Cruising Chatter / Disney Acquires Genting’s Global Dream from Bankrupt MV Werften
« Last post by Host Mike on November 16, 2022, 08:05:19 PM »
"The cruise line says they expect the passenger capacity to be reduced to approximately 6,000 from the maximum of 9,000 Dream Cruises had announced. Areas such as a large casino will be also redesigned in keeping with Disney’s family-oriented cruises. Crew aboard the ship will be approximately 2,300.

One of the more innovative design changes Disney is discussing is the use of methanol for the ship’s fuel. In a brief statement, the cruise line says the ship “is expected to be among the first in the cruise industry to be fueled by green methanol.” Meyer Turku began construction in July for another new cruise ship for Germany’s TUI Cruises that is designed for methanol operations and in the United States Norwegian Cruise Line is exploring methanol with MAN for future ships and as a retrofit to its current ships."

Cruising Chatter / Re: RCCL SeaPass card to override the on/off control of your cabin A/C

Oh, that's just great. Now my room heats up to 90 degrees when I'm gone & probably takes 3 or 4 hours to cool off again when I return.
We've sailed on some older ships where the AC could hardly cool off the room running 24 hours a day.

Maybe the ships can sell them water instead of buying it? ;D
