Norwegian Dawn: Cruise ship allowed to dock in Mauritius after cholera outbreak scare

A spokesperson said: “During Norwegian Dawn’s Feb. 13, 2024 South Africa voyage, a small number of guests experienced mild symptoms of a stomach-related illness.  Upon the ship’s return to Port Louis, Mauritius, the vessel’s management team met with local authorities to confirm precautions and actions were being taken to ensure the wellbeing of all on board. Due to additional testing being required by local authorities before being allowed entry, the government of Mauritius has delayed disembarkation for the current cruise and embarkation for the next cruise by two days to Feb. 27, 2024.  “Furthermore, we have deployed additional team members to support the guests scheduled to embark on Norwegian Dawn’s Feb. 25, 2024 voyage from Port Louis, Mauritius, as well as providing them with complimentary hotel accommodations until they are able to board.

Tom Cruise to Star in New Alejandro Iñárritu Movie

Tom Cruise will star in the new feature from The Revenant filmmaker Alejandro G. Iñárritu, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment are in talks to acquire the package, which marks Iñárritu’s first English-language film since the Leonardo DiCaprio starrer The Revenant nearly a decade ago. Plot details are being kept under wraps for the feature project that was written by Iñárritu, Sabina Berman, Alexander Dinelaris and Nicolás Giacobone. The project comes after Cruise inked a splashy (but not exclusive) deal with Warner Bros. last month, leading to rampant speculation over what the pact would yield. The feature also fits the bill of rumors that Cruise is eager to work with auteurs after spending much of the past decade on franchise projects, including the Mission: Impossible films and Top Gun: Maverick, all at Paramount. Cruise is currently working on the next Mission movie and is still developing a much-touted feature that would be shot in space for Universal and director Doug Liman. Iñárritu last directed the Spanish-language Netflix drama Bardo. Prior to this, the director was in …

New 9-1-1 season 7 trailer reveals cruise explosion is now what it first appeared

9-1-1 – we have a major emergency. A new trailer for the 9-1-1season seven premiere has dropped, and it looks like the cruise ship explosion we were expecting is much much more terrifying than first thought.  “Last week, my husband, he booked us on a cruise. It’s kind of a belated honeymoon,” the clip shows Sergeant Athena Grant (Angela Bassett) telling her therapist of husband Captain Bobby Nash (Peter Krause).  “I’m terrified.”  9-1-1 season 7 trailer reveals cruise explosion is now what it first appeared The therapist responds: “I’m sure you’ll be fine.” Famous last words, as the trailer then cuts to guests onboard the cruise ship appearing to be held hostage by terrorists who capture the boat and hold everyone at gunpoint.  We then see the 118 and Hen Wilson trying to track the pair down: “I’m looking for Captain Nash and his wife but I can’t find their cruise ship.” Evan ‘Buck’ Buckley, Howard ‘Chim’ Han and Eddie Diaz are then seen boarding helicopters with grave looks on their faces, as one of the …

San Francisco Giants replace Cruise self-driving car uniform patch with another GM brand

San Francisco Giants replace Cruise self-driving car uniform patch with another GM brand

The San Francisco Giants said goodbye this week to a uniform patch that advertised Cruise and its robotaxis — the latest fallout for the GM self-driving subsidiary and its controversial presence in the city. The marketing partnership, which was announced in August 2023, will continue, but with another GM brand. For the 2024 baseball season, SF Giants uniforms will show the Chevrolet logo with the “EV” in bolded orange. Chevrolet’s all-electric vehicle portfolio includes the Chevy Blazer EV, the upcoming Equinox and the Chevy Silverado EV. The automaker recently stopped making the Chevy Bolt and Chevy Bolt EUV and paused sales of the Chevy Blazer EV over a software problem that affects the infotainment system. The uniform patch change comes several months after San Francisco-based Cruise lost its commercial permit to operate robotaxis in the city following an October incident that left a pedestrian stuck under, and then dragged by, one of its self-driving cars. In the months since, Cruise co-founder and CEO Kyle Vogt resigned, 24% of its staff were laid off, the Department of …

GM doubles Super Cruise hands-free map in North America

GM doubles Super Cruise hands-free map in North America

General Motors (GM) has once again expanded its maps of routes that enable Super Cruise hands-free driving in North America. The American automaker now operates the largest hands-free driving network now that it has nearly doubled the mileage of available routes on the continent. Super Cruise is a hands-free driver assistance feature introduced to the GM family of vehicles in 2017. It uses adaptive cruise control technology and car-connected services to navigate LiDAR-enabled map data using real-time positioning, cameras, and sensors. The result is an EV that can control its own acceleration, braking, and automated lane changes while driving on compatible roads. GM states its vehicles have driven over 160 million miles with Super Cruise engaged to date, with zero accidents. While the original Super Cruise map started relatively small, GM has continued to bolster the size of its network in the US and Canada as it expands the hands-free driving capabilities to 22 different models via over-the-air (OTA) updates. In August of 2022, we saw GM expand its Super Cruise map to about 400,000 miles across …
