Shard Team To Build World’s Tallest Tower


The record for the world’s tallest tower is set to be broken yet again… The new skyscraper will measure one kilometre high and will be located in Saudi Arabia.

Mace, the firm behind London’s now famous Shard, will build the skyscraper in a joint venture with construction company EC Harris in Jeddah.

Plans for the tower, known as the Kingdom Tower, were announced 18 months ago, but Mace, the builders of the Shard and construction company EC Harris were only named as the firms behind the tower’s construction on February 21.

The tower will reach a height of 1,000 meters, nearly 3 times the height of the Shard and would overtake the Burj Khalifa in Dubai as the world’s tallest skyscraper.

The Kingdom Tower will be the centerpiece of the $20bn Kingdom City urban re-development project taking place in the north of Jeddah by the Red Sea.

According to Mace, the Kingdom Tower will serve as “a mixed-use building featuring a five-star luxury Four Seasons hotel, Four Seasons serviced apartments, first class office space, luxury condominiums and an observatory that will be higher than the world’s current highest observation deck.”

Construction will take five years and is expected to begin by the middle of this year.

iPhone 6 Release Date News


This article has been completely updated to include the latest speculation.

When Apple unveiled the iPhone 5, the reaction was a bit muted: where previous phones were massive leaps forward, the iPhone 5 was a bit longer and a lot easier to scratch.

So what can we expect from the next iPhone, the iPhone 6 or 5S? Let's see what the crystal balls are saying.

iPhone 6 and the iPhone 5S are two different phones

The rumour mill doesn't seem too sure whether the next iPhone is going to be the iPhone 5S or the iPhone 6. Given the iPhone's history – from the 3G onwards, there's always been a half-step S model before the next numbered iPhone – we'd bet on an iPhone 5S first and an iPhone 6 a few months later.

iPhone 6 release date

Some pundits predict a summer release for the iPhone 6, while Money Morning reckons that the iPhone 5's lack of NFC and Jumbotron display is because Apple's got a proper iPhone ready for a springtime release.

It's quite likely that Apple is moving to a two-phones-per-year upgrade cycle, but we'd bet on a springtime 5S model and a bigger, iPhone 6, update in the Autumn, probably September.

Even Digitimes reckons a springtime iPhone 6 is unlikely: it's predicting a summertime reveal for Apple's next generation phones, which again fits with a WWDC unveiling.

iPhone 5SApple may have a new roadmap, with new phones every spring and autumn

iPhone 6 cases

Multiple rumours say Apple's working on plastic cases for its next iPhone, mixing plastic and metal in such a way that "the internal metal parts [are] able to be seen from outside through special design."

It's unclear whether such cases would be for the iPhone 5S or iPhone 6, or if Apple is simply considering making cheaper iPhone 4s to sell when the iPhone 3GS reaches the end of its life.

iPhone 5SPretty, yes, but also horrifically scratch-prone. Will your next iPhone have a plastic back?

The iPhone 6 will finally do NFC

That's what iDownloadblog reckons, quoting Jefferies analyst Peter Misek: it'll have a better battery too, he says.

The iPhone 6 will run iOS 7 and the iPhone 5S probably won't

Developers are seeing new iPhone model identifiers in their server logs: the device identifies itself as the iPhone 6,1 (the iPhone 5 is 5,1 or 5,2) running iOS 7, and its IP address is an Apple one. If the two-phones strategy is true, we'd expect Apple to unveil the next major revision of iOS at its WWDC conference in June, with it shipping on the iPhone 6 a few months later.

iPhone 6 storage

We've already seen a 128GB iPad, so why not a 128GB iPhone 6? Yes, it'll cost a fortune, but high-spending early adopters love this stuff.

It may not have a home button

According to Business Insider, of the many iPhone 6 prototypes Apple has made, one has a giant Retina+ IGZO display and a "new form factor with no home button. Gesture control is also possibly included".

iPhone 6 screen size

Take this one with a pinch of salt, because China Times isn't always right: it reckons the codename iPhone Math, which may be a mistranslation of iPhone+, will have a 4.8-inch display. The same report suggests that Apple will release multiple handsets throughout the year over and above the iPhone 5S and 6, which seems a bit far-fetched to us.

The screen may be magic

Patents show that Apple has been thinking about magical morphing technology that can hide sensors and even cameras. Will it make it into the iPhone 6? Probably not.

iPhone 6 cameraYou'll probably still be able to see the camera lens in the iPhone 6

iPhone 6 processor

Not a huge surprise, this one: the current processor is a dual-core A6, and the next one will be a quad-core A7. The big sell here is more power with better efficiency, which should help battery life.

Expect to see it in the 2013 iPad first, and expect to see an improved A6 processor, the A6X, in the iPhone 5S.

iPhone 6 camera

Apple's bought camera sensors from Sony before, and this year we're going to see a new, 13-megapixel sensor that takes up less room without compromising image quality.

The new iPhone will have better 4G LTE

On its UK launch, just one UK network had 4G LTE: Everything Everywhere, which currently offers 4G on the 1800MHz band. In 2013, all the other big names will be coming on board, offering 4G in other frequency bands. International iPhones already work across different 4G bands to the UK, so you can expect the UK iPhone 6 (and possibly the iPhone 5S) to be more promiscuous than the iPhone 5.

The Wi-Fi may be 802.11ac

Apple likes to lead Wi-Fi standards adoption – its Airport really helped make Wi-Fi mainstream – and there's a good chance we'll see ultra-fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi in Apple kit this year. It's faster than Lighting, and not very frightening.

It may get wireless charging

Wireless charging still isn't mainstream. Could Apple help give it a push? CP Tech reports that Apple has filed a patent for efficient wireless charging, but then again Apple has filed patents for pretty much anything imaginable.

The tasty bit of this particular patent is that Apple's tech wouldn't just charge one device, but multiple ones.

50 Really Useful iPad Tips And Tricks


With great new features like two video cameras, a faster processor and a Retina display, the new iPad is the world’s best tablet device.

It’s also fully capable of running the latest version of Apple’s iOS operating system and great apps like iMovie and GarageBand.

Here we present 50 really useful iPad tips. We cover everything from customising your Home screen through to getting more from built-in apps like Mail and Safari.

The vast majority of these tips will also work on the original iPad and iPad 2, so owners of any generation of iPad shouldn’t feel neglected.

For 50 more iPad tips, check out a new iPad app called 100 Tricks & Tips for iPad 2, brought to you by our colleagues on MacFormat.

1. Create folders

iOS now supports folders. To create a folder all you need to do is tap and hold on an app until they all start to jiggle, then drag the app over another icon and release.

Your iPad will create a folder with both the apps in. The folder will be named according to the category of the apps it contains, but you can rename it as you like.

2. Access all running apps

Double-clicking the Home button shows you all the apps that are running on your iPad in a bar along the bottom of the screen. To switch to a running app just tap on it here in this bar. Just swipe the screen downwards to remove this bar.

iPad 2 running apps

3. Orientation Lock or Mute?

The internet got mightily upset when Orientation Lock was replaced with Mute on the iPad during the last iOS update. Apple listened, and now you can head to Settings > General to choose between Lock Rotation and Mute.

iPad 2 orientation

4. Passcode Denied… DELETE ALL!

If you’re carrying around sensitive data, you can now enable a feature that’ll erase all the data on the device if someone inputs the incorrect passcode 10 times. Navigate to Settings > General > Passcode Lock > Erase Data.

iPad 2 passcode

5. Home Sharing

First, turn on Home Sharing in iTunes (Advanced menu) and on your iPad (Settings > Music/Video and enter your Apple ID). Next, launch the Music or Video app on your iPad. In the Music app, tap the “More” button at the bottom, find the little house with “Shared” next to it. Tap on that and then on one of the Shared Libraries. It might take a few seconds to update, but then you can listen to all of that Library’s media on your iPad. For video, tap the Shared tab at the top of the screen.

Really useful iPad tips

6. Control iPad notifications

By going to Settings > Notifications, you can decide which apps can pop up alerts, which have notifications at the top of the screen, and which appear in Notification Center. This means you can make sure that noisy apps don’t clog things up for you, and you notice the important things.

Really useful iPad tips

7. Go VPN

The iPad supports a VPN connection. To configure it, go to Settings, then General > Network. Select the VPN and move the slider to On, then add a VPN configuration with your server and account details.

iPad 2 vpn

8. Stop asking to join Wi-Fi networks

If you’re fed up of getting bugged by messages asking if you’d like to join this or that Wi- Fi network all the time then head to Settings, Wi-Fi and turn off Ask to Join Networks. You can still join any network that will have you from this same screen, it just won’t bug you constantly when the opportunity arises.

iPad 2 wifi

9. Turn battery percentage off

Do you find the battery charge percentage distracting? The good news is you can turn it off very easily. Go to Settings, General, Usage and you can turn it off here.

iPad 2 battery percentage

10. Quick volume mute

When the iPad first launched, there was no dedicated mute button anywhere on the device. However, with iOS 4.3 Apple has given you the choice of using the lock switch to mute the sound or lock the iPad’s orientation. Either way, a good tip for quickly muting your iPad is to press and hold the Volume-down button.

iPad 2 volume mute

11. Use an Apple keyboard

Missing a real keyboard? Any Apple Wireless Keyboard will work with the iPad. In fact, your iPad will work with any Bluetooth keyboard. Some iPad cases have a keyboard built in, which can be handy.

12. Connect to an HD TV

You can connect the iPad 2 and new iPad to your HD television using Apple’s Digital AV Adapter (which connects from your 30-pin Dock adaptor to a HDMI port) or a plain old Apple VGA Adaptor. Both are available from the Apple Store. The iPad 2 and new iPad support video mirroring, so your entire Home screen will appear on the TV, not just the videos you play.

Connect ipad 2 to hdtv

13. AirPlay: Stream movies, photos and music

Whenever you see the AirPlay icon on your iPad it means you can stream whatever media you’re viewing to your Apple TV, which is usually connected to your living room TV. All you need to do is tap the AirPlay icon (which looks like a rectangle with a triangle in it) and it starts playing automatically – it’s so simple!

Stream ipad 2

14. Take an iPad screenshot

You can take a screenshot on your iPad by pressing Home and then the Sleep/Wake button. The screen will flash and you’ll hear a click, indicating that a photo has been taken. Your screen shots are saved automatically in your Photos gallery. Here, you can view or email them as you see fit.

15. Avoid underpowered USB docks

The iPad does not charge when you connect it to some USB docks or even certain ports on some notebooks. Instead, plug in to a high power USB port (check you computer’s specs, or use a powered USB dock). On some PCs, USB ports on the front of the computer are lower power, so you will need to plug into one on the back.

16. Use Multitasking Gestures

Multitasking Gestures, which utilise four and five finger gestures to let you switch between apps, to bring up the multitasking bar, and to close an app and go back to the Home screen. You can turn them on in Settings > General, but be warned that they clash with some apps.

iPad 2 multitasking gestures

17. Restrict your Spotlight searches

Swipe left on the Home screen to reveal the Spotlight search. By default it searches everything including songs in your iPod, podcasts, apps and events. To restrict the areas it searches, since you may not want all these categories included, look in Settings > General > Spotlight Search.

iPAd 2 spotlight searches

18. Add a Google Calendar

Want to add your Google Calendar to the iPad’s Calendar app? No problem. In Settings open Mail, Contacts, Calendars. Add an account and tap on Other. Tap on Add CalDAV Account and enter your Google Account credentials (the Server is Exit the Settings app and tap on the Calendar app and all your events should appear. By default all calendars are displayed, but you can tap on the Calendars button to choose which ones are shown.

iPad 2 google calendar

19. Find My iPhone (or iPad)

Apple’s Find My iPad works for all iCloud users. In Settings > iCloud, enter your Apple ID and then turn Find My iPad on near the bottom of the screen. Now if you lose your iPad, you can go to or use Find My iPhone on another device to locate the iPad. If you have a Wi-Fi-only model, it will need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network for this to work.

Find my iphone

20. Use AirPrint

Thanks to AirPrint you can print right from your iPad, provided you’ve got a compatible printer, of course. If you’ve got an AirPrint ready printer then you just choose Print from the Share menu for virtually any open document. AirPrint works with the new range of printers from HP, and you can use a Mac app called Printopia ( to print to any printer connected to a Mac.


21. Use a Smart Cover

Apple’s iPad Smart Cover (from £35/$39) is a must have iPad accessory – it’s not just a dumb cover. When you draw it over the iPad’s screen it puts it to sleep for you, and wakes it up when you open it. Also, it latches onto special magnets built into the side of the iPad 2 and new iPad, so it’s a perfect fit. It doesn’t work with the original iPad.

Smart cover

22. Share from Pages

Transferring Pages documents from your iPad by syncing with iTunes on your Mac or PC is a real hassle. It’s much quicker to use the Share menu to email the finished document to wherever you need it to be. Also, you can email it as a Word or PDF document if you like.

Share from pages

23. Turn iPad caps lock on

To type a capital letter on the onscreen keyboard you first tap the left or right shift key, then the letter. If you need to type a whole word in caps this can be painful. Save time typing in caps by turning the caps lock on. To do this double tap on either shift key.

iPad caps lock

24. Copy and paste

You can quickly copy and paste text by tapping and holding down, and then choosing Select to select the exact portion of text you’d like the copy. Next tap Copy, then go to a different app, and tap and hold down again, then tap Paste from the menu that appears. Top tip: To select an entire paragraph of text you need to tap four times.

iPad 2 copy paste

25. Replace a word

When you hold down on a word to copy it, choose Select, then you will see a new option: Replace. Tap this and, you can see suggestions for alternative words that have similar spellings. It’s a good way of quickly correcting typos.

iPad 2 replace word

26. Hidden apostrophe key on the keyboard

This is a great tip for any app, such as Notes, Pages or Mail, that you type into using the iPad’s virtual keyboard. Rather than having to go to the second screen of the keyboard every time you want to type an apostrophe (which is a real pain) just tap and hold on the ! key and a hidden apostrophe option will appear – then just slide your finger up to access it.

iPad apostrophe

27. Quick quotes

You don’t have to move the iPad’s second keyboard screen to enter a quotation mark either. Simply tap and hold over the ? key and a quotation symbol appears, which you can select by moving your finger upwards.

iPad quote marks

28. Add a full stop

Another great keyboard tip for typing in apps such as Pages, Notes or Mail is to doubletap the space bar at the end of a sentence. This adds a full stop and a space for you, which can be enormously time-saving when you’re writing long articles.

iPad full stop

29. Dim your iBooks

You can lower the brightness setting down to a low level using the Brightness option under Settings. But the iBooks app has its own brightness slider, which you can use to lower the level down more conveniently.

iBooks brightness

30. Change days

There’s no way to swipe to change between days in the Calendar app, but don’t forget the navigation bar along the bottom of the screen – this can be used to switch to different days (or weeks/months, depending on the view you’ve chosen). The current day is always shown in blue, or you can just tap the Today button to return to the current day.

iPad calendar

31. Street View in Maps

The Maps app running Google’s Street View is one of the coolest features of the iPad, yet accessing it is so confusing few people even know it’s there. To access Street View you need to have dropped a red pin on the map (which happens when you do a search). You then tap the red and white icon of a person to enter Street View.

iPad street view

32. Directions in Maps

There’s no free sat nav for the iPad, but directions in Maps are a substitute if you’re walking, driving or taking the bus. Just tap Directions on the top left of Maps and the iPad even works out where you are right now, then takes you step-by-step through each stage of your journey. It will even suggest more than one route, so you can take or avoid motorways if you want, for example.

iPad maps

33. Display PDFs

There are two ways to display PDFs on your iPad: you can either email them to your iPad, in which case you get an Open in iBooks button appear, or you can sync PDFs from your Mac or PC via the Books tab in iTunes.

To do this just drag and drop the PDF into iTunes, then when you sync your iPad click on the Books tab and select the PDFs you’d like to sync. In iBooks you click on PDFs in your library to see the PDFs you have ready to display.

iBooks pdf

34. Camera focus and meter

In the Camera app, tap on your subject to both focus on and meter the light properly. In this shot, notice how the chair is dark and the boy outside is properly metered. You can reverse that by simply tapping on the chair.

iPad camera focus

35. Get a grip

You’ll probably hold the iPad by its sides, but it’ll rotate to put the shutter button at the bottom, making you wobble when you reach for it. So use the orientation lock to put the shutter where you can easily thumb it, then just rotate your images or videos afterward in an image editor.

iPad rotate

36. Take charge in FaceTime

Once you’ve started a video call, you can move the picture-in-picture window that shows you by simply dragging it around with your finger.

iPad 2 facetime

37. Photo Booth fun

Sure, you’re great, but Photo Booth is even more fun if you point it at friends or family. Simply tap the ‘twirly camera’ icon in the bottom right. to use the camera on the back You can also snap stills by hitting the shutter button, but Photo Booth doesn’t do video.

Photo booth

38. Download photos straight from your camera to your iPad

You can’t plug an SD card from a digital camera straight into your iPad to view the photos, but you can purchase the iPad Camera Connection kit from Apple. With this device attached you can transfer photos straight from your camera’s memory card. Get it from the Apple Store online.

39. Quicker websites

Save time typing web addresses in Safari by using the iPad’s “.com” key when typing in a URL. A little-known timesaver is that if you hold down the .com key you get access to a menu that offers a and other options too.

iPad com key

40. Quick Safari scroll

You can jump up to the top of any web site – indeed any list – by tapping on the top of the title window. It’s much faster than scrolling by hand.

iPad quick scroll

41. Zoom in on websites

You can zoom in on any website by pinching out with two fingers on the screen. This also makes it easier to select words and tap links. To zoom out again, just pinch in with two fingers. Double-tap on any text or image to auto-zoom so it fills the screen.

iPad zoom in website

42. Turn on Bookmarks bar in Safari

We all know you can tap the bookmarks icon in the Safari toolbar to access your bookmarks, but you can significantly cut down the number of taps it takes to get to them by turning on your Safari Bookmarks Bar permanently. In the Settings app, tap Safari, then turn Always Show Bookmarks Bar to ON.

iPad safari bookmarks

43. Clear browsing history in Safari

Need to cover your tracks online? You can delete your Safari browser history in a flash. Just open the Settings app, then tap Safari and tap on Clear History. Note you can also wipe your Cookies and clear your Cache here too. There’s also a Private Browsing mode you can turn on, so your history won’t be tracked. Turn this on in Settings > Safari.

iPad clear browsing history

44. Open Safari links in a new tab

You can open links in a new Safari tab, rather than always opening them in the current one. Just tap and hold on the link and a pop-over menu appears giving you the option to open the link in a new tab.

really useful iPad tips

45. Find text on a page

You can search for a particular word on an open page in Safari. Type your word into the Google search box. You’ll see a list of suggestions appear, and near the bottom you’ll see “On This Page”, showing how many times that word appears on the page. Tap the Find option to go to the first instance of the word.

Find text on a page

46. Turn off iPad email alert chimes

You can turn off the chime for new emails. Go to Settings, then General, then Sounds and turn off the New Mail sound. You can also adjust sound levels here.

iPad email alert

47. Preview more of your emails

The iPad’s Mail app defaults to previewing two lines of each email before you tap on it. Sometimes however it would be handier to be able to see more of an email before loading the whole thing in, especially if you are on a slow connection. To do this open the Settings app, then tap on Mail, Contacts, Calendars and change the Preview options to add more lines.

iPad mail preview

48. Turn off iPad push mail

Most mail accounts default to Push as a delivery mechanism, if available. This automatically ‘pushes’ any new emails your way as soon as they are available. If you find this annoying or distracting you can set your Mail accounts to check for new messages at intervals, or manually so they only check for new messages when you tap the Refresh button. To turn off Push, select the Settings app and Mail, Contacts, Calendars and choose Fetch New Data, then turn Push on or off.

Turn off push mail

49. Make an iPad backup

If you want to make sure your iPad’s data is properly backed up then you can force iTunes to back it up. When you’re conencted to your Mac or PC, open up iTunes and right-click on your iPad in the Devices list and select Back up. However, you can also use iCloud to back up. Turn this on in Settings > iCloud. When you do so, your iPad will stop automatically backing up to your PC.

iPad backup

50. iPad is flat and won’t charge

If your iPad battery is completely flat then it can take a while for the red battery symbol to appear when you plug it in to charge, indicating that it is charging. Don’t panic, just leave it plugged in and wait – the charging symbol will appear eventually.

The Mini Clubman Bond Street


The special limited edition Mini Clubman Bond Street will make its official entrance at the Geneva motor show in March before going on sale worldwide.

The Clubman Bond Street is the latest in a long line of London-inspired MINI special editions such as the Camden, Bayswater and Baker Street, and as such comes with custom Midnight Black metallic paintwork and Cool Champagne contrasts on the roof, wing mirrors and C-pillars and sits on a set of 17-inch two-spoke alloy wheels.

Inside, the instrument panel is wrapped in black leather, as is the steering wheel, and high-tech features include climate control, an on-board computer, a ‘Sport’ button for increased performance, stiffer suspension and driver involvement and cruise control for when the journeys become long and monotonous.

Mini Clubman Bond Street Interior

Prospective owners will have a choice of up to four engine options — depending on their territory — consisting of two gas engines and two diesel-powered options: the MINI Cooper (122hp), MINI Cooper S (184hp), MINI Cooper D (112hp) and MINI Cooper SD (143hp). All engines are linked to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, with a six-speed automatic available as an option.

The Mini Clubman, which will only be offered for a limited period, will enter production in March and will be priced at $30,000.

Harrods Will Open Its First Hotel In Kuala Lumpur


Qatar Holding has recently signed an agreement with Jerantas, a Malaysian company in order to start building a Harrods hotel in Kuala Lumpur.

The project is due for completion in 2018 and will take over two parcels of land currently occupied by Chulan Square and Sri Melayu Restaurant.

When completed, the integrated development will also feature two residential towers, a retail podium and an office block.

It will be the first of the three Harrods Hotels, as it is scheduled to be completed slightly ahead of its counterpart in London. The third Harrods Hotel will be in Italy.

Rolls Royce Wraith: First Official Image


Rolls-Royce Motor Cars published Tuesday the first official image of its new model Wraith, which will be presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2013.

The BMW-owned luxury car company is being typically vague about what potential owners can expect from the new vehicle, other than that it will do justice to the name Wraith, a powerful V6 Rolls-Royce developed in 1938.

Of the new car, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO Rolls-Royce Motor Cars said: “Rolls-Royce Wraith will draw superlatives when it is unveiled in Geneva.

Expect the boldest design, the most dramatic performance and the most powerful Rolls-Royce that has ever played host to the famous Spirit of Ecstasy figurine.”

A 128GB iPad On the Way?


Apple could soon release a new 128GB iPad. This latest rumor is based on analysis of the source code of the beta version of iOS 6.1, Apple’s future mobile operating system, which will allow for 128GB devices for the first time.

The release of a new 128GB iPad is imminent, and would incorporate no other major changes to the fourth-generation tablet which was released in November 2012.

The tablet would therefore be available in a fourth model in addition to the classic 16, 32 and 64GB versions. So far, there is no suggestion as to what kind of pricing such a model would be given.

The First Arabian Supercar: LykanHypersport 2013


The Arab world’s first true supercar, the LykanHypersport 2013, is turning heads in its official debut at the Qatar Motor Show this week.

  The LykanHypersport 2013′s creators, Beirut-based W Motors, claim that its flat-six, twin-turbocharged engine delivers 750hp and will propel the car from 0 to 100 kph in 2.8 seconds to reach the breakneck maximum speed of 390 kph. In doing so the car is entering Bugatti Veyron territory in terms of performance levels.

But to be a true hypercar, performance and luxury must go hand in hand, and so for those who demand the finer things in life, the car’s LED headlights are diamond-encrusted while the seats feature real gold stitching.

w motors lykan hypersport

The instrument panel uses a revolutionary 3D virtual holographic display and many of its functions and commands are motion- and gesture-activated.

Only seven examples of the LykanHypersport 2013 will ever be produced and each one will come with a 24/7 concierge service and a special edition $200,000 Cyrus Klepcys Watch also limited to seven examples.

The LykanHypersport 2013 will retail for $3.4 million with the first orders expected to be fulfilled in September 2013.

First Chinese Luxury Cruise Liner Starts Maiden Voyage


China’s first luxury liner, the Henna, was inaugurated on January 26 at the Sanya Phoenix Island international port.
This luxury cruise liner, owned by HNA Cruises, can accommodate 1965 passengers in 739 cabins including nine suites with balconies. Facilities aboard include restaurants, designer shops, casinos, cinemas, spas and pools amongst others.

From January to April, Henna will sail between Sanya, Ha Long Bay and Da Nang, while its itinerary from May to September will see it cruise through Tianjin, Incheon and Jeju Island.

According to the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) and the European Cruise Council (ECC), China is set to dominate the cruise market in a few years.
