Royal Caribbean to Offer

Google Street View

Royal Caribbean has announced that it

will soon be changing the way cruise

lovers plan their holidays by joining

forces with Google to become the

first cruise line to offer Google Maps

Business View utilising Google's

Street View technology on board

Allure of the Seas. By making use of

Street View technology, the cruise line

will offer its guests an interactive and

immersive experience when they are

looking for that perfect cruise holiday.

The program manager at Google UK,

Deborah Schenker, said: "You can

check out anything from restaurants to

aircraft in Google Maps, and now for

the first time you can sail the seas too

with the first ever cruise ship coming

on board."

Cruise the Caribbean On Board the Lovely MSC Divina

MSC Cruises has released

its Caribbean itineraries

for the 2015/16 winter

season on board MSC Divina. The selection

of eight-day Caribbean cruises is now open

for reservations. They feature a number of

new ports of call, and an 11-day voyage

visiting Panama, Colombia and Costa Rica

is also available.

The cruise line's executive vice-president

for guest services, PR and sales, Ken

Muskat, said: "We've released our newest

itineraries earlier than ever to ensure

our valued travel agent partners have

the resources and crucial time needed to

successfully organize group bookings,

along with added incentives to make a

group booking with MSC Cruises even

more lucrative."

The season starts on 11th November 2015,

when MSC Divina embarks on an 11-day

round-trip voyage from Miami, visiting

exciting ports such as Cristobal in Panama,

Cartagena in Colombia and Puerto Limon

in Costa Rica. The ship will continue the

season with a range of eight-day Western

and Eastern Mediterranean cruises boasting

new ports of call in Charlotte Amali, St

Thomas; La Romana, Dominican Republic;

and Nassau, Bahamas.

The MSC Divina was built between 2010

and 2012. She started sailing under the

name MSC Fantastica until the cruise

line renamed her to honour renowned

actress Sophia Loren. She embarked on

her first commercial voyage in May 2012

and is currently permanently based in the

Caribbean. She is the 12th and biggest

ship in the MSC Cruises fleet and has a

passenger capacity of 3,959.

Dear Jetline

I am writing with reference to the

Panama Canal cruise that my wife and I

have just returned from, and to express

my thanks to your staff, and in particular

Adam Oxton. The holiday its self was

very much bespoke and due to the

services of Adam in putting it together it

was a great success. Due entirely to his

expertise we were again in contact with

him even before leaving for our holiday,

to book another cruise in October.

It is seldom these days to come across an

employee with the dedication that Adam

has given us, and you can be sure we will

return again next year. I am also sure that

credit is also due to Jetline Management

to ensure that agents have the correct

training and backup provided.

I would be grateful if you would pass on

my thanks to Adam and also Matt Fediw

and look forward to contacting you in the


Yours Sincerely,

John R Mingay
