Leadership Changes Make Waves At Cruise Currents

Effective immediately, Cruise Currents Editor, Mike Faust, will take on a new title, Senior Editor. Charles Sylvia, a long time consultant for Cruise Currents and industry insider, will take on the role of Associate Editor.

As the Senior Editor of Cruise Currents, Faust will oversee the long term goals of the website in addition to focusing on publishing cruise reviews and cruise features.

“Recently, I’ve had to reduce my time spent on publishing after starting my second semester at Florida Atlantic University and accepting a position at the Boca Raton Resort & Club by Waldorf Astoria,” said Faust. “While Cruise Currents remains a high priority to me, I decided it was time to bring Charles aboard to help guide the ship. Charles is not only a good friend, but an expert on the industry. I am truly excited to work alongside him and welcome him to the team.”

As Associate Editor, Sylvia will focus on publishing feature articles focusing on cruising tips, ship overviews, and general cruising guides.

“It’s a great privilege to be part of Cruise Currents, the leading source for relevant cruise industry developments and practical cruise travel advice. As Associate Editor, I look forward to working with Senior Editor Michael Faust in providing the best information on global cruise news, written at the highest standards of journalism.”

Freelance journalist, Judy Colbert, will also join the Cruise Currents team as a contributing writer alongside current contributor, Susan McKee.
