Listen to “Chief Travel Leader” Kelly Craighead – 13 Jan 2024

 
Kelly Craighead, Chief Executive Officer
Cruise Lines International Association
www.Cruising.org

We consistently hear from our many show fans all sorts of questions and commentary with regards to the Cruise Sector of Travel, and it may well bring out the most passionate travelers out there!  Cruise offers some of the best value in travel in our opinion, and it enables travelers of all types something to fit their interests, preferences and budget.

We enjoy connecting with Kelly Craighead, the CEO of the Cruise Lines International Association, or CLIA, as through her position she’s engaged with all brands and facets of the Cruise Sector of Travel.

As “Wave Season” is now underway, to kick-off our 2024 broadcast year, we invited Kelly back for our 13 January 2024 live broadcast of America’s #1 Travel Radio Show, to discuss current happenings in the Cruise Sector of Travel and others that will unfold as the year progresses.  We also discussed the growth of expedition and small ship cruising, changes the industry has made to be better partners with destinations they visit and more.  If you missed the live broadcast or simply want to hear this “Chief Travel Leader” conversation with Kelly again, that was transmitted via satellite and broadcast via the now 570+ weekly radio stations airing RMWorldTravel with Robert & Mary Carey and Rudy Maxa across the USA, just click on this play arrow beneath this text …

Regular listeners know we’ve been extremely critical of the CDC and their often inexplicable stances during the pandemic with regards to the Cruise Industry.  That’s why we’ve made it a point to have so many top voices from the industry join us live on-air to keep the pressure on — and to also do our part to clear through all the clutter and misinformation the national media has created.

During our live broadcast of America’s #1 Travel Radio Show on 12 February 2022, we invited CLIA CEO Kelly Craighead back to our national airwaves to give a real-time report on current operations of the cruise lines, share thoughts on the CDC, look forward and more.  To hear the full interview that aired across the USA on our now 480+ weekly affiliates that air RMWorldTravel with Robert & Mary Carey and Rudy Maxa, simply click on the play arrow immediately following this text…

We say it’s time to stop the insanity, so join us and let’s together help #FreeTheCruiseShips!

The CDC’s ongoing decisions are causing tremendous mid and long term damage to such a vitally important sector of the travel world — Cruising…

We all respect the need and importance for safe travel during the Coronavirus pandemic, but as we’ve been saying on-air now for many months — when theme parks can operate at reduced capacity with virus protocols in place, when U.S. airlines are flying over a million people a day now, when hotels are safely accommodating travelers and restaurants are safely serving patrons, when shopping malls and movie theaters are open, when casinos are back in action with safety protocols in place — and when Florida, Texas, Tennessee, South Carolina and others States are successfully welcoming travelers — Cruise Ships should be allowed to operate!

And that’s why during our live broadcast of America’s #1 Travel Radio Show on 3 April 2021, after yet another CDC decision that we strongly disagree with, we invited CLIA CEO Kelly Craighead abroad to weigh-in on this important matter, discuss current conditions and offer ways that our 1 million+ weekly listeners can help #FreeTheCruiseShips!
