Carnival Cruise Lines, which has been plagued by a string of technical problems that have left passengers stranded at port and at sea, is nonetheless moving to expand its operations.
Search efforts aboard the capsized Costa Concordia resumed Wednesday, even as the official overseeing the operation acknowledged for the first time it would take a miracle to find any more survivors from the ship's Jan. 13 grounding.
Italy's cruise liner tragedy turned into an environmental crisis Monday, as rough seas battering the stricken mega-ship raised fears that fuel might leak into pristine waters off Tuscany that are part of a protected sanctuary for dolphins, porpoises and whales.
The region is perfect for cruising, Mr. Foschi said, because of its year-round calms seas.
"Carnival is really investing a lot in Asia," said Pier Luigi Foschi, chairman and chief executive at Carnival Asia, in the AFP report. "We are trying to stimulate the demand of the market. Today, it's a bit quiet as cruising is not well known."
