#KeynoteSpeaker - Carnival UK's chairman David Dingle, will be the keynote speaker at the Cruise Europe Conference (CEC) in Dublin next month. He will present the ‘State of the Industry in Europe’ on the morning of May 31.

Dublin Port Company recently launched Cruise Dublin, a cruise development and marketing agency, in March. It will work with its members from retail outlets, visitor experiences and tourism bodies to promote Dublin. Cruise tourism is growing at 20% a year.

Pat Ward, head of corporate services DPC, said: “We want to promote Dublin as a premium cruise destination directly to cruise companies and work with businesses in Dublin to tailor packages to the needs of the cruiselines and their passengers.”

For passengers who want to explore on their own a Cruise Dublin Visitor Card is being developed.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
