The sinking of Costa Concordia Cruise in italy!

The Costa Concord Cruise sunk on 13th January 2012 due to running into rocks that resulted the cruise to roll spectacularly on its side.

Costa Cruises boss Pier Luigi Foschi accused the Captain of making an “unapproved, unauthorized” deviation in course & sailing too close to a nearby island in order to show the ship to locals.

The captain blames the disaster on rocks which were not on his chart.

Six people died and at least 16 are missing after the Costa Concordia’s hull was torn open on Friday 13th.


India’s luxury trains!


Are you looking for a new experience? Check out one of the most luxurious trains in the world right in India. India is one of the exquiste places in the world!

  

If you feel confused on which train to pick DON’T! because while looking for this luxurious train I’ve stumble on this site, which basically describe the itenarary, interior and route of the trains avilable in India. Seriously, this is one trip I really woud like to take, however a7es yabeelha yam3a!

However, I’ve never tried out this site so I probably would recommend you to use this site and read about the trains available but make the actual booking with a local travel agent to avoid any fraud. If you tried out this site please give us your feedback please.

PS. The picture of the train is called the Golden Chariot

Cruise for the summer-Royal Caribbean

 

I personally have tried the Royal Caribbean cruise, it was one of my favourite trips. Even though, the trip I took was 4 years ago, I truly would like to do it again soon! Royal Caribbean is amazing because it accommodates both kids and adults. The atmosphere is both romantic and fun!

Features: ** Not all ships have same features they vary**

  • Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.
  • Johnny Rockets.
  • Kids Playhouse, Freedom Class has the biggest for kids.
  • Dream Works, you have to check the time and which ship it provides Dream Works characters.
  • Ice skating ring.
  • Boxing ring. 
  • Royal Promenade – it’s Main Street U.S.A., right in the middle of the ocean.

Prices:

  • Their prices are reasonable around $1500 per person.
  • Food and acomadation are fully paid for the entire trip.
  • There are certain restaurants thay you have to pay extra.
  • Transporation to and from the ship are not included.
  • Compare prices between you travel agent or online.

Tips:

  • Choose your cruise route based on the ships. For example the Freedom Class is better for a trip with your kids. If you’re a couple then Voyager of the Sea is best for you.
  • Their ice cream machine is Yummy! (the one which has only vanilla and chocolate)
  • Don’t take alot of excursion (trips with group, something like a tour offshore), because sometimes you would like to explore the city alone. Alothough, I highly recommend excursion for Rome, if you are a first timer, so you can exlpore the historic side of Rome.

Dinner Cruise: Bateaux Dubai

We published a post in New Year about things to do in Paris; one of the things was enjoying a delicious dinner on a boat ride across the seine river. LINK.

I found a similar concept in Dubai. Apparently, Al Minsaf boat (Bateaux Dubai) was built after the example of the French ‘Seine-design’ and is specially intended for the flat water of Dubai creek.

During the luxuious à la carte four-course menu on this floating restaurant, the enormous windows guarantee an unforgettable view of the old and new architecture of the coast of this Arabic emirate, and through the glass roof, the oriental stars shine down.
