Porthole Cruise News Briefs – September 16, 2016

  • The Strand Cruise, Myanmar’s luxury river operator, is welcoming music lovers aboard a 4-night cruise over Valentine’s Day 2017, featuring live performances by artists from the Opéra de Paris and Orchestre de Paris and France Musique radio presenter Elsa Boublil. Pieces performed include Brahms’ quintet for clarinet and strings, and the theme from the film The Mission for oboe and strings, as well as a Mozart recital with the quintet for clarinet and strings and string quartet in G major. There will also be surprise activities with the musicians during the day.
  • Edie Rodriguez, Crystal River Cruises CEO and president, will be joining guests aboard Crystal Mozart for a 10-day Thanksgiving voyage down the Danube for a Christmas markets cruise. The special event marks the first time Crystal has offered a President’s Cruise on anything other than one of its ocean-going ships.
  • Ultra-luxury line Silversea has appointed a new CEO, Roberto Martinoli, a member of the board since 2013. Based in the company’s Monaco headquarters, Martinoli will report directly to Executive Chairman Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio.
  • As part of its Eco-Smart Cruising program, Norwegian Cruise Line has installed gas scrubber technology in the exhaust system of Norwegian Jewel. The five scrubbers — one per engine — can reduce sulfur emissions up to 99 percent and particulate emissions up to 85 percent. That translates to 1,500 tons of sulfur oxide over years to come.
