  It’s a large winged bird. It’s a sailing ship. It’s a giant’s eyelid. It’s a sea creature rising from the deep.

An Extraordinary Circumnavigation of Newfoundland

Tenerife Port City of Santa Cruz Ready to Celebrate Annual Carnival

Streets are draped in mourning. Wailing “widows” in fishnet stockings and miniskirts lament loudly. Paraders dressed as popes, bishops and nuns bless onlookers and each other. It’s “El Entierro de la Sardina” or the “Burial of the Sardine” in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, capital of the largest of the Canary Islands.

Holland America’s Nieuw Statendam has much to offer

By Robert N. Jenkins Art There’s no way to be certain which artworks in the brand-new cruise ship Nieuw Statendam will draw the most attention: Will it be the clear plexiglass, 5-foot-tall statue of David, a copy of Michelangelo’s masterwork, except this one is holding a cellphone in his lowered arm? Or is it the collection of everyday objects — a camera, eyeglasses, high heels, scissors — that are covered in bright cloth that is heavily embroidered?…
