Cruise News: Even More Reasons To Love Cruising

Champagne, megaships, expeditions… the cruise industry is never short of exciting and enticing news!


“Shake for champagne”

If you’ve been to London’s Bob Bob Ricard restaurant, you’ll know how much fun it is to have champagne appear at the push of a button… now Virgin Voyages passengers will be able to enjoy a similar treat at sea.

Travel Pulse reports that passengers on the Scarlet Lady will simply have to open the Virgin Voyages app, shake their mobile phone, and a button will appear saying, “Save water, drink champagne.” Press that button to place your order and the app will track your exact location on the ship and send you a bottle of bubbly. And not just any bubbly – this is Moet et Chandon Imperial.

We’re completely on board with this plan!


Sail South America

Looking for a nice, long cruise? Try 83 nights starting with an Atlantic crossing to Brazil, taking in the Amazon, and then sailing around the South American coastline with Saga.

This indulgent new cruise is set to begin in 2021.


Viking Expeditions

Viking is combining its fabulous cruise ship features with full expedition capabilities in two new ships, which will take adventurous cruisers to the Arctic and Antarctic regions in comfort and style. All staterooms will have balconies, says Cruise Critic, and even the smallest cabins will be quite spacious at 269 square feet.  


World’s Largest Cruise Ship 2021

Royal Caribbean held a keel-laying ceremony for Wonder Of The Seas, which is set to be the world’s largest cruise ship when it launches in 2021.

The ceremony required a 1,400 ton crane to lower a 970 ton block onto the building dock in France – this is going to be an enormous floating city!
