Appointed the first female president and CEO of a publicly traded cruise line, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo believes in opening up the world through travel and has been called, “the force behind the world’s coolest, new cruise ship, Celebrity Edge.”

One of her earliest decisions was to hire the first U.S. female cruise ship captain, and she has raised the ratio of women on the bridge from 3 to 20 percent in just 18 months. As the leader of RCCL’s Global Marine Organization, Lutoff-Perlo ensures that the corporation’s 50 ships run safely, smoothly, and efficiently, overseeing assets worth $20 billion.
