Let them […] Continue reading →

I have to admit, the thing I got most excited about when boarding Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas for the first time was the promise of tech. We were able to sign up for mini-tours and this cruise was so chock full on innovations that a newbie cruiser like myself was over the moon. We got to visit the bridge and hear about safety from the captain himself. We went below deck to see how the ship recycles […] Continue reading →

I saw something today that warmed my heart and put a smile on my face.  An Italian media company called Ciaopeople Media Group put together a video showcasing the results of a certain social experiment. They interviewed four boys between 7 and 11 years of age and introduced them to a girl called Martina.  The boys were asked to caress Martina, make a funny face and then to slap her – hard. Their reactions and responses are just…well you’ll have to […] Continue reading →
