World's First Eco Island!

Image
The Tokelau group of islands in the South Pacific has recently began running on solar power, becoming the first nation operating through sustainable means.

Located in the Western Polynesian tropical moist forests region, Tokelau enjoys sunshine all year round, which makes solar installations well-suited for the area.

New solar panels will replace the 2,000 barrels of diesel, annually used by the island's 1,400 residents, and additional energy will be harvested in the form of bio fuel made from local coconuts!

We may as well call them "Coconut Islands"! It's just more suitable!

All jokes aside though, this is a great development and we hope we can see the expansion of this achievement in the near future for the sake of all humanity.

Tipping on board US Cruise Ships is getting out of hand!

Image
As it turns out, tipping on board has started to get out of control.

Tipping is more alive than ever since, apparently, it sustains the Crew of major Cruise Ships, according to a revelation made by the US Government as part of its plans to regulate the cruise industry.

Recently, Jane Greene, a lover of cruising, reported that on her last Cruise trip, she found a surprise charge on her final bill which included a hefty and automatic tip for the crew.

Take Oceania's policy as an example:
Each Guest occupying staterooms must daily pay gratuities of $14.50. Plus, an 18% service gratuity automatically added to all beverage purchases, spa services and dinner at its signature restaurant, La Reserve. As if this wasn't enough, most of the Crew do not consider gratuity a tip making you feel obligated to ante up once again. By the way, a gratuity and a tip are more or less the same thing.
When this Guest Greene contacted Oceania for an explanation, she was advised that this is the cruise …
