The Most Unique Cruise Ship Features!

Cruise.9Back in the golden day of cruising, travelers could barely believe their eyes when they stepped aboard a luxury cruise liner and found fully equipped gymnasiums, relaxing Turkish baths, and even well stocked libraries and outdoor, European-style cafes. Of course, all of these features, and indeed much, much more, are pretty standard across the board now, with most of us expecting high-end restaurants, shopping malls and casinos at the very least when taking a cruise. With the bar being well and truly raised, cruise companies around the world are seeking out new features that will make their ships stand out over all others and what the industry is starting to see on the newer ships, and on those that have been recently renovated, is a level of excitement and a level of utter luxury that has simply never before been seen at sea.

North Star, Quantum of the Seas, Royal Caribbean

The North Star, which features aboard Royal Caribbean’s newest vessel scheduled to set sail in 2014, is the first of its kind in the North Star, Quantum of the Seas, Royal Caribbeanworld. Suspended by a rotating arm-style mechanism attached to the ship’s uppermost deck, the glass-encased gondola can only be described as a blend of the capsules of the London Eye and the glass elevator in the Roald Dahl classic. Holding up to 13 passengers at any one time, the North Star gives unrivaled 360-degree views over the vast ocean, from a 300 meter high vantage point. Royal Caribbean wanted to create a new feature that would simply be irresistible to travelers, and based on the 6.8 million annual visitors to the Eiffel Tower, and the 3.65 million people who ride to the top of the Empire State building each year, it seems that high viewpoints are right on trend. There’s just something about the perceived breathtaking sights that travelers cannot say ‘no’ to. It’s anticipated that the newer ships of the Quantum class will also feature a similar attraction.

Movies Under the Stars, Grand Princess, Princess Cruises

Movies Under the Stars, Grand PrincessOutdoor movie screens are becoming quite common on newer cruise ships as more and more cruise companies aim to make use of the great weather, particularly throughout the Mediterranean, Caribbean, and around the Australian coast. However, none are quite as spectacular as the ‘Movies Under the Stars’ screens on many of the Princess Cruises vessels. ‘MUTS’, as it has become known, debuted on the Grand Princess and, with a screen measuring 300 square feet, it is now one of the largest outdoor movie screens in the world. Located poolside for the ultimate in atmospheric impression, the screen shows up to 7 recent Hollywood blockbusters each day, along with sporting events, concerts, and kid’s films. Utilising state-of-the-art technology, the screen can be seen and heard even in brilliant sunlight and against the sounds of the ship’s engines, so you get excellent quality all of the time. The latest edition to the fleet, Royal Princess, unveiled an even larger screen towering over the open deck space.

Virtual Balconies, Quantum of the Seas, Royal Caribbean

Balcony cabins are a great choice of accommodation that give you the chance to gaze out over the ocean from your own private space. Virtual Balconies, Quantum of the SeasIt’s an especially good option for those taking a romantic cruise, to enjoy the intimacy of watching the ship sail along the water’s surface together. Sadly, balcony cabins don’t always fall within the holiday budget, but all that is about to change. Royal Caribbean’s newest ship, Quantum of the Seas, features 373 ‘virtual balcony’ cabins, which include 80 inch LED screens stretching from floor to ceiling of an indoor cabin. What’s even more impressive is that these virtual balconies display real-time images of the outside, both at sea and in port. You can even turn the screen on and off as you please, so if you’re trying to have a little nap in the day, just switch the screen off for instant sleep-inducing conditions. Virtual balconies are expected to be rolled out on other Quantum class ships, as well as Navigator, Voyager, Adventure, and Explorer of the Seas, and it’s estimated that they will revolutionise cruise accommodations to a point where indoor cabins become the most popular rooms on the ship!

Marco Pierre White Room Restaurant, Ventura, P&O

Marco Pierre White Room Restaurant, Ventura

Love him or loathe him, Marco Pierre White has become a household name in the UK, and his culinary skills cannot be questioned. Marco lends his name to not one but four different restaurants across a number of P&O vessels with The White Room aboard Ventura considered by many to be one of the finest speciality dining venues at sea. The menu is varied but has a definitive European theme, with French-inspired chicken coq au vin, Italian risotto, and, of course, the obligatory snail side dish. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the man himself, who frequently steps aboard to whip up some mouth-watering cuisine and ensure that standards are being maintained. He’s even been known to offer on-board cookery lessons for children, helping to teach them about good health, good nutrition, and the finest of foods. If you’re keen to dine at a celebrity chef restaurant on board, try to reserve a table when you embark, as these restaurants do book up quickly. If you’re traveling in a suite aboard Ventura then you will also have exclusive use of this superb dining venue for breakfast each morning, should you wish.

Cruising is evolving to a point where it is almost unrecognisable from the days of the 1920s and 30s when simply a good meal at sea was considered to be an amazing feat. As more and more ships are being designed and constructed, we’re starting to see features, activities, and attractions that were once never mere pipe dreams now becoming spectacular realities. Bumper cars, skydiving simulators and the worlds most talented performance artists are just some of the additional features we can expect to see on ships in the near future.

Let’s Go Cruising — Coastal Travel Vacations – Christian Team – Coastal – Freedom at it’s Best!

Coastal Travel Vacations - Cruises

Coastal Travel Vacations – Cruises

Cruises are like vacations where the scenery keeps changing, but you stay in one place. Cruises are like having your own private food court–only way classier. Cruises are like small villages where you and the other passengers and the crew and staff become acquainted and share all the public spaces–restaurants, bars and lounges, showrooms, the pool deck, the casino, the library, the boutique. Cruising is like going on an adventure but having friendly “guides” to help you along the way. Cruising is like looking out at a never-ending horizon or a glimpse of everyday life going on along the shore or riverbank. Cruises are a chance to make your vacation what you want. You’re never really alone, so you feel safe, but you can have as much privacy as you’d like. No one knows you so you can take on a new persona and be the life of the party, shedding inhibitions in a way that you’d never dare in your “real life.” Since there are so many different kinds of cruises and ships, you can find one that fits your desires and expectations and make yourself right at home.

Like Traveling on a Floating Resort
One of the best things about cruising is that you only have to unpack once, and, even better, you might have a butler who’ll do the unpacking for you. No more living out of a suitcase and racing from town to town and hotel to hotel. All you have to do is stand on the deck and watch as the captain docks your floating hotel in another port. Then you walk down the gangway into a new adventure. In ports where you don’t want to miss a single thing, you can take a guided excursion in which transportation and plans have been arranged in advance for your pleasure. If a tour is not your thing, you can wander the streets, stopping at cafes and shops–you really learn about a place when you talk to the locals. Or take an active excursion, such as a snorkeling trip or nature hike or a hot-air balloon ride before heading back to your hot shower, gourmet dinner and ballroom dancing on the ship.

Relaxing Days at Sea
When your ship is at sea (usually at night to reach the next port), you have a lot more to do than just work on your tan. imagesMost cruise lines (but not all) offer diverse and active children’s programs as well as special events for teens, such as a private disco night or moonlight swim. Between meals–and if you try, you can eat as many as seven times in a day–you can shop in the boutique, gamble in the casino, go to an afternoon tea dance or dance class, get a spa treatment, check out the library, practice your putting or play ping-pong, watch a movie in your stateroom or in the ship’s theater or even, in some cases, with your kids on a giant poolside screen. Increasingly, cruisers want to learn as they travel, so you can attend a lecture or port talk about the upcoming destinations so that your experiences onshore are especially rich and meaningful. In the evening, you and your family can attend a show or dance to the music of a guitarist in a small lounge.

Oh, the People You’ll Meet
Cruise.7Cruising offers one of the best ways to meet some of the most fascinating people in the world. Not only can you meet them in port but also on the ship. The guest list for my recent cocktail party on the Silver Shadow included a Princess from Spain, a former CIA operative who was around for the Bay of Pigs, a German immigrant and teacher for the deaf-turned-dance host on the ship, the star of “Phantom of the Opera” on London’s West Side, and the guy who invented the wind sail. And don’t forget what amazing stories your butler from Sri Lanka or your cabin stewardess from the Philippines can share. Your opportunities for interesting gab-fests are boundless.

Expert Insight
After sailing on more than 100 cruises, I can honestly say–to paraphrase Will Rogers–I never met a cruise I didn’t like. I travel the world’s oceans and waterways on big, mainstream ships and small, ultra-luxury ships and flat riverboats that move so slow you can ride alongside on a bike. Sometimes the food is to die for; sometimes it’s so-so. Some ships offer large, Broadway-style shows with singers, dancers, musicians and great costumes, while others offer a guitarist or dance group from a local port. In the end, what really affects the quality of your cruise experience is the people–passengers and staff alike. And when you’re lucky, you make lifelong friends you’ll see again on and off the ship.

There are activities going on all day. The activities are so varied, you’ll probably find something for you to do! There are

contests like survivor, belly flop competitions, scavenger hunts, etc. Then there’s trivia, bingo, game shows, karaoke, etc. In addition, whenever you win anything, you gain points for you team. Basically, the ship is divided into three teams: red, white, and blue. If you win, you let them know what team you’re on. The winners also usually get a coveted “ship on a stick” trophies.

The food is also great on Carnival. Most ships have a deli, 24-hour pizza station, Chinese station, and a couple more buffet options. Then there is the dining room. Some ships also have supper clubs, which serve food made-to-order using finer ingredients than in the dining room. There is usually live piano music, and a limited number of guests, so the environment is much more intimate.

Everyday you’ll get the newsletter, the Carnival Capers, which explains everything above, and provides a rip-out list of the day’s activities.

There’s a whole lot more to know! The best way to learn it all is to just go on a cruise and experience it for yourself.

Coastal Travel Vacations offers 3 different Travel memberships. With the Basic package you are given 6 Complimentary Cruises.  With the Premier package you are given an unlimited amount of complimentary cruises. With these cruises, you are only responsible for taxes and port fees.

Choosing the Right Leader in your Coastal Vacation Business

Are you looking into working a home based business with Coastal Vacation Club? Choosing the right Sponsor is the most important step in your discovery process. Why?

Success or Failure!

You always want to make sure the sponsor you’re with has the experience to help you succeed. Trust is a major factor when looking for a leader. The reason I’m saying this is, you want to make sure they’ve been doing this for quite a while and they’re not going to disappear on the YOU and on the business!

Another negative I’ve found is: The sponsor is doing more than one business at a time. Sometimes doing two is alright, but more than that and YOU won’t get the attention and the training you need to succeed because they’re focusing on the other businesses and having to train the new people in those businesses as well. One business at a time is always the best then you’ll know you have their full attention.

My point is: thoroughly check out the sponsor, the leader. Find out how long they’ve been in business, what their experience has been like. Find out if they’re focusing on more than one business at a time. Is he or she going to be with you next week, next month, next year or just disappear? You get the point!

Choosing the right Leader within Coastal Vacation Club is important as well.

Good Luck to you and God Bless You in all you do!

Get Started in a Home Based Business – MLM's Don't Work – Direct Sales Do

It Happens Every 11 Seconds. Every 11 seconds someone somewhere in America starts a home based business. That’s 8,000 every day. 240,000 people every month joining the already 30,000,000 (thirty million) who operate their own part-time or full-time home based business. That number is expected to Triple to NINETY MILLION in this decade.

These Individuals have decided to Take control of their lives, their time, and become their OWN BOSS. After all doesn’t financial freedom really begin at home? The old Plan is History, OBSOLETE. Years ago, it made a lot of sense to join the top Fortune 500 companies and loyally work five days a week or more for 40 to 45 years until retirement. BUT, that plan is history, toast, gone, especially with 1,500 employees that lose their job every day. There is no security working for someone else. Once you know the truth, you will understand, for the truth shall set you Free.

Here’s The Truth. Out of one hundred individuals, age twenty-five and older who reach the age sixty-five and enter into retirement, well, you read the following breakdown and see where you fit in. Out of 5%, 1% Is rich and wealthy and 4% are financially independent. Of the other 95%, 5% are still working. 28% are no longer with us, they’re deceased. 62% are Flat Broke! How many people do you know who fit into each of the categories? Which one do you fit in? When you really think about these percentages, isn’t it shocking that 95% of the people in this GREAT country have been working their lives away so that 5% could be financially independent, rich and wealthy? So, how do you get out of the 95% and enjoy the lifestyle of the elite 5%?

You start your own business! That’s the key. Choose an industry that you’re passionate about. Passion is the key. You have to be very passionate and believe in your product 100% or you will fail. If you love to travel, then start a travel business. You get the point?

The real issue is to find something now and get started right away. Do something for yourself, your family, and your future. Love what you do or don’t do it.

The worst mistake in life is a Missed Opportunity. Don’t let your opportunity pass you by.

Good luck and God Bless!
