Cruise Ship Hospitality Expo Welcomes David Sagrista to the Advisory Board!
Cruise Ship Hospitality Expo (CSH) and Cruise Ship Hospitality Expo Europe (CSHE) are delighted to announce the addition of David Sagrista, Director of Business Operations, Expeditions & Hotel Management at Mystic Cruises, to the Advisory Board.
A bit about David Sagrista:
David Sagrista has almost 20 years’ experience in the cruise industry, starting out at Crystal Cruises. Moving upwards through the ranks to become Crystal Cruises’ Hotel Operations Integration Manager, David was part of the team that ran the navigation of the largest ever passenger vessel to navigate the Northwest Passage from Vancouver to New York City, on a 28-day voyage with 1500 crew and passengers.
Following a 10+ year stint at Crystal Cruises, David made the move to specialist expedition cruise line Mystic Cruises, where he is now the Director of Business Operations for Expeditions & Hotel Management.
Focusing on building the cleanest, safest, and quietist ships in luxury expedition cruise, Mystic Cruises are a newly formed, Portuguese-owned cruise line offering cruises to Antarctica, the Arctic, Northern Europe, and the Mediterranean. Their inaugural ship MS World Explorer is equipped with the world’s most advanced, state-of-the-art hybrid propulsion system, showing a commitment to reducing emissions that is coupled with a no-plastics-on-board pledge. Working closely with suppliers to choose products that do not contain plastic or plastic packaging, Mystic Cruises are well on the way to their goal of having the cleanest ships in the luxury expedition sector.
We are very excited to welcome David’s knowledge of the cruise industry and the hospitality operations surrounding it to our Advisory Board – welcome David!
