The new Family Harbor staterooms feature more room for families with accommodations for five with deluxe, ocean view and interior options. And just look at the decor – so nautical, I just love it. The exclusive Family Harbor Lounge offers families a place to make even more memories. With a special family concierge desk, large screen televisions, board games, complimentary breakfast and around the clock snacks – there will also be scheduled activities for families to have fun together. The new Carnival Vista debuts on May 1, 2016 with a 13-day cruise departing from Trieste, Italy. On October 21, 2016, Carnival Vista will embark on a special 13-day transatlantic crossing and arrive in New York November 3, 2016, then operate a series of voyages from the Big Apple. SportsSquare is one of my family’s favorite spots to hang out on Carnival ships, so I was thrilled to hear that the area will be expanded on Carnival Vista. We are huge fans of Dr. Seuss and love participating in the onboard Seuss at Sea programming – especially the Green Eggs and Ham breakfast. The Carnival Vista will be home to the fleet’s second Dr. Seuss Bookville – a whimsical area for families filled with Dr. Seuss books, board games and puzzles.
At times when other writing activities were, if not entirely dormant, at least pleasantly snoozy, it has been a constant motivation for me to continue practicing this exhausting, exasperating, and exhilarating craft called writing. And so, after another year, the common mindset seems to expand until our memory reaches back to the beginning of this year, and we make an evaluation. I generally like to skip the second part, because while I find evaluation useful, I have always believed that, if you want to make things happen, you shouldn’t think about them too much beforehand. If I had been feeling more anxious and less trusting about the future, I might have felt the need to make a detailed plan. But for now, I trust on a remarkable feeling which has been building inside me all year, and which I’ve been experiencing quite a lot lately. I find that I like it. ‘Hwyl’ is a marvelous little word denoting ‘a stirring feeling of emotional motivation and energy’. Originally ‘hwyl’ was a nautical term, and referred to the sail of a ship, but was then metonymically reinterpreted as a ‘course’. In the context of public speaking, ‘hwyl’ came to denote ‘a sudden ecstatic inspiration’ which carried the speaker away on its wings, supplying him with burning words of eloquence which he would never have been able to find in a normal state. When the word was taken over by the English, it gained a broader interpretation, away from the specific context of public speaking.
