Scenic Group appoints new vice-president of cruise operations

The Scenic Group – incorporating Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours and Emerald Cruises – has appointed Mark Robinson as vice-president of cruise operations.

Robinson has more than 35 years of industry experience. His most recent role was chief commercial and operations officer with Cruise Saudi, where he helped to build global interest in the region as a new cruise destination.

Previously, Robinson spent three years as the chief commercial/head of business development for Global Port Holdings.

In his new role,  Robinson will oversee the day-to-day operations of Scenic’s river and ocean ships, and direct the transitioning of the company’s new builds into operation.

He will report to Scenic Group chief operating officer Rob Voss.

Voss commented: “As we continue to grow, we are keen to reinforce a strong and robust executive leadership team for cruise operations that can assist in the operational integrity of all our many programmes as well as support our strong guest-focused culture, both on board the vessels and ashore.

“We look forward to Mark adding his extensive knowledge to our team and contributing to our never-ending focus on delivering the highest standards of luxury experiences and guest services across our fleets worldwide.”

Robinson added: “I am thrilled to be joining the Scenic Group during this exciting period of growth and am looking forward to working closely with our award-winning teams on board our vessels and ashore as we offer our guests a first-class luxury experience for which the Scenic Group is renowned.”

In early February, Scenic Eclipse completed the first submarine dive in South Georgian waters in 40 years.

The ship’s on-board submarine, Scenic Neptune, took guests on an underwater exploration in Stromness, South Georgia, as part of a 21-day Antarctica & South Georgia voyage.
