    FCCA head to address CSEC on cruise benefits


    Michele M. PaigeIn order to seize the benefits of cruise shipping, it is first necessary to know what these benefits are. That is the view of Michele M. Paige, President of the Florida Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA), and it will also be the theme of her presentation when she takes the podium as one of the featured speakers at the 13th Shipping Executives Conference (CSEC) hosted by the Caribbean Shipping Association, at the Miami Marriott, Biscayne Bay, Miami, from May 12 to 14, 2014.

    Ms. Paige’s career in the cruise industry spans more than three decades. She spent 17 years in various positions at the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), before moving to the FCCA as its director of operations and communications, steering the association on issues such as: destination port development, product development, research and training, as well as serving as a liaison with environmental entities.

    She was appointed to head the association in January of 1994 as its executive director and named president in March 1997.

    The FCCA is a not-for-profit trade organization composed of 15 Member Cruise Lines operating more than 100 vessels in Floridian, Caribbean and Latin American waters. Created in 1972, the FCCA’s mandate is to provide a forum for discussion on tourism development, ports, tour operations, safety, security and other cruise industry issues. By fostering an understanding of the cruise industry and its operating practices, the FCCA seeks to build cooperative relationships with its partner destinations and to develop productive bilateral partnerships with every sector.
