This week, Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts aboard the brand new flagship of MSC Cruises—the Seaside—sailing out of PortMiami in Miami, Florida. A truly new design, the ship boasts more outdoor space than any other ship at sea, complete with the widest waterfront boardwalk. Tom Stieghorst, Senior Editor of Travel Weekly, joins the show to talk about the explosion of new cruise ships and how MSC took a radical new design to enter the U.S. market. Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly gives an expansive interview about the airline industry and Southwest’s plans for 2018 and beyond. Anne Kalosh, US Editor of Seatrade Cruise News, provides a firsthand report of the cruise industry. Celebrity Chef Roy Yamaguchi talks about the Pacific Asian influences of his first onboard restaurants. Rick Sasso, Chairman of MSC Cruises USA, talks about MSC’s rapid fleet growth—it has more ships on order than any other cruise line—and it is still a family owned, family run company. There’s all of this and more as Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from the MSC Seaside in Miami, Florida.
