Nudist Cruise



Hello followers!

Do you know that there are nudist cruises?

Few nudist cruises take place throughout the year, but when one comes immediately attracts attention.
This is the case of the nudist cruise that began on 9 February from the port of Fort Lauderdale (Florida) with 3000 passengers. This cruise sailed through the Panama Canal during Valentine's Day, the port from Mexico and Costa Rica and finally returned to Fort Lauderdale.

After leaving Fort Lauderdale, and being in international waters, the captain announced over the loudspeaker that all passengers were anxious: "Ladies and Gentlemen, please feel free to undress when you want."

The trend is that this type of cruise is increasing in the coming years. In fact slowly cruises are increasingly focusing on a particular theme. In Europe this practice is still not as popular, but in the U.S. there is an extensive variety of theme cruises, from gastronomic cruises, fashion, business, film buffs…


What kind of passenger embarks on a nude cruise?

Any passenger, young, old, etc... However, the price of this type of cruise is higher than the conventional. So, its passengers tend to have a slightly higher purchasing power than normal. Contrary to what many people think, the passengers on this cruise are not singles, as we explained in a previous post, this kind of cruises have their own theme in popular singles cruises. It is estimated that about 80% of the passengers who embarked in the Carnival Freedom are engaged couples. 


What is the procedure on board?
Although you can navigate completely naked, there are certain aspects that for hygiene will have always be taken into account. Towels play a very important factor in this aspect. in the rooms and in public passengers must sit on a towel, and they will have to get dressed in the main driving room and when they arrive at the port. 


What do you think about this? Would you like to do this kind of cruise? 

See you soon :)

There are many ways do a cruise and not always on board large boats with great detail because you can sail on a freighter. Yes, you heard right! There are various companies that offer this type of trips, obviously don't have many amenities like a conventional cruise, but most importantly keep the charm of traveling to different countries of the world, from the Mediterranean to India and even around the world.


The spaces of the cargo ships are allocated to passengers are limited but on the boat you will have your cabin with television. There is also a library, cinema and sometimes, gym and pool.

The facilities are shared with the crew and therefore daily you live it with them. Not many passengers can go on this type of ship, estimated between 2 and 12, so the treatment is very familiar.

As the main objective of these ships is to transport goods on their decks there are large numbers of containers, machinery, cranes ... and no teaching animation teams doing salsa or pool games.

The ports that are visited are industrial ports and scales are not short. Trips are ideal for people who have time and you like adventure because both the duration and the itinerary may vary. Trips are usually between two weeks to three or four months.



If you are motivated and interested in traveling in a different way there are agencies like Maris or Freighter World Cruises offer this type of cruise.

On these cruises the number of men and women must be balanced, looking for 50% of each or at most a distribution between 40% and 60%, regardless favor of one or the other. If there are more entries in one of the two sexes and overcome these figures remain on the waiting list until more people sign up the other sex and the proportion indicated range, being well communicated to applicants.

WARNING: These are not just for dating cruises, these are to make friends while you travel, and if then arise more, depends on each person. The important thing is to meet people, make friends in a great trip, and if it found an unforgettable person who ends up being our partner, great.

History

Good morning followers!

We consider it's important to talk about the history of cruising, to introduce it we'er going to talk about it in this posts. We don't want to bore anyone, therefore it will be short.

ç

The beginning of the cruises was in 1835 when Shetland Journal was published a sea trip around Scotland, Iceland and Feroe Island. The first transatlantic cruise was in 1840, it started in Liverpool to Boston.

But it was not until 1947 when Cunar built the first pleasure cruise, it was called "Green Goddess". Since then the cruises tourism indusry opened a new way to travel with luxury, comfort and design.



That's all! Did you know the origin of the cruises?

Titanic will cross the seas again

Hello followers, we're here again :)


We're sure that everybody become familiar with this famous movie. It isn't?


The history of the ship that sank while crossing the Atlantic Ocean captivated everyone and made us mourn. We're sure that many of you would have liked to be there (of course, before sinking).

Now it's possible! The Australian magnate Clive Palmer plans to build a copy of the famous transatlantic, which will travel in its inaugural trip from England to New York.

A replica of the legendary Titanic, Titanic II, will cross the Atlantic from England to New York in 2016. The new boat will be as luxurious as the original Titanic, but of course will have XXI century technology and the latest navigation and safety systems.


The original Titanic was nearly 270 meters in length and 53 in height, weighing approximately 40,000 tons and a capacity of over 2,200 people on board. On the night of 14 April 1912 the ship struck an iceberg south of the coast of Terranova and sank in less than three hours, killing more than 1,500 people, including passengers and crew.

One single difference:
The only difference between the original and the "Titanic II" is that the coal engine in the first model will be replaced for a diesel engine.


The Titanic II will have 840 rooms and nine decks, like its predecessor, as well as having "the latest bells and whistles, such as gyms and swimming pools on board, library and high-class restaurants." According to Palmer, the inaugural trip is scheduled for the end of 2016 from England to North America.
