This week, Eye on Travel broadcasts from the Crystal Serenity — dry docked at the Lloyd Werft shipyard in Bremerhaven, Germany. We’ll update on the investigation into the crash of Lion Air in Indonesia and what the crash detectives are looking for. Joining Peter is Carolyn Spencer Brown, Editor-in-Chief of CruiseCritic.com, who explains the chess game of cruise ship rebuilds as well as the “small ship revolution” that’s happening now. Tom Wolber, CEO of Crystal Cruises, walks Peter through the often staggering details of the ship’s current refurbishment, which will not only increase the number of luxury suites but also at the same time, reduce the number of passengers on board. Then, Peter Knego, Cruise Journalist and Maritime Historian, discusses the current boom of luxury ships and how the definition of luxury is changing. And Arnie Weissmann, Editor-in-Chief of Travel Weekly, talks about cutting-edge technologies involved in ship design, engineering and the science of dry docks. There’s all of this and more as Eye on Travel broadcasts from the Crystal Serenity in Bremerhaven, Germany.
