Message from Adam Goldstein, RCI President and CEO
Dear Travel Partner,
All of us at Royal Caribbean International continue to extend our heartfelt sympathies to those affected by Carnival Corporation’s recent tragic incident on the Costa Concordia. As a valued travel agent partner we know you may have some questions as the situation continues to unfold.
At Royal Caribbean International, the safety and security of our guests – your clients – and crew is our highest priority. It is fundamental to our operations. Our maritime safety record throughout our 42-year history illustrates our commitment to the safety of the millions of guests and crew that sail on our ships. The measures we take in the interest of safety are many, often exceeding the regulatory requirements – these are all part of our ongoing commitment to innovation and continuous improvement in every aspect of our business.
To address some of your questions and concerns, here is a video that will provide an overview of safety onboard our ships; the training of our crew, officers and captains; and the many regulations that govern our practices. Click here to watch.
As a travel professional, we know your clients, family and friends may be asking your advice and thoughts and as an industry expert. We hope that you’ll share this video along with your personal Royal Caribbean experiences with them, and reinforce that cruising continues to maintain the best safety record of any industry in travel.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to another successful year in selling cruises as the best vacation value.
President and CEO
