That’s the spirit
Norwegian Cruise Line’s (NCL) post-pandemic comeback is arguably now complete with the Norwegian Spirit back in service following a major refurbishment. Martin Morris speaks to NCL’s Gary Anslow, senior director of sales, UK&I, to fi nd out what this means for the cruise line.

Coming to America
With 300 years in the business of sailing, MSC Cruises’ passion for the sea is unlike no other. As the third-largest cruise brand in the world, the line has set its sights on the US to expand its presence. Phoebe Galbraith speaks to Rubén Rodríguez, president of MSC Cruises USA, to find out more.

Short-range target
Carbon intensity indicator targets are yet to be implemented, but cruise ships already face a disadvantage. By spending more time at ports and taking shorter voyages, cruises risk a poor score on the CII, which primarily focuses on distance travelled. John Haefl inger, senior vice-president of sustainability and maritime policy at Carnival Corporation, and Linden Coppell, vice-president of sustainability and ESG at MSC Cruises, explain to Jim Banks why the calculation method should be reviewed.

Going it alone
As more single adventurers are seeking out and trying new experiences on their own, cruise ships are increasingly looking for ways to entice the solo traveller on board. Mae Losasso speaks to Gary Anslow, head of UK and Ireland business at Norwegian Cruise Lines, and Peter Deer, managing director at Fred Olsen, to find out what they offer the solo cruiser.

Stability brings success
Recently approved by Lloyds Register, NAPA’s new stability management software for passenger vessels, NAPA Stability, will enable ships to share and view stability data with onshore teams in real time, and help vessels balance ongoing concerns for safety and sustainability. Jim Banks speaks to Esa Henttinen, executive vice-president of NAPA Safety Solutions, to understand the solution’s impact.
