The world's third largest ship - Quantum of the Seas - made its inaugural voyage to the Port of Nassau on Thanksgiving Day - bringing with it thousands of passengers from the frigid east coast of the United States.
The cruise liner, which is part of the Royal Caribbean International's fleet, has the capacity to carry 4,905 passengers and is the first ever smart-cruise to dock at the Port of Nassau.
The massive ship includes a number of amenities including luxury retail stores like Michael Kors, Cartier, Bvlgari among others, 11 restaurants, a skydiving simulator, a north star tower, adult and children swimming pools, a roller skating and bumper car ring, a casino, a music hall for live entertainment, a flow rider surfing simulation and a state-of-the-art fitness centre.
During a special inauguration ceremony, Director General of Tourism Joy Jibrilu said The Bahamas has a long standing relationship with Royal Caribbean, which has been coming to The Bahamas for over 40 years.
"Royal Caribbean has been docking out shores for 44 years, beginning in 1970 with the Song of Norway just six years following the establishment of Tourism as the primary industry for economic development within The Bahamas," she said.
"As time progressed, The Bahamas became the model and leader in the Western Hemisphere, and Royal Caribbean has stayed with us throughout these years. Our Tourism sector has grown by leaps and bounds and similarly, so have you - your first ship, the Song of Norway at 18,000 tons in 1970 and now the Quantum of the Seas weighing in at 169,000 tons, a mere increase of 151,000 tons.
"The expanse and the vested interest Royal Caribbean has maintained in The Bahamas assures that RCCL has its place in The Bahamas Tourism archives and we are happy that you are our friend and partner," Ms. Jibrilu added.
The director general also lauded the engineering of the ship and its use of a digital platform that allows passengers to create a schedule of activities even before leaving home with a one-of-a-kind downloadable app.
"This is an unmatched innovative concept. Your dedicated satellite with an impressive bandwidth exceeding all other vessels combined, expresses a Quantum leap in RCCL's commitment to a customer base requiring access to technology," Ms. Jibrilu said.
"The Quantum of the Seas is said to avidly compete with any five-star luxury hotel brand. This is further undergirded by the complement of enviable activities, innumerable amenities, quality service and real-time access to all telecommunications mediums occurring on land."
The passengers of the boat danced to the sounds of Junkanoo as they were welcomed to The Bahamas.
Ms. Jibrilu said the Ministry of Tourism strives to create authentic Bahamian experiences to add to the overall value of Quantum of the Seas and that of all our suppliers.
"Our goal is to ensure that passengers want to visit The Bahamas again, while showcasing the myriad of diverse experiences in our region. You will hear more about our initiatives at a later date."
The ship's master Captain Srecko Ban said officials of the ship are very proud to bring the unique to Nassau.
"We thank you for your great hospitality," he said. "We will be coming to your fine port throughout the winter until May. We look forward to a successful partnership in the future," he said.
Next winter, Royal Caribbean's Anthem of the Seas will be making its way to Nassau.
Director of Maritime Tourism Janet Johnson stressed that her department continues to work feverishly to ensure that luxury cruise liners dock in Nassau.
"It is very, very important to bring these kinds of ships to The Bahamas because they bring the high-end customers, who have the wherewithal to be able to spend while they are here in The Bahamas. They take tours, dine at our restaurants and sometimes overnight if they wish to stay on and fly back and they shop in our stores," she said.
"We can have lots and lots of ships, but it's better to have the high-end net worth customer that is able to leave disposable income here in The Bahamas."
NASSAU, Bahamas -- There are many people in our lives who go unrecognized for all that they have done and continue to do to make life better for others. More often than not, these persons don't ask for anything in return; they simply desire to make life easier for others and our society a better place to live. Such persons step outside of their work environments to influence the education, health, the economy and social wellbeing of others. This Christmas, as you plan to meet with family and friends, the Heart Ball Committee encourages you to celebrate those special people in our life. In fact, the public is being encouraged to submit nominations for the Lady Sassoon Golden Heart Award.
On Saturday February 15th, 2014, The Heart Ball Committee will host the 50th Annual Heart Ball. Under the patronage of His Excellency Sir Arthur Foulkes and Joan Lady Foulkes, and The Right Honourable Perry Gladstone Christie and Mrs. Bernadette Christie, the 2013 / 2014 Heart Ball Committee will host the 50th Annual Heart Ball. The theme for this Ball is, "Celebrating the Golden Anniversary of a Vision...Championing the Cause of Children. Guests can look forward to an evening filled with elegance, fine food, fun, dancing and prizes.
There will be live band and orchestral performances followed by special music by Gary "Super" Johnson. All persons attending the Ball will have an opportunity to leave with a prize; there will be table prizes, an in-house raffle and a special auction. Featured items include: a set of round trip ticket to London, kindly donated by British Airways, jewelry from Cartier and Bulgari provided by John Bull, and much, much more. One of the highlights of the evening is the presentation of the Lady Sassoon Golden Heart Award. Most importantly, this event is the major fundraiser that benefits The Sir Victor Sassoon (Bahamas) Heart Foundation, helping to repair the hearts of children.
Since 1968, the Lady Sassoon Golden Heart has been presented at the Annual Heart Ball. The award was initiated by The Heart Foundation to applaud and give recognition to individuals who have selflessly given of themselves to promote human welfare and dignity, thus making life better for their fellow men. Typically, this work would be outside of one's regular paid work.

Fragrance is so personal that the scent you wear says something about you. But as the temperature changes, it's a good idea to consider new aromas. As the heat soars into the mid-90s Villamae Newbold, perfume specialist at John Bull, says you should be wearing fragrances that are clean, fresh or a light floral that won't stick to the skin during the hot summer months when you sweat a lot.
"When you wear a fragrance that is heavy during the summer season, it sticks to you and gives off a funny odor," said the 15-year perfume specialist, "so in different seasons you should look to use different fragrances." She also says the one thing that turns her off is being able to smell someone's scent before she even sees the person as they've applied too much perfume or are wearing one that's too strong for them.
HOW TO WEAR FRAGRANCE
Newbold says women and men should apply fragrance behind their ears, in the wrist area and at the back of their knees -- places that are warm and hold the fragrance longer. "Men tend to splash it on their face, which they shouldn't do. That's what aftershave is for as it doesn't have much alcohol. Men should apply cologne the way ladies do at the pulse points."
GET YOUR SCENT TO LAST LONGER
Layering your scent is the best way to get your fragrance of choice to last longer. Newbold says starting with the shower gel, applying the body lotion or cream in the fragrance line and your favorite scent should last all day.
With hundreds of scents to choose from, Newbold says there are people that have identified a scent they love and stick to it over the years, but she says perfume specialists like herself can help you find a scent or scents that will be perfect for you, but that you also have to have input into the selection process.
"I can say a scent is spicy, but another person may think it's sweet and light. It varies with people and their body chemistry, which plays an important factor. You may like a scent on the strip, but when you test it on your actual skin it smells completely different. So what I tell customers is that if they like a scent on the strip to test it on their skin to see, because sometimes the scent changes. She says before smelling a strip, give the fragrance five to 10 seconds to sit before smelling it rather than smelling the fragrance as soon as they spray.
Working your way through new fragrances to find the one you like takes time, and it is advised that you take breaks and give yourself a five-minute rest after sniffing a set of three to five perfumes or colognes to really capture the true essence of each.
Always spritz your skin as certain ingredients in perfumes/colognes may stain your clothes or jewelry, so spray your scent on before dressing. If you're wearing pearls, always remember the delicate surface of pearls is especially vulnerable to damage. And always apply perfume to pulse points such as the neck and wrists. The elevated temperature there will help release the scent.
