Ruben Rodriguez, formerly Carnival Cruise Line’s executive vice president of marketing and guest experience, has been named executive vice president of ship operations.

In Rodriguez’ new role, he will oversee ship operations — including hotel, technical and marine operations — while also retaining responsibility for the guest experience area.

“Ruben has worked very closely with ship operations in his product development role, and we believe there are significant benefits to uniting all of those functions under one leader,” said president and CEO Gerry Cahill. “He has done an outstanding job since he joined the organization two years ago and has achieved many major accomplishments in a variety of areas. I am extremely confident in his ability to take on this exciting new role.”
