Executive view: Natalya Leahy, president of Seabourn Cruises
I think everyone knows this has been a challenging year as regards the economy, right? And obviously there are some geopolitical challenges that impact the travel industry specifically.
Nonetheless, in most markets, we’ve seen increasing numbers of travelers, and that continues to be the trend.
We are in the ultraluxury category, and affluent travelers have always stayed significantly more resilient to the ups and downs of economic challenges. Seabourn is seeing record bookings for 2024, so we are incredibly pleased in terms of pacing and demand.
