10 Reasons Why Carnival Triumph Is The Cruise For You! http://www.tyustours.com/log/post_1255893223_5232494_21812.htm <img src="http://content.onlineagency.com/sites/21812/images/carnival_triumph_jpg_lf640.jpg" height="377" width="640" hspace="5" vspace="5" alt="" align="right" border="0"><p><br> <font color="000000" face="sans-serif" size="2"><span style="font-size:18px"><span style="font-family:tahoma,geneva,sans-serif"><strong>10 Reasons Why Carnival Triumph Is The Cruise For You!</strong></span></span><br /><br> <br /><br> By Chris Gray Faust, Senior Editor<br /><br> <br /><br> </font><span style="font-family:tahoma,geneva,sans-serif"><span style="font-size: 18px"><strong><font color="000000">Carnival Triumph will float your boat if</font></strong></span></span><font color="000000" face="sans-serif" size="2"><span style="font-size:18px"><span style="font-family:tahoma,geneva,sans-serif">. </span></span><br /><br> <br /><br> <span style="font-size:14px"><span style="font-family: tahoma,geneva,sans-serif">1. You have limited vacation time.<br /><br> Based in Galveston for 2015 and New Orleans for 2016, Carnival Triumph specializes in four- and five-night cruises to Mexico&#39s Yucatan Peninsula. That&#39s just enough time to have some fun without blowing your entire vacation budget.<br /><br> <br /><br> 2. You have a big family.<br /><br> With a similar number of inside, oceanview and balcony cabins, Carnival Triumph has a room for every budget, which makes it perfect for planning a family reunion or milestone birthday celebration. Another bonus: Even the inside cabins are larger than those on other cruise lines, coming in at an impressive 185 square feet.<br /><br> <br /><br> 3. You love tropical drinks.<br /><br> Sure, all cruise lines have daiquiris and margaritas. But Carnival has raised the bar with colorful concoctions such as Kiss on the Lips (peach schnapps, mango and grenadine), the Emerald Mine (blue Curacao, vodka, coconut cream, pineapple juice and orange juice) and the decadent Mocha Chocolate Getaway (Irish cream, dark rum, butterscotch schnapps, Kahlua and ice cream). Best of all, most drinks are under $10 (and thus eligible for the Cheers all-inclusive drinks package). For those who prefer their concoctions shaken, not frozen, the Alchemy Bar serves up some tasty doozies, such as the Cucumber Sunrise, a vodka drink with watermelon liqueur.<br /><br> A tropical drink on a Carnival cruise.<br /><br> <br /><br> 4. You like to boogie.<br /><br> There&#39s music all hours of the day on Carnival Triumph, from the boisterous party tunes at the pool to karaoke competitions in the Oxford Lounge and Motown trivia nights in the Capitol Lounge. And don&#39t forget the Hollywood Nightclub, which rotates between theme sets (country, Michael Jackson, &#3970s/&#3980s) and current dance faves.<br /><br> <br /><br> 5. You want to go to Mexico.<br /><br> Through 2016, Carnival Triumph will be taking most of its trips to Cozumel and Progreso, both on Mexico&#39s Yucatan peninsula. Long known for its beach-y fun, Cozumel has dozens of shore excursions available, from snorkeling to dolphin encounters and popular salsa classes. Located near Merida, Progreso gives you access to major Mayan ruins as well as refreshing cenotes (underground rivers). And of course, both offer plenty of opportunities to buy tequila.<br /><br> <br /><br> 6. Your kids love Dr. Seuss.<br /><br> Carnival Triumph was one of the line&#39s first ships to get Seuss at Sea -- and the program has been a clear hit with the younger set. Don&#39t miss the Seuss-A-Palooza parade, where the Cat in the Hat leads chanting children through the ship. If your kids have ever begged you for green eggs and ham, they can try it at the Seuss character breakfast (for an extra charge).<br /><br> <br /><br> 7. You love burgers and tacos.<br /><br> While the meals in Carnival&#39s main dining room rate high on the tasty meter, you&#39ll be tempted by Triumph&#39s double threat on the pool deck: Guy&#39s Burger Joint and the BlueIguana Cantina. Whether you go for a burrito or a burger, you can fix it up to your liking each venue has a toppings bar. Best of all, BlueIguana is open for breakfast so you can start your day with arepas and huevos rancheros. Now that&#39s an eye-opener!<br /><br> <br /><br> 8. You like friendly waiters.<br /><br> Carnival waiters go out of their way to know your name by the first night -- and remember it for the rest of your cruise. Not only that, but many of them can sing and dance, as evidenced by the nightly floor shows. Go ahead, wave your napkin!<br /><br> <br /><br> 9. You&#39re a fan of comedy clubs.<br /><br> The Punchliner Comedy Club, a partnership with George Lopez, is one of the most popular spots on Carnival Triumph, so go early if you want a seat. At least two comedians are onboard every cruise, performing several shows on sea nights. The later shows are adults-only don&#39t go if you&#39re easily offended.<br /><br> <br /><br> 10. You like old-school song and dance.<br /><br> Although many Carnival ships have switched over to the glitzy LED screens for nightly entertainment, Triumph still has its own full band, dancers and singers.<br /><br> <br /><br> <strong>Carnival Triumph might not be for you if ..</strong>.<br /><br> You like peace and quiet.<br /><br> <br /><br> Something is happening all the time on Triumph, and there aren&#39t a lot of spaces onboard that aren&#39t filled with people having fun. In the summer, up to 1,200 children are onboard, with many of them congregating at the pool. Even your cabin could be noisy, depending on your neighbors.<br /><br> <br /><br> You want things &quotfancy.&quot<br /><br> Carnival Triumph is as unpretentious as they come, with classic food choices in the dining room and a laid-back attitude throughout the ship. Fellow passengers are likely to hoot and holler at the hairy chest contest or sing along exuberantly to &quotSweet Caroline&quot in the piano bar. If you must have an upscale suite and expect impeccable dress on formal night, you might be better off on another cruise line.<br /><br> <br /><br> <strong>Tyus Tours &amp Travel has an Olde School Cruise sailing from New Orleans aboard the Carnival Triumph, November 12, 2016. For a 5 day Western Caribbean Cruise. Cabins are still available.

Anthem Of The Seas Update http://www.tyustours.com/log/post_1240038690_5232494_21812.htm <img src="http://content.onlineagency.com/sites/21812/images/royalcaribbeanlogo.png" height="60" width="260" hspace="5" vspace="5" alt="" align="right" border="0"><p><br> Last week <i>Anthem of the Seas</i> encountered a storm that was dramatically stronger than all official weather forecasts. U.S. Coast Guard and other investigators have relayed information to us that our captain followed proper procedure in managing the ship in the storm. They praised him for making decisions that kept our guests and crew safe, kept the ship seaworthy and led to only four minor injuries in a ship with more than 6,000 people on board. The ship passed all safety inspections. All but a few minor repairs have been completed. <i>Anthem</i> is back at sea.</p><br><p><br> The severity of the storm far exceeded forecasts, but ultimately it is Royal Caribbean&nbsp responsibility to avoid these possibilities &ndash and this event has provided us with an important learning opportunity. We can do better, and we will. These are the steps we are taking.</p><br><p><br> We&#39ve updated our storm avoidance policy and added additional resources at our headquarters to provide more data and guidance to support our captains. Senior marine executives and, when necessary, meteorologists will be involved in decisions about when, where and whether to sail when storms are forecast.</p><br><p><br> There are a handful of remaining minor issues that require attention including replacing outdoor ceiling paneling by the SeaPlex, repairing some balcony partitions and replacing broken furniture. North Star, RipCord by iFLY, FlowRider and other favorite experiences are fully operational.</p><br><p><br> For those of you with resversations on upcoming sailings, rest assured that <i>Anthem of the Seas</i> is ready to deliver the Royal Caribbean experience that you expect from them.</p><br>

8 Thanksgiving Day Cruises http://www.tyustours.com/log/post_1220625405_5232494_21812.htm <img src="http://content.onlineagency.com/sites/21812/images/cruises_thanksgiving.jpg" height="355" width="630" hspace="5" vspace="5" alt="" align="right" border="0"><p><br> Next, Thanksgiving, skip the cooking, cleaning, and house full of relatives &mdash sail off into the sunset on a fun-filled cruise. Many cruise lines are sprinkling in Turkey Day festivities and hearty feasts served in exotic locales. Here are eight top Thanksgiving cruise options.</p><br><p><br> &nbsp<strong>MSC Cruises Caribbean</strong><strong>Voyage</strong></p><br><p><br> The MSC Divina homeports in Miami and sails on a seven-night cruise to Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, and the Bahamas beginning Nov. 21. Thanksgiving Day is spent at sea with festive entertainment, a traditional Turkey dinner and football games on large screens in the sports bar and pool. Kids can join Turkey Day-themed cooking classes, costume parades, and shows. There will also be a party, scavenger hunt and flash mob.</p><br><p><br> <strong>Southern Sailings with <a href="http://www.travelpulse.com/suppliers/cruise/american-cruise-lines.html">American Cruise Lines</a></strong></p><br><p><br> American Cruise Lines has partnered with a Connecticut food bank and $50 of every Thanksgiving cruise ticket helps fight hunger. These cruises include a seven-night Intracoastal Waterway journey between Charleston and Jacksonville, and the &ldquoGreat Rivers of Florida&rdquo cruise that follows a very unique route round-trip from Jacksonville. Ships will be decked out for Thanksgiving and guests can savor traditional turkey dinners. Several sailing dates are available depending on the itinerary.</p><br><p><br> <strong>Bahamas Break with <a href="http://www.travelpulse.com/suppliers/cruise/norwegian-cruise-line.html">Norwegian Cruise Line</a></strong></p><br><p><br> Hop aboard the Norwegian Sky for a four-night Thanksgiving getaway from Miami to three islands in the Bahamas.

Island Windjammers does cruising a little differently with a casual itinerary, swimming or snorkeling near the ship and soaking in some rays on the top deck. Sagitta sets sail Nov. 22 on a six-night cruise from St. Maarten and will visit a selection of islands that may include Anguilla, Nevis, St. Barths, St.Kitts and Tintamarre.

SAILING THE WORLD'S RIVERS! PART II-EUROPE RIVER CRUISES! http://www.tyustours.com/log/post_1215488055_5232494_21812.htm <img src="http://content.onlineagency.com/sites/21812/images/avalonwaterways_bedfacingawindow2.jpg" height="376" width="640" hspace="5" vspace="5" alt="" align="right" border="0"><p><br> Whether it&#39s cruising on the Danube, Mississippi, Mekong or anywhere else in the world, river cruising is arguably one of the hottest vacation in travel.</p><br><p><br> <strong>What is river cruising? In Europe!</strong></p><br><p><br> River cruising has been an increasingly popular form of leisure travel in recent years. River cruises are one-week or longer, overnight passenger cruises on vessels that range in size from a small four-passenger canal barge to the largest passenger river vessel afloat, the 396-passenger <a href="http://www.rivercruiseadvisor.com/cruise-companies/avalon-waterways/victoria-jenna/">Victoria Jenna</a>, which operates on the Yangtze River in China.</p><br><p><br> European river cruising takes place in what is, at maximum, a 38-foot-by-410-foot vessel, dimensions dictated by the locks and bridges that the vessels must past through and under. European river cruisers generally range from between 100 and 200 passengers.</p><br><h2><br> Where do river cruises go?</h2><br><p><br> River cruises travel along many of the major rivers in the world. In Europe, the Danube River is second in length only to the Volga River in Russia. The Danube is one of the most popular rivers to cruise along, and many river cruises include the Danube as part of their itinerary.</p><br><p><br> The Main, Rhine, Moselle, Elbe, Rhone, Saone and Seine are also popular rivers in Europe for river cruising. Elsewhere in the world, the Amazon River in Peru and Brazil, the Nile River in Egypt, the Yangtze River in China and the Mekong River in Vietnam and Cambodia are also popular river cruise destinations.</p><br><h2><br> A Brief History</h2><br><p><br> In 1992, Europe&rsquos age-old maritime landscape changed dramatically. It was that year that the Main-Danube Canal opened, connecting the Continent&rsquos main arteries &mdash and along with them, all of Europe.</p><br><p><br> The completion of the canal spawned grand cruise itineraries from Amsterdam to Budapest &mdash and beyond. An engineering marvel, the 106-mile Main-Danube Canal permits modern-day vessels to travel from the North Sea to the Black Sea, opening up more than 2,200 miles of river and exposing today&rsquos travelers to life along the banks.</p><br><p><br> Tributaries and smaller rivers flow into the main arteries to provide additional opportunities not only to reach deep into the heart of the Continent but also to explore some of its more remote regions.</p><br><p><br> The opening of the canal also meant that no longer would travelers need to sit with their noses pressed against the windows of busses as they moved from one destination to the next. Instead, travelers admire the scenery from the ship&rsquos sun deck as they are transported along with their accommodations.</p><br><p><br> <strong><em>Tired of hopping in and out of motor coaches or checking out of hotels at 6 a.m. on traditional land tours?</em></strong><em>A river cruise offers the convenience and luxury of a deep-ocean cruise combined with the in-depth experience of a land tour and the personal freedom of a river cruise. Step aboard. Unpack once. Explore, and enjoy.</em></p><br><p><br> River cruising emerged to introduce an entirely new concept to Europe: that of floating hotels that journey between destinations. In its simplest form, a river cruiser is nothing more than a barge with a hotel on top.</p><br><h2><br> The Benefits of River Cruising.</h2><br><p><br> For many travelers, the slow chug along the river is just the right pace for getting the lay of the land. Sitting on the top deck of a ship under brilliant blue skies, you gaze on fabled landscapes dotted with castles, villages and vineyards. A flight of stairs down, and you have all the amenities of a modern hotel &mdash restaurants, bars, lounges, fitness facilities, spas, internet access and comfortable staterooms.</p><br><p><br> River cruises offer opportunities to step ashore in fairy tale towns and fabled cities. Immerse yourself in contemporary culture, and learn something about the history of the towns along the Continent&rsquos greatest rivers.</p><br><p><br> The season runs March through the end of December, beginning with <a href="http://www.rivercruiseadvisor.com/the-rivers/europe/tulip-time-cruises/">Tulip Time Cruises</a> in Benelux countries and ending with <a href="http://www.rivercruiseadvisor.com/the-rivers/europe/christmas-market-cruises/">Christmas Market Cruises</a> in Hungary, Austria, and Germany.</p><br><p><br> River cruising is perfect for those who want a relaxed grand tour of Europe and for cruisers who want to explore Europe beyond the coastline. River cruising presents the grandeur and charm of Europe as well as the indelible landscapes that inspired Europe&rsquos great artists. Few things in life can beat the views of Europe over the ripples of Continent&rsquos rivers.</p><br><p><br> To book your River Cruise visit www.tyustours.com or call 866-547-5362.</p><br><p><br> &nbsp</p><br>

Follow in the great wordsmith&#39s wake on a paddlewheel cruise down the mighty Mississip&#39, and stop in for ribs in Memphis, a blues concert in the Delta or some jazz in New Orleans. You can also find river cruises on northern rivers like the Ohio, and if carpe diem is what floats your boat, head west to the Columbia and Snake Rivers for some serious scenery.</p><br><p><br> Ready to roll on the river? Learn what sets a U.S. river cruise apart from every other kind of cruise.</p><br><h1><br> 9 Things to Know about U.S. River Cruises</h1><br><h3><br> It&#39s a boat, not a ship.</h3><br><p><br> Most cruisers, having been on larger oceangoing cruise vessels have been trained to call them ships. Boats, we&#39re often told, must be small enough to be carried on a ship. And so it&#39s easy to forget that even though you&#39re <em>cruising</em> on a river, the vessel you&#39re on is not a ship, but a boat. But that definition only applies if the vessel is built to sail the ocean. Vessels built specifically for lakes and rivers are called boats.</p><br><h3><br> There are both a captain and a pilot onboard U.S. river boats.</h3><br><p><br> Technically, there are two captains onboard, as all pilots also have their captain&#39s licenses. But because you cannot have two captains in command of a ship, one captain is the master and the other the pilot. Both stand watch (take command) for alternating six-hour shifts. When the boat is in a situation where both are needed (heavy fog or docking during bad weather, for instance), the master will concentrate on boat operations, while the pilot is in charge of navigation. On big ocean ships, local pilots come aboard to help the Captain dock in specific ports, but river pilots often do not have intimate knowledge of specific stretches of water. This is particularly true because rivers (their shapes, depths, etc.) change on an almost daily basis.</p><br><h3><br> Distances are in regular miles, not nautical miles.</h3><br><p><br> Don&#39t know what the captain of your mega-ship is trying to tell you when he says you&#39re 50 nautical miles from St. Thomas? Neither do we most of the time. Oh, we know it&#39s something like 1.15 regular miles to the nautical mile, but who can be bothered doing math when the waterslide is calling your name? So it&#39s nice to know that when the captain of your river boat says it&#39s 19 miles to Memphis, he means 19 plain old miles. Of course, we still have to do the math to find out how long it&#39s going to take to get there.</p><br><h3><br> You will encounter traffic.</h3><br><p><br> Sure you&#39ve seen other ships out on the big blue ocean, but they&#39re usually far away and too hard to make out. On the river, though, you can practically reach out and touch the barge you&#39re passing, and if you wave to the deckhand, he&#39s going to see you and wave back. Plus, you can be sure the experienced pilots in your boat&#39s wheelhouse are working the controls to make sure no one gets hit. Stand at the front of the ship during one of these encounters, and you&#39ll be able to see as the boat is maneuvered to avoid the traffic.</p><br><h3><br> Sometimes you have to stop.</h3><br><p><br> Traffic isn&#39t the only impediment on a river locks (and occasionally dams) also slow boats down and bring them to a complete stop. Not all rivers have locks, which generally keep waters at an even level, but many do, including the Mississippi, Ohio and Columbia Rivers.</p><br><h3><br> Weather matters.</h3><br><p><br> Forget about gray and rainy days hampering fun in the sun. Just as a hurricane can force an oceangoing cruise ship to change course, so too can bad weather -- in particular, heavy rain and droughts -- make or break a river itinerary. For instance, a drought along the Mississippi River in 2012 kept waters so low that riverboats couldn&#39t sail upriver, and <a href="http://www.cruisecritic.com/reviews/cruiseline.cfm?CruiseLineID=57">American Cruise Lines</a> and <a href="http://www.cruisecritic.com/reviews/review.cfm?ShipID=649">American Queen Steamboat Company</a> had to push some of their Upper Mississippi sailings onto the Ohio. In 2013, too much rain flooded the river, making it impossible for riverboats to get under bridges and forcing the closing of several locks. The result was the same as during the drought. Boats scheduled to sail the Upper Mississippi were diverted onto the Ohio.</p><br><h3><br> Weather matters.</h3><br><p><br> Forget about gray and rainy days hampering fun in the sun. Just as a hurricane can force an oceangoing cruise ship to change course, so too can bad weather -- in particular, heavy rain and droughts -- make or break a river itinerary. For instance, a drought along the Mississippi River in 2012 kept waters so low that riverboats couldn&#39t sail upriver, and <a href="http://www.cruisecritic.com/reviews/cruiseline.cfm?CruiseLineID=57">American Cruise Lines</a> and <a href="http://www.cruisecritic.com/reviews/review.cfm?ShipID=649">American Queen Steamboat Company</a> had to push some of their Upper Mississippi sailings onto the Ohio. In 2013, too much rain flooded the river, making it impossible for riverboats to get under bridges and forcing the closing of several locks. The result was the same as during the drought. Boats scheduled to sail the Upper Mississippi were diverted onto the Ohio.</p><br><h3><br> Seasickness will not be a problem.</h3><br><p><br> Even during bad weather, you never have to worry about the &quotmotion of the ocean.&quot U.S. river water pretty much only goes one way, and while you might bump into a log and feel the boat give a small jolt, it&#39s never going to be rocking from side to side. So leave your seasick patches and pressure point bands at home you don&#39t need &#39em.</p><br><h3><br> You can walk if you want to</h3><br><p><br> American riverboats don&#39t need to dock only at large piers like their oceangoing counterparts. If you can offload a power fishing boat into the water at the town&#39s edge, you can dock a 400-passenger riverboat there, too. That means riverboats are capable of pulling up and debarking passengers within easy walking distance of town. In <a href="http://www.cruisecritic.com/ports/newport.cfm?ID=589">St. Louis</a>, the Arch is less than a 10-minute walk from where the riverboats moor. In Cincinnati, though the boat is technically docked in Newport, Kentucky, you&#39re just a 15-minute walk across a pedestrian bridge from the Great American Ballpark where the Reds play, and 20 minutes from the heart of the city. So even if you don&#39t want to spend anything to do an excursion, it&#39s easy -- and free -- to make your way into just about any town or city you visit.</p><br><h3><br> It probably won&#39t be your last (river) rodeo.</h3><br><p><br> You may think you&#39re only giving one U.S. river cruise a try to see what all the buzz is about, but don&#39t be surprised if you&#39ve got your second river cruise planned before you&#39re even done with the first. River cruise companies have some of the highest repeat rates in the cruise industry. People just can&#39t get enough of them. Whether it&#39s the bucolic towns and quaint cities, superb service and excellent food, all-inclusive pricing and sociable clientele or a mix of all and more, most river cruisers can&#39t wait to sail the next river.</p><br><p><br> To find your next great adventure on the river visit www.tyustours.com or call Tyus Tours &amp Travel at 866-547-5362.</p><br>

Popular culture has tagged Amsterdam as the epicenter for legalized drugs and prostitution. While admittedly, the culture in Amsterdam is very liberal, it is also very controlled and the city itself offers so much more. Amsterdam is a city that needs to be experienced and seen to be believed. It is perhaps the most beautiful city in Europe and certainly a capital of culture.</p><br><div aligncenter" style="width: 650px"><br> <a href="https://www.azamaraclubcruises.com/connect-share/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/amsterdam-dam-square-e1436212177253.jpg"><img alt="Amsterdam, Netherlands." size-full" height="356" src="https://www.azamaraclubcruises.com/connect-share/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/amsterdam-dam-square-e1436212177253.jpg" style="width: 640px height: auto" width="640" /></a><br> <p Square in Amsterdam.</p><br></div><br><p><br> Amsterdam is home to some of the top museums in all of Europe. The Van Gogh Museum is one of my personal favorites and I&rsquom not a big museum person. However, seeing Van Gogh&rsquos masterpieces, some of the most famous paintings in the world, in person, is pretty surreal. The Rijksmuseum or the National Museum is also very fun to walk around and has some great exhibits in a great part of town.</p><br><p><br> The Anne Frank House is the big &ldquocan&rsquot miss&rdquo site in Amsterdam. In fact, it is mandatory that everyone visits this hallowed house on a non-descript street in Amsterdam. If you don&rsquot know the history of Anne Frank and her diary, please do yourself a favor and brush up on it so you really appreciate the significance of visiting the house. It is something that will stick with you like visiting Auschwitz or Birkenau in Poland-trust me on that one.</p><br><div aligncenter" style="width: 650px"><br> <a href="https://www.azamaraclubcruises.com/connect-share/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/amsterdam-anne-frank-house-e1436212293313.jpg"><img alt="Anne Frank House in Amsterdam." wp-image-3410" height="356" src="https://www.azamaraclubcruises.com/connect-share/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/amsterdam-anne-frank-house-e1436212293313.jpg" style="width: 640px height: auto" width="640" /></a><br> <p Frank House in Amsterdam.</p><br></div><br><p><br> As I previously noted, Amsterdam is known for its famed Red Light District and controlled drug use. The Red Light District is a little seedy for sure, but it is also fascinating to walk through and no visit to Amsterdam is complete without walking through it. Day or night it is a fascinating piece of Dutch culture and to be honest, there&rsquos nothing else like it on Earth-it&rsquos one of those places that you can&rsquot believe actually exists.</p><br><p><br> The Heineken Brewery is also in Amsterdam and is very popular with tourists. I have done the tour and thought it was pretty good. Plus, you get free samples at the end! It&rsquos worth checking out if you like beer but even more so, much like Guinness to Ireland, Heineken and Amstel have become engrained in the culture of Holland.</p><br><p><br> But what I love most about the city of Amsterdam is simply walking the gorgeous canal lined streets and getting lost. The city is so gorgeous, that people often forget to look around as they rush from museum to museum or district to district. Amsterdam is best enjoyed on foot or by bike.</p><br><p style="text-align: center"><br> <img alt="Amsterdam, Netherlands." wp-image-3411 size-full" height="356" src="https://www.azamaraclubcruises.com/connect-share/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/Amsterdam-Netherlands-e1436212524562.jpg" style="width: 640px height: auto" width="640" /></p><br><p><br> If you hire a bike, you will feel like a local as just about every Amsterdam local rides a bike. While this is very cool, if you are walking you have to be careful not to get nailed by a bicyclist&hellipor a streetcar!</p><br><p><br> All that said, Amsterdam is one of my favorite cities in Europe and should not be missed. Any preconceived notions about the city will be dispelled immediately on arrival. It is truly one of the worlds great cities.</p><br><p><br> For more information cruises to Amsterdam visit www.tyustours.com.</p><br>

Carnival To Ban Carry On Beverages http://www.tyustours.com/log/post_1183290062_5232494_21812.htm <img src="http://content.onlineagency.com/sites/21812/images/carnivaltobancarry-onbeverages.jpg" height="355" width="630" hspace="5" vspace="5" alt="" align="right" border="0"><p><br> <font color="000000" face="sans-serif" size="2">In an effort to stop liquor smuggling, Carnival Cruise Line is prohibiting its passengers from bringing bottled beverages onboard effective July 9.<br /><br> <br /><br> Carnival says it&#39s implementing the bottled beverage ban for two main reasons. First, it slows down the boarding process due to security checks for contraband booze. Second, it can lead to behavioral problems caused by over consumption.<br /><br> <br /><br> &quotBottled beverages are the most common means by which guests attempt to smuggle alcohol on board, which necessitates that bottles be individually examined by security personnel,&quot Carnival said. &quotThis bogs down the embarkation process and requires security resources dedicated to checking bottled beverages. Most importantly, when behavioral issues occur on board and are ultimately investigated, smuggled alcohol often appears to be a factor.&quot<br /><br> <br /><br> Cruise passengers who want to drink booze without paying shipboard prices get very creative in their smuggling efforts, sometimes going so far as to fill mouthwash bottles with liquor and tinting it with food coloring so it looks like the original product. Or, they&#39ll carefully remove some bottles of water from a package, fill them with booze, and replace them so the bottles and packaging look unopened.<br /><br> <br /><br> Such smuggling has spawned a cottage industry of flasks, plastic bladders and even fake beer bellies that store booze and are said to be undetectable by security devices. Google the topic and you&#39ll find a plethora of advice columns and YouTube videos.<br /><br> However, cruise lines &mdash and it affects virtually all of them &mdash have caught on and now inspect bottles to confiscate the booze. Carnival will continue to check mouthwash and other personal/grooming products in bottles as well as other apparatus designed to smuggle alcohol.<br /><br> <br /><br> Yet Carnival said it realizes many guests carry aboard bottled water or cans of soda, and will allow small quantities. The line also is greatly reducing the cost of buying bottled water onboard.<br /><br> <br /><br> &quotWe will continue to allow up to 12 unopened cans or cartons of water, sodas and non-alcoholic beverages per person to be brought on board during embarkation,&quot the line said. &quotGuests can now purchase a 12-pack of bottled water from Carnival at a price of $2.99 plus tax online prior to their cruise or $4.99 plus gratuities once on board. We sincerely apologize for any disappointment these changes may cause.<br /><br> <br /><br> However, we firmly believe these changes will ultimately benefit all guests.&quot<br /><br> Passengers age 21 and older can, however, bring aboard one 750-milliliter bottle of unopened wine or champagne in carry-on baggage on embarkation day. If they choose to consume it in a restaurant or bar, they will be charged a $15 corkage fee.<br /><br> <br /><br> All liquor, beer, other forms of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages outside of these exceptions are prohibited in both carry-on and checked luggage and will be confiscated and discarded with no compensation provided. All alcohol purchased in ports of call or onboard shops will be returned on the morning of debarkation.<br /><br> <br /><br> Guests also are prohibited from bringing large coolers onboard since it&#39s an impediment to the boarding and security process, Carnival said. They can bring onboard personal-sized coolers, no larger than 12-by-12-by-12 inches to store small quantities of non-alcoholic beverages and/or medications.<br /><br> <br /><br> Carnival emphasized that this bottled beverage ban is not a ploy to increase onboard revenues, as some will undoubtedly accuse. &quotIn fact, we do not anticipate any increase in revenue as a result of this policy change, particularly given the significant reduction in price we have instituted for 12-packs of bottled water,&quot the line said.<br /><br> <br /><br> Carnival is notifying booked guests and travel agents today.<br /><br> <br /><br> &quotBottled beverages are the most common source of attempted transport of alcohol on board,&quot Carnival said. &quotOften times, we find guests transporting alcohol onboard through unauthorized means, resulting in unmonitored consumption of alcohol. Unfortunately, this has led to behavioral and safety related concerns.&quot<br /><br> <br /><br> <strong>What do you think?

New Law Requires Cruise Lines to Publicize All Shipboard Crimes http://www.tyustours.com/log/post_1138641131_5232494_21812.htm <p><br> <span Critic</em></span></p><br><p><br> <span Dori Saltzman, News Editor</em></span></p><br><p><br> <span 30, 2014</span></p><br><p><br> <span a.m. EST) &ndash A provision of the Coast Guard reauthorization bill, which was signed into law December 18, requires cruise lines to provide information on <strong>all</strong> crimes committed on cruise ships, including those that are alleged or under investigation. </span></p><br><p><br> <span law further requires all crimes to be publicized on a consumer website to be maintained by the Department of Transportation. The website will identify each cruise line by name and identify each crime committed or allegedly committed by a passenger or crewmember. The number of people alleged overboard must also be identified for each cruise line. Additionally, the website must be sortable by cruise line and updated quarterly by the DOT. </span></p><br><p><br> <span Coast Guard was previously responsible for maintaining crime ship crime data statistics on its website, though only for investigations already closed by authorities. </span></p><br><p><br> <span Jay Rockefeller has been pushing for the new requirements for two years, claiming the cruise lines have not been honest about crimes committed onboard. </span></p><br><p><br> <span to the Cruise Lines International Association, the rule is not necessary as it is redundant. Cruise lines already report all criminal incidents allegedly committed on their ships on their own websites, including all overboards. </span></p><br><p><br> <span position is that the new provision is unnecessary, because it largely duplicates information already available to the public, which shows that crime is rare on cruise ships and a fraction of corresponding crime rates on land,&quot the association said in a statement. </span></p><br><p><br> <span is the second bill passed into law over the past several years that addressed U.S. government concerns about the cruise industry. In 2010, the Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act was passed, which compels the cruise industry to comply with a number of security provisions including a requirement that all cabin doors be outfitted with peepholes. The law also requires all cruise ship railings to be at least 3.5 feet tall.</span></p><br>

How You Can Learn To Cook On A Cruise? http://www.tyustours.com/log/post_1095870976_5232494_21812.htm <img src="http://content.onlineagency.com/sites/21812/images/howcanyoulearntocookonacruise.png" height="450" width="600" hspace="5" vspace="5" alt="" align="right" border="0"><p><br> Article by <a hover" href="http://www.travelpulse.com/bio/theresa-norton-masek">Theresa Norton Masek</a> <span <span 21, 2014</span></p><br><p><br> Yes, it&rsquos true, there is a lot of food on cruises, from the endless buffets, numerous restaurants and round-the-clock room service. But these days, cruise ship food is increasingly about quality, not just quantity.</p><br><p><br> And now, cruise ships are taking America&rsquos new love affair with food to a new level &mdash they&rsquore teaching us how to source, prep and cook &mdash through onboard cooking classes or tours that teach how to prepare cuisine found in the destination.</p><br><p><br> Here are five cruise lines that will help you learn how to cook.</p><br><p><br> <strong>Oceania</strong></p><br><p><br> You know that Oceania Cruises is dedicated to teaching its guests all about food &mdash the company has a director of culinary enrichment and a fully equipped, dedicated cooking studio with 12 stations on its two newest ships, the Riviera and Marina. The company&rsquos self-proclaimed title as the &ldquocruise line for foodies&rdquo is well-deserved.</p><br><p><br> The upper-premium line also offers Culinary Discovery Tours, which take small groups of passengers to a food market, farm or vineyard and then to a shoreside cooking school to learn how to prepare the local ingredients. Sometimes the class continues in the onboard Bon App&eacutetit Culinary Center.</p><br><p><br> The food-focused tours are a hit with guests, and now Oceania is expanding the program with new culinary outings in St. Lucia and Antigua. The new tours will be offered during the &ldquoHolidays in the Tropics&rdquo sailing that departs Miami on Dec. 23 and on two &ldquoIsland Paradise&rdquo voyages in early 2015.</p><br><p><br> In St. Lucia, the new tour will visit a private estate situated on the grounds of a former sugar cane plantation to explore its expansive herb garden and learn how to cook with them in a class inside the grand house. On the return drive to the pier, guests will stop at the open-air Castries Market to check out locally grown fruits, vegetables and spices.</p><br><p><br> In Antigua, guests will walk through the local market in downtown St. John&rsquos with the culinary center chef, who will show them local fruits such as breadfruit, mangoes, soursop and dasheen. Afterwards, they&rsquoll head for the Villas at Sunset Lane boutique hotel and cooking school to help Chef Jacquie prepare lunch.</p><br><p><br> &ldquoWith our new tours in St. Lucia and Antigua, guests spend time in the kitchen with local culinary experts learning about the spices, fruits, vegetables and cooking customs that have influenced Caribbean cuisine for centuries,&rdquo said Kathryn Kelly, Oceania&rsquos director of culinary enrichment. &ldquoOur goal is for guests to leave the tour with new culinary skills, satisfied taste buds and a deeper appreciation for the vibrant culinary traditions found in the Caribbean.&rdquo</p><br><p><br> <strong>AmaWaterways</strong></p><br><p><br> When you&rsquore sailing on a river through Europe, of course you want to taste the wine and local cuisine. AmaWaterways takes it a step further with Limited Edition Tours that often visit cooking schools, culinary specialty shops, chocolatiers, charcuteries and and more.</p><br><p><br> On its Rhone River cruise through the South of France, the Limited Edition Tours included a lesson in making French bread and nougat in a bakery in Viviers and a hands-on class on Proven&ccedilal appetizers in Avignon (think tapenade and an eggplant spread). Both were delightful.</p><br><p><br> The Limited Edition Tours are included in the cruise fare, but guests must sign up for as space is limited. Regular excursions open to all also included a visit to a truffle farm, another to an olive farm, a red wine and chocolate pairing, and wine tastings at a vineyard in Beaujolais and winery in Tain-l&rsquoHermitage.</p><br><p><br> Side note: AmaWaterways just <a href="http://www.amawaterways.com/pro-fall" target="_blank">slashed fares</a> on this seven-night cruise between Lyon and Arles. The Nov. 6 and Nov. 27 departures on the AmaDagio are now priced from $1,859 per person, double occupancy.</p><br><p><br> <strong>Holland America Line</strong></p><br><p><br> Holland America Line is another cruise company that takes food and education very seriously. The premium line formed a Culinary Council of renowned chefs &mdash including Elizabeth Falkner, David Burke and Jacques Torres &mdash who offer experience and signature recipes served onboard.</p><br><p><br> Its ships also boast the Culinary Arts Center, presented by Food &amp Wine magazine, a theater-style venue that offers classes (including some for kids and teens), wine tastings, guest celebrity chef demonstrations and the like. In some ports of call, there are tours to the local market.</p><br><p><br> <strong>Crystal Cruises</strong></p><br><p><br> This luxury line offers an array of classes and shore excursions that focus on food and drink, visiting traditional homes, farms, chateaus, Michelin-starred restaurants and markets. For example, in Honningsv&aringg, Norway, guests ate King crab just pulled from the North Cape waters! In Dublin, Ireland, the line offered a &ldquoSeafood Master Class&rdquo at the Cliff Townhouse restaurant, which includes a lesson followed by a three-course lunch.</p><br><p><br> <em>PHOTO: Crystal&nbspoffers wine-tastings and culinary shore excursions. (Courtesy of Crystal Cruises)</em></p><br><p><br> All of Crystal&rsquos culinary Experiences of Discovery voyages include hands-on cooking classes, demonstrations, wine tastings, mixology lessons, and a guest chef dinner in the Crystal Dining Room. This year, each culinary-themed cruise features an optional guest chef-created dinner for 12 to 14 guests in Crystal&rsquos Vintage Room. The seven courses feature the flavors of the region and are paired with wines.</p><br><p><br> During holidays and summers, there are galley tours and classes in cookie baking or pizza marking are just for kids.</p><br><p><br> <strong>Silversea Cruises</strong></p><br><p><br> On select voyages, luxury line Silversea offers a cooking school at sea called L&rsquoEcole des Chefs by Relais &amp Ch&acircteaux. Hosted by Chef and culinary trainer David Bilsland, the program includes classes on board or at Relais &amp Ch&acircteaux properties, wine tastings, market tours and cooking competitions.</p><br><p><br> &nbsp</p><br><p><br> &nbsp</p><br><p><br> &nbsp</p><br><p><br> &nbsp</p><br>

Which is the Better Value: Cruise vs On Land Vacation http://www.tyustours.com/log/post_1075651365_5232494_21812.htm <img src="http://content.onlineagency.com/sites/21812/images/best_cruise_lines_for_the_money.png" height="120" width="125" hspace="5" vspace="5" alt="" align="right" border="0"><p><br> When you tally up the costs of an on-land vacation versus a vacation at sea, there&#39s a good chance that the at-sea option will offer a better value &hellip that is, if you choose the right company. A cruise is practically a package deal, with lodging, food and entertainment often all covered in the cruise fare. But affordability is one thing &mdash how do you know that you&#39re actually getting the best bang for your buck? In order to help you get the most out of your vacation budget, U.S. News&#39 <a href="http://travel.usnews.com/cruises/">Best Cruises</a> team&nbsphas amassed the following list of cruise lines that not only offer competitive rates, but also quality experiences.</p><br><p><br> With lodging, dining and entertainment all mashed together into one price, a cruise makes a great choice for the budget-minded vacationer. Add to that the included experience of exploring not just one, but several destinations and it&#39s easy to see why so many travelers opt for a holiday at sea over a holiday on land. But while some of the prices you see advertised may seem too good to be true, how can you be sure you&#39re going to make the most of your vacation budget? To ensure you get the best rate on your next cruise, start by searching itineraries on www.tyustours.com.</p><br><p><br> Best Cruise Lines for the money:</p><br><p><br> Royal Caribbean</p><br><p><br> Disney Cruise Line</p><br><p><br> Celebrity Cruises</p><br><p><br> Carnvial Cruise Line</p><br><p><br> Norwegian Cruise Line</p><br><p><br> Holland America Lines</p><br><p><br> MSC Cruises</p><br><p><br> Princess Cruises</p><br><p><br> Costa Cruises</p><br><p><br> &nbsp</p><br>

Should cruise ship personnel have a duty to advise passengers of potential dangers in certain area http://www.tyustours.com/log/post_692564571_5232494_21812.htm <p><br> A 15-year-old&nbsppassenger shot while independently exploring <a href="http://www.cruisecritic.com/ports/newport.cfm?ID=17">St. Thomas</a> during a cruise. The teenage passenger was killed in <a href="http://www.cruisecritic.com/news/news.cfm?ID=3985" target="blank">July 2010</a> when she was caught in the cross-fire of a gang-related shootout near Coki Beach on St. Thomas, a mainstay port on <a href="http://www.cruisecritic.com/ports/area.cfm?area=8">Eastern Caribbean</a> cruises. The beach, which is a popular tourist spot for swimming and snorkeling, also is next to the Coral World Marine Park. It is a lively tourist area with wandering vendors offering drinks, food, souvenirs and hair-braiding.</p><br><p><br> The girls parents are sueing the cruise line for negligence. Stating that the ship personnel should have warned them that that area had been the scene of violence in the past. The case had been dismissed by a Miami-based federal court judge back in August 2011, but the&nbsp&nbspEleventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, located in Atlanta, restored the negligence suit, but will it make to trial?</p><br><p><br> The real question is this, should cruise ships personnel have a duty to advise passengers of potential dangers in certain area. I have been to Coki Beach many times when traveling on a cruises and I have never been warned about the area . Would a warning have stopped this tragedy from happening? Maybe, maybe not! But the cruise lines argument&nbsp&nbspfor dismissal of the lawsuits states,&nbspasking cruise lines to warn passengers of every possible danger in every port of call was unreasonable.&nbspThey also&nbspclaimed they had no prior knowledge of specific cases of similar violent activity in the exact places the crimes affecting their passengers occurred.</p><br><p><br> Even the appeals court also noted that a company has no duty to warn of an <i>unforeseeable</i> danger. How&nbspunreasonable would it be if passenger stop cruising because&nbspsafety is a concern..<br /><br> <br /><br> <br /><br> &nbsp</p><br>

From mesmerizingly decorative buildings to lush coral reefs beneath sparkling turquoise waters, this Dutch Caribbean island has more than enough attractions on land and under the sea to keep visitors restfully busy for a week.</p><br><p>Hundreds of buildings are marked as monuments to the island's cultural history, including the oldest synagogue in continuous use in the Western hemisphere and a church with a cannonball stuck in the wall. There's also a floating market of boats that come from Venezuela about 35 miles away and a hotel built into a waterfront fortress &mdash its ramparts now house a swimming pool, restaurant and bar. Excellent snorkeling and scuba diving are strong draws to a place that provides a mix of the outdoors and festivities after dark. The island offers something in between the attractions of its neighbors: all-nature-all-the-time <a style="position: static text-decoration: none" target="undefined" href="http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap_travel/20101216/ap_tr_ge/cb_travel_trip_colorful_curacao#"><font style="position: static font-family: arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif color: #366388 !important font-size: 13px font-weight: 400" color="#366388"><span style="position: static font-family: arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif color: #366388 !important font-size: 13px font-weight: 400" and the more beach-and-party-oriented Aruba.</p><br><p>Curacao became an independent country within the kingdom of the Netherlands in October but its ties to the Netherlands date to 1634, when a Dutch trading settlement was established here. Fortresses built along the water now house shops and restaurants. Historic buildings earned the <a style="position: static text-decoration: none" target="undefined" href="http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap_travel/20101216/ap_tr_ge/cb_travel_trip_colorful_curacao#"><font style="position: static font-family: arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif color: #366388 !important font-size: 13px font-weight: 400" color="#366388"><span style="position: static font-family: arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif color: #366388 !important font-size: 13px font-weight: 400" </span><span style="position: static font-family: arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif color: #366388 !important font-size: 13px font-weight: 400" Willemstad, designation as a World Heritage site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization in 1997. When UNESCO decided to put Willemstad on a list of the world's most culturally important cities, the group cited several distinct historic districts reflecting styles from the Netherlands, Spanish and Portuguese colonial towns that traded with the island, which developed into a highly diverse community over three centuries.</p><br><p>Despite its inclusion on a list with some of the world's top tourist destinations, Willemstad can have the feel of a place that hasn't been fully discovered yet by many travelers. During a walking tour earlier this year of the downtown area, only one tourist showed up, a visitor from the United States. Gerda Gehlen, division head of the island's Monument Bureau, normally gives the tour in Dutch but graciously accommodated the guest by shifting to English. While cruise ships stop for a day, recent advertisements in scuba diving magazines highlight the island's &quotconspicuous lack of crowds.&quot</p><br><p>&quotThere's no better place to get away than a place nobody's ever heard of,&quot the ad says beneath a photo of a diver next to a large school of fish.</p><br><p>Most of the buildings display a unique mingling of classic Dutch design with Caribbean influences. Steep gabled roofs with flowing contours cap structures popping with pastel colors. Stucco walls used to cover up the rough building materials like coral stone are festooned with many brightly painted shutters. Decorative verandahs and porches round out a captivating Caribbean flair.</p><br><p>Downtown Willemstad is a walking tourist's dream, because the island's main historic districts are an easy stroll along a natural harbor.</p><br><p>The capital has two parts separated by Santa Anna Bay. Punda, the oldest, includes Fort Amsterdam, which was built soon after the Dutch took the island from the Spanish. A separate fortress nearby stretches more than 1,000 feet along the sea, containing a variety of restaurants overlooking the water. A long line of shops and restaurants also fill buildings along the bay, anchored by the bright yellow Penha building &mdash an often photographed landmark decorated with bright green shutters, soaring gables and white trim. Many of the island's oldest buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries are found along narrow alleys in Punda.</p><br><p>The Mikve Israel-Emanuel Synagogue, which was built in 1732, is a short walk away, a sunny yellow building with brown shutters and flowing white trim around soaring gables built in the first half of the 18th century. Inside, the floor is covered in sand, and the furniture is made of mahogany. The synagogue also has a museum with a variety of ceremonial objects.</p><br><p>A pontoon bridge that regularly opens for passing ships connects Punda with Otrabanda, an area developed in the 18th century on the other side of the bay that contains another waterside fortress with more shops and restaurants and a nearby casino.</p><br><p>Another spectacularly colorful area is a short walk from the <a style="position: static text-decoration: none" target="undefined" href="http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap_travel/20101216/ap_tr_ge/cb_travel_trip_colorful_curacao#"><font style="position: static font-family: arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif color: #366388 !important font-size: 13px font-weight: 400" color="#366388"><span style="position: static font-family: arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif color: #366388 !important font-size: 13px font-weight: 400" </span><span style="position: static font-family: arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif color: #366388 !important font-size: 13px font-weight: 400" The Scharloo section features ornately decorated mansions built by Jewish merchants in the 19th century.</p><br><p>Taxi rides away from downtown reveal surprisingly more eye-catching buildings off the beaten path that largely go unmentioned in tour guides. Although many have yet to be restored like more prominent buildings downtown, they still can turn the head of a tourist riding by on the way to a restaurant.</p><br><p>Walks around the city are only the beginning of Curacao's bright-hued offerings. Beneath the surface, the island's coral reefs offer world-class diving just off shore. Underwater visibility can be more than 100 feet, and the water temperature can exceed 80 degrees Fahrenheit.</p><br><p>The island's underwater scenes teem with reef creatures large and small. A hawksbill sea turtle and octopus can be seen cruising over reefs covered with vase sponges, brain coral, sea anemones and the multicolored swirling spirals of Christmas tree worms. Small critters like the red and white banded coral shrimp hide in small openings in the reef. Another popular dive site close to shore includes a coral-encrusted tugboat.</p><br><p>Dive shops take divers by boat to unique reefscapes. One of the most well-known dive sites offshore is called the Mushroom Forest, for its huge mounds of mountainous star coral shaped like mushrooms jumbled on top of each other.</p><br><p>Once back on land, dining options abound from the multicultural cuisine that has developed from the island's diverse population of European and African ancestry as well as proximity to South America. While there's no shortage of serenity, a thumping nightlife also can be found by those who seek it out. There are several casinos on the island, and Mambo beach turns into a party after dark on weekends &mdash even on Sunday night and into Monday morning. Sleeping seaside pelicans just within earshot of the music appear accustomed to the celebrations.</p><br><p>___</p><br><p>If You Go. </p><br><p>CURACAO: <a href="http://us.rd.yahoo.com/dailynews/ap_travel/ap_tr_ge/storytext/cb_travel_trip_colorful_curacao/39140571/SIG=10ooi27h6/*http://www.curacao.com"><font color="#0058a6">http://www.curacao.com</font></a>. Frequent flights to the island from various U.S. cities including New York, Miami and Dallas are available on American, US Airways, KLM and others.</p><br></div>

Royal Caribbean "Brilliance of The Seas" runs into rough Weather http://www.tyustours.com/log/post_473412970_5232494_21812.htm <p>On Sunday morning, Brilliance ran into rough weather en route to <a href="http://www.cruisecritic.com/ports/newport.cfm?ID=179">Alexandria, Egypt</a>. In the early a.m. hours, large waves and heavy winds caused the ship to list several times, injuring about 60 passengers, sending beds sliding across cabins, shattering glass elevators and leaving the dining room and other public areas strewn with damaged furniture. According to a Royal Caribbean statement, aesthetic damage to the ship's interior has caused the closure of three public venues -- the beauty salon, video arcade and disco -- for the remainder of the sailing. The statement also noted that the most serious of the injuries were fractures suffered by two passengers. <br /><br><br /><br>Despite the dangerous lists, Royal Caribbean said that there has been no impact to Brilliance's operating systems or engines, and it continues to be fully seaworthy. The ship arrived in its next port of call, Malta, at roughly 7 a.m. local time on Tuesday. It will overnight in Malta and then head for Barcelona, Spain, where it will conclude the voyage on Friday as originally scheduled.</p><br><p>According to the line, repairs are underway, and subsequent cruises will not be impacted. The next cruise is set to depart on December 17.</p><br><p>(Updated 10 a.m. EST) -- The nearly 2,060 <a href="http://www.cruisecritic.com/reviews/review.cfm?ShipID=261">Brilliance of the Seas</a> passengers who endured a <a href="http://www.cruisecritic.com/news/news.cfm?ID=4269">horrifying early morning</a> in the Mediterranean won't be paying a dime for the experience.<br /><br><br /><br>&quotThe captain announced a full refund for all guests as a result of the 'unfortunate incident' of two days ago,&quot posted Cruise Critic member <b>Lifelong Cruiser</b>, who's onboard, on Monday. <a href="http://www.cruisecritic.com/reviews/cruiseline.cfm?CruiseLineID=32">Royal Caribbean</a> spokeswoman Cynthia Martinez confirmed the statement, and an official release from the line acknowledged that passengers and crew had been through a &quotfrightening experience.&quot <br /><br><br /><br>The line had initially doled out $200 in onboard credit ($400 for those in suites) -- a level of compensation that had angered some and resulted in &quotat least one guest letter circulating that criticized the 'nominal' amount,&quot noted <b>Lifelong Cruiser</b>.<br /><br><br /><br><br /><br><br /><br><br /><br><br /><br>&nbsp</p>
