…. Bayley said that one the first calls he made after being appointed was to Dondra Ritzenthaler, Celebrity’s senior vice president of sales, who immediately set up meetings for him with Celebrity’s top travel agents.

“One of my key missions is quickly developing relationships with our trade and travel partners, and making sure I understand how they view us,” he said. “I’m particularly interested in getting feedback on the Celebrity brand and how they see it and how we can improve it, and what we can do and how we can prioritize. I’m very interested in having that discussion and listening to our partners.”
