Larry Pimentel, president & CEO of the cruise line, said: “Our 2019 itineraries span the world with new ports and destinations such as Alaska and go deeper than ever before into local cultures with one-of-a-kind experiences that you can’t find through local tour services. We are confident that our growing number of first-time, millennial and baby boomer cruisers along with repeat customers will find the new itineraries to offer the type of personalised and unique experiences they seek. With the new itineraries, we are continuing to build upon our Stay Longer, Experience More brand positioning, with more onshore opportunities that allow guests to connect with locals for enriching travel moments, on both land and at sea.”
