Skift Take

The cruise industry's dominant message for 2016 and the next decade: Only the long view will win.


Editor’s Note: This is the first in a series of video interviews from the Skift Take Studio, presented by Mastercard, that were filmed at this year’s Skift Global Forum.

During the 2016 Skift Global Forum, we had the pleasure of speaking with a host of the travel industry’s top leaders from across every sector.

And after first speaking to them on stage in front of the 1,000+ audience, we took another few minutes with them to ask follow up questions and get more insight in our backstage Skift Take Studio.

Carnival Corp. CEO Arnold Donald, who kicked off the conference with a discussion with Skift Editor-in-Chief Jason Clampet, sat down solo in the studio to share additional thoughts about the state of cruising, the opportunities for growth, misperceptions about China, and the large addressable markets that are ripe for new cruising.
