MIAMI — Royal Caribbean Group (RCG) has rejoined the London-based United Kingdom Chamber of Shipping in a bid to boost its regional business interests. RCG operates Royal Caribbean International (RCL), Celebrity Cruises, and Silversea. The company is also publicly-traded on the New York Stock Exchange and controls over $32 billion in assets.

“We are delighted to be re-joining the Chamber of Shipping at such a critical time for our industry,” said Ruth Marshall, a vice president and legal counsel for RCL, operating out of the United Kingdom. “The leadership and counsel demonstrated by the Chamber during this unprecedented time has been exceptional and we are proud to affirm our long-term commitment to the UK maritime industry and add our voice to the influential work being undertaken by the team.”

Bob Sanguinetti, the chief executive of the chamber, also welcomed RCG back to the trade group.

“I am thrilled to announce Royal Caribbean Group as the latest company to join the Chamber,” he said. “The Royal Caribbean Group brands are known around the world and I am delighted we have strengthened our cruise representation at the Chamber. By adding to our membership, we help raise the profile of our sector and increase our influence amongst politicians.”
