You Heard It First From Rainbow Travel

Your next Holland America cruise will end with a chocolate surprise dessert parade

Your next Holland America cruise will end sweetly with a chocolate surprise dessert parade.

Chocoholics will tell you there's no such thing as too much chocolate — dark, light, milk, nut-filled, they like them all.

The cruise line’s event takes place after dinner on the final cruise night. The sweet finish fills the lounges and bars of the Promenade Deck with a parade of servers bearing trays of sweet treats.

They march through the rooms for nearly an hour, offering a variety of bite-size chocolate desserts on silver trays.

The chocolate surprise menu includes chocolate cones with lemon curd, bittersweet chocolate and butter cream, double chocolate cupcakes, dark chocolate hazelnut pops, milk chocolate raspberry tarts, chocolate macaroons with Grand Marnier, chocolate-dipped marshmallows and caramel puffed rice treats with chocolate sauce.

The chocolate surprise parade takes place fleetwide and caps the line’s program to add tempting selections to the dessert menu in its restaurants.

WestJet's Swoop set to scoop air travellers looking for low ticket prices.

Swoop — WestJet's low-cost carrier set to launch in June 2018 — will get travellers into seats for cheap prices, but expect to pay for any extras.

You are paying for a seat so, flexibility, convenience, comfort features, if you want extra legroom and so forth, it is unbundled, you'll be paying for those extras.

Other extras travellers will have to pay for include things like checking baggage, being able to board first and choosing a seat.

When it does start, Swoop will join other low-cost carriers in the Canadian market, including existing carriers Enerjet and Flair Air (formerly NewLeaf) and Jetlines, which aims to launch next year.

Swoop's model will be similar to ultra-low cost carriers in the U.S.

At this time destinations are unknown, but probably only the major Canadian cities will initially be served.
