Lately I have been noticing how many people are migrating to Royal Caribbean from Carnival (or should we say Royal Caribbean is 'stealing' from Carnival?)

But the topic is important. Did you see that RCI just got a lady named Roberta Jacoby this week who was the SVP of corporate special projects for Carnival Corp., reporting to then vice chairman and chief operating officer Howard Frank.

Jacoby joined Carnival in 1976 as an air/sea reservations agent; first reporting to Micky Arison. Her former boss at Carnival, Bob Dickinson, noted Jacoby is known in the travel business for her management talent and tough negotiation skills.

One assignment was helping oversee the transition of Seabourn to Holland America Line.

At one point Jacoby served as SVP of hotel operations for Carnival Cruise Lines’ 23-ship fleet, with responsibility for food and beverage, casino, spa, photography, accommodations, entertainment, shore excursions, youth programming, corporate training and crew.

And of course, there is Vicki Freed who was a senior VP and with Carnival for 29 years, and then left to join Royal Caribbean in the same position over sales and marketing.

I do not feel that the "transition" of Seabourn to Holland America was smooth or well-handled. Seabourn is treated as just another line and will lose even more attention when Holland America adds Princess to its family. A luxury line needs luxury-minded leaders, not those used to managing large premium lines.


Vicky Freed moved from Carnival to RCCL years ago, not just recently.

Winner - I agree with you about Seabourn. I also think a lux line needs luxury management.

Have you been on a Seabourn cruise?

I have sailed Seabourn many times, the last being Pride's last crossing before her handover to Windstar; many old friends, both passenger, staff and crew were aboard to sail her one final time.
