Norwegian Escape Returns to Port Canaveral

Norwegian Escape returned to Port Canaveral on Saturday as she started her winter schedule of seven-night Caribbean cruises. With Escape’s return, Port Canaveral is now home to 13 cruise ships, the most it’s ever had homeported at once.

Norwegian Escape was homeported in Port Canaveral last winter before running aground in the Dominican Republic. The ship underwent repairs in Port Canaveral before heading to Europe for the summer season.

Other ships homeported in Port Canaveral this winter include Wonder of the Seas, Mardi Gras, Disney Wish, and MSC Meraviglia.

Turtle-Shaped Terayacht Might Come to Fruition Off Saudi Arabia Coast

The new largest floating structure ever built may come to fruition off the coast of Saudi Arabia.

Designers have come up with a terayacht — yes, TERAyacht — called Pangeos, named after the supercontinent Pangea.

The “floating city” is shaped like a sea turtle, and would feature space for hotels, malls, parks, and even ports for smaller ships and aircraft. The structure would be 1,800 feet long and 2,000 feet wide, and be able to move at a turtle’s pace of five knots.

There’s a crowdfunding initiative currently happening for the project, with the designers hoping to begin construction in 2033.

And we know you’re wondering about the estimated cost of this terayacht: a cool $8 billion.
