The Cruise Examiner: So You’ve Won A Free Cruise, Have You? – Other Cruise News: Carnival Vista’s SkyRide

THE CRUISE EXAMINER at Cybercruises.com by Kevin Griffin

The Cruise Examiner for 23rd February 2015

Carnival SkyrideThis week, as a result of a message from a reader, we have a look at the third-party travel operators who deal in selling products by offering “free cruises” as bait. Primarily concentrated on 2-night sailings out of Florida, these companies have created a bad taste for many consumers. As some would say, there is no such thing as a free cruise. And with Royal Caribbean’s Quantum and Anthem of the Seas stealing the spotlight with their North Star capsules, we look at Carnival’s SkyRide, a suspended outdoor cycling trip around the top of the new Carnival Vista.

MACS Introduces New Multi-Purpose Cargo-Passenger Service to the North Atlantic In April – Between the UK, Continent and Gulf of Mexico

German-based shipping line MACS is to introduce a new multi-purpose cargo-passenger service between Immingham in the UK, Antwerp and Bremen/Brake in Europe, Altamira in Mexico and New Orleans, Houston and Port Arthur in the United States. The full round voyage is 60 days, Antwerp to Houston is 25 days via Gulf ports and Houston to Immingham is 26 days via other ports.

Two ships, the 31,916-ton Amber Lagoon (built 1997) and 33,722-ton Purple Beach (built 1998) will serve this trade. Equipped with one twin-bedded cabin each, both vessels also feature an outside swimming pool.

Bookings will be accepted for any month of the year and passengers need to be flexible as departure dates can vary. Non-US and Canadian citizens need full US B1/B2 visas as cargo ships are not included in the visa waiver program (an ESTA is therefore not sufficient).

For further details of voyages between Europe and North America and to make bookings please call Miri Lopusna at The Cruise People Ltd in London on 020 7723 2450 or e-mail cruisepeopleltd@aol.com.
