Block takes on itineraries, tours as Milan exits Virgin

Diana Block became VP revenue, itinerary & destination following Craig Milan's departure
Craig Milan, one of Virgin Voyages' earliest hires, has left to pursue other interests. His duties were assumed by Diana Block Garcia.

As VP itinerary planning & destination development, Milan crafted itineraries and excursions—or 'shore things' in Virgin lingo—for the high-profile start-up line.

Block Garcia's role was expanded to take on these areas. She is now VP revenue, itinerary & destination, after previously serving as VP pricing and proposition.

'Sad to see Craig go'

Tom McAlpin, president and CEO of Virgin Voyages, told Seatrade Cruise News he was 'sad to see Craig go' but there are other things he wishes to do.

Block Garcia joined Virgin in November 2017. Earlier she had worked a stint for Pullmantur following many years with Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., where she had VP roles in revenue management, deployment/itinerary planning and newbuild.

Milan had been with Virgin since early 2016. Before that he consulted for a variety of travel-related businesses. Milan, too, had spent years at Royal Caribbean. He was president of Royal Celebrity Tours and SVP land operations.
