Cruise News Daily Headlines for March 27, 2014

* Carnival Readying Home for Cat in the Hat
Next month Carnival Freedom will enter drydock to receive all the Fun Ship 2.0 enhancements it can hold along with the upgrades necessary for the complete Seuss at Sea program. Green eggs and ham are so close you can smell them!
   The work will be done at the Grand Bahama Shipyard in Freeport from April 19 to May 3.

* Royal Caribbean Pricing Changes
Royal Caribbean made two little changes the other day that went under most people’s radar. They won’t cost you money, and actually may save you some, but they are important to be aware of. The changes apply to all three RCCL brands: Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Club Cruises.

* Saving Lives in the Florida Straits
Carnival Ecstasy quite possibly may have saved 41 lives in the Florida Straits on Tuesday night. The bridge spotted a small unseaworthy boat that was grossly overloaded with 41 Cuban nationals that was taking on water. The Carnival captain altered Ecstasy’s course to render assistance, and took the 41 people aboard. It was found that the boat had no life saving or navigation equipment aboard.
