Saint Laurent & Canadian Empress - Eisenhower Lock am June 19, 2015 - twitter SeawayNNY

It’s unusual to see two passenger ships together on the St Lawrence Seaway, but as the 210-berth Saint Laurent waits to be released from the Eisenhower Lock, the 64-berth Canadian Empress prepares to make an unscheduled call at Cornwall, Ontario.

In news that was a little different, last week saw the latest Great Lakes cruise ship, the 210-berth Saint Laurent, involved in an incident in a lock in the St Lawrence Seaway that saw her sustain a 10-foot gash to her bow and will cause the loss of two cruises while she is repaired. Elsewhere, we have a look at Carnival’s biggest new orders, all intended for Costa Group brands, as they compare to Royal Caribbean’s Oasis class ships. And finally, Cruiseco are offering more fly/cruise opportunities on their river cruise operations in Southeast Asia, where the newly-built 56-berth Cruiseco Explorer sails the Irrawaddy and Chindwin Rivers and the 60-berth Cruiseco Adventurer the Mekong.
