Dozen years with Celebrity
Bonner joined Celebrity Cruises in 2008 as director of on-board revenue. In 2018 she moved to Australia to oversee the Royal Caribbean, Celebrity and Azamara brands and in January 2020 she was appointed to her most recent role.
‘I extend my deepest thanks to her for her leadership, creativity and passion over the years and for helping to ensure a smooth transition.’ Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO of Celebrity Cruises, said.
