Vandekreeke hangs up her cruise shoes

AFTER 13 years at the helm of the Carnival Cruise Line business in Australia, President and General Manager Australia Jennifer Vandekreeke will leave the company to take up a yet-to-be announced role within the local travel industry.

“After 13 fun-filled years of waterslides, cucumber sunrises and the occasional sing-along with [shipboard cruise band] Music Manila, I will be leaving the Carnival team to take on a new challenge,” Vandekreeke told travelBulletin.

“I am leaving the brand and the business in the very best of hands with the local Australia team, and I can’t wait to see where they take our fun brand next.”

Carnival Cruise Line is yet to announce who Vandekreeke’s replacement will be.
