Carnival Cruise Line has announced the departure of Australian vice president Jennifer Vandekreeke, after almost 11 years in the role.

Glamore joined the cruise line in 2019, after working for some of the world’s biggest brands including Kraft, Nestlé and Expedia.

Furthermore, Anton Loeb has also been promoted to a newly created role as senior director of sales and marketing for Carnival Cruise Line in Australia. Loeb has worked as the line’s local sales director for mor than eight-and-a-half years.

Commenting on the two promotions, Vandekreeke said: “I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside both Kara and Anton for a number of years, and Carnival could not be in better hands to usher in our return to service.

“Kara and Anton truly embody Carnival’s core values, and I can’t wait to see what they bring to the business.”

Commenting on her promotion, Glamore said: “It’s been a pleasure working with the Carnival team these past two years, and I’m honoured to take this next step as vice president.

There is much to look forward to once we resume cruising within Australia.

“Aussies will have more opportunities to explore their beautiful backyard by sea than ever before, and Queenslanders will be able to enjoy the fun of a Carnival cruise without leaving the state, as Carnival Spirit moves to her new Brisbane homeport.

“I’m beyond excited to continue working with our incredible partners in this new role – they will be instrumental in welcoming cruising back into Australia.”
