Royal Caribbean's international boss announces departure

Royal Caribbean International’s senior vice president of international, Dominic Paul, is leaving the business.

Paul will be replaced by Gavin Smith, previously regional vice president of Asia Pacific, who has been with the business for six years.

The cruise line said Paul had accepted a job as chief executive of a UK-based, non-travel-related business. He will leave on May 1 when Smith takes up his new position.

Smith will be responsible for international sales, marketing and commercial operations for Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Club Cruises.

He will lead the business activities in the UK, Europe, the Middle East, Australia, Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.

Royal Caribbean’s president, Michael Bayley, said: “We are extremely appreciative of Dominic’s hard work growing our brands’ presence in the UK and European market for four years, and, during the past two years, growing our International business all over the world. We all wish Dominic much luck in his next adventure.”

In 2016, Royal Caribbean will source 1.5 million guests from these markets.
