Arnold Deutschl has over twenty-five years of extensive cruise, travel and hospitality industry experience. After graduating from a well-known Austrian Hotel industry college, he held various positions at several upscale hotels in Germany and Great Britain.

In 1975 Arnold began his cruise industry career with five-star plus Royal Viking Line. In the course of over sixteen years, he served in numerous management capacities aboard all of the ships of Royal Viking Line, his last three positions Maitre d'Hotel, Food and Beverage Manager and Hotel Director aboard the ultra-deluxe Royal Viking Sun, now called the Prinsendam. In his last position, Arnold managed the entire onboard hotel operations for seven hundred fifty passengers and over four hundred crew. During his time with Royal Viking Line, he was involved in numerous charter projects, including the global sales convention for Toyota Corporation, international incentive arrangements for Digital Corporation and the site inspection for the pre planning for General Electric's NBC Barcelona Olympic charter of the Royal Viking Sun.

After leaving Royal Viking Line in 1991 he was actively involved in the start up of Distinctive Voyages International, Inc., a "Cruises Only" travel company. The company specialized marketing deluxe cruises to the international market, with offices in Maine and Queensland, Australia. DVI became in a very short time an API/Virtuoso member and Arnold gained extensive experience in the corporate and leisure travel industry. In addition to being actively involved in the operation of DVI, in 1992, upon returning from Australia to the United States, he joined Regency Cruises as Manager of Hotel Operations and was later promoted to Director of Hotel Operations. During his time with Regency he managed the hotel operations of five ships of the Regency fleet. During that time, he coordinated Tandy Corporation's Radio Shack charter of the Regent Rainbow and a variety of alumni and religious group charters.

After leaving Regency Cruises in 1995, he incorporated Creative Cruise Projects International with the purpose of marketing cruise ships to corporations and associations on a worldwide basis. All marketing material was translated from English into German and Japanese. In 1996 he was invited to join Cruise Holdings as Director of Hotel Operation Projects during the take-over of Dolphin Cruise Lines. Until 1999 he held several senior hotel management positions with the new Premier Cruises, both aboard ships and shore side. In 2000 he joined Imperial Majesty Cruise Line's startup team as Director of Hotel Operations, the company operating 2-day timeshare cruises from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Nassau, Bahamas. Since leaving Imperial Majesty Cruise Line in 2001, he returned to Creative Cruise Projects International and is presently advising a number of domestic and international clients on various cruise projects.

Clients can rest assured, Arnold will provide his personal attention and professional commitment to projects CCPI is involved in. As to our "Modus Operandi", please see our Code of Ethics.
