More than 100 Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association Platinum members joined over 30 high-ranking FCCA member line cruise executives for the PAMAC Cruise Summit, Jan. 14-18. Celebrity Constellation hosted the group and a series of meetings and networking events to discuss industry trends and standards and forge relationships.

'FCCA membership events like the PAMAC Cruise Summit are essential to both the members and cruise line representatives,' said Micky Arison, chairman of Carnival Corp. & plc and the FCCA. 'They join some of the industry's most influential decision-makers with significant stakeholders from the Caribbean and Latin America, which leads to positive developments for all parties.'

The summit fostered more mutual growth for Platinum members and member line executives, FCCA president Michele Paige added.

The four-day event included sit-down dinners and one-on-one meetings between Platinum members and the cruise executives of their choice. Plus, Platinum members got the opportunity to present and discuss their latest happenings and receive input from a panel of executives.

Nightly receptions offered networking opportunities, and excursions included the Old Town Trolley Tour in Key West and Blue Lagoon Island's dolphin encounters.

The PAMAC Cruise Summit is one of many events the FCCA coordinates for its Platinum members and member lines throughout the year.
