"'Further Momentum’ perfectly encapsulates both Seatrade Cruise Global and the cruise industry. Throughout adversity, both have proven to be resilient and able not only to overcome difficult times but also to adapt and improve. We look forward to optimizing the event’s opportunities with our destination and Member Line partners to embrace this theme and continue to build back better together."
