Itinerary Planning 2020

Executive Editor: Jon Ingleton
Editor: Rebecca Gibson

The 2020 issue of Cruise & Ferry Itinerary Planning opens with a keynote with Josh Leibowitz who discusses how Seabourn is making its mark at the luxury end of the expedition sector and taking guests to extraordinary places.

We also have a cover story where Unesco’s Ernesto Ottone R. discusses how remarkable historical, cultural and natural sights around the world will help to drive demand for cruising once again. Meanwhile, our feature and roundtable focus on how operators like Crystal Cruises, Marella Cruises, Mystic Cruises, P&O Cruises Australia and Royal Caribbean Group are creating inspiring itineraries to entice travellers back to the seas in the wake of the pandemic.

Elsewhere, cruise executives reveal what key factors they consider when designing itineraries in our Planner Perspectives section, while various cruise associations share the latest updates from their members and outline their key priorities for the future in our Association Highlights articles. Other highlights include reports and viewpoints from ports and destinations around the world, as well as a Marketwatch section featuring an exclusive interview with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection’s Douglas Prothero.

There’s plenty more too – enjoy the issue!
