(3:20 p.m. EST) -- Cruisers sailing with Oceania Cruises will soon have a delectable new culinary to try. The line is partnering with California-based, small-batch brand Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream to bring the company's decidedly-adult take on ice cream to Oceania's six-ship fleet in February. 
"Oceania Cruises is always seeking to present the widest array of unique and intriguing culinary experiences," said Bob Binder, president & CEO of Oceania Cruises. "From the extravagance of the six-course Dom Perignon Experience to our new offering of Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream, our guests can always expect the unexpected."
As part of the partnership, Oceania will get its very own signature flavor, "Regatta Royale," onboard its fleet. The new ice cream will feature bittersweet dark fruity chocolate from California-based TCHO Chocolate alongside orange zest and smoked sea salt.
Along with Regatta Royale, Humphrey Slocombe Ice Cream will bring 13 of its signature creations to sea for the first time, including the best-selling "Secret Breakfast" (bourbon ice cream and cornflake cookies); "Toast & Jam" (brown-butter ice cream, jam swirl and pieces of brioche); and "Harvey Milk & Honey Graham" (raw Pacific Northwest blackberry honey and house-made graham crackers).
All of Humphry Slocombe's ice cream flavors available at sea will be made fresh daily.
The new ice cream debuts in February aboard Marina and Riviera, and will roll out fleetwide by May.
Oceania's signature flavor will be previewed at all four of Humphry Slocombe's locations in San Francisco, Oakland and Berkley for the entire month of January.

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
