About this event

Welcome aboard for the relaunch of live FCCA events! This June 22nd PortMiami will host us as we set sail on an exclusive gathering to help prepare for the return of cruising to the Caribbean, Central and South America, and Mexico.

The FCCA-PortMiami Return to Sail Summit will join a maximum of 200 persons, including a tailored list of FCCA Member Line executives, live at PortMiami for a one-day event of workshops and networking opportunities. This is a live event only.

Eight Presidents and/or CEOs have already confirmed as of May 17 – from Holland America Group; MSC Cruises USA; Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.; Norwegian Cruise Line; Regent Seven Seas; Royal Caribbean Group; Royal Caribbean International; and Virgin Voyages – along with a dozen high-level cruise executives specifically selected for the event to drive mutual benefits for attendees.


Networking Opportunities

With the small size of the event, there will be big chances for attendees to interact directly with participating cruise executives – from before and after the workshops to functions meant to bring all together, including a Meet & Greet, lunch and more in the works.



Due to the fluid nature of COVID-19 protocols, specifics cannot be provided. However, the event will adhere to all current protocols, which will be set in partnership with PortMiami and outlined closer to the event.
