Smith, meanwhile, will join the team on 7 May as a sales development and engagement manager, having worked in the travel industry for seven years – five years within retail branches for TUI & Virgin as retail store manager followed by regional maternity leave cover for Royal Caribbean.

His role will see him share key information with front line travel agents and execute training plans in support of the line’s strategic accounts alongside pursuing new business development opportunities.

The appointments come after Princess Cruises’ newest vessel Sun Princess was officially named during an event at the Port of Barcelona by godmother and award-winning actor Hannah Waddingham.
