Edie_BornsteinCrystal Cruises said its president, Gregg Michel, has resigned and will be replaced by Edie Bornstein, who recently departed Azamara Club Cruises.

The shakeup, effective Oct. 15, also gives Bornstein the title of chief operating officer.

Michel had been president of two-ship Crystal Cruises since 2001. In a statement, Nobuyoshi Kuzuya, chairman and CEO of Crystal, said he greatly appreciated the efforts and accomplishments of Michel over his tenure.

Bornstein resigned abruptly from Azamara last week. She had been senior vice president of sales and marketing for Azamara, also a two-ship line.

Prior to joining Azamara, Bornstein worked for Carnival Cruise Lines and Amadeus.

Azamara is owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. Crystal is owned by Toyko-based Nippon Yusen Kaisha.
