Where Do the Ships Go?

With over 100 new ocean going cruise ships on order, I’ve heard it said that since the world is over 70% ocean, there’s plenty of space. Of course it’s true, cruise ships need water, but equally as important, they need ports and destinations. No matter how exciting each new ship is, the question everyone asks before booking is, “where does it go?”

Maximizing The ‘Before You Board’ Experience

The Power of a Travel Communications Platform
Sale and sail—the two most celebrated moments in the cruise industry’s customer journey. But what is a journey with a beginning, end, and a so-so middle? What about the customer experience between booking and embarkation?
Armed with a new communications solution, innovative cruise companies are now learning that the customer journey doesn’t have to ebb and flow. Rather, it can gain momentum over time, shattering the long-held standard that the transactional “in between” period is less valuable than its counterparts.

Changing the Industry, One Woman at a Time.

One thing about the cruise industry that goes without saying: it’s one of the most forward thinking and rapidly evolving industries in the world. Not only is customer experience at the forefront of innovation, but also the professional experience – from building a more inclusive work environment to creating a positive impact on the world through sustainability.

New Port? No Problem. (…If you follow these keys to success)

The cruise landscape is always changing. With new competition, traveler trends, and even regulations, comes the growth of new ports. But the charge to engage these new ports as opposed to those tried and true isn’t without its challenges. So, how do companies ensure that everyone involved comes away happy for years to come?

Here, Liz Gammon, general manager at TVG Travel in Iceland dishes on her keys to new port success, and gives us a preview of the program, New Ports and Destinations: Get Out There; Get Noticed; but Above All, GET READY!

Reducing energy consumption: what’s next?

Currently, reducing the energy consumption on board passenger vessels is a hot topic. It is known that HVAC is one of the largest energy guzzlers on board of these type of ships. And with a growing focus on the environment and operational costs, it is an exciting time to work in the marine HVAC business. In lowering the energy on board via HVAC we are already quite far and can promise a big reduction. For more information about this issue, I would like to invite you to our Seatrade stand 1594. In this blog I will try not to talk about Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning, neural nets and other modern concepts. Which savings topics will come up next?
