2  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / NW passage for Paxer on: July 23, 2014, 11:59:07 am
When I read below,,somehow it contradicts, first extra surprise,,here and there ashore
and bear watching etc and then cultural respect.
As bad as it sounds, the best is right away a nice accident with oil spill and the waters
closed forever. That's the only way to respect the cultural of that areas people as touted further below.

I wonder, what a tourist will do in the middle of a tundra ?



1)A flexible itinerary: Extra “surprise” days are built into the schedule to allow unplanned “calls of the wild” for polar bear-viewing, whale-watching, glacier-cruising, scenic helicopter flights, and/or seeking out the best wildlife and weather on the advice of local specialist guides.

2)New adventures ashore: Crystal will introduce “Wilderness Adventures” that take guests across polar tundra, up ice-strewn fjords, and into scenic coves to explore areas in and near maiden ports-of-call.  Travelers will also be able to respectfully visit the small, remote communities and uninhabited, unscheduled spaces/lands/waterways en route – often with champagne waiting at the other end.  Although some excursions will only be determined “in the moment” based on circumstances and environment, Crystal will spend the next two years planning a plethora of excursions and “Arctic safaris” involving kayaks, Zodiacs, a helicopter, ATVs, fishing, hiking, climbing, golfing at the world’s northernmost nine-hole  course, and even possible camping and/or overnighting away from the ship.  Voluntourism opportunities to help local lands and communities will also be offered complimentarily to guests and crew via the line’s “You Care.  We Care.” program.

3)New enrichment: A 14-person expedition team of experts in a variety of subjects — including a native Arctic guide, scientists, and accomplished wildlife and landscape photographers — will not only provide lectures on subjects such as the science and history of the area, but also offer hands-on seminars and workshops, host dinners with guests, guide wildlife watching from the ship, and accompany excursions, where appropriate.

4)Respect & understanding of the local culture:  Guests will be given a rare opportunity to immerse themselves in the lifestyles of these small and remote communities during port visits, with activities created in partnership with the communities.  Designed to show modern life today in the Arctic, as well as the rich cultural heritage of the region, visits will include demonstrations of local arts and crafts, Arctic sports, traditional drum dancing and throat singing, and tastings of local foods, such as Arctic char and bannock bread.

@ Mike
of course,,just imagine if the US or EU would have made the rejection,,special the US,,an uproar through the world with storming US embassies, if China does that,,all is fine.
May be getting time not to buy too much Chinese goods anymore and manufacture there where the technology came from US and EU !!!!

hi all
may be I get it all wrong,,for me it is not the problem that someone links his/her pictures
to an outside site, what I don,t like is that the hits the picture get on the outside web link are counted as hits on this site. This totally distorts the reality.

hi stan
noticed it here too and asked Ken, he does not know of any linking or software problem
but most probably some other site puts links to the pictures on this site automatic
for whatever reason

stand corrected,,you are right :-)

hi david
to my knowledge MMSI stays same,,is once issued same as IMO for a ship.
What changes is the Call sign

homeport,,only when it changes,,which is not necessarily, but depends on
arrangements between countires and such

Hi Cody

the only thing what is visible to the outside world changes is the Call sign/flag, beside possibly the name/owners/homeport etc but the two latter of course is optional.
Otherwise all ships certificates have to be changed to the new call sign/flag i.e. name
and those are plenty.
on the ship itself also all places where a call sign is shown must be changed, like at the radio station. Also new settings in the AIS/Voyage data recorders/EPIRBS etc
The vitals of a ship stay the same,,like MMSI/IMO no.s
