I decided that it’s important to keep you all up-to-date by picking the ones I thought were particularly relevant and putting them in one place. So, without further ado, here is a look at this week’s weekly news round-up from around ‘the World.’

This news is SO exciting for me and for all my followers who live here on the Texas Gulf Coast. Disney Cruise Line has signed a new 10-year agreement with the Port of Galveston to not only continue to sail out of Galveston but to double the number of sailings within the next few years. I hate to start rumors but might Galveston even see another Disney ship added to the mix? The agreement says the port will accommodate Disney ships the size of the Disney Wonder and Magic or larger. With 3 new ships currently being built, might they add a second ship to the rotation? We will see.
Disney Cruise Line plans to raise the recommended gratuity amounts for dining and stateroom crew members.
