The 2023 issue of Cruise and Ferry Itinerary Planning opens with a keynote interview with Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, who discusses the highlights of the company’s 50 years at sea and the destinations on its horizon. Meanwhile, our cover story sees us explore the Great Lakes St. Lawrence Seaway System to discover why this welcoming region is attracting the attention of the cruise world.

Cruise ports and destinations share their latest initiatives for more sustainable operations in our ‘Sailing towards greener horizons’ feature, and we ask Silversea Cruises, Ponant, and ports and destinations how they’ve rebounded from a challenging few years to welcome guests back with more compelling itineraries than ever before in our ‘Good times ahead’ feature. Also, executives from some of the largest cruise lines discuss the magic of the Caribbean, giving their insights on why the region continues to lead the way as the most popular cruise destination.

Elsewhere, our series of Maiden Season articles previews the itineraries for of some of the most anticipated new cruise ships for Carnival Cruise Line, MSC Cruises, Seabourn, and Viking. Cruise executives reveal the reasons behind their decisions when designing itineraries in our Planner Perspectives, while cruise associations share their priorities and the latest updates from their members in the Association Highlights section. Other highlights include reports and viewpoints from ports and destinations across the world, a Regional Spotlight that focuses on the appeal of cruise destinations in Northern Europe, and the latest news and developments in our Marketwatch section.
