Ama said the most recent promotion reflects the senior-level leadership he had exhibited since joining the company from Norwegian Cruise Line, where had been vice president of key accounts.

"Alex's wealth of experience, his energy and enthusiasm, and especially his ability to educate and motivate our travel agent partners has proven instrumental in leading our sales team and travel partners to improve their sales results consistently," said Gary Murphy, co-owner and vice president of sales.
