Andy Harmer is to return to the Association of Cruise Experts as director. Harmer previously held the role between 2006 and 2009, where he introduced its cruise convention and National Cruise Week. He will now leave his two-year role at The Cruise Portfolio to rejoin the association. “I have thoroughly enjoyed my two years with The Cruise Portfolio and leave with a clearer understanding of the relationship between agents and cruise lines, knowledge that I can use to further develop and drive ACE forward to ensure the organisation continues to contribute to the growth in cruise holiday,” said Harmer on his appointment. He will take up his role in early November.
