Christine Duffy has had a pretty storied career from humble beginnings to becoming President of CCL.  Prior to that she was president of CLIA, the primary organization that supports the entire industry.  There is nothing wrong with her leadership, the poster has posted and maligned much, everybody is on the cross hairs.  Here is a link you can research more and see for yourself.

How did she go from gov't medical related to cruise industry jimbo? That doesn't seem like it gels.

I’m glad the CDC exists and they are monitoring the cruise industry.

 From the CDC Mission Statement:

 

"CDC works 24/7 to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same."

 

So basically they already failed when it comes to COVID-19

The CDC didn't layoff the pandemic response team or any of the other missteps.

I don't know all the history here corporation wise....what is wrong with Duffy's leadership?

 

Stonewalled or downright ignored court orders, though she certainly wasn't alone, in a large suit involving pollution.  Suit is still on going.

Wouldn't it be great if we didn't need a pandemic response team because it was prevented from happening?

Duffy is over Carnival Cruise Lines, not Princess.

Nothing.....some internet posters seem to be infatuated with this and are doing all they can to spread opinions not based on fact.

Here's a breakdown on the layoffs.

If I was able to, I'd tell them sorry they were let go and thank them for all their help behind the scenes adding to a great cruise experience, and I hope they all are able to return when things improve 😞

 

https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/22980-carnival-corp-details-over-500-florida-layoffs.html

 

Carnival Corporation and Carnival Cruise Line has detailed over 500 layoffs in its Miramar, Florida, offices in a state filing. 

 

Carnival said that the layoffs and furloughs would commence on June 1. Layoffs include over 420 jobs in Miramar, along with four furloughs.

 

In addition are layoffs for 82 individuals and 28 furloughs for workers that Carnival said work from home throughout Florida and in other states, but take direction from and operate within business units located in Miramar.

 

Carnival added that it anticipated the furloughs to be temporary and layoffs to be permanent, citing the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Among the positions on the cut list:

  • 134 Personal Vacation Planners
  • 37 Cruise Vacation Specialists
  • 42 Teleagents, Cruise Vacation Specialist
  • 60 Agents, Groups
  • 28 Agents, Online Support
  • 24 Agents, Resolutions
  • 57 Agents, Service
  • Director, Strategic Projects

A majority of delineated positions are lower level personnel who have direct contact with customers.

 

Maybe lower, mid, and upper level management are going to provide customer service.

LOL - that will be a hoot.  They had better get very good training, as I am sure they don't know how to handle what the pvp's do.  Before you could call 5 different people at CCL and get 5 different answers.  Now it may be 10!!  Expect to know more than they do - educate yourself before you call!!

No training needed. Just hangout here on CC for a month and they will become cruise vacation experts in no time.

Terrible day for the hard-working employees who've done nothing wrong.

But it's also another missed opportunity for corporate to clean house. Security should have been carrying Duffy's boxes out the door today, and Donald's interview should have been done on the sidewalk. 

Remember h8er? This sounds like hatetoseeyougo.
