Larry Pimental resigns from Azamara Club Cruises

Published on : Thursday, April 16, 2020

The owner of Royal Caribbean has announced  sweeping job cuts so Azmara Club Cruises chief executive Larry Pimental has resigned.

Considering the global coronavirus pandemic Royal Caribbean  would reduce its United States-based workforce by a quarter.

 

The company said in a statement that they told their  employees the difficult news that we were laying off or furloughing approximately 26 per cent of more than 5,000 co-workers in the United States.

They had earlier announced the early conclusion of many crew contracts and due to the circumstances of the pandemic this action is unavoidable.

They were hurts to part ways with so many good and talented people and among the ones to depart was Pimentel.

Pimentel  was appointed president and chief executive of Azamara Club Cruises in 2009 and was responsible for the strategic direction and leadership of the two-ship brand to ensure its continuous growth and success since then.

He holds more than 25 years of travel industry experience catering to the high-end consumer. Before joining the helm at Azamara, he served as president, chief executive officer and co-owner of SeaDream Yacht Club.

Earlier he worked as president and chief executive officer of Cunard Line and Seabourn Cruise Line.

He also served as president and chief executive officer of Classic Hawaii.

Royal Caribbean chief executive, Richard Fain, described Pimentel as “one of the finest minds and one of the very best people in the travel industry.

 

He considered him to be an original thinker, an entrepreneur and someone whose informed, considered opinions helped raise the bar not only at Azamara but at Royal Caribbean over the past 11 years.
