Richard Vogel welcomed Juan Pablo Franky, the Vice Minister of Tourism for Colombia to the dinner

170 partners working with Pullmantur Cruises from across Spain and Latin America attended a dinner event held by the cruise line in Madrid during Fitur 2019 travel show.

Attendees including representatives from tour operators and travel agents, as well as from the world of politics and tourism-based organisations and partnering airlines heard Richard J. Vogel, president & ceo of Pullmantur Cruises highlight the company’s ‘excellent results achieved in 2018’ and expressed his gratitude to all partners.

Vogel also stressed the high hopes he has for this year, in line with the global trend in the sector.

‘We go into 2019 fully committed to expanding the sector and helping boost the economies in the areas we operate in, while positioning ourselves as market leaders in Spain and the first choice for Latin American passengers,’ he added.

This winter, Pullmantur is operating Zenith in the Canary Islands for a third consecutive season and Horizon is debuting in the Middle East.
