The L&K team visited Ponant’s 264 passenger luxury boutique ship, Le Boréal, at a rare visit to the Port of Miami today. The vessel arrived from Panama, on her way to Portugal; stopping in Miami to pick up passengers for the Trans-Atlantic voyage. Ponant has a series of small, luxury exploration and boutique cruise vessels around the globe that are perfect for charter. Pictured from L&K are Cherie Weinstein, Joyce Landry, Vicki Fernandez and Pedro Jaimot. We were treated to French cuisine and service, which is the flag and hallmark of Ponant (as you would expect, the best bread, soup and sauces in the industry)!

“Being a FAN of Virgin!”
Last night’s SeaLicious event in New York was AMAZING! Virgin Voyages President, Tom Mcalpin and his culinary team rolled out their unique (and all-inclusive) food & beverage plans for their new ship, the scarlet lady. We got a taste of Razzle Dazzle and their “gay brunch” complete with the most famous “Queens of New York.” Different? You bet! We can trust Richard Branson for being a disrupter and bringing his own brand of flair and playfulness into the cruise industry… gay brunch shown with @StacyShawn, VP Sales & Business Development
