Quotes

"We would also expect higher revenues in the number of ships (to be built)" Kono added, saying Tsuneishi has already generated P250 billion in revenues
...operating earnings, which were nearly 70 percent higher than last July and August," said SCPA President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Newsome. "Over the next several months, we will be watching the development of vessel sharing agreements and evaluating the impacts they will have on our FY2015 volumes."
...Those who cruise by themselves often are forced to pay nearly double the per-person rate non-solos pay. (Cruise lines call this fee the "single supplement.) NCL's newest ships in particular have bucked that trend, adding funky solo cabins and solo lounges for those cruising alone. Quantum of the Seas has 28 solo cabins, which are fairly large (119 square feet) compared with other solo cabins. We love the inclusion of a standard-size bathroom and roomy balcony (12 have this feature), which is not typical when it comes to single-cabin options."
"TIR Training, as part of an educational charity, believes that it is very important to invest in the education of people within the UK. We see Business on the Move as an exciting way of engaging with young people and promoting careers within the logistics sector. We are delighted to be involved.”"
