Del Rio Tells Cavuto "We Have Engines and Propellers"
NCLH CEO says they have to operate somewhere. They are a publicly traded business.
During an appearance on the Neil Cavuto show on Friday, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings President and CEO Frank Del Rio explained why sailing outside of the U.S. would be necessary if the CDC does not lift the current ban on cruising. He told Neil that cruise lines are publicly traded companies and are responsible to their shareholders and employees to operate. Del Rio also said that the cruise industry has an advantage over other tourist industries because the ships have engines and propellers and can sail wherever they would be permitted operate. During the same interview, Del Rio told Cavuto that on Monday, April 5th, NCL presented the CDC with a complete and robust plan that included mandatory vaccinations. At this point, they have not received a response.
