* Back for a Third Year
Princess Cruises today announced they would return to Japan for a third annual season in the summer of 2015, and they will again operate it with the refurbished Diamond Princess, complete with features customized for the Japanese source market.

* Enough to Make a Vegan Faint
No matter how wonderful the dining is on Holland America, there are times at lunch when you just want a good burger and fries. That’s why their Grill by the Lido pool is always so popular. (If the truth be known, from time to time, there’s even a vegetarian seen in that line.)
But now the Lido Grill is undergoing a rebranding on all 15 HAL ships, and the menu is being upgraded, and the Grill will become even more popular.
