adam_goldstein_CliaThe Board of Directors of Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) has appointed Adam Goldstein as Chairman as of 1 January 2015. In a normal rotation of duties, Mr. Goldstein, President and COO of Royal Caribbean Cruises, will take over from Howard Frank, Chairman of Costa Crociere, who has served as CLIA Chair since 2010.

“I’m honored to take on this new role, and I look forward to continuing Howard’s vision of a unified industry working together to ensure the safety and well-being of our passengers and crew, while encouraging a larger share of leisure travelers to consider the exceptional vacation experience that taking a cruise offers,” Mr. Goldstein said.

Under the chairmanship of Mr. Frank, CLIA implemented the association’s new global structure under a unified mission of “One Industry, One Voice”. The association also expanded its offerings and value to travel agent Members, and to destinations, ports, and industry suppliers under its Executive Partner membership program.

The past decade has seen a 77 percent increase in the popularity of cruising, to a record 21.3 passengers worldwide in 2013. On a global basis, the cruise industry was responsible last year for $117 billion in total spending that supported more than 891,000 jobs paying over $38 billion in wages.
