19 years at Royal Caribbean
Carbonell has more than two decades of travel industry experience. Over the past 19 years at Royal Caribbean International, she held several marketing positions including directing e-commerce and integrated marketing, media and consumer and trade marketing. Earlier, in the Latin America office of the Walt Disney Co.'s Parks and Resorts division, initiatives included increasing messaging and revenue through co-branded marketing and helping launch Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
'I am looking forward to taking advantage of the momentum the company has established with the launch of the ultra-luxury yacht, Scenic Eclipse,' Carbonell said. 'Scenic and Emerald Cruises are such trend-setting brands. And the ongoing growth of both lines, with new ships and new destinations, is going to make for very exciting times for my marketing team.'
Carbonell will be based at Scenic's new US headquarters in Hollywood, Florida.
