I am heading over to Miami today for SeaTrade, the Cruise Shipping convention, in Miami. This is always a very intense few days of being updated on everything going on in this fascinating industry.
Tomorrow morning the convention kicks off with its annual “State of the Industry” panel, where the presidents of several cruise companies talk about what happened the past year and what they forecast for the upcoming year. I will report back to you what they say.
Then there are a lot of press conferences where we journalists learn even more about what is new in cruising.
It is nice to have a chance to hob-nob with my fellow cruise journalists and to meet officials from so many cruise lines who often become valuable sources for future cruise stories.
The publisher of AllThingsCruise.com, Heidi Allison Shane, will be there with me.
Stay tuned for my SeaTrade reports.
