Natasha Shaman
Negril, Jamaica: Natasha Shaman is not your typical Russian diva. She is as beautiful as the Siberian sunrise and she has worked the fashion ramps from Moscow to Milan with her considerable endowments as a model. But Natasha has also embraced a life of extreme adventure that has enabled her to visit eighteen countries. She has swam with sharks, participated in Russian auto rallies, secured her boating and gun licenses, and she has even been a kidnap survivor. Her next challenge is taking her favorite twelve men, her Men of Dream 2010 to Hedonism 11 in Negril, Jamaica for an all-you-can-stand buffet of unrestrained pleasures. Dates are December 5 to 12 and it will certainly be a December to remember.

Linking growers to the tourism industry creates wealth for small farmers while simultaneously reducing the high cost of importing expensive food, asserted a development expert.

"Furthermore, collecting traditional recipes from rural areas enables chefs to increase the amount of local dishes offered to visitors," said Lelei LeLaulu, vice president of the the Caribbean Media Exchange on Sustainable Tourism (CMEx).

Dubbed "Roots To Restaurants," the initiative was served up at the 19th edition of CMEx in Kingston, Jamaica early October which focused on tourism linkages.

ImageBroward County's Port Everglades experienced its highest multi-day cruise passenger count ever with a record 17 percent growth this past year, and Port officials expect the trend to continue in 2011.

More than 3.3 million multi-day cruise guests sailed to and from Port Everglades during fiscal year 2010 (October 1, 2009 through September 30, 2010) compared to 2.8 million in FY2009. The number of multi-day passengers is expected to climb another 6 percent to 3.5 million in FY2011 with the addition of Royal Caribbean International's second 5,400-passenger Oasis-class cruise ship, Allure of the Seas, sailing every Sunday from Port Everglades beginning in December 2010 and a new long-term agreement with Carnival Corporation that is expected to bring 25.5 million cruise passengers to the Port over the next 15 years.
