Royal Caribbean's New Ship, Odyssey of the Seas Will Embrace New and Exciting Bounderies.


The newest ocean liner from Royal Caribbean to sail the high seas will feature what's being billed as the largest indoor activity space at sea and a double-decker pool. 

More details have been released for the Odyssey of the Seas, Royal Caribbean's "next-generation" ship that is scheduled to lift anchor a year from now and make its world premiere in North America. 

One of the Odyssey's stand-out features is the SeaPlex, which can be configured to become an interactive arcade, full-sized sports court, bumper car attraction, glow-in-the-dark laser tag and sailing circus with a flying trapeze. 

Augmented reality walls and floors create immersive experiences for VR games that can be played individually or in groups.


The ship's two-level pool deck will feature open-air, resort-style pools, whirlpools, hammocks and shady shelters. 

Some of Royal Caribbean's most popular attractions -- the surf simulator FlowRider, skydiving simulator RipCord by iFly and North Star glass capsule -- also return aboard the Odyssey. 

And trampoline experiences go high-tech on the SkyPad with the addition of VR headsets that teleport users to another time, place or planet.

Odyssey of the Seas will be sailing out of Rome into the Eastern Mediterranean. 

Odyssey will be a game changer with a lot of brand-new ideas, just as Oasis class was a real game changer.

The first Quantum Ultra class ship to call North America its home, will sail six- and eight-day itineraries from Fort Lauderdale, with calls to Aruba, Curacao, and CocoCay, leaving Bayonne between April and October.


In the spring, it will sail back to Rome for seven- and nine-night sailings in summer 2021 and then come back to Fort Lauderdale.


In addition to the routes the focus will be on kids. People love new ships and Odyssey, in particular, will be very attractive to the family and the intergenerational markets.


To meet the demand, Royal Caribbean is working on a major makeover to its entire children’s program, which will relaunch on Oasis with all kinds of new features for kids.

Included will be The Play Place, a room with climbable creations, a workshop area for art and science projects, and a tech studio; an area called The Arena where there will be competitive sports and games; The Hangout with video games; and a revamped Adventure Ocean babies program, with lots of interactive and learning play and music, and Adventure Ocean Junior space (for 3-5 year olds).

The biggest change, though, will be the teen area, which will include a secret Speakeasy entrance. It won’t have a sign; it will be a secret place, to get in, you have to know where it is. Teens also will have a private outdoor deck and a new arcade lounge with arcade games teenaged guests have suggested.

 A three-night cruise is a great thank-you for a company to reward their staff  and the cost is not that different from a holiday party.


Just dare yourself to try it. Say, ‘Boss, are you doing anything special for your employees this year?’ And let him answer. Then say, ‘Maybe they’d be interested in a weekend cruise.


Businesses that have offered a three-night cruise for employees and their guests, it has created incredible loyalty to their employer.

High-speed Train Is Expected to Go From Portland to Vancouver in Just Two Hours.

An idea for a new train line may get you from Portland to Vancouver in less than half the time it would take to drive. 

The Cascadia Rail has a proposed project that would connect Portland, Seattle and Vancouver via a high-speed rail network — in just two hours. It’s been in talks for the past year, but last month the Cascadia Rail Summit met outside Seattle to discuss an American pipedream: a true high-speed rail project.

Earlier this year, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced a massive scale-back to the state’s high-speed rail project, which would have connected San Francisco to Los Angeles in less than three hours. (Instead, the project will now focus on 100 miles of track in Central California.)

Conditions are prime to invest in high-speed rail elsewhere on the West Coast.

Millions of dollars of research have poured into the Cascadia Rail project and, according to some, the project is moving faster than any other American high-speed rail effort.

The train is still very much in the theoretical stages and faces several obstacles, like the mountainous geography of Washington state and potential resistance from Canadian leaders in Vancouver.


But it could be America’s most viable option for a high-speed rail network.

“High-speed rail works in Europe, it works in Asia, and it could work here.
