The Catamaran is a multi-hulled watercraft that features state-of-the-art facilities such as, two parallel hulls. That Catamaran is a geometry-stabilized craft, and derives its stability from its extra wide beam, rather than a monohull sailboat which has a ballasted keel.

The sea is wedged between Baja California and the mainland Mexico with a sheltered and narrow outline, which results to mostly calm waters, making it an ideal spot for the best scuba diving experience possible.
He concluded by saying, “Our luxury scuba diving tour onboard a luxury catamaran yacht is perfect for people who love the sea. the Sea of Cortez is an amazing place to visit. The warm waters are relatively calm, with high mountains in a distance rise from the bluish-green sea and upwards to the blue sky. It is the perfect place to spend a full day with friends or family. Once below the water, you are freed from gravity, and experience absolute freedom. Guests on our luxury scuba diving tours will get to spot up to 900 different fish species. Gently touch them, sit on the ocean’s floor, or play with the sand, and feel like a true National Geographic explorer of the deep sea. The boat ride to and from the dive site is also a sight to behold, not only because of the amazing natural beauty of the surroundings but because Grey whales and Humpback are often spotted en route, which makes the experience magical.In short, it’s a great body of water to explore, and we’d love it if you would join us for this unforgettable adventure.”

Pioneering Travel Agency Remembers Windrush Generation Heritage

SN Travel celebrates 45 years connecting the UK and the Caribbean

We’re proud of our heritage as one of the pioneers in air travel to the Caribbean from the UK”

— Sandra Dyer

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, August 16, 2018 / — Family-run SN Travel played a key part in helping the Windrush generation return home to the Caribbean to visit their families and are now celebrating their 45th anniversary.

Back during the late 60s and early 70s, the limited plane travel options to the Caribbean on the commercial airlines, despite airlines like early versions of British Airways, Pan-Am and TWA.
SN Travel founder, Lesley Joseph, first chartered a flight to the Caribbean in 1969, responding to demand from the growing number of migrants making the trip to the UK. Joseph soon found himself inundated with requests and inquiries for travel to the Caribbean.

After chartering flights to the Caribbean in time for Christmas, the enquiries kept rolling in and as time went by and flights increased, SN Travel was born and soon found themselves catering to generations of Windrush families, as they do to this day.

“We’re proud of our heritage as one of the pioneers in air travel to the Caribbean from the UK,” says Sandra Dyer, Director at SN Travel. “Providing this vital service for generations, we’ve seen the travel marketplace open up and helped international travel become more accessible and convenient. This is a mission we’re still just as enthusiastic about, 45 years later.”

Having served as a key stepping stone between the UK and the Caribbean since 1973. Specialist Caribbean travel agency, SN Travel, are celebrating their 45th year in business. This event marks much more than a birthday – both for SN Travel itself and the four generations of customers that still use SN Travel for their Caribbean travel requirements.
Whilst today, still operating from their original Stoke Newington travel agency, SN Travel is still dedicated to its specialism in Caribbean holidays, but now also helps connect the UK to other locations, with worldwide holidays, cruises and safari holidays as well as access to tours, events and group holidays.

This Autumn is a great time to visit the Caribbean.

The Dominican Republic is showing substantial growth in bookings this 2018 season”

— Alexandra Baradi

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2018 / — It’s not always possible to choose the perfect time to go on vacation, and if you need to recharge between the months of August and October, the Caribbean is often forgotten. But several of the Caribbean islands are almost completely unaffected by hurricanes and have near perfect weather year-round. For people who like to have the pick of the best restaurants, the best spots on the beach, enjoy not being surrounded by crowds, like interacting with the locals and also love a bargain, then the off-season can be the perfect time to go.

Exceptional villas are the experts on everything to do with the Caribbean and have confirmed that the best three islands to go in the offseason are Barbados, Aruba and The Dominican Republic. Each of these islands has been virtually untouched by extreme weather in recent years. In addition, the NOAA – The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are predicting that the chances of a below-normal hurricane season have increased by 60%.

If you are in need of a vacation over the next couple of months, this is all great news. The three islands of Aruba, Barbados and Dominican Republic are all well worth considering. Of course, before making a booking, the best advice is to ensure that your vacation rental provider has a solid hurricane plan in place and to always buy travel insurance.

Aruba is located south of the hurricane belt making it virtually unheard of to be hit by bad weather. Aruba offers great beaches, great weather and above all great value vacation rentals. Exceptional Villas offers an excellent selection of good value homes to rent on the island. There are direct flight services from throughout the United States with Jet Blue, Delta, American, United Airlines, and Southwest.

Barbados is another island that is largely unaffected by bad weather due to its far easterly location on the Caribbean seaboard. In addition, the east coast of Barbados is quite rocky with many reefs offering the island great protection. The west coast offers a complete contrast with perfect white sandy beaches and calm turquoise waters. The last time a hurricane made landfall on Barbados was 38 years ago. That fact alone makes Barbados the perfect island to visit in the offseason. There are also direct flight services from the United States and Great Britain. Combine that with the fact that all the restaurants, shops and bars remain open year around as well as the incredible accommodation value on offer, this makes Barbados an extremely attractive destination in the low season.

The Dominican Republic has only been affected by one hurricane in every 11 years and because it is such a huge land mass, the chances of bad weather affecting your chosen holiday spot are very slim. Alexandra Baradi, Owner and CEO of Exceptional Villas said that “The Dominican Republic is showing substantial growth in bookings this 2018 season”. It is growing in popularity due to an increased awareness of its beautiful beaches, excellent value, easy access and has an excellent selection of luxury accommodation options. The Dominican Republic is a great late summer vacation spot for families and for couples looking for affordable options.

The cruise industry is flourishing, what’s not to love?

Lee Clarke of Dynama takes a closer look at the stresses and strains of managing a fast growth cruise company and the implications for workforce management

By tapping into the potential of automation and working with the right technology partner, you’ll create a solid foundation for success to embrace the opportunities of the flourishing cruise industry.”

— Lee Clarke, Regional Director, Northern Hemisphere at Dynama

LONDON, UK, August 16, 2018 / — The cruise industry is big business with the number of new entrants and competition rising annually. Latest predictions show that the sector will attract 40 million passengers by 2027 and generate gross revenues of around US$60 billion. The order book is also at an all-time high with 106 new cruise ships expected to be built in the next 10 years.[i] This is excellent news for ambitious cruise companies seeking to tap into new markets. However, with opportunities come a new set of challenges as cruise ships of all size, from the largest luxury liners to the latest more intimate river voyages, compete to attract and retain the best crew and deliver exceptional levels of guest satisfaction.

Five Challenges for growing cruise companies
The cruise industry is very much a people business, inside and out from crew to the passengers they serve. Therefore, choosing the right technology to help manage those people and overcome challenges is essential.

Challenges include:

1) Constant competition – a growing industry means increased competition as existing and new entrants step up their efforts to deliver outstanding service levels to passengers then lure them back for more. Having the right crew in place at the right time is fundamental to passenger satisfaction.
2) How to scale the business without escalating costs – the heat is on to add new crew and ships without costs spiralling out of control and to continue hitting margins. Make flexibility and scalability your new best friends.
3) Eliminating stress through time and cost efficiencies – relying on a disconnected set of manual processes or cumbersome Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems that are too generic or expensive to configure is no longer sufficient. It’s time to ditch the spreadsheets and embrace the benefits of automation to avoid wasted duplicated effort. Why not make life easier for your IT department?
4) Crew and passenger safety – with many more people on board, it’s time to ensure your safety measures are in tip-top condition and meet strict regulatory requirements. This information should be available at the touch of a button.
5) Data security – now that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is here, take steps to avoid costly fines and keep crew and passenger data safe. GDPR isn’t just about finding data and making sure it is secure, it’s about capturing the context of that data and being able to prove that everything is being done to protect your crew and passengers’ personal information at all times.

Get ready for success with the latest workforce management (WFM) solutions
In the rapidly expanding cruise industry, it makes sense to partner with the right technology provider. The most innovative solutions will have automation built into their DNA to help maximize crew talents, make tangible time and cost savings, enhance all-round safety and scale effortlessly as your business grows.

Choose a partner that can provide:
• Automation – when it comes to managing entire fleets of cruise ships manned by thousands of crew around the world, automation is essential. The beauty of modern integrated systems is they capture, in real-time, important information about crew members and activities, the ship they work on and their skills as well as important travel documents like passports and visas – to develop efficient schedules and guarantee the most appropriately skilled and available crew members are in the right place at the right time. This keeps you one step ahead of the competition when it comes to delivering a first-class passenger service

• Flexibility and scalability – the latest automated solutions are innovative, highly scalable and future-proof. They are sophisticated enough to analyse current resource competencies and model for future requirements quickly and efficiently. The can be used to quickly clone existing vessels and positions, making it easy to add new builds to the fleet and manage the wave of new crew required to ensure your expansion doesn’t jeopardise quality

• Managed services – make life easier for the people behind the scenes. Many cruise organizations’ IT departments are often stretched to the hilt with a limited headcount and an equally limited budget that necessitates a ‘do more with less’ culture. Outsourcing your workforce management software to a reliable partner with the bandwidth and know-how to make technology work for you will free up your own internal IT resources to focus on more strategic areas, improve response times, cut down on recruitment and training costs, eliminate expensive upgrade costs and guarantee regular maintenance of your WFM system

• Onboard safety – easy access to critical data facilitates the ability to manage a multi-skilled and often geographically dispersed workforce over time, rank and experience. In addition to vessel familiarity, training requirements and licenses held. This clear visibility of crew compliance and assets ensures standards meet stringent International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulations and minimise the risk of financial penalties through non-compliance of safety legislation

• GDPR readiness – these days, data security is just as important as keeping your crew and passengers physically safe and cruise lines control a lot of personal data – from passengers’ identities, preferences and health requirements to cross-border tax and immigration laws for large workforces.

Fortunately, the latest workforce management solutions can help in various ways. They link seamlessly to your organization’s Active Directory to guarantee the security of all login credentials, the crucial first step to securing crew and passengers’ details. Customer screens can be set up to ring-fence any sensitive data that passengers choose to store with you such as credit card details.

Finally, superior reporting capabilities make it easy to respond quickly and accurately to requests for information from GDPR assessors and provide a valuable audit trail with the hard evidence to aid compliance with GDPR legislation.

It’s time to take control and embrace the challenges and opportunities of today’s flourishing cruise industry. By tapping into the full potential of automation and working with the right technology partner, you’ll create a solid foundation for success.

Photographer Captures Legacy of United States During Artist Residency at Gettysburg Battlefield

Evening Gettysburg Photo by NPAF Resident James Schlett

Sunset Memorial by NPAF Resident James Schlett

I plan to capture the aspects of the “cross-roads” and how the spokes all centered into Gettysburg that made this location a critical one as the site of the three days of battle.”

— James Schlett, NPAF Artist in Residence

GETTYSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA, US, August 15, 2018 / — Nationally acclaimed photographer James Schlett has been selected as the Gettysburg National Military Park Artist in Residence, for August-September. Schlett is a photographer whose visual creativity captures the reflection of history in contemporary context with brutal grace, through photography. His residency will take place Aug 15th, 2018 to Sep 12th, 2018, culminating in a FREE TO THE PUBLIC EVENT at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center, on September 8th, 10am-1pm.

“I plan to capture the aspects of the “cross-roads” and how the spokes all centered into Gettysburg that made this location a critical one as the site of the three days of battle.” said Schlett, of his plans for the residency.

After over 30 years working for the U.S. government, Mr. Schlett discovered his newfound, urgent passion for photography. His photographs have been published in a number of high profile venues such as the Washington Post, Reston Magazine, Fairfax Times, and he has been exhibited in galleries and art shows, and won numerous competitive awards. Of note is that one of his images was displayed in the “Art Takes Times Square” Exhibition in New York City in June 2012.

During his tenure as Artist-in-Residence, Schlett will totally immerse himself in the experience on a 24/7 basis for several weeks. He often uses the first few and last few hours of sunlight to capture the most delicate moments of light, which often provides the best final images. He employees digital imaging to enhance his work with various software packages, in the same way “darkrooms” were used historically.

About the residency, Schlett is fairly vocal in his enthusiasm: “I don't believe there are any other artistic opportunities that compare to this unique program. I welcome this chance to share my images and knowledge with the the park visitors and staff.”

This Artist-in-Residency program is made possible by a joint effort of the Gettysburg Foundation and non-profit The National Park Arts Foundation, with support from the National Park Service. Through a legacy of artists, the program aims to connect visitors and the Gettysburg community to the park in a novel and compelling way, to inspire the preservation of our shared cultural heritage and the immortalizing these great touchstones in American history.

“Gettysburg National Military Park has offered inspiration to artists for more than 150 years,” said Christopher Gwinn, Chief of Interpretation at Gettysburg National Military Park. “The Artist-in-Residence program engages new audiences and tells Gettysburg’s stories in new and compelling ways.”
