Cold Canadian air had everybody bundling up to keep warm. For those of us who sell cruises and vacations in warm and wonderful places, the weather was a positive. People start planning their vacations when it’s coooold outside!
We have a few holiday travelers who soon will be departing for their escapes in the Caribbean, Hawaii and Mexico. They can be certain that the temperature will be in the 1980s, and the beach sand will be white and inviting. In their destinations they will find holiday decorations with a tropical flair suitable for Hawaiian shirts and Bermuda shorts.
Tonight we will hear news about the biggest cruise ship ever built—Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas, and get a first-hand account of its debut activities in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. We’ll report more on this tomorrow.
