New Zealand’s first-timer
Richard Carvalho of ISS-McKay is a first-time attendee with the New Zealand delegation, led by New Zealand Cruise Association CEO Kevin O’Sullivan, who will chalk up 16 annual Seatrade events this year.
O’Sullivan is keen to share the news that Napier and all ports except Gisborne are operational again after the devastation caused by Tropical Cyclone Gabrielle last month.
‘By the time next season rolls around Gisborne will also be up and running again for cruise,’ he said.
