BUOYANT CRUISE SHIPS AS MOVIE SETS
New to cruising and want to see what sailing the high seas is like before booking? Turn on Netflix. Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas, one of the world’s largest cruise ships, has a feature role in the new Kristen Bell, Kelsey Grammer and Seth Rogen film, Like Father (pictured). In the film, Bell’s character is left at the altar and ends up on a honeymoon cruise with her estranged father (Grammer).
STANDARD BEDS Cruise lines are cottoning on to the fact we all love a good night’s rest so they’re upping the comfort stakes in the mattress department. Lines such as Princess have the award-winning Princess Luxury Bed, and Oceania Cruises has the Prestige Tranquility Bed. But for possibly the best slumber you can ever have consider booking into the Regent Suite on Regent Seven Sea’s Explorer. Hit the hay on the bespoke Savoir bed – the mattress is filled with horse hair and worth $US150,000 (about $203,070).
