Carlos Torres de Navarra exits

This follows the departure of CEO Carlos Torres de Navarra, who left to pursue other opportunities.

Shamosh heads commercial affairs for ITM Group, whose interests include Mexico’s Puerto Costa Maya; Puerto Plata’s new cruise port, Taino Bay; and Roatán cruise port, Honduras. 

Grand Lucayan project

Holistica is a 50-50 joint venture between RCL and ITM. The regeneration of Grand Lucayan resort in Freeport, Grand Bahama, was announced as the first project last June. 

Torres de Navarra had taken Holistica's helm in October as its first CEO. Earlier he had been with Carnival Corp. & plc as VP global port and destination development and, previously, VP strategic and commercial port development for Carnival Cruise Line. Before Carnival, he spent seven years with Royal Caribbean.
