This week’s broadcast of Peter Greenberg Worldwide comes from the new Norwegian Bliss sailing out of Miami, Florida. As the U.S./North Korea summit gets closer, Peter reports on one of the unexpected, funny and fascinating travel components involved. In fact, it could be a major stumbling block during summit negotiations—who will pay for Kim Jong-un’s $6,000 a night hotel suite? (And who might cover the mini-bar charges!)–not to mention how will the North Korean leader travel to Singapore? (Hint: He can’t. Take a slow moving heavily armored train…and there are no North Korean planes that have the range to fly to Singapore nonstop). Joining Peter is Andy Stuart, President and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line, on the little known Jones Act and how it impacts cruising and your choices of ports. Then, Frank Del Rio, President and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, shares where the idea to have a double-deck high race track on Norwegian Bliss was hatched. And a look at the rapidly changing behavioral and age stats of cruise ship passengers from Tom Steighorst of Travel Weekly. There’s all this and more as Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from NCL’s Norwegian Bliss.
