National Geographic Quest is a brand-new SHIP TO ALASKA

The US Army Corps of Engineers have physically checked the three bridges over the Cape Cod Canal since the Viking Star made contact with the Buzzards Bay Railroad Bridge last week. They determined that there was nothing amiss and the pole only scraped a small amount of paint. Corps of Engineers spokesman Timothy Dugan says it's possible the ship is higher than stated and that it would have been wise for the pole to have been folded down.

LONG BEACH CRUISE TERMINAL TO BE EXPANDED
Carnival Cruise Line has signed an agreement with landlord Urban Commons and the City of Long Beach, California, to expand the Long Beach Cruise Terminal facility to accommodate larger ships in the future and enhance its terminal operations. The deal will nearly triple the size of Carnival’s current terminal facility from approximately 66,000 square feet to 142,000 square feet.
Carnival has operated the Long Beach Cruise Terminal since 2003 using a partial area of the Geodesic Dome that was the former museum housing Howard Hughes’ “Spruce Goose” attraction. The agreement gives Carnival 100 percent use of the Dome, allowing for larger ships and providing additional space needed to accommodate two-way operations, enabling embarking guests to access the terminal prior to completion of disembarkation.
NEW SHIP TO ALASKA
Lindblad Expeditions’ National Geographic Quest is a brand-new, 100-passenger expedition ship being introduced to Alaska next summer. It is set to launch June 26, 2017 on a Seattle-to-Sitka itinerary exploring the coast of British Columbia and into Alaska’s Inside Passage.
National Geographic Quest will then spend the summer exploring the coves and fjords between Sitka, Glacier Bay National Park, Juneau and Petersburg on Lindblad’s classic ‘Exploring Alaska’s Coastal Wilderness’ route, an eight-day adventure also sailed by the 62-guest National Geographic Sea Lion.
