You don't have to wait until January 2022 to catch a glimpse of Disney Cruise Line's fifth ship Disney Wish. A new Adventures by Disney river cruise excursion in 2021 will get you to the German shipyard, where the ship is under construction, for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour.
Passengers on any of the nine Adventures by Disney cruises on the Rhine River in 2021, can book a full-day excursion from Amsterdam to the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, for $499 per person (including lunch). At the shipyard, a Disney Imagineer will lead a private hard-hat tour and Q&A session.
The eight-day Rhine cruises visit are between Basel, Switzerland and Amsterdam (with an overnight stay) aboard the chartered AmaMora or AmaSiena. The departures for the sailings are late May through August 2021.
Adventures by Disney also announced its expanded European river cruise portfolio for 2021, with 30 sailings along the Rhine, Danube, Rhone and Seine. In addition to cruises geared towards families with kids, the company is also back with adult (age 18 and up) sailings such as Food and Wine and Oktoberfest-themed cruises. There are also holiday sailings that visit Europe's Christmas markets.
Bookings open to the public on January 29 (and to past Adventures by Disney guests on January 27).

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 Cruise Line Trademarks "Tracelet" Wearable Wristband

(12:25 p.m. EDT) -- Royal Caribbean International has filed a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a new device to be called "Tracelet."

The application, which describes the service mark registration for Tracelet as "Rubber or silicone wristbands in the nature of a bracelet," was filed on October 15, 2020 under the subcategory of "cruise ship services."

Given the name, it is not unreasonable to expect Royal Caribbean's new Tracelet to function as a wearable RFID contact tracing device that could be used to mitigate any potential spread of COVID-19 that might occur onboard.

Contact tracing is essential in the fight against COVID-19, allowing po
