CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - One of the world's newest ocean liners is calling in South Carolina.
Oceania Cruise's Marina was launched late last year and makes a call in Charleston on Thursday.
The Marina is sailing up the East Coast to New York before continuing across the Atlantic to Barcelona, Spain.
The 66,000-ton vessel can carry 1,250 guests and has six gourmet restaurants.
The cruise industry means about $37 million to the South Carolina economy each year..
