Miami cruise liner Royal Caribbean International has ensured its market base in Asia by setting up office in Hong Kong, the Royal Caribbean Blog stated.
Next summer, the company’s cruise ship Voyager of the Seas will be at port in Hong Kong for 22 cruises. Voyager of the Seas will sail out of Beijing on June 26, 2015 for a six-night cruise to her new home port in Hong Kong, where she will remain until October 2015. Three- to ten-night cruises will be offered to destinations such as Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan, as well as other areas in China.
Cruises are one of the most universally enjoyed American vacations. However, there is always a danger that a passenger will suffer an injury on a cruise ship, and the cruise ship company may be held liable. If you have experienced this, contact the cruise ship injury attorneys at Louis A. Vucci, P.A., by dialing (786) 375-0344 to learn about your legal options.
Miami-based Royal Caribbean International announced it will conclude its cruise ship service next year from the Port of New Orleans, The Times-Picayune reported on June 10.
Royal Caribbean spokeswoman Janet Diaz said there are no New Orleans ships planned for the winter of 2015-2016. The 2,360-passenger Serenade of the Seas ship replaced the larger Navigator of the Seas at the port in December 2013. Serenade underwent a major $29 million renovation. Three restaurants and an outdoor café were added, plus a wireless internet connection was installed throughout.
Port of New Orleans president and CEO Gary LaGrange said that upon conferring with Royal Caribbean CEO Adam Goldstein, he gathered that there is a possibility that Hong Kong will replace New Orleans as a port destination due to an increasing demand for cruise ships in Asia. The cruise line has not yet said whether it will return to port at New Orleans in 2016.

Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Equinox has partnered with Royal Caribbean International’s Allure of the Seas and Explorer of the Seas in an initiative to monitor ocean circulation dynamics and assess oceanic and atmospheric conditions, the Royal Caribbean blog reported on May 13.
The data gathered by both cruise lines is turned over to the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science for analysis. Included in the list of things that the scientists record are ocean temperature, ocean surface properties, salinity, and chlorophyll concentration. They also monitor meteorological data. Understanding and comparing this data will make it easier for scientists to forecast climate change effects on marine life and habitats like coral reefs.
