Day 3 

Yesterday really felt like a journey of a thousand miles could be taken in a matter of minutes. Over 130 countries were represented on our show floor, including exhibitors from all sectors of the cruise industry. Organizational teams could be seen throughout the show solidifying the connections that will help them plot the course for the future of cruising. Participants also took advantage of virtual reality tours with CLIA so they could see onboard sustainability initiatives. And the Promenade delivered the best of hospitality at sea, complete with engaging demonstrations and taste tests of delicious cocktails. There were also a number of big reveals throughout the day, including Virgin Voyages full model of their first ship, Scarlett Lady, at the Fincatieri booth, Silversea’s Silver Origin, Seabourn’s expedition ship interiors and—a carryover from yesterday—passengers aboard the Carnival Mardi Gras will be able to play Family Fued on board. Add in musical performances, happy hours, and loads of engaging sessions, and it was a phenomenal day here in Miami Beach.

Day 4 

It’s hard to believe that Seatrade Cruise Global 2019 has come to an end. But what a week it’s been! Our return to Miami Beach was without a doubt our biggest, most impactful event yet. A record number of participants engaged in over 95 hours of dedicated networking opportunities and a revamped conference program that spanned 50+ hours—both record amounts. There were also so many immersive activations, events and happy hours—so much excitement—that it often felt as we were celebrating at sea. So much was accomplished in such a short time. From the State of the Global Cruise Industry Keynote to our largest ever exhibitor show floor, to live demos on the Promenade, dual theaters, and indispensable insights shared throughout, we’re confident that the outcomes from this year’s event will shape the cruise industry for years to come. We’re so thankful to everyone who participated. And we can’t wait for 2020 and another opportunity to show the world why #WeAreCruise.
