The newly enhanced Oasis of the Seas has returned to Miami after a $165 million renovation that added brand-new amenities and popular Royal Caribbean features to the ship.

Making their Royal Caribbean debut on the Oasis are Portside BBQ, the line's first barbecue joint, and Spotlight Karaoke, a dedicated singing spot with a main stage and two private rooms. The ship now sports passenger favorites like the Ultimate Abyss, the tallest slide at sea; the Perfect Storm trio of waterslides; the Bionic Bar by Makr Shakr, where robotic bartenders mix your drinks; and Music Hall, a two-level live music venue.

The Oasis sails Caribbean voyages from Miami until early May 2020. It then repositions to the New Jersey port of Bayonne, where it will be the largest ship to sail from the area on Bahamas cruises that include Perfect Day at CocoCay, Royal Caribbean's extensively refurbished private island.

Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours has launched the Scenic Eclipse, described as the World's First Discovery Yacht. The ship's godmother, actress Helen Mirren, christened the 228-passenger expedition ship in September.

The Scenic Eclipse features spacious, all-veranda suites with butler service for each passenger. An almost 1-to-1 staff-to-guest ratio ensures personalized service. You'll find 10 dining options, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and the Spa Sanctuary with a gym, yoga and Pilates studio.

To see all Scenic Eclipse departures, including early booking offers and other discounted rates, click here.

The upfront rate includes unlimited beverages, your choice of shore excursions, all gratuities on board and ashore, Wi-Fi and daily entertainment and education programs. Passengers also receive complimentary expedition parkas, water bottles and the use of special polar boots on polar region excursions.

The Scenic Eclipse sails in Antarctica, Iceland, Greenland, Central and South America and more. Discovery leaders provide insights into the destination, and guests can explore by submarine, helicopter, Zodiacs, kayaks, e-bikes and snowshoes.

Scenic also sails river cruises in Europe, Asia and Egypt, and these vacations are similarly all-inclusive. Passengers have several ways to explore riverfront ports. Scenic FreeChoice provides multiple options for sightseeing, from museum visits and wine tastings to hiking and biking. Scenic Enrich presents cultural highlights like a private concert in Vienna. In France, take part in the Scenic Culinaire program, working alongside the ship's chef in an onboard cooking classroom.

Save up to $2,900 per couple on Scenic's European river cruises when you book by December 16.

Carnival has become the first cruise line to be certified as "sensory inclusive" by KultureCity, a nonprofit dedicated to accessibility and inclusion for individuals with sensory needs and invisible disabilities. Hundreds of Carnival staff who interact with guests, including guest services employees and youth counselors, were trained to help passengers with sensory-related questions or needs associated with conditions like autism, Down syndrome, PTSD and more.

At the start of their cruise, passengers can pick up KultureCity sensory bags for the duration of their sailing; these contain items that help calm and manage sensory overload, like noise-canceling headphones and fidget toys. A KultureCity VIP lanyard helps staff identify guests.

KultureCity has helped more than 450 land-based venues like stadiums and amusement parks implement similar measures.

All of Carnival's South Florida-based ships are certified, and the rest of the fleet is slated to be completed by March 2020. The line reports that it has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from families and guests since the program was rolled out to the first vessels in October.



Acclaimed chef Michel Roux Jr. will headline Cunard's first Festival of Food & Wine Cruise on the Queen Mary 2. Departing from Southampton (a port serving London) on June 7, the trans-Atlantic crossing to New York will offer cooking demonstrations, wine pairings and other events led by food and wine experts.

Roux owns Le Gavroche, the first UK restaurant to receive one, two and then three Michelin stars. His father and uncle opened the London spot in 1967, and Roux took over the kitchen in 1991. On the QM2, Roux will host dinners in The Verandah restaurant and a gala meal in the Britannia Grill, in addition to sharing recipes and stories during demos and a Q&A.
