Royal Caribbean And Celebrity Announce Key Appointments

Royal Caribbean International and Celebrity Cruises named industry veterans Dietmar Wertanzl and Rod McLeod, to two new posts created to build service quality and improve outreach to travel agents.

Wertanzl will lead Celebrity's Fleet Operations, assigning him responsibility for the brand's hotel and marine operations. Named senior vice president of Fleet Operations, Wertanzl joins Celebrity from Crystal Cruises, where he was senior vice president of Hotel Operations, and widely credited with both elevating and cementing Crystal's luxury standing.

Wertanzl's appointment follows a 25-year career in high-end lodgings and travel, which includes nine years at Crystal and six years at Royal Viking Line.

McLeod was named senior vice president of Travel Industry Relations, giving him chief responsibility for liaising with travel agents and supporting client needs.

McLeod returns to Royal Caribbean after a six-year hiatus working elsewhere in the cruise industry. Most recently, he headed American Classic Voyages as president and COO.
