The Spring/Summer 2022 issue of Cruise & Ferry Review begins with an exclusive keynote with Carnival Corporation’s CEO Arnold Donald who explains how the organisation is overcoming adversity to steer its nine cruise brands back to success after a challenging couple of years.

There’s also a cover story with Celebrity Cruises’ Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, who outlines how the brand is coming back together after having dealt with the impact of the pandemic.

Our Cruise Business section opens with a roundtable discussion on the state of the river cruise industry, which features insights from TUI Cruises’ Chris Hackney, APT Luxury River Cruises & Tours’ Paul Melinis, CroisiEurope’s John Fair and A-ROSA’s Lucia Rowe. Other notable names in this section include P&O Cruises’ Paul Ludlow, Swan Hellenic’s Andrea Zito, American Cruise Lines’ Charles B. Robertson, SunStone Ships’ Niels-Erik Lund, Royal Caribbean International’s Ben Bouldin, Viking Cruises’ Wendy Atkin-Smith and Cruise Lines Industry Association’s Kelly Craighead.

Published in association with Interferry, our Ferry Business section opens with a commentary by Mike Corrigan, who calls for investment in shoreside electricity supply for the ferry industry. The roundtable expands on the theme of sustainability by uncovering how high-speed ferry operators Red Funnel, Uber Boat by Thames Clippers, Fire Island Ferries and San Juan Clippers plan to reduce emissions and adapt to using new fuels. In addition, Baleària’s Adolfo Utor discusses the state of the Spanish ferry market, BC Ferries’ Corrine Storey talks about operating in a safe and environmentally friendly way, and Irish Ferries’ Andrew Sheen outlines post-pandemic challenges. Strategic Partnerships’ Mary Scott Nabers highlights how federal funding is helping to drive ferry improvements across the USA, while ferry expert Michael Grey comments on the benefits of ferry travel in a post-pandemic world.

Elsewhere in the magazine are features and reports on newbuild orders, refit projects, crew recruitment, onboard entertainment, and the return of cruise ships to ports and destinations worldwide. We also have a new Featured Partners directory in our Marine Operations section, which profiles businesses that provide services to support the operational needs of cruise and ferry brands.

Plus, we also outline some of the latest updates from across the passenger shipping industry in our Marketwatch section and we share updates and perspectives from a range of key industry stakeholders. We also highlight how industry stakeholders are working together to improve the sustainability profile of passenger ships in our annual Green List.

There’s plenty more too – enjoy the issue!
