A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player The experienced coach was far more positive in his assessment of the home team though, praising Mainz – who dropped to 16th due to Werder’s surprise win – for their efforts in defeat.”My team played really well before the break and got off to a good start [in the second half], but we failed to take our chances and extend our lead,” Heynckes told the club’s website.”You have to admit that Mainz also had good chances in the second half. You have to take into account that teams surpass themselves when they’re in the relegation battle. You’ve seen it in the case of Werder and also today regarding Mainz.”We had five or six gilt-edged chances after the break. If we had taken them we could have easily run down the clock. Instead, our opponents had hope and chances again and again.#M05FCB pic.twitter.com/raHoBlhO6k— FC Bayern English (@FCBayernEN) February 3, 2018″We were too sloppy and not as strong as in the first half when it came to transitions from attack to defence.”Taken altogether the victory was deserved but compliments to Mainz for their display.”last_img read more

Alaska set to welcome mega cruise ships next year

first_img JUNEAU — The first “mega” cruise ship will begin visiting Alaska next summer.The 4,000-passenger Norwegian Bliss starts making port calls in June, CoastAlaska News reported Wednesday. The “megaships” are part of a trend that’s sending more tourists to Alaska by sea.The ships will carry up to twice as many passengers as some current ships in Alaska. The 5,000-passenger Ovation of the Seas begins sailing to Alaska in 2019.“I believe people will notice the size difference in these ships, particularly the Ovation of the Seas,” said John Binkley, president of Cruise Lines International Association’s Alaska branch. “That is significantly bigger than the ships that people would normally be seeing throughout Alaska.”The Bliss will sail weeklong round-trips out of Seattle, stopping in Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway. It will also sail to Sawyer Glacier in Tracy Arm Fjord.The Ovation will be based in Seattle, too. But its Alaska itinerary hasn’t been posted yet.More news:  Beep, beep! Transat hits the streets with Cubamania truckThe Bliss is owned by Norwegian Cruise Line, which will send two smaller ships to Alaska this summer.The Ovation is owned by Royal Caribbean International.Binkley said the reason people want to go to Alaska is because “it’s a somewhat exotic destination, yet it’s on U.S. soil.”“And it’s someplace that people feel comfortable and safe to visit,” he said.Travel expert Chris Gray Faust said the Bliss has the largest go-kart race track on the seas, among other attractions.“One thing that’s very nice for passengers going to Alaska is they have a 20,000-square-foot observation lounge with 180-degree views,” she said. “Passengers in that lounge, they’ll really get the beauty of the landscape right there. They’ll be able to see it all as they come in.”The Ovation of the Seas advertises skydiving and surf simulators, as well as robotic bartenders. But it also has a scenic aspect.“They have what’s known as the North Star, which is a compartment that rises above the ship, like a travelling viewing compartment,” Gray Faust said. “People should be able to get good views from that and certainly from the shore, people will notice that.” Alaska set to welcome ‘mega’ cruise ships next year Thursday, December 14, 2017 By: The Associated Press Tags: Alaska, CLIA << Previous PostNext Post >> Sharelast_img read more
