Five Faves: Women Cruise-Line Presidents

For International Women’s Day, We’re Celebrating 5 Women Cruise Line Presidents!

Today is International Women’s Day — a day to “celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women.” So what better time to applaud five rockin’ women who are at the helm of your favorite major cruise lines. And let us point out that there are plenty more women presidents who are leading numerous small ship and river cruise lines, not to mention other top industry executives who are helping to form the cruise world as we know it. So we say thank you — for the experiences, the enthusiasm, and the inspiration — to these five leading ladies.
