- Silver Cloud experienced a fuel pump failure on its inaugural expedition cruise and it had to be canceled. The next cruise is expected to operate as scheduled on December 1.
- Delivery of MSC Seaside is only about a week away. It has returned from its third sea trial, and in the video below we have a short interview with MSC Cruises' executive chairman Pierfrancesco Vago where he talks about the unusual design of MSC Seaside. The interview was shot aboard the ship during the sea trial. Showing a little more of the unfinished ship is an interview with Gary Glading, MSC's Head of Entertainment, who discusses the array of entertainment options that will be available aboard MSC Seaside. In the video he shows you the venues which are still being completed.
