hope our subscribers will find them interesting:

+ Just in time for the holidays
Your shopping worries are over, at least for the Princess passengers on your gift list.

+ Keeping it British
When you’re naming a ship with the name of Britannia, it just wouldn’t do to use champagne, which must be from France, so P&O cruises has chosen a British sparkling wine with which to name the ship.

+ Cuba cruise surge continuing
The island nation of Cuba has been trying to rebuild their cruise industry (for port calls) since 2006, and this year they are experiencing a boom.

+ The perils of celebrity partnerships
Norwegian Cruise Line is learning the perils of having celebrity partnerships today as their “master baker” Buddy Valastro went to court in a first appearance on DWI charges in New York.

+ Quantum of the Seas named
Actress Kristin Chenoweth named Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas at Cape Liberty Cruiseport tonight in New York Harbor.

The complete articles appeared in the e-mail edition of Cruise News Daily delivered to our subscribers.
