Overview

This text provides a comprehensive overview on how modern cruise ships are run, covering the most important topics of today's shipboard operation involving Deck, Engine and Hotel divisions, with a focus on the recent innovations in the Culinary Arts, Entertainment productions, Spa and Beauty facilities and a specific reference on how to maximize "onboard revenues" such as Casino, Bar, Duty-Free Shops, Shore Tours, Photo Gallery, and onboard Art Auctions. A special chapter is dedicated to the procedures to prevent virus outbreaks including Norovirus and Coronavirus.

World Class Shipboard Hospitality is addressed to all those who want to get an unbiased understanding of today's cruise industry such as worldwide media professionals, tourism and hospitality college teachers, cruise industry administrators, product and service suppliers, crew manning agencies and business executives. It can also be a guide for marine, tourism, and hospitality students to learn from a reliable source, and a tool to encourage candidates interested in a career in the industry, as well as to assist existing cruise employees to be eligible for a promotion.

Today there are several books about cruising and cruise ships with description and evaluation of ships, cruise mystery, fiction stories, and personal memories; however, World Class Shipboard Hospitality has the advantage to describe the cruise business operation with first-hand knowledge from an inside point of view and with a richness of professional information, that makes it unique in its genre.

About the Author

Paolo Benassi began his shipboard hospitality career in Italy at the age of 21 and worked his way up to hotel director. Later he joined Costa Cruises as Vice President of Hotel Operations and was sent to Florida to oversee the launching of the "Costa Riviera" and the "Cruising Italian Style" marketing concept in the U.S. market. Benassi decided to remain in Florida with his wife and two children when Costa was purchased by Carnival Cruises and moved its operation division back to Genoa. He is now with the Maritime Holdings Group where he managed, among other cruise ships, the hospitality services of two fascinating sea-going programs "The Scholar Ship" and "The Peace Boat" and created a Shipboard Management Hospitality Training Program certified by the University of California, Riverside, while serving as an adjunct professor in "Food Management" at Johnson & Wales South Florida campus and "Hospitality & Tourism" at Florida Atlantic University.
