December 1, 2022 – Cyber Monday isn’t just for electronics!  Potential vacationers broke a Carnival Cruises Cyber Monday record for bookings, purchasing 50 per cent  more tickets than 2019’s pre-pandemic shopping day.

The cruise line announced the record bookings on Tuesday, November 29th.

The company cited a successful launch campaign of the new Carnival Celebration which visited Grand Turk recently and the three additional ships joining the fleet over the next 18 months, as major ticket pushers.

“The Cyber Monday sale activity showed consumer demand across the fleet, and we were particularly pleased with the booking activity for Carnival Venezia’s new year-round service from New York, and our new extended six-month program for Carnival Magic out of Norfolk,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.

“Our very successful naming ceremony for Carnival Celebration on November 20 and all the media coverage it generated clearly kept Carnival top of mind as vacationers got started on their holiday shopping yesterday.”

They say the pent-up demand for cruising has manifested in multiple ways in 2022, as Carnival was the first major cruise line to have its entire fleet back in operation and it now has more rooms than it was sailing in 2019.

December 1, 2022 – The 2022 Atlantic Hurricane Season has come to an end after 14 named storms. Two of these developed into major hurricanes, Hurricanes Fiona and Ian.  Still the death toll was over 300 and damage costs are nearing $55 billion.

The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) described the Season as one of the most unique. The pause in storms that occurred during the season was a rare occurrence that scientists believe was due to lowered atmospheric moisture and increased wind shear over the Atlantic Ocean.

“The 2022 seasonal activity fell within NOAA’s predicted ranges for named storms and hurricanes in both our pre-season outlook and updated outlook,” said the lead hurricane forecaster at NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, Matthew Rosencrans.
