Carnival Cruise Line has reached a return to service milestone with its two millionth guest since the company returned to service last July.
On Thursday, the festivities were held in Port Canaveral aboard Carnival Freedom when the Gibbs family from Ocala, Fla. embarked and were given some gifts.
The restart hasn’t been without challenges with protocols and staffing, however, through it all, Carnival has managed to get all 23 ships sailing. Carnival Freedom sails four-and five-night Bahamas cruises from Central Florida.
And they filed for bankruptcy and then started over with a new cruise line.
That’s what the owners of the Genting Cruise Line did.
Resorts World Cruises will launch from Marina Bay in Singapore with the Genting Dream next month.
At the start, the line will operate short two and three-night cruises to nowhere with hopes of expanding into larger itineraries by the fall.
After filing for bankruptcy in January, Genting shut down Crystal Cruises, Star Cruises, and Dream Cruises, while simultaneously laying off 1000s of workers and walking away from unpaid bills.
If the name Resorts World sounds familiar, it’s in the Genting Honk Kong portfolio, the owner of the Bimini Beach Club in THE BAHAMAS, and a new hotel in Vegas.
MSC has detailed its upcoming ship World Europa ahead of its December debut.
The ship will feature a seven-deck outdoor space, The Venom Drop which is coined to be the longest dry slide at sea, and new infinite verandah cabins like the Celebrity Edge-class.
This will also be the first LNG-powered cruise ship in the MSC fleet.
If you want to sail this beauty, you’ll have to travel. It debuts on its inaugural sailing from K-TAR to Dubai in late December.
