‘The existing cruise team is being further developed to ensure the best possible support for cruise partners and I will be supported by Thea George as we focus solely on delivering our cruise services,’ added Keeler who joined ABP in 2011 as a management trainee.

The number of cruise ships calling at Southampton grew from 250 to 500 between 2009-2019.

‘Despite the current challenges Covid19 poses, we remain confident that cruise has a very strong future and we are looking forward to welcoming passengers back to the Port of Southampton, when it is safe to do so,’ said Keeler.

Keeler was a finalist in the Seatrade Cruise News 20 under 40 Awards in 2018.
