Cruise & Ferry Itinerary Planning 2019



International Cruise and Ferry Review Spring 2016

Executive Editor: Jon Ingleton
Editor: Rebecca Gibson

The 2019 issue of Cruise & Ferry Itinerary Planning opens with a keynote from Ugo Savino who discusses Carnival Cruise Line’s approach to finding the perfect ports and creating itineraries that excite guests. This is followed by a cover story exploring how history, natural beauty and great infrastructure make England’s Port of Dover an amazing cruise destination.

We also have a roundtable, where we ask senior executives from Costa Cruises, Marella Cruises and V. Ships Leisure to suggest solutions for resolving common itinerary planning challenges. Features focus on how Carnival Australia and Pullmantur Cruises are exceeding guest expectations, as well as the strategies cruise lines and ports are using to deliver a better shore experience.

Elsewhere, cruise executives share their perspectives on what key factors they consider when designing itineraries, while cruise associations give us the latest updates from their members and outline their key priorities for the future. Other highlights include interviews, reports and viewpoints from ports and destinations around the world, as well as a marketwatch section, which includes exclusive insights from Crystal Cruises’ Claudius Docekal and cruise consultant David Selby.

There’s plenty more too – enjoy the issue!
