International Cruise and Ferry Review Autumn 2016

Executive Editor: Jon Ingleton
Editor: Rebecca Gibson
Publisher: Nolan Andrews

International Cruise & Ferry Review’s Autumn/Winter 2016 issue features a keynote interview with Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd’s chairman and CEO Richard Fain, where he reflects on the company’s global expansion and continuous fleet improvement.

We also speak to other key cruise industry figures, such as Alan Buckelew at Carnival Corporation & plc, Andy Stuart at Norwegian Cruise Line and Dream Cruises’ Thatcher Brown. Our Ferry Business section features comment from Chet Pastrana at Archipelago Philippines Ferries, Paul Luxon at Condor Ferries, Marine Atlantic's Paul Griffin, Interferry's Darrell Bryan and many more.

This issue also explores how industry associations and suppliers are improving safety at sea, the record cruise and ferry order books, recent refits and how ports are helping cruise ships in their sustainability endeavours. Our new contributor, ferry industry stalwart Michael Grey, also considers the factors behind the success of ferry routes.

Other highlights include our cover story, where we find out how Jamaica has upgraded Montego Bay and Ocho Rios to keep pace with growing cruise demand and new ship requirements.
