Setting sail into a New Year.

Well as 2018 disappears over the horizon to be replaced by a shiny New Year, I just wanted to wish each and every one of you a Special Christmas and a very prosperous 2019.

The next 12 months see the launch of even more exciting new ships, here is just a flavour of what to expect.

Costa Smeralda

Italian-flavored Costa Cruises debuts its newest flagship and largest vessel to date — the 5,200-passenger Costa Smeralda — in October, for a series of 5- to 7-night Mediterranean sailings.

MSC Bellissima & Grandiosa

The new year introduces a duo of technologically tricked-out ships for MSC Cruises, including the 4,434-passenger MSC Bellissima in March and the 4,880-passenger MSC Grandiosa in November

Celebrity Flora

The Galapagos archipelago is tailor-made for cruise-based exploration, and thanks to Celebrity Cruises’ new Celebrity Flora, you can island-hop here in style.

Sky Princess

Princess Cruises’ 3,660-passenger Sky Princess is unveiled in October, offering a brief run of 7- to 14-night Mediterranean voyages, before moving on for a winter season in the Caribbean.

Spectrum of the Seas

Royal Caribbean is known for treating every new ship as an opportunity to one-up the last.
Next up in June is the 4,246-passenger Spectrum of the Seas.

Scenic Eclipse

River cruise line Scenic isn’t just testing the waters on ocean-bound cruising: It’s positively making a splash with the April debut of its upscale 228-passenger expedition ship, Scenic Eclipse.

MS Roald Amundsen

In July 2019, Hurtigruten sets out to prove that in no way does expedition cruising have to mean roughing it.


It’s not just ocean-going ships making waves in 2019 — AmaWaterways’ 196-passenger AmaMagna will be revolutionizing riverboat design with its expanded shape, measuring roughly twice the width of standard riverboats, at 72 feet wide.
I`ll bid you Au Revoir for now but join me again in the New Year for everything cruise related.
