What is the most impressive achievement for your company this year?
One of Star Cruises’ key highlights in 2019 is the fact that we are celebrating our 25th Anniversary this year as one of the leading cruise pioneers in Asia.
Star Cruises continues to be at the forefront in developing new markets in the region and also stimulating growth in key contemporary markets, currently from South-east Asia to Taiwan, Hong Kong and China. We are proud that Star Cruises’ commitment in offering best-in-class services and facilities has resulted in the cruise line’s induction into the prestigious Travel Hall of Fame for the 12th year in 2019, in recognition of winning Best Cruise Operator in the Asia-Pacific for 10 consecutive years.
It is often said that an organisation is only as strong as its people. What investments have your company made in talent development this year?
Star Cruises is proud to be an Asian-based company with over 25 years of valuable experience in pioneering the Asian cruise industry, which is built on the rock-solid foundation of our valuable employees from diverse nationalities and backgrounds, each having a significant role in the success and milestones of Star Cruises.
As we move ahead, we will continue to train and develop the next generation of leaders for the cruise industry – both our in-house talents and also new recruits – setting a career growth path for employees to move up the ranks and acquire and apply new skill-sets across the different fields within the company and the group.
What can your trade partners and customers look forward to in doing business with you in 2020?
We have our trade partners to thank for voting and believing in us, and most importantly for their continuous support over the years. We deeply value our trade partners and together, we will continue to innovate and provide exciting and unique cruising experiences and itineraries for the growing cruise segment. We will continue to work closely with our trade partners to provide all the necessary support to promote cruising as a choice vacation with attractive opportunities, including the Fly & Rail cruise, as well as the growing MICE sector.
