Celebrity Cruise Ship Constellation Has Engine Problems Skips Cozumel

The Costa Concordia on its side.

The Costa Concordia on its side.

Normally what happens to a cruise ship is not all that big news … well, except when a cruise ship tips over because the captain got too close to ground to wave good-bye or whatever the story ended up being near Tuscan Island of Giglio, Italy.

The Celebrity Cruise ship Constellation rand into engine trouble … extended their stay in Key West, skipped Cozumel and went to Nassau instead.

This is of interest to me because 11 days from now I will be on that ship. My wife, daughter and out-, um, in-laws will be with me. It’s my next speaking gig – talking Social Media for Cruisers. I am a Local SEO Social Media Marketer in my other life.

Additionally, I have never been to Cozumel but have been to Nassau. Going places I have never been is part of the fun of cruising.

The short is, I hope they get the engine fixed. And no doubt they will.

What I really really hope is that they don’t tip the thing over. That would be kind of exciting to survive, but , nah, I don’t really want to do that.

It would definitely be bad form for Celebrity in the Social Media world. Hmm… maybe I can put that in my talk.

The massive Southampton docks hold several cruise ships

*** FREE webinar on Speaking on Cruise ships Thurs Dec 19 ***

Register here

Our clients in the United Kingdom have good news heading their way. Southampton, is on the western side of England and is a major cruise ship port. Many of our clients prefer not to have to fly to the US to begin their trips. Speakers do have to be flexible as to where they will join the ship. But why not make it way easier without jet lag?

Some of the cruise lines with Southampton departures include Cunard, P&O and Fred. Olsen They all will be departing from Southampton. Speakers need to be alert for the timing of these departures. Unfortunately, most are around this Christmas. there will be 11 different routes form these lines. Durations will range from 10 to 25 days.

The lesson here is to get approved by an agency. THEN you can shop for the destinations and dates you want to go. If you have your four talks in the can, you will be more likely to snag one of these trips. Other lines use Southampton as the take-off point for their Mediterranean season re-positioning back to the Caribbean or other locales. They will be back in the spring to continue their programs.

We post openings as they are available. A word of advice – apply early as many of these popular trip are in demand. Competition among speakers is keen. Jump on it!
