  5. 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.

  7. 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

  13. A cruise ship is an unusual work environment, keeping employees away from their homes for months at a time. Some workers sign contracts that have them working on their ship every day for over six months. That means cruise-ship workers need to be thoughtful about what they pack, since they might not have the opportunity to return home for an essential item for over six months. Six former cruise-ship workers told Business Insider what they couldn't live without during their contracts. They worked for Carnival Cruise Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Princess Cruises, and American Cruise Lines. Four asked for anonymity due to a fear of reprisal from their former employers. Their identities are known to Business Insider. Here's what they said. Makeup remover Loic Venance/Getty Images "Being able to wash your face at the end of a 16-hour day just felt so good," said Abigail Segner, a former regional training manager for American Cruise Lines. Clean and comfortable socks Roslan Rahman/AFP/Getty Images Having good socks was essential because her job required her to move a lot, Segner said. Good shoes Matias J. Ocner/Miami Herald/TNS via Getty Images Like Segner, a former photographer for Norwegian Cruise Line said she was on her feet a lot, so it was important to have shoes that were comfortable and easy to put on. Items that remind you of home Anonymous Princess Cruises employee "You are away for so long and it gets lonely," the former Norwegian photographer said. Sleeping pills Alan Diaz/Associated Press "You have roommates walking in and out all night because their schedule is different than yours," said Kapri Hockaday, a former waitress for American Cruise Lines. Friends Ted S. Warren/Associated Press "If you're not good at making friends or you don't have people to hang out with, it can be very isolating because you're thousands miles away from your family and friends," said a former bar server for Norwegian Cruise Line. A cell phone Carlos Barria/Reuters "If you can't talk to your friends or your family once in a while and say, 'Oh my god, this is what's going on then,' then what?" said a former learning and development manager for Princess Cruises. A pillow from home Don Ryan/Associated Press A former Carnival Cruise Line youth staff worker said she would not have been able to sleep as well if she didn't bring a pillow from home. "I don't think the pillows on the ship were that comfortable," she said.
