Royal Caribbean Post Round-Up: April 26, 2020

Lots happened this past week, and I do not want you to miss out on any of the news or helpful posts.  So here is a look back at everything posted here in just the last few days.

Royal Caribbean was busy filing trademarks this week, and perhaps these new applications shed light on what cruising will look like once it resumes.

Most notably, the cruise line filed a trademark for a face mask known as "SEAFACE", as well as another trademark for "EMUSTER".

Trademark applications do not have much information in them, but it stands to reason if Royal Caribbean took the time and money to file for a trademark, there is likely some seriousness to pursuing these concepts.

How Royal Caribbean cut a cruise ship in half

One of the truly incredible engineering feats is when a cruise line cuts a cruise ship in half, adds a new section in the middle, and welds the halves back together. 

While not a common practice anymore, Royal Caribbean endeavored to lengthen its first cruise ship, Song of Norway, in 1977.

Here is the full story of how Royal Caribbean undertook this major (and dangerous) operation.
