By Janice Wald Henderson When it comes to defining Caribbean flavors, first comes a blend of native and African cuisines with European such as French, Spanish, Dutch, and British. Then, add local ingredients such as fresh flavorful fish, sun-ripened tropical fruits and vegetables, and aromatic spices. Now imagine the melting pot of deliciousness! Depending on its cultural influences, each island puts a spin on what comes to the table. And trust me, it’s all good.
Like Cher or Madonna, Nobu is one of those people who requires only a first name to be identified nearly everywhere in the world. Yes, Chef Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa is that famous. At his eponymous restaurants worldwide — from Milan to Mykonos, Malibu to Melbourne — tables are jam-packed with a glam crowd. But aboard Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony, cruisers can revel in Nobu’s cuisine at Silk Road and The Sushi Bar without the crowds or big bills.
By Janice Wald Henderson Have you ever dreamed of a chef cooking exclusively for you on a private yacht? That dream’s a reality for 62 lucky guests sailing Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises’ Crystal Esprit. The chef’s dishes dazzle like Times Square at midnight, and I’ve eaten my way from stern to bow to find the skinny on the great eats aboard this intimate luxury yacht. Grab a napkin while reading —it’ll be handy for catching drool.
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".
