“Seatrade Cruise Virtual: Tech & Innovation will bring people in the industry together. They’ll be able to share ideas and updates of their own, as well as learning about how cruise is adopting cutting-edge technology to improve experiences for guests and crew.

As he stated in a recent interview with Seatrade, “cruising will not be the same as before, it will be even better!”. For our part, we fully support that view and are doing all we can then to ensure it happens.
