Eleonora and Marinella have been pivotal in driving the growth of our business in Italy and I look forward to seeing this continue under their leadership,’ said Olga Piqueras, Managing Director.

Based at the Intercruises office in Rome, Prata will lead the Intercruises team in Italy, overseeing the implementation of new operational processes, product/destination development and service delivery for turnaround and shore excursion operations.
