Innovation Hub

Welcome to our news and blog section. Here you will find the latest updates from theICEway and our IT specialists at ICE. We are frequently invited to attend and speak at industry events, so if you don’t want to miss out on those, this is the page for you.

With more than 20 years’ worth of experience in cruise, travel and healthcare, you will also be able to read more about these key sectors. Of course, at the heart of it all is Information Technology – which some of you may know as ‘IT’ – and we’ll certainly include news on that.

Our ecosystem of companies was founded upon 3 guiding principles, or values: People, integrity and innovation. We always aim to infuse our every effort with one or all of these. The first, ‘people’, includes not only our people, but also those we work alongside each day. If you are reading this, then you can rest assured that it also includes you.

As such, we welcome your comments and feedback so do join in the conversation. You can also follow us on social media using the links below.

Cruise industry news Aug 2021

by Asa Sargeant | September 1, 2021 | Cruise & Maritime, Cruise Industry News | 0 Comments

As September begins, it is time to take a look back at cruise industry news Aug 2021. The feeling within the sector as a whole is an increasingly positive one as more cruise lines begin to re-enter the water. Plus, in a little under 4 weeks’ time there is a cruise gathering you might have heard about…

Britain’s Most Environmentally-Friendly Cruise Ship Sets Sail

The Express ran this story about the Iona from P&O Cruises in August. It is the first British cruise ship to be powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG). Iona is P&O’s newest and most innovative vessel, and the largest passenger ship ever built for the UK cruise market. Completed in 2020, the features on board include a craft gin distillery, an Infinity Pool, a four-screen cinema, a spa, a fitness studio, and over 30 places to enjoy food and beverages.

Oceania Resumes Sailing

Our friends at Cruise Industry News ran this article just last weekend. Oceania Cruises’ The Marina has become the first vessel to welcome guests on board in 524 days. It is also the first to set sail from the port of Copenhagen since 2019. In line with the ‘SailSAFE™ Health and Safety Program’ from NCLH, 100% of guests and crew are vaccinated.

Seatrade Cruise Global 2021

#STCGlobal is almost here so it would be remiss not to mention it in cruise industry news Aug 2021. Whether you intend to go to Miami or attend virtually, you can register your interest here. CEO and co-founder of theICEway, Ian Richardson, will be there in his capacity as a Tech Ambassador. Some of the other team members will join him at what is perhaps the most highly-anticipated event in the cruise calendar. If you need IT solutions or support, we would love to see you there to discuss how we can help.

That’s it for our regular news round-up but we would love to hear from you in the comments section. Was there any cruise news piece that caught your eye in August? Or from 2021 as a whole?
