Cuba by Silversea

Next month Silversea will begin their first series of cruises to Cuba, and unlike most lines cruising to Cuba, Silversea will take passengers beyond Havana to other Cuban ports.

Think of It as a Specialty Restaurant That Comes to You

When passengers aboard Carnival Cruise Line awoke yesterday, a hangover from New Year's Eve was only the first headache they had. The second happened when they ordered room service. Carnival now charges for everything from room service, except a continental breakfast.

At just about the point where everyone has realized they have to routinely include an amount in their cruise budget for specialty restaurants, Carnival customers are going to have to include an amount for room service.

Carnival Concentrates on California

If California hadn't thought about Carnival Cruise Line before, they are now, and will be for at least the next month.

It kicked off with Carnival's big, flower-covered float rolling down Colorado Blvd in Pasadena, a replica of Carnival Panorama, with representations of the “fun” things the ship will offer: a band playing “Uptown Funk,” a deck party, even people doing flips on the trampoline representing the ship's trampoline park. Of course it came with a huge “Choose Fun” bumper sticker (made out of flowers) stuck to the float's rear bumper.
