Cruise Passengers Welcome on m.v. Explorer’s Semester At Sea – Other Cruise News: Two Expedition Ships Carry New Colours – Prince Philip Turns 90

And now for something totally different. We look at two cruises that are being offered to the public on Semester at Sea’s 24,318-ton world cruiser m.v. Explorer, which offers two world cruises a year as well as a number of shorter enrichment voyages, on which passengers may book as well as university students. And we look at two expedition ships, the Orion II and Hanseatic, which both left port on Friday under new colours. Finally, Prince Philip turned 90 on Friday and we have a look back at his maritime background, which has included yet another kind of cruising.
