Cruise Giants Aid Rebuilding Caribbean As Hurricane Irma Winds Down To Support The Caribbean Destinations

As Hurricane Irma winds down, the cruise industry looks not only to rebound its business but also aid the regions most devastated by the storm. The big three: Carnival Corporation, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Limited and Royal Caribbean Cruises Limited are all in hurricane relief mode.
As of Sunday, Carnival Cruise Line’s latest website update recognizes the continued closure of the Floridian departure points PortMiami, Port Everglades, Port Canaveral and the Port of Tampa.

In the meantime, the company is already working to support the Caribbean destinations hit hard over the last several days as well as Florida directly and via its charitable Carnival Foundation: "Deliveries will be worked into ships’ cruise itineraries as part of our ongoing operations. And, as we await news of the full impact that Irma will have on Florida, we stand ready to provide support, as needed, to affected ports and communities.”



The plan is to provide immediate and long-term support, and Carnival is in contact with Caribbean officials to best implement a strategy. Norwegian Cruise Line is also doing its part to help evacuate travelers from St. Thomas, according to a press release.

The Norwegian Sky will come to the aid of those who could not get off the island before the storm arrived. The ship is scheduled to arrive late this evening to help in the effort being organized by the government of St. Thomas. Norwegian Sky is then expected to leave with the rescued and arrive back in its homeport of Miami on Thursday, September 14.

Similar to Carnival, Royal Caribbean International says on its website that the company is mobilizing supplies. It is deploying ships to St. Thomas and St. Maarten in conjunction with U.S. and regional governments. It is standing by to assist Key West and other destinations as well.
Adventure of the Seas headed to help St. Maarten on Sunday while Majesty of the Seas is also calling on St. Thomas and St. Maarten with supplies. The latter ship is additionally charged with safely evacuating people from St. Maarten. The Empress of the Seas is ready to assist Key West as needed too.

No doubt, all of these efforts will be crucially important to the recovery of the Caribbean region. Rather than have ships sit idly in limbo as passenger sailings are necessarily canceled, it’s wonderful to see the cruise lines put their equipment to such admirable use. How quickly the cruise industry will again become fully operational from Florida is still to be determined, especially seeing how badly flooded the Miami area around its port was during the storm.

The PortMiami website currently reads, “Ports and waterfront facilities shall remain closed to waterfront activities until the passage of tropical storm force winds and the COTP, in conjunction with the SWAT has determined it is safe to reopen the port.”
Once it does, Caribbean destinations themselves will be affected for awhile.
Royal Caribbean’s website indicates, “Given Hurricane Irma's impact to St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Key West, we will be working on alternative ports for future sailings until these islands have fully recovered.”

This leads me to reiterate my previous idea. Carnival Corporation’s Fathom brand is purpose-built to combine passenger sailings with volunteer opportunities. It may no longer have its own Adonia to dedicate to the Dominican Republic, but it could potentially send one of the ships from its nine other brands to affected areas with hundreds or even thousands of willing participants onboard.
It could be the perfect interim solution for ships gearing back up to full service—from any cruise corporation really—to specifically head to the islands hit hardest during the hurricane. Cruise travelers and volunteers assemble!

Scotland Voted World's Most Beautiful Country

The votes have been counted and Scotland has been pronounced as the most beautiful country in the world by the readers of Rough Guides.
Yes, this small nation—known for having a landscape loaded with alluring lochs and rugged islands—beat out bigger countries like Canada, New Zealand and Italy to grab the crown.




Lots of Lochs
Readers surely took into consideration the countless lakes—called lochs in this neck of the woods—that stretch across the Scottish countryside. The lochs are the result of ancient glaciers and today stand as an awesome example of how truly gorgeous geology can be.
Loch Ness is the poster child for Scottish lochs. This enchanting body of water holds the most water of any in Scotland, and while it may be most famous for the mysterious monster which may (or may not) live in its depths, its beauty is definitely real.
Loch Morar is the deepest of the lochs in Scotland while Loch Duich is home to a “straight from the silver screen” island castle called Eilean Dona.
Majestic Mountains
While Scotland will never be confused with Switzerland (which landed in 15th place), it still packs a punch when it comes to pinnacles.
Misty and moody Ben Nevis checks in at just over 4,400 feet high, making it the tallest peak in the United Kingdom and a very popular day hike location. The Cairngorms range is full of rolling mountains and assorted natural attractions, with the town of Aviemore being its active sports base.

Fair Islands
Voters were also most likely swayed by Scotland's spectacular collection of islands. Numbering around 800, these beauties are home to miles of windswept beaches and some serious serenity.
The Isle of Skye is probably the star of Scottish islands, as it is home to a dramatic landscape of spiky mountains, heather-covered moors and colorfully-painted villages. The island of Islay boasts the sweeping sands of Killinallan Beach in addition to some of the smokiest and peatiest whisky on the planet.
And if you are really up for some off-the-beaten-path island adventure, head ferry up to Fair Isle and the rest of the Shetland Islands, with their rocky cliffs, seabirds & flowers and unique traditions.
Sky Full of Stars
Some voters must have also been aware of Scotland's nocturnal beauty. Even after the sun goes down, the sights are still out of this world. That's because Scotland has some of the largest swaths of dark sky in all of Europe.
Each evening, they put on a stellar performance.
The country is home to Europe's second official Dark Sky Park—Galloway Forest Park—which is located only a 90-minute drive from Glasgow. On the outskirts of the park, you will find the Scottish Dark Sky Observatory, whose facilities are open to the public and are certain to enhance your stargazing experience.

Stargazers will be blown away by how much is visible in the Scottish sky and, if you are lucky, you may even spot the Northern Lights dancing across the horizon.
The rest of the top 20 in the competition were as follows:
20. Vietnam
19. Croatia
18. Ireland
17. Norway
16. Peru
15. Switzerland
14. Finland
13. India
12. Mexico
11. Slovenia
10. Wales
9. U.S.A
8. Iceland
7. England
6. Indonesia
5. South Africa
4. Italy
3. New Zealand
2. Canada

Delta Flight 302 Departed San Juan's Luis Munoz Marin International Airport Got in and Out Right Before Irma

A Delta Air Lines flight flew into San Juan, Puerto Rico and then changed course to New York City all while Hurricane Irma was bearing down on the Caribbean island Wednesday afternoon.

According to data from flight-tracking website FlightAware.com, Delta Flight 431 departed New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport shortly after 8 a.m. ET and arrived in San Juan at noon.
Just 40 minutes later, Delta Flight 302 departed San Juan's Luis Munoz Marin International Airport with 173 passengers before ultimately arriving safely back at JFK at 4:22 p.m.
Flight radar captured the incredible path of both flights, which managed to narrowly avoid the Category 5 storm's powerful core.
While seemingly risky, Delta says that both flights were instead well calculated.
"Our meteorology team is the best in the business," said Delta's vice president of operations and customer center, Erik Snell, via The Washington Post. "They took a hard look at the weather data and the track of the storm and worked with the flight crew and dispatcher to agree it was safe to operate the flight."
"Our flight and ground crews were incredible in their effort to turn the aircraft quickly and safely so the flight could depart well before the hurricane threat."
According to the Post, the 28 mph winds and gusts up to 36 mph in San Juan Wednesday afternoon were well below operating limits for the Boeing 737.
Nonetheless, Wednesday's Delta flight was the last in and out of San Juan before conditions began to worsen and air traffic control ceased operations at the airport.

US Government Warns Airlines, Airports About Terror Threats





In a memo obtained by NBCNews.com, federal law enforcement agencies have sent a warning to airports and airlines in the United States that they remain top targets for terrorist groups.
The nine-page memo was sent Tuesday to passenger airlines and many of America’s nearly 20,000 airports by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Homeland Security and the National Counterterrorism Center.
The report reminds airports and airlines that the presence of large crowds in unsecured areas makes them a vulnerable target. The memo states the industry needs to be aware that, “terrorists outside the U.S. remain intent on attacking airports.”
While the memo doesn’t directly address the recent ban on electronics on some international flights, it does cite recent terror attacks on foreign airports and airliners. The report also went on to list several threats, including concealed weapons and explosives, insider threats posed by airport employees and drones.
In addition, the federal law enforcement agencies have also shared several additional security measures for airports and airlines to follow, including providing the proper training for employees, adding technology to monitor sensitive areas and utilizing guard towers for an elevated view of each facility’s perimeter.
The memo also examines the tools that airports and airlines are using to communicate with the public about terror threats in order to ensure the information is getting to the passengers in and around the airport. OlayinkaOyelamiHotels – …Real time availability online traveler-friendly booking

1) Grand Canyon
The quintessential landmark of the American West and Arizona's greatest treasure. We've all heard about the Grand Canyon and have pictures in our head of the red-brown cliffs and precarious railings. But the Grand Canyon is more than just a hole in the ground, and there is a reason why tourists from all of the country and the globe make the journey every year. However, the Grand Canyon isn't limited to the tourist railings and gift shop. Take a mule ride, bike, or hike on some of the most beautiful trails in the world that take you up and down the canyon's geological strata like a journey through time. For a thrilling and picturesque view, you can see the famous transparent Grand Canyon Skywalk, allowing you to walk directly above the gaping canyon. For a little extra, you can find companies around the canyon that sell aerial tours via small, twin-engine planes!
2) Yosemite
Spanning the largest uninhabited region of the Sierra Nevadas, Yosemite National Park is often cited as the most popular camping destination in the United States. With beautiful hikes, waterfalls, and wildlife of all sorts, Yosemite is the dream destination for any outdoorsy type. There are epic full-day trails for more spirited travelers and more family friendly ones as well. Be sure to find a trail that gives you a view of the impressive Half Dome rock formation, or look into giving it a climb yourself!
3) Las Vegas
The only actual city on this list, clearly Las Vegas is more than just another city. From the world-famous casinos like the MGM Grand, Luxor, and Rio to critically acclaimed performances like Penn & Teller, Cirque Du Soleil, and more, Vegas is a desert city designed to be an oasis of creature comforts. Some of the best musical and stage performers make Vegas their home, and while there are certainly parties to be had if that's what you're searching for, the lights, the sights, and the electricity of Vegas make it one of the West's national treasures and a must-visit.
4) Carlsbad Caverns
Stepping into some of the vast, open chambers of Carlsbad Caverns can sometimes feel like stepping onto a different planet. The impressively gigantic stalactite and stalagmite formations dwarf its visitors, giving an overwhelming feeling of awe and wonder. The area includes more than 188 caves, with guided tours and expeditions for every level of spelunker. This huge network of caves is home to more than 17 species of bats, at nearly 800,000 in Carlsbad Cavern's alone. The park arranges viewings of the bats mass exoduses and returns from the caves—another incredible sight you'll never forget!
5) The Bay Area (California)
One of the main reasons people out west in Silicon Valley refer to San Francisco and the dozen plus cities bordering the San Francisco Bay as "The Bay Area" is because their public rail, B.A.R.T. (Bay Area Rapit Transit) is one of the most convenient and easy to understand public transportation systems in the country. Park your car somewhere cheap in the eastern part of the Bay Area, like Dublin or Richmond, and travel all over San Francisco, Berkeley, Walnut Creek, Oakland, and more without draining your wallet. After a long road trip, the Bay Area makes for the perfect end to a westward journey where you can stretch your legs and still see some sights!
6) Yellowstone
Yellowstone National Park was the first National park established by congress and spans nearly three and a half thousand squire miles of a region in Wyoming replete with mountain ranges, lakes, canyons, and rivers. So whether you like kayaking, hiking, camping, or just want to take pictures of its famous geyser, Old Faithful, Yellowstone is a can't miss location. While in Yellowstone, take a moment to appreciate that beneath your very feet and powering Old Faithful is the planet's largest active supervolcano, the Yellowstone Caldera. How many tourist attractions can claim that?
7) Wine Country
Northern California and the Central Valley are home to some of the world's best wine and grape vineyards. From Lodi to Napa Valley, over a hundred vineyards are within half an hour to two hours' drive from Sacramento. Get world-class wine and relax in the scenic part of California that seems to be spring and summer year round.
8) Monument Valley
Chances are if you've seen more than a couple western films in your life, you've seen Monument Valley centered off in the background. Monument Valley is the picture-perfect landscape of the American West, and an awe-inspiring destination worth devoting a whole day and night to, particularly if you're a stargazer. The giant rock bluffs and plateaus that make up Monument Valley are located on the Arizona-Utah border of the Colorado Plateau, a region that is sacred to the Navajo people.
9) The Four Corners
Just an hour or two drive from monument valley, you can't pass up taking a picture at The Four Corners, the only spot where four different states in the country touch borders. Though also part of and overseen by the Hopi and Navajo Nations, the Four Corners Monument marks the quadripoint where the state lines of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona intersect. Be sure to get some unbelievably delicious traditional Native American fry bread while you're there!
10) Redwood National parks
Whether you are a child or an adult, how can you resist visiting a forest comprised of the tallest trees in the world? California's redwood forests span hundreds of miles from north of San Francisco to the Oregon border. There are actually two types of redwoods that make up the almost two dozen redwood state and national parks, the giant sequoias which can reach up to 300 feet, and the coastal redwoods, which are actually the record holders for tallest trees on our planet topping out at 360 feet tall! If you want to check out the tallest of these mammoths, make sure to visit Prairie Creek Park. However, when you stand next to any of these ancient beauties, you will be amazed how tiny you feel whether they're a two hundred or three hundred footers. For any nature buff, the redwoods are a definite bucket-list item.
