Cox and Com­pany at­tend Cruise Sum­mit

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The 2015 FCCA PA­MAC Cruise Sum­mit took place from 24-26 June at the Gran Ven­tana Ho­tel in Playa Do­rada, Puerto Plata. More than 100 plat­inum mem­bers of the Florida-Caribbean Cruise As­so­ci­a­tion (FCCA) and 20 se­nior-level cruise ex­ec­u­tives at­tended the three­day con­fer­ence. Meet­ings and func­tions de­signed to foster plat­inum mem­bers’ de­vel­op­ment of work­ing re­la­tion­ships, ex­change of ideas and pro­mo­tion of prod­ucts and des­ti­na­tions to cruise ex­ec­u­tives were held. The cruise ex­ec­u­tives are the ones who de­cide where ships call, what sells on-board and how to in­vest in in­fra­struc­ture.

In at­ten­dance from St. Lu­cia were Cox and Com­pany Lim­ited’s Di­rec­tors, Cather­ine Cooper and Siob­han Beaubrun. Dis­cus­sions were held with Car­los Tor­res de Navarra, Vice Pres­i­dent, Com­mer­cial Port Oper­a­tions Car­ni­val Cruise Lines. He in­di­cated that Car­ni­val Cruise Lines, which has a ves­sel call­ing year round in Saint Lu­cia, is very com­mit­ted to the sus­tain­abil­ity of the Tourism Sec­tor here. To this end, the cruise line is open to dis­cussing ideas for prod­ucts that can im­prove upon the guest ex­pe­ri­ence: shore ex­cur­sion re­lated or oth­er­wise.
