(11:27 a.m. EST) -- Luxury cruise line Silversea Cruises has revealed a new culinary enrichment program to debut on its new ship, Silver Moon, in summer 2020. The program, called S.A.L.T. (Sea And Land Taste), will combine immersive food-themed events and experiences onboard and ashore. It's designed in partnership with food journalist Adam Sachs.
Onboard, the program will showcase cooking classes and demos from local chefs and experts, culinary-themed lectures, and one-off dinners and food and wine tastings. To support these efforts, Silver Moon will feature a S.A.L.T. Lab to host culinary events, and a S.A.L.T. restaurant to serve the cuisine of the current cruise region.
In port, passengers can choose to visit wineries and local markets, or dine in restaurants and bars that highlight the area's cuisine -- all as part of Silversea's shore excursion program.
"My mission in this new role is simply an extension of the approach I've always taken as a food and travel writer: to apply an endless curiosity and adventurous appetite to deep-dive explorations of the ingredients, cuisine and rituals of the countries and communities we visit," said Sachs, a three-time winner of the James Beard Journalism Award and the former editor-in-chief of Saveur Magazine.
"There's no better -- or more enjoyable -- way to engage and understand the world than through the flavors and stories of its food and wine culture and the people and personalities behind it."
Once the program rolls out on Silver Moon, Silversea will evaluate whether to expand the culinary enrichment to other ships in its fleet.
Cruise Critic will be previewing the new program later this month. Stay tuned for our coverage.

Good Judicial News For Carnival Corporation To Resume Cruising

(12:25 p.m. EDT) -- One possible hurdle for Carnival Corporation to resume sailing in 2020 has been cleared by a federal judge.

Last week, U.S. District Judge Patricia Seitz had indicated she would require 60 days' notice prior to any Carnival Corporation vessel entering U.S. waters. The company is currently on probation over the illegal dumping of contaminated oil waste involving Caribbean Princess in 2016. Carnival Corporation has been in an environmental compliance program since 2017.

That ruling would have dramatically affected Carnival's attempts to restart cruising from the United States following the industry's shutdown as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Alaskans Losing Most from Cruise Ban, U.S. Federal Maritime Commission Report Says

(5:50 p.m. EDT) -- A report issued by U.S. Federal Maritime Commissioner Louis E. Sola concluded that, "when considered on a per capita basis, there may not be another state in the Nation paying as high a cost from passenger ships not sailing than Alaska."

The latest in a series of in-depth assessments into the impact of the cruise industry's shutdown on the U.S economy, the report notes that the cancellation of the entire Alaskan cruise season because of the COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected Alaskans, as many state towns are heavily dependent on cruise tourism.

"While tourism benefits all our Northwestern states, it is one of three pillars of t

Royal Caribbean Lays Out New Guidelines for Quantum of the Seas Cruise Ship Return in Singapore

(12:15 p.m. EDT) -- As Royal Caribbean gears up for a restart in Asia in December, the line has released several infographics outlining changes passengers will see on its ship in that region.

Quantum of the Seas will start sailing from Singapore on December 1, at half capacity with only passengers who live in the country and on "Ocean Getaways", or cruises to nowhere. While Royal Caribbean Group has a partial interest in TUI Cruises, a German line that has also resumed cruising, the sailing could mark the first Royal Caribbean ship to welcome back passengers worldwide; the line has canceled all U.S. sailings through November 30 and is await
