Black is Beautiful: A winning Combination

Air New Zealand has revealed the world’s largest commercially operated aircraft to be painted completely black. The new livery highlights the airline’s long-time sponsorship of the country’s recently crowned World Champion All Blacks rugby team.

All Blacks team players Kieran Read and Andy Ellis ceremonially led the one-of-a-kind Boeing 777-300ER aircraft out of Boeing’s paint hangar facility in Seattle last Friday night.
“It’s a sensational looking aircraft and will really turn heads at airports around the world,” said No. 8 loose forward Kieran Read.
“I reckon they should paint all their planes like this!”
All Blacks halfback Andy Ellis said “I always feel a huge amount of pride when I pull on the All Blacks jersey with the silver fern to represent my country on the rugby field and to see that replicated similarly on something this big is just awesome.”
According to Boeing, painting the aircraft took just over a week, two days longer than it normally takes to paint a 777 aircraft. 185 gallons (700 litres) of chrome-free primer and paint was used and involved a total of 14 painters working in shifts 24 hours a day.
“It was, without a doubt, one of the most challenging paint jobs we’ve ever done, but the paint team was up for the challenge and the results are absolutely outstanding.” said Jeff Klemann, Boeing vice president Everett Delivery Center. Contrary to popular belief, the black paint won’t cause the aircraft to heat up a great deal. In fact, the more than 330 individual TV screens inside the aircraft create more additional heat than the all black paint job.
By mid next year Air New Zealand will have six aircraft featuring the all black livery including two Airbus A320s and three Beech 1900D turbo-props.

Carnval Inspiration launches year-round cruises from Long Beach

The 2,052-passenger Carnival Inspiration has launched year-round short cruises from Long Beach, Calif. Carnival is offering a new choice on this popular itinerary which encompasses three-day cruises departing Fridays to Ensenada and four-day cruises departing Mondays to Ensenada and Catalina Island. Previously, this itinerary was operated by the Carnival Paradise, which has been redeployed to Tampa.

The 70,000-ton Inspiration underwent an extensive multi-million-dollar refurbishment as part of the line’s “Evolutions of Fun” enhancement program and includes such innovations as a WaterWorks aqua park (with water slide, racing slides and a water spray area), a Serenity adults-only retreat and a tropical-themed resort-style main pool area. Carnival Inspiration also has a nine-hole miniature golf course, a 1,080-square-metre spa, a jogging track, and spacious facilities and supervised programming for children in three age groups.

Muppets to Debut on the Disney Fantasy

 

Guests on board the Disney Fantasy will be able to take part in a new interactive adventure game involving the Muppets.  The newest ship in the Disney Cruise Line is filled with “Enchanted Art” and technology designed to bring the guest into the story.  “The Case of the Stolen Show” leads guests around the ship in search of clues to solve a mystery.  In this adventure, Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo and Animal are planning a big stage show, but they discover that their props are missing.  Guests will use a map and special game card to check out pieces of the Enchanted Art to find clues and uncover the whereabouts of the missing props.  Guests will even find a Muppets message board and a Muppet-sized stateroom door on board, containing clues to help solve the crime before curtain time for the big show.  This game, designed for ages nine and up, is self-paced and can be played over and over, as events and endings will change each time.
