Could There Be Another Extended CDC No Sail Order?

It's reported that the CDC's No Sail Order has been extended through to the end of October 2020 but this is "utter nonsense" according to Carnival Cruise Line's ambassador.

The world’s finest ultra-luxury cruise line took delivery of its brand new cruise ship the named Seabourn Encore.

An official handover ceremony was held at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy. When a cruise ship is delivered to the cruise line the shipyard releases control to them and now the ship is pretty much complete. In January 2017 the Seabourn Encore will be christened on January 7, 2017 in Singapore with International recording artist and world’s best-selling Soprano, Sarah Brightman as its godmother.

Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn, said:

“We have been looking forward to this day for over two years. Seabourn Encore has become a stunning ship that will set a new standard in ultra-luxury cruising.”

“I am very proud of our partnership with Fincantieri, and it has been a great pleasure to work together to transform raw materials into this incredible vessel that will make a great addition to the Seabourn fleet.”

The luxury vessel will sail its inaugural voyage from Singapore to Indonesia along and then several different voyages based in Australia and New Zealand. The ship will head towards Dubai and then complete its winter season in Athens, Greece on May 5, 2017. The ship will offer a range of Summer Mediterranean cruises which will come to an end on September 13, 2017.

Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri, said:

“The jewel we deliver today is the first built for Seabourn, and dry dock works for the second vessel of this new and prestigious client will start in the next few days in our shipyard in Sestri Ponente. I say this with a certain pride and a lot of satisfaction, because Seabourn represents the top range offer of the Carnival Group and Fincantieri is now identified as an absolute reference point from the market, able to offer tailor-made products to an ever wider range of customers.”

“This gratifying result became possible thanks to the strategy stubbornly followed in the last years that has allowed us to be in the best conditions to seize the opportunities offered by the market.”

The 40,350 gross ton ship carries 600 guests, based on double occupancy, who reside in 300 elegantly appointed suites each with a private verandah.
