In remarks he made to Seatrade Insider earlier this month, Bob Dickinson, former president and chief executive of Carnival Cruise Lines, who has returned to Carnival Corp & plc as a consultant, suggested that Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) should be getting back to its old role of marketing the cruise industry. CLIA president Christine Duffy acknowledged as much in a speech she delivered last week at the CLIA Cruise360 conference in Vancouver, confirming CLIA’s continued commitment to travel agents. This was done to counter talk that it had changed from being a group focused on agents to a global lobbying organisation. In February, Norwegian Cruise Line and Facebook both listed on the Nasdaq, at similar opening prices of around $28. We look at what has happened since. And finally, we have a look at UK cruise operators and the law.
