Introducing SSA Marine’s New Cruise Division: A Maritime Revolution

SSA Marine has announced the launch of a new, dedicated cruise division, as well as the appointment of cruise industry veteran Stefano Borzone as president, according to a company statement.

The statement mentioned that the new business unit focuses on SSA Marine’s distinctive service and partnership capabilities and provides a platform for future growth opportunities to meet the expanding needs of cruise lines and their customers.

Stefano Borzone, a veteran port operations and development executive, has held several high-ranking roles within Carnival Corporation, as well as a 13-year tenure with Metro Cruise Services, where he served as president. In his new position, Borzone will be in charge of all SSA Marine cruise operations, in collaboration with all joint venture partners, customers, and port authorities.

The new division will aim at expanding the company’s long-standing relationships with major cruise lines, and will focus on creating innovative, value generative solutions for its cruise, port, and destination partners. The division will maintain safety, labor relations, and sustainability initiatives as its key priorities.

“Establishing a standalone cruise division is a unique opportunity to build on the strong foundation that our talented team of terminal operators from SSA Marine and Ceres have established with our cruise line customers and port authorities,” stated Uffe Ostergaard, CEO of Carrix, the parent company of SSA Marine. “The addition of Stefano’s extensive industry experience and leadership to our team will be pivotal as we speed up the growth of this substantial line of business in the forthcoming years.”

“I am exhilarated to join SSA Marine at this crucial juncture,” expressed Borzone, the newly appointed president of SSA Marine’s cruise division. “SSA Marine is renowned for their diverse operational network, their longstanding partnerships, and their collaborative approach to the development, investment, and operation of cruise terminal locations. I am eager to work alongside our partners to deliver excellent port operations, and to lead vital sustainability programs in support of the broader goals set by the cruise industry.”
