Royal Caribbean Chairman shares a statement over coronavirus outbreak
Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. Chairman and CEO Richard Fain appealed to the travel agent community to remain vigilant.
"The virus is something to be taken seriously, it is not a cause for panic. It ain't pretty. In fact, to use a technical term I learned in business school, it sucks," CEO Richard Fain said.
After reading enough of the endless media reports about Coronavirus, it's really easy to think that the world is coming to an end. Well, I have a spoiler alert: it's not. We're all spending time worrying, and that's natural, because we're in a storm, and when you're in the middle of a storm, it certainly feels like it'll never end. But as with most storms, it gets worse before it gets better, but it's hard to remember that this too shall pass. And while the virus is something to be taken seriously, it's not a cause for panic - not in a personal sense, and not in a business sense either," he added.
