International Cruise and Ferry Review Spring 2016

Executive Editor: Jon Ingleton
Editor: Michele Witthaus
Publisher: Nolan Andrews

International Cruise & Ferry Review’s Spring/Summer 2016 issue features a keynote interview with Carnival Corporation & plc’s president and CEO Arnold Donald, where he reflects on his company’s growth in China, new ships, sustainability goals and more. We also speak to other key industry figures, such as Gianni Onorato at MSC Cruises, Larry Pimentel at Azamara Club Cruises, Princess Cruises’ Jan Swartz, and Celebrity Cruises’ Lisa Lutoff-Perlo.

This issue also explores how technology is driving innovation in the ferry sector, the changing demands for better at-sea connectivity, the latest interior design and entertainment trends, and much more. We also take a look at how ports and tourist boards are transforming the onshore experience.

Other highlights include our cover story, where we find out more about how the British Virgin Islands expects its new Tortola Pier Park complex to boost cruise visitor numbers.
