Silvercar Drives Away With Top Honors At The 2015 Austin A-List Awards

Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 19, 2015

Silvercar has been named to the 2015 Austin A-List by the Austin Chamber of Commerce through its Innovate Austin initiative and South by Southwest Interactive.

Selected by a panel of independent judges from more than 275 nominations, Silvercar was officially revealed and named to the annual Austin A-List of Hottest Startups in ceremonies held at ACL Live at the Moody Theater.

Silvercar’s Austin A-List win in May comes as the company builds on its tremendous momentum. In March, Silvercar bested Ritz-Carlton to win Eye For Travel’s “Best Mobile Strategy” award. In April, Silvercar CEO Luke Schneider was named a finalist for 2015 EY Entrepreneur Of The Year, and Silvercar CFO Chris Donus was named a finalist for The Austin Business Journal’s CFO Of The Year.

Silvercar tripled its business last year and doubled it again in the first quarter of 2015. It commenced operations at Fort Lauderdale Int’l Airport on May 15th and is set to welcome the first Silvercar customers to Chicago O’Hare on June 15th. Silvercar has announced plans to expand to at least three additional markets this year and is on pace to grow another 300% in 2015. “We’re doing things right. Giving customers what they want—when, where, and how they want it. The rest of the industry is having trouble keeping up. This is truly shaping up to be a break-out year for us,” explains Silvercar CEO, Luke Schneider. “To be selected as a stand-out company amongst 275 other exciting companies is an incredible achievement. I’m proud of everyone at Silvercar and incredibly thankful for all of their hard work. It’s our amazing team that really enables us to stand out above the pack.”

Recognition as an A-List Company is intended to increase the visibility of Austin’s most fundable, scalable and innovative regional startups, and drive increased venture capital funding to Central Texas. Since the inception of the annual A-List awards, there has been a combined $ 358,670,000 in investment for all A-List honorees.

Cruise Dreams Announces an Anthem of the Seas Sampler Sail Away Cruise

Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) May 12, 2015

Cruise Dreams is pleased to present a “Sampler” cruise aboard what is Royal Caribbean Cruise Line’s newest ship Anthem of the Seas. A limited amount of passengers will be able to join this special group and experience a Cruise to Nowhere to truly experience everything this phenomenal new ship will have to offer.

“I specifically chose a Cruise to Nowhere for one of our escorted Sail Away with Cruise Dreams adventures,” explained Kim Gibbons, President and Founder of Cruise Dreams, “because I wanted people to really see what this ship has to offer. Ports aren’t necessary when you see everything you can do on this ship!

Many activities have never been available aboard a ship so prepare to be amazed! For example, Ripcord by Ifly is the first-ever skydiving simulator aboard a cruise ship. Entertainment is equally innovative with 270 – an entertainment venue that changes seamlessly from ocean view to anywhere in the world or places never before imagined through high tech gadgetry, robotics and brilliant artistry. Queen fans (and we mean the musical group, not the English monarch) will rock out to a score of killer Queen tunes in the musical We Will Rock You.

Dining deserves a brochure all its own, with Dynamic Dining featuring an ever changing array of cuisines, venues, times, and more. Celebrity Chefs include Jamie Oliver with rustic homemade Italian favorites, James Beard Award Winner Michael Schwartz provides Pub delights with his own craft brew, and Devin Alexander delights the taste buds without offending the waistline in the Solarium with Devinly Decadence. All in all, 18 different restaurant concepts allow you to choose the traditional, the exotic, the innovative, the decadent and everything that might fall in between.

Wait, there’s more. How about a jewel shaped capsule that gently ascends over 300 feet above sea level for 360 degree views? Or SeaPlex, the largest indoor active space at sea with bumper cars, a circus school with trapeze lessons, roller skating and more? Or virtual balconies that make an inside stateroom indistinguishable from a balcony outside – except for the smell of salty ocean air.

Don’t forget 18 decks, a Bionic Bar powered by Makr Shakr, Flowrider Surf simulator, 4 pools, and a high tech savvy travelers dream of RFID luggage tags, WOW band wristbands that serve as navigation devices, credit cards, room keys and more. Robot take center stage in surprise performances via six Roboscreens that soar and twist.

Cruise Dreams is offering a 2 night pre-package in New York to make this a 5 night getaway…or should we say Sail Away? The pre-package begins March 2, 2016 and the Anthem cruise begins on March 4 for 3 nights, roundtrip from Cape Liberty, New Jersey.

This Anthem Sample Cruise to Nowhere with New York pre-package is almost sold out, mainly to lovers of new ships and unusual experiences. Sail Aways with Cruise Dreams normally operate at full capacity with many repeat passengers who enjoy the experience of traveling with Gibbons who personally escorts each Sail Away. She’s known for surprise shipboard or offshore events, unique, memorable and included as part of the complimentary amenities of a Sailaway.

Cruise Dreams, a niche travel company, specializes in individual and group travel or cruises plus corporate incentive travel at sea or on land. Whether it is a cruise for two or two hundred, a full ship or partial ship charter or a stay at a5-star all-inclusive luxury property world-wide, Cruise Dreams is known for expertise, negotiating savvy, destination knowledge and exemplary customer service.
