The Adventures by Disney division will offer 21 river cruises in 2019. The voyages will include new nine-night trips on France’s Seine River as well as seven-night Danube and Rhine sailings (Danube and Rhine sailings also during 2018). The river line AmaWaterways will operate river cruises for Disney. The trips take place on new AmaWaterways vessels that have been custom built for the family market with cabin configurations that can hold three or four people – a rarity in river cruising. Shore tours and on-board activities also have been custom-designed with families in mind. The new Seine River trips will combine a two-night stay in Paris with seven nights aboard an AmaWaterways vessel on the Seine. Along the way, passengers will visit small French towns such as Conflans and Vernon. They’ll also travel to the D-Day beaches in Normandy. Disney plans four departures of the Seine itinerary in 2019. Two will be scheduled for the summer and aimed at families. The other two will take place in the fall and be exclusively for adults. The latter will offer curated food- and wine-themed experiences both on and off the ship. Disney said it would offer ten sailings on the Rhine in 2019, two of which will be for adults only. The company will offer seven departures on the Danube that also include one adult-only trip. ______ Check out a new CDC report that sheds light on the state of cleanliness in the seafaring hospitality industry showing that more cruise ships failed health inspections in 2017 than at any other time in the past decade. The Miami Herald recently reported that four Carnival ships failed sanitation inspections in the span of two months.

This year's divisional championship round had seen a 16 percent dip in audience size.Night games generally do better in the ratings than afternoon contests, but not this year. The New England-Jacksonville contest that ended around dinnertime was a better game featuring the league's marquee player in Tom Brady.

  • It’s a story that has worried millions: What exactly is the Equifax data breach? How am I impacted? What can I do now? Since we first began reporting on the enormous breach of 143 million Americans' personal information, we’ve received a lot of feedback from you, our listeners. We know you’re worried about your privacy, your money and your identity. That’s why Consumer Warrior Clark Howard is here for you.  Listen below as Clark takes your questions and arms you with the info you need to know! BACKGROUND Equifax has been under intense public pressure since it disclosed last week that hackers accessed or stole millions of Social Security numbers, birthdates and other information.  On Friday -- the same day two key executives retired immediately -- it gave its most detailed timeline of the breach yet, saying it noticed suspicious network traffic associated with its U.S. online dispute portal web application on July 29.  Equifax said it believes the access occurred from May 13 through July 30.   Equifax had said earlier that it identified a weakness in an open-source software package called Apache Struts as the technological crack that allowed hackers to heist the data from the massive database maintained primarily for lenders.  That disclosure late Wednesday cast the company's damaging security lapse in an even harsher light. The software problem was detected in March and a recommended software patch was released shortly afterward. Equifax said its security officials were 'aware of this vulnerability at that time, and took efforts to identify and to patch any vulnerable systems in the company's IT infrastructure.' The company has hired Mandiant, a business often brought in to deal with major security problems at big companies, to conduct a forensic review. Equifax also said Friday it would continue to allow people to place credit freezes on their reports without a fee through Nov. 21. Originally, the company offered fee-free credit freezes for 30 days after the incident. For much more Equifax content, CLICK HERE to visit Consumer Adviser Clark Howard's official website, Clark.com.
  • If you’ve ever tried to shop for health care by price, you know it’s a frustrating experience. That’s because health care as an industry has steadfastly rejected price transparency, with the exception of nurse-in-a-box operations that generally do post prices. But that frustrating feeling may soon go away thanks to several innovative new websites. Read more: How to hire a medical billing specialist as an advocate Know what you’re going to pay before you go under the knife We’ve reached a point where there a number of sites that can help you shop for health care procedures as varied as MRIs, CT scans, mammograms and blood work. Amino is a free service that allows you to research the cost of a particular procedure at your doctor of choice based on the insurance you have! It pulls together data from other people who have the same insurance who already had the procedure you’re looking for at the doctor you’re considering. The site now boasts pricing data on 550,000 physicians, 78 procedures and 129 insurance companies. Among the procedures you can get a quote for on Amino are ACL surgery, EKGs, hernia surgery, knee arthroscopy, skin tag removal and vasectomy. For example, ACL surgery in Jacksonville, Fla., with United Healthcare as your insurer yields quotes that range from $7,957 to $10,841 for the same procedure at different doctors throughout the area. In another example, a liver biopsy in the Los Angeles area with Aetna can run you anywhere from $3,838 to $4,411. So it pays shop wisely! Another service that lets you comparison shop for pricing of select procedures is Vitals.com. State employees in Kentucky and New Hampshire and employees of Florida’s Jackson Health System have access to this tool that searches by price. Those employees have further incentives to shop based on cost because they can earn between $25 to $500 from their employer by selecting lower-cost providers, according to the Wall Street Journal. A third option for comparison shopping is Healthcare Bluebook, which offers a free Fair Price search tool. You have recourse if medical billing issues arise Medical debt is damaging the credit of around 43 million people, according to the latest figures available. You would expect damaged credit from medical bills to be a problem for the uninsured. But the untold story here is that people with insurance get their credit trashed both because of billing mix-ups and high debt-to-income ratios. Some of that debt is debt that people don’t legitimately owe. That’s because roughly eight in 10 hospital bills have multiple errors, according to Money magazine. So almost always the bill will be wrong, and it won’t be in your favor. If you need help sorting out your bill, you might consider hiring a claims assistance professional or medical billing advocate who will look over your bill and vet it for errors. These people are available in more than half of all states in the country. Visit Claims.org or BillAdvocates.com to locate one near you and expect to pay between $30 and $50 per hour for their services. Anyone who is uninsured and paying retail for expensive medical services should go this route!

  • As college is starting back up, the Better Business Bureau is warning students and parents or guardians of potential scams targeting them. It is not uncommon this time of year for scammers to try to obtain personal and financial information. “In addition to the fact that young adults take the longest to detect identity theft, there is a lot of opportunity for scammers to target students as they prepare for class,” said Warren King, president of the Better Business Bureau of Western Pennsylvania. The BBB offers these tips to avoid falling for these scams: Financial Aid Scams: These scams can include scholarships, financial aid and seminars. A request for some kind of payment up front for a scholarship or student loan is a sign of a scam. Investigate any potential services or consolidation companies by visiting BBB.com or calling 877-267-5222. They also recommend visiting the U.S. Department of Education’s website for information. Online Income Scams: These scams are intended to target students who are unemployed with a quick and easy way to make money. Always research the company’s name and website before participating in these opportunities. Things to consider are how long the company has been in business and any former complaints it has received. Roommate/Rental Scams: In these scams, students are targeted by posts on Craigslist from others looking for a roommate. The BBB suggests to always confirm exactly who you are dealing with by asking for their name, street address and telephone number. Never wire money back to somebody even if it seems like it was a mistake. Also, avoid accepting payments for more than the agreed price and never assume that a check is legitimate. Online Shopping Scams: Since many students shop online for convenience, these scammers are targeting students by selling highly wanted items at a large discounted price. Different online companies are also offering trial offers that may end up charging you in the long run. Before purchasing any merchandise online, make sure the URL link starts with https and look for a small lock icon in the corner of the URL bar. And always confirm the business to check for legitimacy and try contacting them to verify. For additional back-to-school tips to avoid being a victim of these scams, visit the Better Business Bureau website at BBB.com and report any scams to the BBB scam tracker to help prevent others from falling for these scams.

  • JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. – A Florida restaurant was caught trying to cover up a health inspector’s sign after it was shut down by a cockroach infestation, according to the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation. >> Read more trending news Inspectors forced Jaxon Social in in Jacksonville Beach to close on July 18 after they found 23 live roaches and 35 dead roaches in the kitchen. “It’s eat up with roaches,” said former Jaxon Social cook Brian Lee. A former employee later sent ActionNewsJax.com a photo that showed a handwritten sign on the restaurant’s door. It covered the orange health notice left by inspectors. The handwritten sign said, “Closed for technical difficulties.” Officials said an inspector found the covered sign during a recent follow-up inspection. Kathleen Keenan, deputy director of communications for DBPR, said a division inspector spoke to the restaurant’s operator, and the health notice has since been properly displayed. The restaurant has undergone at least seven inspections since it was closed. An inspector determined as recently as Wednesday that there were still too many live roaches to reopen the restaurant. >> Read more Floridoh! stories “If you open one of the refrigerator doors and pop open the seal, they fall out like,” Lee said. “It’s like you’ve torn the corner off a bag of Skittles. It’s disgusting.” The restaurant’s owner said exterminators were brought into the restaurant Wednesday and that it should reopen after another inspection Friday. The owner said that the restaurant be re-branded before it opens again. According to Department of State records, the restaurant is licensed as KC Crave, LLC.

It’s not uncommon for the airline to offer one-way fares from $49, $39, $29 and even $19, but you need to know that the extras will cost you. “Frontier is one of the cheapest airlines out there, and many times throughout the year they’ll have one-way fares for $20,” said Clark Deals editor Charis Brown. “But the key to keeping your costs low with Frontier is to travel light. Extras such as baggage and advance seat assignments can make your ticket more expensive.” Frontier says it’s offering $39 one-way tickets to celebrate its expansion.

  • As of early Sunday morning, FDOT says for the next 2 years, traffic will be shifted on the Fuller Warren Bridge beginning at the Park Street ramp all the way past the San Marco Boulevard exit. FDOT says drivers heading south will see lanes shift to the inside and that shift will create a work zone for construction crews to start expansion work on the Fuller Warren as part of the Your 10&95 project. We told you about this shift back in November, and due to weather and other circumstances, its been pushed back until today. FDOT says, as part of the project, construction crews will be adding another lane on I-95 in both directions on the Fuller Warren as well as a Shared Use Path. The path will be available for people walking or riding their bike from Riverside to San Marco, or vice versa. FDOT is urging drivers to use caution through this area, for your safty, as well as the construction crews safty. The Your 10&95 project is projected to be compleated by the summer of 2020.
  • Construction crews have been working on the Florida Department of Transportation’s Your10&95 project since May of 2017.  While crews have nearly a year of construction under their belt, the project still has two more years to go. FDOT says they expect the complete project to be done by the summer of 2020.  The goal of the Your10&95 project is to make operational improvements and enhancements to the interchange at I-95 and I-10, The Fuller Warren Bridge, and along east side of U.S. 17 north between McDuff Avenue and Rosselle Street. FDOT says the construction is necessary to cope with the increasing volume of traffic.  “Approximately 250,000 vehicles use the interchange every day, but that is expected to rise dramatically to approximately 290,000 daily users in 2040.” Changes to I-95 and the Fuller Warren: This project will widen the Fuller Warren Bridge expanding northbound and southbound lanes from three lanes to four. Construction crews will also add a Shared Use Path on the Fuller Warren for pedestrians and bicyclists connecting San Marco and Riverside neighborhoods. Pedestrians and bicyclists will not have to worry about their safety, FDOT says they will be separated from traffic by a 10-foot shoulder and a stand barrier wall that is three and a half feet, with an additional curved fence. FDOT says a traffic shift is expected to happen on I-95 southbound along the Fuller Warren Bridge during the month of February. It was originally slated to happen on December 4th, 2017. FDOT says the southbound to the inside of the Fuller Warren Bridge beginning at the Park Street ramp, and go back to its normal configuration after the exit ramp to San Marco Boulevard.  Changes to I-10:  Construction crews will be working to provide a dedicated ramp to Irene and Stockton Street. This is aimed at reducing the weaving traffic merging from I-95 southbound to I-10 west. FDOT says crews will be widening the overpass from I-95 north to I-10 westbound, allowing for future improvements along I-10 west. When it comes to lane closures on the interstates, FDOT says they do not plan to have lanes closed during the day between 5:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Changes to U.S. 17 North: New sound barriers will be built for the neighborhoods along the east side of U.S. 17 north from McDuff Avenue to Rosselle Street. FDOT says there will be lane closures on U.S. 17 North to make this a reality. However, lane closures will not happen between 6 a.m. – 10 a.m. and no closures southbound on U.S. 17 from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. The Florida Department of Transportation hired Archer Western as the contractor to complete this project for $126 million.  Click here to learn more about the Your10&95 project and to get a heads up on when you can expect to see lane closures and shifts for your ride.
