  18. KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has issued a permit for a cruise ship dock in southeast Alaska, but the dock's opening date is unclear. Ketchikan Daily News reported Thursday that the permit was issued Tuesday for the 1,300-foot cruise ship dock in Ward Cove, about 300 miles south of Juneau. Agency officials say the permit was issued to Power Systems & Supplies. Officials say the project is part of a larger plan to revamp the site of a former pulp mill into a welcoming center, museum and shopping attraction. Partners say months of construction is needed before a project-completion date can be estimated.

  20. Port Milwaukee plans to develop an additional docking site for passenger cruise ships as the city’s cruise business continues to grow. The port’s third dock would be located in the city’s Harbor District, near the future site of Komatsu Mining Corp.’s new headquarters, said port director Adam Schlicht in an interview with BizTimes Milwaukee. The dock would be used specifically for Viking Cruises, which recently announced plans to make approximately 20 port calls and bring 8,000 tourists to Milwaukee annually, starting in 2022. Port Milwaukee’s 470-acre waterfront includes two existing cruise ship facilities, Pier Wisconsin Cruise Dock at Discovery World and the Lake Express ferry’s South Shore Cruise Dock. Those sites have gotten busier in recent years with ships like the Pearl Mist and The Hamburg making multiple turnaround stops in Milwaukee during the season. The 2019 season wrapped in October with 10 passenger ship visits, bringing 3,214 visitors to the area. This year, cruise companies are expected to bring 4,000 visitors to Milwaukee with 14 vessel visits. “So potentially by 2022, we’re talking 12,000 or more passengers on cruise ships both with new service on Viking and our legacy Great Lakes customers,” Schlicht said. With an additional dock, Port Milwaukee would be one of the only Great Lakes ports offering three separate cruise docks, he said. And it would the city a competitive edge over other ports as it tries to attract more business, allowing Milwaukee to house up to three ships at once as opposed to one or two. That’s why Schlicht doesn’t anticipate Viking’s entry into the Great Lakes market will pose a threat to smaller cruise companies that regularly dock in Milwaukee. “We’re ready for the challenge,” he said, adding that the city has been negotiating for several years with both Viking and cruise lines already using the port. As plans for the third dock develop, the city will “continue looking at any investment opportunities” from both the public and private sector, said Schlicht. “We don’t exactly know yet how that will work out, but with Viking’s announcement we are fully empowered to figure out that solution.” By Maredithe Meyer, BizTimes.com Re-posted on CruiseCrazies.com - Cruise News, Articles, Forums, Packing List, Ship Tracker, and more For more cruise news and articles go to https://www.cruisecrazies.com View full article

  24. Oh what the heck, I’ll take the $240,000 owner’s suite. If I could afford a luxury world cruise, why not go for it all!
  25. I’m glad to hear the man was okay. It’s fortunate that the cruise lines can rely on airlifts to transport passengers in distress. It also stresses the importance of travel insurance with med evac included. Medical evacuation from ship to shore can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, so be sure to consider a plan with good med evac coverage.🙂
  26. MSC has been growing in popularity over the last few years, thanks to the Seaside arriving in the US and their attractive pricing. But 6,761 passengers? How big is big enough? Really, bigger isn’t always better.
  27. I give these crew members a lot of credit. I can’t imagine being far away from home for months at a time without seeing my family. Crew that I’ve spoken with rely on FaceTime and Skype to keep in touch. The waitress that said Sleeping Pills? How does she wake up and go to work without being groggy? I would tell her to replace them with an eye mask and earplugs.🙂
  28. That was the biggest complaint in all the reviews I read about the Queen Mary docked as a hotel in Long Beach - the rust! Even after the money poured in to restore it, it looks like they still have a lot of work to do to make it appealing for the average hotel guest.
