- 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.
- AP Explains: Why HBO hackers demanded payment in bitcoin
By TALI ARBEL, AP Technology Writer - Tuesday Aug 8, 2017
Bitcoin allows people to buy goods and services and exchange money without involving banks, credit card issuers or other third parties.The currency is popular with libertarians, tech enthusiasts, speculators — and criminals.Rather, the coins are created by users who "mine" them by lending computing power to verify other users' transactions.The shuttered underground e-commerce site AlphaBay required transactions to be done in bitcoin and similar digital currencies.To combat that, AlphaBay had offered digital money laundering to shuffle bitcoin through several accounts before the conversion.Some businesses have jumped on the bitcoin bandwagon amid a flurry of media coverage.A network of tech-savvy users called miners keep the system honest by pouring their computing power into a blockchain, a global running tally of every bitcoin transaction.The bitcoin system was under threat recently when some miners were reluctant to upgrade their systems to improve capacity because it could reduce transaction fees they collect.[...] many individuals, businesses and criminal enterprises consider bitcoin the digital currency of choice, but that could change if any of the alternatives pick up steam.
