Published alongside the Autumn/Winter 2018 issue of International Cruise & Ferry Review, this year’s Itinerary Planning Special Report brings together insight from the biggest names across the industry.
The report opens with an insightful cover story with Carnival Corporation’s Giora Israel, where he uncovers the mystery behind creating the perfect cruise itineraries. Meanwhile, our roundtable asks four cruise executives about their favourite destinations and itineraries.
Crystal Cruises’ Anita Hodson also explains why diversity is important in itineraries, Holland America’s Simon Douwes discusses how to balance port visits and sea days, and Costa Cruises’ Federico Bartoli shares the criteria ports must fulfil.
Elsewhere, we report on the key industry challenges and opportunities that were discussed at events hosted by Norway's ports, MedCruise and Cruise Europe. Plus, we have a feature where tourist boards and tour operators outline how their destinations deliver memorable cruise guest experiences, and another showcasing some of the best port service initiatives.
There’s plenty more too – enjoy the issue!
