When the new Carnival Horizon enters service next spring, she will be doing a relatively short season in the Mediterranean, Fred Stein, senior director of revenue planning and fleet development, told Cruise Industry News. She will sail four roundtrip cruises from Barcelona before sailing trans-Atlantic to New York, becoming Carnival’s seasonal ship in New York for the summer of 2018.
“We are very much focused on giving people memorable experiences,” said Roberto Martinoli, CEO at Silversea Cruises, being interviewed one-on-one by Cruise Industry News. “Also one of the things we do best is the way our crew approaches our guests. It is a very personable service and a smaller, more intimate environment. We have a special culture onboard and there is something magical in how the crew interacts with our guests.
“We continue to grow, so I think the opportunities to work at Royal Caribbean are amazing. We continue to promote people at a record pace, and we continue to invest in and develop people from all around the world,” Paul T. Parker, senior vice president and chief human resources officer for Royal Caribbean Cruises, told Cruise Industry News.
