Norwegian Fjords – The most stunning cruise around. If you have not cruised Fjords, you have not yet cruised!

The Costa Mediterranea is a Work of Art

Inspired by the style of Italy’s 17th and 18th palaces, the Costa Mediterranea will show you that a cruise ship can also be a work of art. Even the silverware in the glamorous degli Argentieri Restaurant is unique. You’ll feel pampered in your cabin or suite with luxurious touches and plenty of space in your home away from home. The Ischia Spa aboard the Costa Mediterranea is a two-level wellness center designed to sooth your stress away. In the spa, you’ll find a beautiful solarium, treatment rooms, a gym, sauna, and even a luxurious Turkish bath. The ship also sports four steaming, bubbling hot tubs to melt tension away. When you’d like to work off some energy, the sports complex, and outdoor jogging track welcome you. If you love swimming, four pools are available, including one with a retractable cover and waterslide — perfect for kids and fun-loving adults!

Departing from Amsterdam you will experience an exceptional sailing experience aboard a luxurious ship, which also doubles as your hotel. While on board, there are many ways to enjoy your stay at sea relaxing on the deck, pampering at the spa, exercise at the gym, golf, 4D Cinema (simulated), performances at the theater on 3 levels, luxurious casino, 11 different bars and a lot more choices of entertainment and shopping. When we are docked, you will get to experience the most exciting of the many Norwegian Fjords, turquoise sea, enchanting beaches, beautiful cities and a lot of culture and history.

Scholars & Entertainers

laibl 3

For the past 32 years Rabbi Laibl Wolf has been a spiritual mentor and a worldwide teacher of the mystical side of Judaism. Laibl is a master of, and draws his teachings from, the 4,000-year-old, esoteric and encrypted texts of the Kabbalah which provides a guide to the mysteries of cosmic and human consciousness and which is the source for much of the "new age" wisdom that we are familiar with today.

Although based on the Kabbalah, Laibl's philosophies are modern and progressive, and facilitate the growth of one's inner spirit in a technologically driven society. Although an Orthodox Hassidic Rabbi, his teachings are universal, open to people of all backgrounds and spiritual orientations.

Laibl's teachings focus on personal growth and emotional mastery. He uses the wisdom contained in the Kabalistic texts to reveal the inner workings of the mind-emotion balance. While spiritually based, Laibl's teachings are highly pragmatic. Laibl has translated the complicated Kabbalistic insights into a practical system of application to the minutiae of everyday life. He is able to help people discover the motivation behind their thoughts and emotions, which enables them to understand their behavioral patterns. To this end, Laibl has developed the original system of "Behavioral Kabbalah". which transmutes the ancient mystical teachings into a pathway of personal fulfillment. His teachings bring his audience to deeper levels of spiritual enlightenment. He has called his approach MindYoga®.

Addressing groups as divergent as the American Psychological Association, the Fortune 500 convention, and Buddhist monks, he is often the keynote speaker at worldwide conferences such as the recent "Argentinean Economy and Psycho/Spiritual Solutions" in Argentina. As Laibl is attuned to the similarities between Eastern spirituality and Kabbalist teachings, he has met with many leaders of other spiritual communities including an extensive two hour private session with the Dalai Lama. Melbourne University has appointed Rabbi Wolf as its founding lecturer in Jewish Mysticism and Spirituality.

Laibl has written and produced a highly regarded series of meditation and self-mastery audiovisual materials, which are sold internationally, and is the author of the best selling book, Practical Kabbalah (Three Rivers Press® of Random House, Inc., 1999). He has lectured in over 350 cities across the globe, and is a sought after speaker, conducting retreats, seminars, master classes and training programs continually throughout the world. Through his meditation techniques and MindYoga® approach, Laibl's audiences are able to master their emotions and empower their lives.

The son of Polish Holocaust survivors, Laibl is also a lawyer and educational psychologist, specializing in teenage rebellion. He is the Founder and Director of the Human Development Institute, a foundation dedicated to the progress of humankind through insight and personal mastery. He received his rabbinic ordination from the Chief Rabbi of Israel, and has studied under great Hassidic masters, his foremost mentor being the revered Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson who was known globally for the passionate wisdom he bestowed on humankind. Rabbi Wolf lives in Melbourne, Australia with his wife, Leah, and the younger two of their seven children.

 

Kashrut

About our Kosher Cruises: Eddie's Kosher Travel & Destinations

Combined we are the world's leading Kosher Tour operator with over 30 years experience, having satisfied thousands of Clients from USA, Israel, France, Belgium, Switzerland, UK , Mexico, Australia, South Africa on dozens of Cruises. We provide four gourmet meals a day in our own separate area of the dining room. All our meals are freshly prepared under the Management of  our Executive Chefs aboard each ship.

The Kashrut is under the strict supervision of Rabbi Nehemiah Rotenberg. Raised in Jerusalem and educated at the Ponevezh Yeshiva in Bnei Brak. After his marriage, he studied at the Beit Midrash of Horaah at the “Kol Ya'akov” Yeshiva, as well as with the Rishon LeZion, Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, z"l He was ordained by the Chief Rabbinate of Israel. Rabbi Nehemiah Rotenberg came to Vienna to serve as Rabbi in the community in 2002. During his tenure as Rabbi, he was the head of the "Zehut" Beit Midrash, and during his work in the community he dealt extensively in matters of Kashrus as a representative of many Batai Din (בד"ץ) around the world. Before 2002, while living in Israel he has dealt with kashrus issues and ran a weekly radio program on kashrus. During the past decade Rabbi Rotenberg’s main specialty is turning hotels throughout Europe to be able to provide food of the highest Kashrus level for Pesach and the summer months. Kashrus of a hotel is a distinct job and requires much expertise in the field, familiarity with the industrial kitchens, the form of Kashering an industrial kitchen, and of course extensive knowledge of kosher food products in Europe. His Kashrut team are all hand picked and well versed with many years of experience. Rabbi Rothenberg has spent many years developing the community Kosher list in Vienna for hundreds of food products sold in large retail chains throughout the Europe. This knowledge is very important and gives hotel operators in Europe the ability to bring local products and not need to import from Israel or the USA. His Kashrut experience has further expanded into the Kosher Cruises and he the Rav Hamachshir for Eddie’s Kosher Travel/Destinations Cruise packages. Rabbi Rotenberg works throughout the year to obtain Kosher meat and poultry throughout Europe at the highest kosher level, at the best price. For every shechita Rabbi Rotenberg sends a special overseer on his behalf in order to ensure that the shipment of meat from the start will arrive at the hotel with the utmost supervision.   Rabbi Rottenberg currently serves as part time Rabbi of Savion community in Israel # Further enquiries pls contact Rabbi Nechemia Rottenberg on +972 584038543 / +436889171489 or nr@zehut.org
