    A new entry into the cruise industry has already been renamed:https://gcaptain.com/rebranded-virgi...Captain.com%29
    Will this be some exiting new concept or more same ol' same ol'?

      More security for cruise passengers: http://www.marinelog.com/index.php?o...ing&Itemid=229
      Will that actually enhance your security, or just add red tape to the process of booking and boarding??

          WAOW. Not much space left over on the sides there - surely a tight fit.

          Quite impressing. I nearly can't believe that this worked out without any scratch and i they will really decide to do it as regulat "event".

        A cruise ship in the class favoured by many here on CVF has got into trouble in one of the remotest parts on Indonesia: https://www.theguardian.com/environm...st-coral-reefs

          Thanks for that link ombugge - I had been about to post the one from World Maritime News which I came across last night:
          http://worldmaritimenews.com/archive...donesian-reef/
          (Note the line about the ship having been "refloated on the next high tide", which doesn't tally with ' "They should've waited for high tide' to refloat the vessel." in the Guardian article.)

          Here also is a report from another British newspaper (incidently the one which has for years regularly carried advertisement and travel promotion features on NC's offerings):
          http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017...ne-indonesian/
          It also contains a link to the cruise critic site: http://www.cruisecritic.co.uk/news/news.cfm?ID=7608

                Better book early if you want to be the first to experience a cruise on a X-Bow Cruise ship in the Antarctic: http://www.auroraexpeditions.com.au/...xpedition-ship

                  I would like to see what happens when this ship hits the seas of the Drake passage....does the bow deflect or encourage submersion???

                  There are more than 100 vessels with X-Bow already sailing the world's oceans. The design has proven very efficient and create a more comfortable ride in rough seas: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aA79tD415yg

                  Interesting article..... the images from the ship in particular.

                  The ship - the MSC Mergalalaallavillagallia - (too difficult to remember the name).... is massive indeed, almost like a super-clean shopping mall on a keel. Such a far cry from the ships decades ago, like the Norway.

                    Another new player in the luxury cruise business, but not aiming at the Polar regions: http://gcaptain.com/ritz-carlton-lau...Captain.com%29
                    I don't see anything about where these ships will be built though. (Within reach for Norwegian yards???)
