Cruise Trade News July-Aug 2021

We’re well into the heart of summer and with that comes sunshine (although as I write this the fickle British weather means rain is lashing down against my window).

Nevertheless, the brighter days have brightened my mood: there’s something very therapeutic about a walk in the summer air. I’m also feeling increasingly buoyant due to the re-emergence of cruise, as more ships take to the water.

There’s yet more reason to celebrate with this latest issue of Cruise Trade News, as we’ve joined forces with Celebrity Cruises to create a special prize giveaway, designed to reward your hard work and perseverance in the face of adversity during recent months.

This is a digital and print campaign – as you can see from the front cover of this issue – and there are some great prizes to be won, such as Celebrity stationery gift packs, culinary starter packs, and four very appealing Taste of Luxury cruise prizes to experience the freshly revolutionised Celebrity Silhouette. See The Briefing section for more information on how to play.

Looking at the sector as a whole, nothing can take away from the joy felt as more ships return to service, but how can the industry come good on its promise to improve environmental performance?

Industry execs know that those who sit on the sidelines and carry on with the old normal will soon be left behind – technologically and commercially – by those who bite the bullet and invest in developing cleaner operations. We analyse what is happening across the sector in this issue’s CTN Investigates.

Elsewhere, AmaWaterways and Uniworld discuss their respective river cruise itineraries and we report back from our time on a domestic cruise on MSC Virtuosa at the end of May – a joyous occasion for many reasons.

We also go inside Tradewind Voyages’ Golden Horizon, a near-replica of the 1913-built ocean vessel France II.

Enjoy – and until next time.
