Serving South Florida’s Coastal NeighborhoodsAPRIL 2014 YEAR 4 IS SUE 10 Fishing with guns?.............................................3 New cruisin g ops..............................................8 Admiralty Law 5 € Classifieds 18 € Event Calendar 12 € Tide Table 13 € Waypoints 8 DOUGLAS JORDAN for Waterfront Times From the local resident with a 16-foot center console to the movers and shakers riding 100-plus-foot fiberglass, Hollywood wants to accommodate them all. That’s the message behind the city’s newly proposed marine waterway master plan, which seeks to tap into a resurging marine industry and pleasure boating at all levels. One of the main bullet points is to “increase the city tax base.” Most of the potential projects involve enhancing the waterways for both transient and residential use, such as expanding the city’s marina, adding a mooring field in South Lake, increasing tourism with new destination points, building a new pier on the ocean side and linking to emerging commercial interests such as the luxurious, 349-room Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort, which is planned for a 5-acre site between Johnson and Michigan streets. “We’re not trying to be Fort Lauderdale,” said Renee Richards-Lukehart, project manager for the city’s department of parks, recreation and cultural arts. “We always want to be more resident-oriented. And we are very much concerned with conservation and the responsibility for protecting our environmental resources.” In 2012, the city received a 50 percent funding grant from the Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND) to put together the plan, which was drafted by consulting firm EDSA, Inc., at a total cost of $150,000. Hollywood’s Community Redevelopment Agency kicked in the other half of the money. “The primary purpose of this study is to perform a detailed analysis of the waterways system within the City of Hollywood, identifying opportunities to optimize the utilization of the waterways within Hollywood through a mixture of compatible uses that both activates and celebrates the waterfront,” Richards-Lukehart said. The plan proposes projects encompassing all of those waters, including also more than 7 miles of the Atlantic, the Intracoastal, North Lake, South Lake, West Lake and many of the local canals, ponds and mangroves. So far the plan is getting positive reviews from some residents, while others are a bit more guarded about getting behind it. “I think it’s a good plan,” said Jack Scheiler, 71, of Dania Beach. “I went to both of the public meetings, and they’ve got some good ideas. Obviously, you can’t please everybody on every little issue, but I think they’re receptive to that, and I think they’ve got the best interests of the city in mind.” But Hollywood Lakes resident Michael Remaly, an emergency room physician who recently did a large renovation on his waterfront home isn’t so sure he likes the plan. “There are things I agree with, and there are things I strongly don’t agree with,” Remaly said. “The first proposed project which leaped out at me was the dredging of North Lake to allow bigger yachts to get into Hollywood Marina. I don’t like the idea of bringing that kind of impact to this lake.” Even worse, he said, is an idea to take the dredged material and create a “fill island” in the center of the lake. “They were talking about creating an island in there that’s as large or larger than the block I live on,” Remaly said. “That would kill the lake, in my opinion, and I imagine that island as a sort of Beer Can Island full of drunks and bringing in jet skis, fast boats, the whole thing.

When not feeding them, their mom perches on a topless palm trunk a few yards away, indifferent to the crowd of picture snappers. Ospreys usually stay on the nest until mid-April.Photo | SANDY WISEMAN ARNOLD MARKOWITZ Waterfront Times One of the best things Miami-Dade County does is April’s annual Baynanza shoreline cleanup on Biscayne Bay, scheduled this year for Saturday morning, April 26. Thousands of volunteers will remove ton upon ton of trash, refuse, rubbish and jetsam found on beaches, adrift along bulkheads and snagged among the roots of mangroves. The worst part, many volunteers have found over the years, is having to quit at noon because there’s still so much garbage out there. All the same, the experience is likely to leave you feeling satisfied and maybe even a little bit noble. Baynanza, now in its 32nd year, is organized by DERM, the county environmental agency. Related events began in mid-March, a few having little or no direct connection to what’s primarily a celebration of the bay and its natural beauty. The shoreline cleanup is the highlight. School classes, civic organizations, boating and fishing groups and individual people acting on their own will swarm to 23 sites spread from Oleta River State Park at the north end to Biscayne National and Homestead Bayfront Parks at the south end. Why? To pick up trash and stuff it in plastic bags — domestic drudgery at home but somehow emotionally and socially rewarding, even noble here. The school kids get community service credits too. If you want to participate, it’s somewhat important to register online no later than Friday, April 4, picking your first and second choices from the list of 23 locations. Boat owners are always needed to ferry people to the island sites, and Baynanza promises not to turn your gleaming vessel into a garbage scow. If you blow the deadline you won’t be turned away, but you will risk crowding a site that already has more people than needed. You’ll also probably miss out on getting a Baynanza T-shirt. The shirt’s always a witty, strikingly good work of art designed by some little kid of whom you have every right to be jealous. This year it’s by Sofia Flores, who’s in fifth grade at Royal Green Elementary School in Miami-Dade. Therefore, waste no time. Look for links to the registration form, calendar of events, boat captaincy and other details:www.miamidade.gov/environment/baynanza.asp. Finders keepers Catch and release fishing-doers are luckier than limittakers. It’s not that they catch more fish, no, but they don’t have to sweat changing closed and open seasons, or care about size and bag limits, or know if they’re in state or federal waters or bother with all the other stuff that keeps being added to state and federal regulations. Except circle hooks. Pretty soon you’ll have to use those — straight inline circle hooks, not offset, and no stainless steel — when catching red snapper and nine other reef species in state waters of the Gulf of Mexico — but not if you’re fishing in Monroe County. That and much more is according to new regulations scheduled for enactment by the Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) Commission on Wednesday, April 16, in Tallahassee. First, the state red snapper season: This year’s will be 52 days, beginning on May 24, the Saturday before Memorial Day. It will close at midnight Monday, July 14. Our wall calendar says that is “Pandemonium Day,” maybe just a coincidence. Break the word down and you can figure out it means demons are running around loose, everywhere. The 40-day federal season starts June 1 and goes through July 10. It could end earlier if NOAA, which is in charge of federal fisheries, figures out that the quota for the season is reached sooner than July 10, or later if it won’t be met by then. Federal waters in the Gulf start 9 miles offshore. Next, the size and bag limits: Red snappers’ minimum keeper size is 16 inches, total length. You can keep two like that on a trip. Your limit for all kinds of snapper, including the two reds, is 10 per day. We’ll also be required to have and use a de-hooking device. First thing that comes to mind is one of those metal rods with a curly end, but FWC says needle-nose SEE BAYNANZA | PAGE 6 Yearly Baynanza making a dirty job socially gratifying

He’s a genial type who was starting to say something friendly when one of the others told him to scram. “We’re fishing a tournament,” he said, lifting his shirt. “He had a gun on his belt,” Joe said next time I saw him. Joe doesn’t fish tournaments, so excuse him for not knowing the entry fee buys a lowlife the privilege of menacing others. Sensibly taking the gesture as a threat from a belligerent psycho, Joe scrammed. I can think of others who would have screamed — not in fright, but in counter-challenge. If you and I had been there, how would we have handled that? Might as well plan for the day when we’ll have to: “Meet me here at high noon, Sphincter, and we’ll see if you got the guts to use that piece.” Too provocative? How about “I double-dog dare you!” I might have tried a witty wisecrack, like someone who watches a lot of crime and espionage shows, expecting the gunster to sense my script and break out grinning. Well, no. I’m not so clever when I’m surprised. Maybe by the end of the day I’d have thought of something I should have said, like this: “If you don’t win the tournament, will you shoot the dude who does?” That’s a good one, but in all honesty I just thought of it now, many months after Joe told me about the confrontation. It isn’t the sort of story you’d tell your mother, is it? For the rest of her life she’d nag you to quit fishing or they’ll kill you. Not your mom? Mine sure would. I suppose a lot more gun-carriers are floating over fishing grounds, freshwater and salt, than the rest of us know about. We don’t often hear about them because they don’t often go berserk. Just doing something stupid and hostile without bloodshed doesn’t make headlines. I know of only one fishing gun carrier for sure, and another for probably. Nobody’s ever pulled iron on either of them, or even displayed it as Mr. Sphincter did that day Joe happened along. Even so, my friends sound concerned that if it hasn’t happened by now, it will happen soon enough. The first one, Dave, told me he hadn’t told me before but he now would, that he has a license to carry one and often does — takes it to Flamingo, all the way to the end of the mainland and out on Florida Bay. If he’s overnighting at the campground, it’s in his tent. What for? “What if I need it?” he said. I said, “what if you don’t?” Neither of us conceded, but we had a good argument that kept us awake on the drive home from Flamingo. The other one, Don, was talking about how the National Park Service, which likes its regulations to conform to local and state laws, was going to say okay to people who had state permits and wanted to carry their stuff around even though there’s no hunting in national parks. We were somewhere on Florida Bay on a weekday, with no one else in sight. “I’d feel good, knowing there’s someone out here with a gun,” that one said. I wouldn’t, this one thought, not aloud. I didn’t want to get him started. He likes getting me started. I fish with these people. We’re friends. We think mostly alike about fishing, sporting tackle, species and habitat conservation, other stuff. We’re all fly throwers who bring along a spinning rod to prospect for fish, or at least to show we’re not snobbish. We react in the same ways when we hook a good one, when it gets away or when we bring it to hand. We all value all of that, which is part of what distinguishes us as civilized men even if we break wind and cuss when we hook our own fingers. Don, the one who’d feel good about someone having a gun out there, starts a conversation saying, “I know we don’t agree about politics but” and before he finishes I tell him to erase that and start over. It shouldn’t matter that we don’t agree about politics. Anyway I’m thinking about safety and good sense, not politics. Sure I have mine. Don’s more fervent about his. He would say something like that about me. One night at the clubhouse of the Fish or Cut Bait Society, he mentioned he was thinking of getting a CCW permit. CCW is police blotter shorthand for carrying a concealed weapon. It used to be a criminal offense. “What for?” Somebody asked. “Protection of course,” Don said. “I didn’t realize you were living so dangerously,” said the other. Don wasn’t living dangerously and still isn’t, except that he lives in Miami. Me too. Certain people consider that dangerous. South Florida sports who are mature enough to recall the 1980s know stories about the high seas hijackings that went on between here and the Bahamas. If your boat could run fast, it seemed, you were asking for trouble.

I don’t want to see them overly commercialize our waterways. But we’re happy to be here, and we want to work with the city.” Anyone interested in providing feedback is urged to do it by Thursday, April 10, Richards-Lukehart said. The best way to do that is to email her at rrichards@hollywoodfl.org. To view the plan as it exists currently, go to www.hollywoodfl.org/DocumentCenter/View/3519. have drug deals going on out there at night. That’s not what this community needs.” Remaly said he’s also irked that the plan has been funded and created without much advance notice to Hollywood residents. “Very few people knew about the public meetings, and even fewer knew about the plan at all,” he said. “It seems to me that they should have done more due diligence in notifying the community.” He said Richards-Lukehart has been very receptive, however. “She took the time to hear my concerns and to be receptive to them,” he said. “I appreciate that.” Remaly, who enjoys watching sea life — including dolphins and manatees — from his dock with his wife, said Richards-Lukehart told him recently that the idea for the fill island has been scrapped. “That’s a relief, certainly,” he said. “But there are still other parts of it that concern me. Mainly, I’m nervous about the whole idea of commercializing the waterway too much. Early on, they were throwing around the phrase ‘Water makes money,’ which I found not too good for getting the community behind this thing. They’ve since dropped that. I think there's a point where there’s money not worth making. There needs to be a balance between generating revenue and preserving the community.” Remaly, an avid kayaker, said he was happy with certain components of the plan, such as an proposal to enhance connectivity and recreational aspects for non-motorized watercraft. Richards-Lukehart, who wrote the grant, said community input is of “vital importance.” “We want to hear from residents, and we want to focus on conservation of our beautiful resources here,” she said. “We are open to ideas, which is why we’ve held these two public meetings and why I’m encouraging people to email me with their thoughts on this.” Once the public input is put together and reviewed, some of the ideas will be built into the master plan, she said, with 5 and 10-year goals. Tyler Chappell, FIND vice chairman for Broward County, said he was “very pleased” with the proposal. “As far as I’ve seen, it’s been very well received,” Chappell said. “I think they’ve done an excellent job in putting this thing together, and I’m glad they’re looking for additional public outreach.” Chappell said he had hoped that Broward County would have been more involved, but that he was impressed with what the city has done. “This is quite a project for a municipality, especially a smaller city like Hollywood, to undertake,” he said. EDSA Inc. will continue working on the master plan in April, which goes before the Hollywood City Commission for final approval in June.

Maybe you were on some of those boats. I wasn’t, for the reason that fishing someplace where I’d better be armed didn’t seem like very much fun. Not very much safe, either. People like me missed a lot of good blue water fishing in those days, and especially the first-rate carousing that made Bimini such a treat. Guns don’t scare me, except on the water and under the shirts of people I’m afraid are praying for a chance to shoot someone or who just have fun scaring others. In the 1980s, I took the one-day CCW class, passed easily and earned the credibility to write a series of newspaper articles about the controversial new law allowing any hothead without a known felony history to act out his fantasies. I kept the certificate but didn’t apply for the permit. People asked why not. What for? I asked. Nobody had a good enough answer. Gunsters were forbidden by the law to display their weapons openly. State legislators thought squint-eyed smirkers swaggering around bowlegged with ammo belts slung low and holsters strapped to their thighs might not look appropriate. My view was that if people were going to carry guns they should be exposed, not concealed, so everyone would know whom to avoid. Or not. Learning to shoot helped me to overcome a longtime fear of guns and become more concerned about who had them. The fear was sincere. One scare happened in the police station of Orange, N.J. where a police reservist who was drunk aimed a .32 caliber revolver between my eyes. He thought it was fun to frighten a kid reporter. Years later, that guy ran for political office and became police commissioner. What a town was Orange, N.J. My next fright came while covering Miami’s first race riot. I was riding with a photographer when someone whizzed a few rounds at our car, close enough to hear them twang and just far enough to miss us. We thought we should report it, so we went to the police command post and told the lieutenant in charge, who grinned. “Occupational hazard,” he said.

Unfortunately at that time, the vessel that was available and could most practically conduct the transport was foreign flagged. It took another several weeks to deliver the badly needed salt as New Jersey clamored to find smaller appropriatelyflagged vessels to deliver the cargo in smaller incremental shipments. “But, wait!” you might instinctively react, “Can’t the government allow for exceptions during emergencies?” Well, the short answer is yes, but it entails finding someone high up in the bureaucracy, that is now part of the NSA, to sign off on a waiver and accept responsibility. My own theory is that finding such a person during the snowstorms that also fell over Washington, D.C. made this possibility a moot point. (The other possibility is, of course, basic “government red tape”). For whatever reason, it did not occur. So, does this mean that we might see some changes in the 95-year-old Jones Act? Honestly, given the present foreign political climate, I think it’s rather doubtful. The last time major modifications to the Act were seriously contemplated was just before the 9/11 tragedies. This should be a teachable moment for New Jersey and probably everyone else. Transporting goods in future emergencies might prove more difficult than expected. That’s because we must all keep in mind that when you need something or someone moved from one U.S. port to another, to paraphrase that old Coasters song: “...Along Comes the Jones Act!” Mark Ercolin is a maritime attorney based in Fort Lauderdale. The information offered in this column is summary in nature and should not be applied to specific situations or cases. Oh, did I say times were different? Well, never mind… Anyway, recognizing the tenuous nature of the global situation, many in the U.S became alarmed by the fact that the American merchant fleet had been shrinking for some time. Further, many types of merchant vessels that were once built in the U.S. were then being manufactured overseas. Congress decided to take up the matter, and this was the genesis of what eventually resulted in the legislation we now call the Jones Act (more accurately referenced as the Merchant Marine Act of 1920) as it was initially introduced by Sen. Wesley Jones of Washington state. As you can tell from its more accurate title, the Jones Act wasn’t actually ratified until after the crisis of WWI had already passed. H owever, advocates felt that its primary purpose of maintaining a U.S.-based merchant fleet with U.S.-built vessels through protectionist statutes continued to have merit. To this end, for purposes of maritime commerce conducted under the Jones Act, it is generally required that in order to transport passengers or cargo directly from one U.S. port to another U.S. port, it must be done on a U.S.-flagged vessel, manned primarily by a U.S. crew. So what does this have to do with New Jersey getting rock salt? Well, during the height of the winter storms, the closest salt stockpile was 40,000 tons located in Searsport, Maine.

MARK ERCOLIN Waterfront Times Columnist The bitter winter endured this year by our northern neighbors more than ever shows the advantages of life in South Florida. In fact, as of this writing close to April, the Northeast is expecting yet another storm. Rock salt, a necessity to prevent calamities when driving in bad weather, has been a commodity this year. As if New Jersey didn’t have enough troubles, they were unable to get supplies in a timely fashion due, in part, to a 95-year-old statute dealing with maritime commerce: the Jones Act. Mariners often think of the Jones Act as a law that allows seamen to sue employers for negligence from an injury, which it does. However, de aling with the rights of seamen is really only one small portion of the statute. Arguably, of greater consequence is the portion of the law concerning the vessels and crewmen that may be used in national commerce, including the loading and unloading of passengers and cargo. For a better understanding of this part of the Jones Act, it might be helpful to review the history behind its adoption into law. Almost exactly 100 years ago, Europe and America were looking into the political precipice that became the World War I. It was a very different time, of course. The small nations of Eastern Europe were attempting to break away from the control of an imperial power that was trying to reestablish its former glory. There was unrest in the Middle East as modern superpowers vied for political and economic control of that region’s strategic location and resources. HUNGRY?See page10forGalleyrecipes!

By way of justification, here’s a little background: Fish scientists report it’s important to turn loose the larger snappers, especially reds, because the bigger females produce so many more eggs: it takes 212 of them at 17 inches (about 5 years old) to make as many as a single 24-incher, age about 8. Circle hooks will be required because they give carefully released fish a lot better chance of survival than J-shaped hooks. Circle hooks seldom snag in a fish’s innards even if they’re swallowed. Correct technique: Don’t jerk-set the circle hook. Just reel your line tight and back the hook comes until it reaches the fish’s mouth, where it usually snags at the hinge of the jaw.

The state already has about 2,500 trained volunteers monitoring turtle nesting, so the rest of us can go to the beach, stand respectfully out of the way and watch. Leatherbacks started nesting first, in March on beaches from Broward to Brevard County. As the season goes on, there should be plenty of loggerheads and green turtles crawling ashore. Loggerheads are the most abundant, with Florida getting about 90 percent of their nestings in the southeastern states. The last couple of years have been spectacular, with more Florida loggerhead nests in 2012 than ever before and more green turtle nests in 2013 than ever before. If you don’t see turtles coming ashore, you can tell where they’ve been by the crawl marks they leave on the sand and the egg stashes marked by stakes and yellow tape. FWC’s website has a vast amount of turtle information inclu ding pictures.

Don’t feel guilty if it will take more work than you feel like doing to give FWC what it wants: “Beachgoers lucky enough to spot horseshoe crabs are asked to note how many they see and whether the horseshoe crabs are mating. If possible, the observer should also count how many horseshoe crabs are mating adults and how many are juveniles (4 inches wide or smaller). “In addition, biologists ask observers to provide the date, time, location, habitat type and environmental conditions — such as tides and moon phase — when a sighting occurs.” The best times to watch are near high tide just before, during or after a full moon or new moon. Here’s an even more exciting part: April’s full moon, at 3:43 a.m. on Tuesday, April 15, happens right in the middle of a lunar eclipse that begins at 12:55 a.m. and lasts until 4:23. If you’re staying up late anyway to finish your income tax return, the stress relief potential is great. It may add to the fun to see whether the mating crabs call time out during the eclipse, and to wonder whether they are watching it too. Our wall calendar says, no kidding, that in addition to tax day, April 15 is “Rubber Eraser Day.” We looked that up and learned that someone named Joseph Priestly invented the rubber eraser in 1770. Hyman Lipman patented the idea of attaching it to a pencil in 1858. Where? In Philadelphia, Pencilvania.

8 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMApril2014Waterfront Times range — into a bright-side asset, sacrificing that for depth by spending more time in one region. Un-Cruise Adventures will route its 60-passenger Wilderness Adventurer to the Puget Sound and Salish Sea in Washington for a series of eight-day trips in spring and fall. Active excursions include hiking in the Olympic Mountains, kayaking around Sucia Island and whale watching in the San Juan Islands. Blount Small Ship Adventures’ 88passenger Grande Mariner will spend 12 days in the Bahamas Out Islands in March and April, a first for the dualship line, including shore landings to swim, snorkel, beachcomb and attend a pirate-themed party. In June, the 210-passenger Pearl Mist will make its first departure for the new line Pearl Seas Cruises. It will spend the summer primarily in the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway on 10to 14-night itineraries, before plying the Canadian Maritime Provinces and New England in the fall. Immersing in the destination The mantra among voyage planners is local, local, local, touting immersive experiences ashore as well as onboard. The Norwegian line Hurtigruten dives so deep into the destination, in fact, that it invites passengers to stay ashore — in Antarctica. Overnight camping has been a success; the crew had to hold lotteries to determine who was allowed to spend the night on the ice, outfitted with tents and belowzero-rated sleeping bags. Hurtigruten plans to offer overnight deck camping on its Arctic itineraries in Spitsbergen, Norway, for iceberg-watching under the midnight sun. Lindblad Expeditions’ new ship, National Geographic Orion, sets sail this month with a remote-operated vehicle that can dive to 1,000 feet and shoot video while passengers scuba dive at safer depths on the Great Barrier Reef and in Micronesia. Holland America brings the destination onboard via its “On Location” program, which features local artists, storytellers and entertainers. Guests can learn to play the didgeridoo and paint a boomerang in Australia, for example, or take French lessons in the Canadian itineraries. Noted regional chefs often join cruises from the Caribbean to Thailand to prepare local fare. partures to Papua New Guinea in March, April and November, versus one last year. The Australian line North Star Cruises offers five different itineraries there, including a 36-passenger trip in October to Cenderawasih Bay in West Papua, where whale sharks gather to beg sardines from fishermen. In the north, the 184-passenger Hanseatic from Hapag Lloyd will ship out for coastal Siberia in May on a 17day trip from Shanghai to Otaru, Japan. And in June, Adventure Canada will visit Canada’s newest national park, Sable Island off Nova Scotia, reachable only by boat and home to wild horses and rare seabirds. Slow cruising A spate of new itineraries turns the downside of small ships — their limited ELAINE GLUSAC The New York Times Cruise lines continue to diversify, with itineraries that seem to offer something for everyone, from steeped-in-thewild adventure cruises to massive floating resorts. But large or small, eco or culinary, most cruises today strive to connect passengers to local cultures. “Cruise lines understand travelers want experiences,” said Carolyn Spencer Brown, editor of CruiseCritic.com. “Especiallywith the new-to-cruise market in their 30s and 40s, they want connections with the places they visit, and we’re seeing that at all price levels.” A sense of experience drives the following six trends in cruising. Far and away places Though Caribbean-bound itineraries account for nearly a third of the market, increasingly more exotic itineraries are being offered, particularly aboard small ships with the nimbleness to call at lessdeveloped ports. SeaDream Yacht Club will chart a new course to Norway this summer. The 112-passenger SeaDream I will poke into fjords, dock for high-country hikes and feature Scandinavian cuisine, from breakfast herring to reindeer dinners. Several lines are increasing departures in New Guinea, including Lindblad Expeditions, which will offer three de-Cruising: it’s notyour parents’vacation anymore SEE CRUISES | PAGE 9 WAYPOINTS A Tauck river boat in Budapest.Photo | Tauck


9April2014 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMWaterfront Times New cruising trends appeal to a younger crowd Rivers run with it Though passenger numbers are diminutive relative to ocean cruising, river cruising continues to boom, with dozens of new launches and ships deployed on more rivers outside of Europe. Viking River Cruises alone will send out 14 new ships this year, all in Europe. Tauck will debut two ships, primarily on the Rhine, Moselle and Danube. Sharing those rivers, the new line Emerald Waterways, with two sleek 182-passenger ships, will start operations in April. A-Rosa Cruises will launch its 158-passenger A-Rosa Flora in April with a sold-out cruise past the tulip fields of the Netherlands. In Provence, France, the higher-end Uniworld Boutique River Cruises will send out its new 159-guest ship SS Catherine next month. Though the majority of river traffic remains in Europe, Asian rivers are rising, especially in Myanmar, where Pandaw River Expeditions recently launched the 40-passenger Kalaw Pandaw and the Kalay Pandaw, with the 20-guest Kha Byoo Pandaw expected to begin operations by year end. They will be joined by the 42-passenger Sanctuary Ananda, setting out this year on the Irrawaddy and Chindwin Rivers. Cabin upgrades For some cruisers the experience is about comfort. Cabins once felt closer to naval berths — small, efficient, purposeful sleeping quarters — than hotel rooms. But that model has changed with larger and more varied options in cabin design, often mimicking hotel trends. Last spring, Seabourn introduced four penthouse spa suites on its 450-passenger Quest, and plans to add the rooms on two more ships, the Odyssey and Sojourn this year. Located a flight above the spa, the one-bedroom suites match the dcor of the spa and feature oversize showers, designer bath amenities and relaxing music soundtracks. Perhaps to counter allergies as well as wariness of ship-borne viruses, Crystal Cruise’s 1,070-passenger Crystal Serenity was recently remodeled to include 70 specially cleaned and maintained hypoallergenic staterooms outfitted with air filters. Its four top-level suites now resemble spacious apartments with floor-to-ceiling windows, dining areas, butler’s pantries and media rooms. Operating like a hotel concierge floor, with a private restaurant, butler service and complimentary alcohol, MSC Yacht Club aboard the 3,502-passenger MSC Divina, which recently began operating out of Miami, features the Sophia Loren Suite, designed by the actress, with red upholstered furniture in the living room, red walls in the bedroom and black-and-white photos of Loren. Even cheaper quarters have received some attention. Interior rooms on the Disney Dream feature a “magical porthole,” at which real-time images of the sea meet animated Disney characters. And Tauck River Cruising’s two new 130-passenger ships — the Inspire launching this month, and the Savor in June — feature lower deck “loft cabins” with raised seating areas that allow occupants to sit next to windows that are about half the height of the cabin. Short cruises Appealing to both time-pressed travelers and first-time cruisers who may not be certain about committing a full week or more to a ship, abbreviated itineraries are proliferating. The growth of disparate home ports, from New York to Baltimore, Galveston, Tex., Los Angeles and Seattle, has made embarking on short cruises easier for travelers across the country. Princess Cruises launched its fourand five-day Getaway sailings last fall with departures to the Caribbean from Fort Lauderdale and coastal California and Mexico from Los Angeles and San Diego. HapagLloyd Cruises’ 500-capacity Europa2 will begin running four-day trips in the Baltic Sea and Scandinavia this summer. Celebrity Cruises’ recently refurbished 2,170-guest Celebrity Constellation offers fourand five-night Bahamas and Caribbean runs in March and April that will resume next winter. “Cruise lines have always offered cheap and cheerful short trips,” Spencer Brown of CruiseCritic.com said. “The exciting thing now is they are making some of their newer ships available to this short-term market.” CRUISES FROM PAGE 8 SALES € SERVICE € PARTS € INSTALLATIONCorporationMARINE AIR CONDITIONING SPECIALIZING IN YACHTING INDUSTRYGary R.

10 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMApril2014Waterfront Times Family Features — Only one meal has the power to pull even the most tired souls from the comfort of their beds — a delicious, satisfying and beautiful brunch. With its prime positioning between breakfast and lunch, brunch has quite a following of hungry fans. Whether celebrating a special occasion or “just because,” whether it's an upscale or laid-back theme you're after, brunch is an event in itself that brings people together with much anticipation. A savory selection For hosts who like to dabble in the classic morning components of eggs, hash browns and other breakfast fare, there are plenty of delicious recipes to serve up. Take this recipe for Denver Hash brown Omelet, which supplies all the comforts of the diner-menu staple but is very easy to make at home. New take on an old favorite For a hearty, American spin on an Italian favorite, you'll adore the simplicity of this recipe for Skillet Hash brown Frittata. This golden, delicious egg dish features turkey sausage, melted American cheese and hash browns. Sweet and special While savory meals certainly have their place at brunch, a sweet dish is a great complement and the perfect addition for a well-rounded menu. Look for recipes that combine the elements of sweet and salty, like this dish for Potato Cheese and Apple Tarts. Fresh red delicious apples, gooey smoked Gouda or Jack cheese and the creamy, homemade taste of mashed potatoes meld together for bite after delectable bite. Denver Hash Brown OmeletPrep Time: 15 minutes. Cook Time: 25 minutes. Yield: 8 servings. 1 box (4.2 ounces) hash brown potatoes (we used Hungry Jack) No-stick cooking spray 1 tablespoon butter 1 chopped onion, about 1-1/2 cups 1 diced green bell pepper, about 1 cup 8 eggs 1/2 cup milk (whole or 2 percent) 1 teaspoon salt 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese 1 cup diced cooked ham Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray 9-by13-inch pan with no-stick cooking spray. Follow directions for potatoes. Heat skillet over medium heat and add butter. After butter melts, add onion and bell pepper, and cook for 5 minutes. Whisk together eggs and milk in large mixing bowl. Add salt, potatoes, cheese, ham and vegetables; mix to combine. Transfer mixture to prepared baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes, or until cooked through and starting to brown. Cheesy Potato and Apple TartsPrep Time: 15 minutes. Cook Time: 30 minutes. Yield: 12 servings (24 tarts). 1-1/3 cups quality instant mashed potato flakes 1-1/4 cups water 3 tablespoons butter, divided 1/2 teaspoon salt 2/3 cup milk 1 cup shredded smoked Gouda or Jack cheese 1 14 ounce refrigerated piecrust, brought to room temperature 1 halved, cored and thinly sliced red delicious apple 1 teaspoon packed brown sugar 2 teaspoons chopped chives Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat water, 2 tablespoons of butter and salt to boiling in medium pot. Remove from heat, and stir in milk and mashed potato flakes with fork until smooth. Add shredded Gouda or Jack cheese and stir until melted. Cut piecrusts into 24 circles about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Using mini-muffin tin (with cups the size of 1 3/4-by-1-inch), place one pastry circle into each of 24 muffin cups, pressing slightly. Spoon about one tablespoon potato and cheese filling into each cup. Place in oven and bake until pastry edges are golden brown, about 12 to 14 minutes. In small pan, melt remaining tablespoon of butter. Add apple slices and saute until just tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in brown sugar and cook one more minute. When apple slices are cooled enough to handle, place a slice into each cup at an angle, trimming to fit if necessary. Sprinkle with chopped chives and serve. Skillet Hash Brown FrittataPrep Time: 10 minutes. Cook Time: 20 minutes. Yield: 6 to 8 servings 1 carton (4.2 ounces) hash brown potatoes (we use Hungry Jack) 4 turkey sausage patties or 6 links 6 slices turkey bacon 8 eggs 1/4 cup milk 1/2 to 1-1/2 teaspoons hot sauce, based on brand of hot sauce or to taste. Pinch ground black pepper 2 tablespoons butter 1/2 cup diced onion 4 slices or 2/3 cup shredded American or cheddar cheese Fill hash browns carton to fill line with hottest tap water. Let stand 12 minutes. Drain any excess water. Cook turkey sausage and bacon according to package directions. Crumble or chop. Whisk eggs, milk, hot sauce and black pepper in bowl. Melt butter in 10or 12-inch non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened. Spread hash browns evenly in pan and partway up sides. Cook without stirring until light golden brown and crisp on one side, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle crumbled sausage and bacon over potatoes. Pour eggs evenly over and arrange cheese on top. Cover skillet and reduce heat to low; cook until eggs are set in center and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Serve from pan or slide onto platter, then cut into wedges.
