- Cold rush: Larger fleet sails for Alaskan waters
By David Swanson - Friday May 26, 2017
According to a forecast recently released by Cruise Lines International Association Alaska, the state is headed for a record number of cruise visitors in 2017.“It brings our ship count to seven this year, creating a 10 percent increase in our overall Alaska capacity,” says Beth Bodensteiner, senior vice president, revenue management for Holland America Line.With new ships of all sizes, new cruise lines, and new itineraries on the horizon, the 49th state is suddenly a hot tourism destination once again.Brimming with wildlife, native cultural heritage and active adventures, some of America’s most rugged, untamed scenery is found in the 49th state.Shore excursions invite cruisers to catch and cook their own fish, head onto glaciers for ice-climbing expeditions, or meet Alaskan huskies at a sled dog camp.[...] the couple booked a cruise with Royal Caribbean aboard Explorer of the Seas, a ship that carries 3,284 passengers at double-occupancy, currently the largest sailing the Inside Passage.[...] Explorer of the Seas still took them to some of Alaska’s most spectacular scenery, three key ports, and journeyed through Tracy Arm, a fjord plugged by the Sawyer Glacier.While the ease of jumping onto a cruise itinerary is perhaps one reason Alaskan tourism is growing, Jillian Simpson, vice president of the Alaska Travel Industry Association, attributes the state’s tourism growth primarily to the strong U.S. economy.People may not feel as comfortable traveling overseas, but Alaska is considered a safe destination compared to other global destinations.“When I first started covering cruises 20-some years ago, Alaska was a white-glove experience,” suggests Carolyn Spencer Brown, editor of the popular website Cruise Critic.Quest will embark on its inaugural voyage June 26, while a sister ship, National Geographic Venture, is under construction to debut in June 2018, also sailing Alaskan waters.Rather than heading out on the typical Mediterranean or Caribbean circuit for a cruise ship’s usual inaugural season, the 164,600- gross-ton mega-ship will sail straight to Alaska, marking the first time one of the major lines has brought a brand-new ship to the Inside Passage.While Norwegian Bliss will offer seven-day itineraries out of Seattle on the standard Ketchikan-Juneau-Skagway route, other cruise lines are entering or re-entering the market over the next two years, selling more unusual voyages.The longer itineraries are noteworthy for stops in offbeat British Columbia ports, such as Prince Rupert, Klemtu, and Alert Bay, and the ship sails into Misty Fjords and Kenai Fjords, passages that larger ships can only offer as a shore excursion.Ship cabins, like airline seats, are a constantly expiring product, so cruise lines will reduce fares for sailings that aren’t filling.In Skagway, Princess passengers will be treated to Puppies in the Piazza, an opportunity to interact with the next generation of Iditarod sled dog champions.[...] Princess Cruises’ new Cook My Catch program offers fishing excursions — bring your salmon or halibut catch back on board for the culinary team to prepare at dinner.[...] although fares are decidedly higher than mainstream lines, they include noteworthy extras, such as shore excursions and activities, that aren’t included in the big-ship fares.Seeking out smaller harbors and sheltered bays, Uncruise Adventures offers 7- to 21-day trips on its seven ships, the largest of which accommodates just 88 guests.Outfitted with kayaks, paddle boards, snorkeling gear and Zodiac boats, the Lindblad ships have a shallow draft, allowing access to coastal areas that are off-limits to traditional cruise ships.
- WGN America Lands Crime Dramas ‘100 Code,’ ‘Pure’ and ‘Shoot the Messenger’

- Tuesday Aug 8, 2017
The network has secured the U.S. rights for three crime-focused shows — “100 Code,” “Shoot the Messenger,” and “Pure” — which will join the previously announced Anna Paquin-fronted “Bellevue” to add to the network’s stash of “primecrime” programming.When a high school hockey star wrestling with his gender identity goes missing and all signs point to foul play, Detective Annie Ryder (Anna Paquin) must unravel all the pieces to this gripping mystery before her own life falls apart.A gritty political-crime thriller centering on the complex relationships between crime reporters and the police, “Shoot the Messenger” follows Daisy Channing (Elyse Levesque), a young reporter trying to balance a messy personal life with a burgeoning career. Things begin to go sideways for Daisy when she witnesses a murder she thinks is gang related, only to find herself slowly drawn into an interconnected web of criminal and illicit sexual activity that reaches into the corridors of corporate and political power.With help from her editor Mary Foster (Alex Kingston), co-worker Simon Olenski (Lucas Bryant), and lead homicide detective Kevin Lutz (Lyriq Bent), Daisy uncovers a cover-up so scandalous it could bring down the government.“Shoot the Messenger” is produced by Jennifer Holness and Victoria Woods for Hungry Eyes Film & Television Inc. in association with CBC Television and ITV Studios Global Entertainment.Inspired by true events, “Pure” is the journey of Noah Funk-newly elected Mennonite pastor-who is determined to rid his community of the scourge of drugs and its nefarious ties to a transborder smuggling alliance with ruthless Mexican cocaine cartels. NY, “Justified” as Detective Bronco Novak; and Oscar and Golden Globe Nominee Rosie Perez (“Search Party,” White Men Can’t Jump) as DEA Agent Phoebe O’Reilly.Developed by Academy Award winner Bobby Moresco (Crash, Million Dollar Baby), “100 Code” stars Dominic Monaghan (“Lost,” Lord of the Rings Trilogy) as New York Detective Tommy Conley and the late Michael Nyqvist (John Wick, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) as the by-the-book Swedish detective Mikael Eklund.

- Covered California premiums to rise 12.5 percent in 2018
By Catherine Ho - Tuesday Aug 1, 2017
The roughly 1.4 million Californians who buy health insurance through the state exchange Covered California will see their premiums increase by an average of 12.5 percent next year.Covered California, which was created under the Affordable Care Act and is in its fourth year of operation, announced the proposed 2018 prices on Tuesday. 12.5 percent is the average increase statewide; several Bay Area counties will see smaller increases.Covered California is the state-run exchange through which consumers who receive ACA subsidies can buy health insurance.All 11 insurance companies that sold plans on the exchange last year are returning in 2018 — notable because insurers have been exiting exchanges in other states, leaving consumers in some counties without a single health insurer option.Though Covered California is considered one of the most stable exchanges in the country, it is not immune to the uncertainty caused by congressional Republicans and the Trump administration’s push to repeal the ACA.The legislative repeal is stalled for now, but Trump has repeatedly said his administration will halt the payment of a critical stream of federal money that currently goes to insurance companies to reimburse them for the high cost of covering the lowest income consumers.For the first time, Covered California — which negotiates directly with insurance companies to estalish agreed-upon rates — is allowing insurers to propose two sets of rates for one of the most commonly bought health plans on the exchange, known as the silver plan.
