Micky Arison, chairman of Carnival Corporation & plc, has been appointed as chairman of the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association’s (FCCA) Executive Committee.
Reprising his former role, Arison has replaced Kevin Sheehan, who has served as FCCA chairman for the past five years, helping to grow the FCCA Platinum Membership programme and improve relationships with destinations. Sheehan also recently resigned as CEO and president of Norwegian Cruise Lines Holdings.
“I am honoured and excited to again serve as the FCCA Executive Committee chairman,” said Arison. “My past tenure showed the significance of the committee uniting member line presidents, CEOs and/or chairmen to discuss operations within the Caribbean and Latin America, and I look forward to continuing this role, which has become even more crucial as cruise lines continue to expand their capacities and markets.”
In addition to his role as chairman of the Executive Committee, Arison will interact with the FCCA’s members and destination partners during FCCA events.
“Micky’s appointment further paves the path for the Executive Committee’s future,” said Michele Paige, FCCA president. “He served as chairman for ten years and knows the importance of keeping a constant dialogue between the cruise lines and destinations to achieve mutually beneficial arrangements. His wealth of knowledge about the industry and destinations will lead the way to successful operations for both.”
Earlier this year, the FCCA revealed that it had appointed Disney Cruise Line executive Russell Daya as chairman of its Operations Committee.
