Continuing a leadership position in the land of European river cruises, Viking will build seven new river ships in 2019. Six of the comfy 190-passenger Viking Longships will sail Viking’s popular itineraries on the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers. One more new ship will be a modified version custom built for Portugal’s tricky to navigate Douro River. It’s a robust building schedule that goes in a bit different direction than the rest of the river cruise lines. But what else is new?
When cruise lines earn a top position on ranking lists fueled by passenger impressions of what they do, they shout about it. A record number of travelers took part in the 30th annual Conde Nast Reader’s Choice Awards survey. In the process, millions of ratings and a ton of comments were generated to fuel the list of winning favorites. Topping that list makes for a good day at any cruise line.
Caribbean destinations will be rebuilding from damage done during the 2017 hurricane season for years. Sure, those who live on islands in the Caribbean are indeed accustomed to picking up the pieces after the ugly side of otherwise attractive weather. Yes, we already know the importance of tourism in this part of the world. Of course, we would love to be part of the solution by contributing our tourist dollars to the local economy if in no other way than the port charges we pay as part of our fare.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
