CruisePhilly Announces its 2009 Cruising Season
NCL Majesty

CruisePhilly closed its 2008 season on November 1, when the Norwegian Majesty made its final sailing to the Southern Caribbean. In 2009, CruisePhilly is turning the cruising season upside down when the Norwegian Majesty returns with expanded cruises to Canada throughout September and closing with fall trips to Bermuda.

For those wanting a quick getaway, Norwegian Majesty will be making one five-day cruise to Canada and New England, kicking off the CruisePhilly season on August 29. The trip will be followed by three consecutive 10-day sailings to Canada and New England - the longest Canadian cruises from Philadelphia to date. These 10-day cruises will call on Bay of Fundy/St. John, Sydney, Charlotte, Halifax and Portland, Maine. When fall sets in in October, cruisers can travel to the pink sunny beaches of Bermuda when the Norwegian Majesty makes four consecutive seven-day sailings to St. George's beginning October 3.

Make your travel plans early for the best rates and packages. For more information visit www.CruisePhilly. com.

Tech Tip: Microsoft Windows 7

2009 will bring some changes to Microsoft. The software giant will be releasing a beta version of Windows 7. While the system will not be going on sale until early 2010, PC users can test the newest updates next year.

Microsoft is hoping to get Vista's reputation behind them with the new product. Windows 7 will need less memory to operate, run faster and will restore the "add printer" feature that was removed in Vista.
