Introduction by Adam:
Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, our Executive Vice President of Operations, is one of the first people I met when starting my career at Royal Caribbean. In an effort to learn about the cruise business I joined Lisa in Boston for a couple of days where we visited several travel agencies, one of which was located in the back of a shoe store. But that is a story for another day. I asked Lisa to introduce herself to our readers, as she will frequently blog in this space, especially as we get closer to sharing details about Project Sunshine.
Hello, everyone. I am excited to introduce myself to all of you in my first blog!
I was recently promoted to the role of Executive Vice President of Operations for Royal Caribbean International where I lead Marine, Land, and Hotel Operations which includes Entertainment and Activities, and Food and Beverage, and other fun areas like casino, shops, spa, and shore excursions.
I’ve worked for Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. for over 27 rewarding years and had the pleasure of serving in various roles with both Celebrity Cruises and Royal Caribbean International. I am from Gloucester, Massachusetts and started working at Royal Caribbean in 1985, as the District Sales Manager for Canada and New England after graduating from Bentley College and a short career in the hotel industry. Over the years both Royal Caribbean and the cruise industry have dramatically grown and I have grown as well, taking on many roles in Sales, Marketing, and Operations. Watching our industry and our company grow has been a thrilling experience.
