Ambassador Cruise Line Karen Cameron

Ambassador Cruise Line has promoted Karen Cameron to deputy head of trade as part of plans to bolster its ties with UK agents

Cameron joined the business as divisional sales manager – north in February 2023 with oversight of trade business in the north of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

She will start her new role on 1 July and will be tasked with leveraging existing commercial relationships to maximise sales opportunities.

Reporting into Nicola Harper, head of distribution for Ambassador Cruise Line, the role will see Cameron manage various trade members and key partnerships with the emphasis on revenue generation and relationship building.

She has worked in the travel industry for almost 30 years, beginning her career as a YTS trainee and progressing to management roles with Stewart Travel, Barrhead and Thomas Cook.

At Carnival UK, Cameron worked across P&O Cruises, Cunard and Princess Cruises as regional manager covering Scotland, the north and Northern Ireland and, prior to joining Ambassador in February 2023, she was regional head of experience at Haven.

“Since joining the Ambassador family in early 2023, Karen has done a truly amazing job, going above and beyond the call of duty in creating and fostering partnerships with our agent partners. She is absolutely ready to take on this key role in the business,” Harper said.

“I look forward to working with Karen as we continue to develop a brand and a business that stands head and shoulders above our nearest competitors in the UK cruise market.”

The line will now search for Cameron’s replacement, who will be tasked with ensuring Ambassador continues to meet the needs of its trade partners in the north of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
