The Lines International Association (CLIA) is the industry flag waver for the cruise lines. They say that a couple dozen ships are getting ready to sail. Some are really exciting and worth a look. Why not pick one of these to speak on?
NCLs Norwegian Getaway
The Norwegian Getaway was built in Papenburg, Germany, a center of the art of ship-building fore a very long time. The Getaway has some unique “amusement park” attractions.
How about a magic-inspired “Illusionarium,” a Grammy Museum and a theater showcasing the Broadway musical “Legally Blonde?” How about a three-story sports complex with two swimming pools, five waterslides, a ropes course and a zip wire? The NCL ship was ship was docked in New York for five days to act as a party boat for the Super Bowl. People paid big bucks to travel -0- nautical miles. NCL sold the time to Anheuser-Busch. A company called InBev transformed it into the Bud Light Hotel.
