Do you remember last year, on the 8th March 2020 when Celebrity Cruises set sail with the first ever all female bridge and onboard leadership team and made history?
Tomorrow, on International Woman’s Day 2021, this fabulous team of powerful, successful women are returning.
Celebrity cruises state ‘A year on from their glass ceiling shattering achievement they are reuniting to reflect on the historic sailing, discuss the challenging year that followed and to share their stories of joy and heartbreak and why it’s more important than ever to #choosetochallenge .’
Given current coronavirus restrictions the team will gather virtually, some joining from their homes. Others joining from onboard Celebrity Edge, in the Bahamas.
“The following powerful voices will be contributing to the unique , industry leading conversation including Captain Kate McCue, the first American female Cruise Ship Captain. Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, the first female President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises and Chief Officer Rachel Arnold from Bristol, UK.”
They will also be joined by 2nd Officer Elizabeth Marami from Kenya, Chief Security Officer Mor ‘Mia’ Segev from Israel, Hotel Director Niina Huataniemi, Assistant Hotel Director Milana Dortangs, Guest Relations Director Julie Sherrington and Cruise Director Sue Denning.
President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said “ Making History with these women was quite extraordinary for our industry and an honour for me. It was a dream come true for us all”
“Our mantra has been to use this time away from the water to come back stronger than ever and reuniting these incredible trailblazers is a sign of that. Together we will continue to sail beyond conventional thinking and wisdom into a new world of opportunity.”
