Carnival Executive Vice President Rodríguez Departing

Carnival Cruise Line said Rubén Rodríguez, executive vice president of ship operations, is leaving the company “to pursue a new career opportunity.” His last day at Carnival is July 23.

Gus Antorcha, the current senior vice president of guest operations and services, has been promoted to executive vice president of guest shipboard operations overseeing hotel operations, guest commerce, crew operations and analytics for shipboard guest operations.

Martin Landtman will continue in his role as senior vice president of marine shipboard operations, reporting to Carnival President and CEO Christine Duffy.

“We thank Ruben for all that he has done for Carnival Cruise Line, and I am personally grateful to have had the opportunity to work with him,” Duffy said. “While we will miss him, we wish him every success in the future.”

Rodríguez joined Carnival in October 2007 as executive vice president of marketing and guest experience, reporting to then-president and CEO Gerald Cahill. Rodríguez joined the Fun Ship line from the Miami office of Boston Consulting Group, where Carnival was a client. He moved up to executive vice president-ship operations in December 2009.

Before Boston Consulting Group, Rodríguez worked for Charles Schwab Corp. and eToys International.

Cahill left Carnival in late 2014 and was replaced on Feb. 1 by Duffy, who previously was president and CEO of Cruise Lines International Association.
