Disneyland Paris will undergo a $2.5 billion expansion, with the park getting three new areas based on Marvel, Frozen and Star Wars.

The plan is one of the most ambitious projects at Disneyland Paris since its opening in 1992.

“We’re very excited about the future of Disneyland Paris and continue to invest in its long-term success,” said Disney CEO Bob Iger, who made the announcement alongside French President Emmanuel Macron at the Palais de l’Elysee in Paris. “The resort is already the leading tourist destination in Europe, and the transformative expansion we announced today will … drive new opportunities for tourism in this dynamic region.”

Carnival Cruise Line announced that they will offer 17 new sailings to Cuba aboard Carnival Sensation in 2019.

These will be the company’s first round-trip sailings from Miami to Cuba, and will include a day-long call in Havana and stops in Grand Turk, Grand Cayman, Nassau, and the private destinations of Half Moon Cay and Princess Cays.

Hawaiian Airlines has announced the cancellation of three new routes that were supposed to go into service at the beginning of the upcoming summer travel season. The airline had previously announced and sold tickets for three brand new non-stop flights from Oakland and San Francisco to different Hawaiian destinations that were scheduled to begin in April and May. The cancellations are due to the delay in acquiring its new Airbus A321NEO jets stemming from engine issues.

Two of the routes have been canceled until further notice, while one route has been delayed to start until at least in July.

Cathay Pacific’s newest Hong Kong airport lounge The Deck, will welcome business travellers from March 22 2018.

It’s an all-new lounge in what will for some travellers be a familiar old location: the upstairs terrace which used to be the drab and dreary G16 lounge of Cathay’s regional sibling Dragonair (now Cathay Dragon).

A year-long make-over has completely transformed the space into a chic haven with a relaxed “contemporary living room” vibe drawn from the same Ilse Crawford palette as with other recent Cathay Pacific lounges, including its first class and business class cousins at The Pier.
