This week’s broadcast of the Cruise Radio News Briefs starts with the news that a research team at the University of California, Irvine, has issued a report saying that the global sea level could rise by as much as 2 feet by the end of the century as a result of man-made climate change. A similar study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in May of this year said that by 2100, sea levels could rise by a whopping 23 feet. This would have a drastic effect on shorelines around the world, including the Great Lakes region.

4. A federal judge has rejected the CDC’s request to delay the lifting of health and safety restrictions on the cruise industry. This means that the Conditional Sailing Order, which sets out the route that cruise lines should follow in returning cruises, will become a non-binding guideline rather than a binding rule. Judge Stephen Merriday, who denied the motion, called the order an unreasonable, unprecedented and harmful use of government power.
5. Princess Cruises has released more details about its 2023 Alaska cruises. The Majestic Princess, which will depart from 25. July to 26. leaving Seattle in September for seven-night cruises, has released new details on onboard dining, entertainment, spa and fitness, and casino.
