Paul Gauguin Cruises, operator of the highest rated and longest continually-sailing luxury cruise ship in the South Pacific, the m/s Paul Gauguin, proudly appoints Diane Moore to its management team as Executive Vice President at the company’s Bellevue office.
A seasoned veteran of the cruise industry, Moore joins Paul Gauguin Cruises with 36 years of cruise experience. Moore began her career as a member of Royal Cruise Line, then run by her father, Richard Reynes. Here Moore served as Senior Vice President of Passenger Services, until she left the company in 1996 to join forces with Holland America Line as Vice President of Passenger Programs. During her time with Holland America Line, Moore immersed herself in client and passenger relations, assisting with reservations, air and sea bookings, inventory, hotel programs, and documentation. She spent four years handling the guest services for Holland America Line, before joining Crystal Cruises in Los Angeles as Senior Vice President of Guest Services. She shared her expertise with Crystal Cruises for four years before joining Virtuoso® as Executive Vice President of Supplier Relations, where she was in charge of negotiating agreements with all the suppliers in the network.
In 2005, Moore joined Windstar Cruises as Vice President of Sales & Marketing, and continued to further her experience in the cruise industry for the past five years as President of the cruise company. Joining Paul Gauguin Cruises is a natural shift for Moore, as she is able to expand upon her extensive knowledge and experience of the cruise industry and help lead the company in its second year under the Pacific Beachcomber umbrella.
“We are delighted to welcome Diane Moore to this leadership position on the Paul Gauguin team. She brings a wealth of experience and joins the group of highly skilled and energetic individuals who comprise Paul Gauguin Cruises,” comments Richard Bailey, President of Pacific Beachcomber, S.C.
Moore was born in Chicago, Illinois, and received her Bachelor Degree in Psychology from Purdue University.
