The cruise lines have been busy since my last Cruise Biz Buzz update. In a nutshell: two cruise lines (Norwegian Cruise Lines and Princess Cruises) are running Pinterest contests; and most of the cruise lines I follow have done a great job tweeting and posting Facebook updates from the ships while in port. Take a look…

Keel Ceremony

Princess Cruises just made waves last week with the float out of Royal Princess (read about that here) and now Princess Cruises announces the name of their next cruise ship will be Regal Princess during the today’s keel laying ceremony, which marks the start of construction.

Fresh Catch of the Day on Paul Gauguin

A unique feature of Paul Gauguin Cruises is their ability to provision the ship with local products if price, quality, and trade allows. I love this photo …. having had the opportunity to meet Food and Beverage Manager Stephane, I can tell you he drives a hard bargain and I suspect that the tuna will be amazing. Read about my trip in Tahiti and French Polynesia here.

 Top Videos

I am excited to link to this video from my hometown news program at KTLA.

Crystal Cruises’ Captain Birger Vorland was the subject of a feature on KTLA’s tv show, “Career Day.” The segment was shot while Capt. Birger served as VP, Nautical Operations for Crystal — just months before he decided to go back to sea as Master, Crystal Serenity.

And then …

just when you could not get enough Crystal Cruises news, check out their new branding video. The video might be a tad-bit corporate but I don’t get bored looking at their beautiful ships.

Buzz Stop

As I like to say, “the buzz stops here.” If you see some interesting cruise news online, make sure to let me know.

Have you seen some cruise buzz I should know about? Remember, I am counting on you to help me find it. If you see something on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, LinkedIn, YouTube or who-knows-what new social network, leave me a comment with a link so I can add it to the Cruise Biz Buzz roundup.
