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.
