FOURTH INVESTOR

AmaWaterways has announced that it has closed on an investment from travel and hospitality investor group Certares LP.  Certares joins the Schreiner/Karst, Murphy and McGeary families as the company’s fourth investor, all of whom remain committed to supporting AmaWaterways long-term growth and innovation in the river cruising industry.  Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

LOWER EXPECTATIONS

Norwegian Cruise Line Holding’s president and CEO Frank Del Rio said this year’s ‘wave season’ was a good one.  He did say however that the China market is not necessarily going to meet expectations.  The Chinese government asked travel companies to halt services to South Korea in response to Seoul’s deployment of a US missile defence system.  Most cruise lines have had to replace Busan and Jeju with ports in Japan.

South Korea is typically a draw for Chinese cruisers.
