In the past, commanding a cruise ship has been a male role – but times are changing. Grace Allen discusses the rise of female cruise captains with Sea Cloud's Captain Kathryn Whittaker, Captain Kate McCue of Celebrity and Despina Panayiotou Theodosiou, president of the Women's International Shipping and Trading Association.
Also in this issue, cruise ships are navigating more far-flung waters than ever before, requiring operators to have the correct safeguards in place to protect the lives of their passengers. Ross Davies meets Conrad Combrink, senior vice-president of strategic development for expeditions and experiences at Silversea Cruises; Markus Aarnio, chairman of Foreship; and Jeff Morgan, Aviem CEO, to find out what measures need to be taken.
Plus, Despite a bulging order book, it's been a bittersweet summer for Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri, as its influential former CEO, Corrado Antonini, died in July. Ross Davies takes a look at his legacy as the company looks to retain its market dominance. And: Nearly three decades after it first opened, Royal Caribbean's CocoCay is getting a makeover. The private resort promises passengers a wealth of new activities and ways to relax. But the project is not without controversy.
