Windstar Cruises Names John Delaney As New President
On Thursday, Windstar Cruises announced that former senior vice president of global marketing and sales for Seabourn Cruise Line, John Delaney, is now the president of the company.
Delaney, whose first day in office will be July 19, has also worked for Holland America Line in roles that included vice president of revenue marketing, director of special projects at corporate audit services and manager of management advisory services.
Before his jump into the cruise industry, Delaney worked for The Walt Disney Company as senior business planner for theme park operations revenue, manager of marketing finance and director of financial planning and analysis.
As president of Windstar Cruises, Delaney will overlook the company’s fleet of six small luxury and all-suite yachts that visit 150 ports throughout Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Costa Rica, the Panama Canal, Tahiti and the South Pacific.
“We are very pleased to welcome John on-board. Cruise vacationers and our guests have every reason to expect a new era of exciting, wonderful and memorable vacation experiences on our yachts and in the ports Windstar visits,” Windstar Cruises parent company Xanterra Parks & Resorts CEO Andrew N. Todd said in a statement. “Windstar just welcomed back the renovated Star Pride, and since taking ownership of Windstar in 2011, we have invested more than $40 million into our three sailing yachts and three motorized all-suite yachts, so this is an ideal time for John to join the company and contribute to its success.”
