The vast majority of cruises to Alaska are more or less the same: weeklong sailings that call on the “big three” ports of Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway, plus a day’s cruising at either Glacier Bay National Park or Tracy Arm Fjord. Ultra-luxury line Seabourn is doing things differently. This year marks the line’s first return to Alaska (and British Columbia) in 15 years, and Seabourn is pulling out all the stops to differentiate itself.
It assails you from the moment you first arrive: a never-ending cacophony of smells and sounds that serve as the constant backdrop for travel through India. The smell changes without warning, from spices and curries to diesel fuel and back again. The sounds blend together, like a soundtrack with hundreds of instruments all playing out of tune, from chai-walla vendors hawking India’s famous drink to the bleating of car horns and the ceaseless roar of jet planes passing overhead.
Viking River Cruises is celebrating its 20 anniversary this year, and it is doing so in style. Earlier this month, the line christened two brand new Viking Longship river cruise ships in the port of Koblenz, Germany, bringing the company’s total river fleet to more than 60. The two newest ships – Viking Hild and Viking Herja – carry 190 guests apiece and are the latest in Viking’s highly-successful Longship design of riverboat that first debuted back in 2012.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
