CARNIVAL Australia CEO Ann Sherry marked the high point of the summer cruise season with a reception onboard Cunard Line flagship Queen Mary 2 in Sydney on Friday night.

Speaking at the combined Tourism and Transport Forum and NSW Business Chamber reception, Ms Sherry said it was an opportunity to “consider what this record cruise season means in terms of cruising’s overall contribution to the tourism sector.”

“It has of course been a spectacularly successful cruise season and the highlights are many and varied. More ships, more brands and more excitement if that were possible,” she said. Ms Sherry said it was important not to differentiate between the relative merits of local and international cruise activity because it was all part of the overall success of cruising.

“There is no need to differentiate because whether it is local ships, seasonally based ships or international ships on world voyages, they are all valuable,” she said. “Such great variety is a key strength of cruising in this market. We are absolutely spoilt for choice. There are so many brands and so many ships and itineraries catering for every market segment.”
