Royal Caribbean International’s Europe chief Ben Bouldin has said he is “extremely confident” the line’s 2022 programme will operate uninterrupted.
Bouldin, Royal’s vice-president EMEA, said his team were “squarely focused on making sure 2022 is nailed perfectly”, while also being optimistic around the company’s 2021 itineraries.
“I’m very hopeful we can keep a good chunk and integrity of our plan for ’21,” he told TTG.
"We’re going to have to be patient and nimble and just see how things play out and we’ll continue to do everything we can to keep 2021 intact. That’s really the confidence and the guidance I’ve given the team, we can only do so much [for 2021] but let’s keep chipping away.”
He was speaking as Royal revealed its 2022 European deployment, which features seven ships in Europe with “really significant hardware” in the region.
