Carnival Cruise Lines
Proven Bc/dr Solutions With
Fortune 500 Companies
The Arise network’s flex capacity and ability to send urgent service requests to the call centers servicing the Carnival program produced an additional 60% capacity to handle more than 1,800 hours of customer service call volume.
In late 2012, Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on the northeastern coastline of the United States. Hurricane Sandy was the second costliest Atlantic hurricane in history, and with her path of destruction affecting 24 states, left millions without power and caused a number of disruptions across the travel industry. Carnival Cruise Lines had over nine sailings that were impacted by Sandy, and affected nearly 20,000 passengers with last minute cancellations, port of call changes, and shortened cruise itineraries. Carnival needed a partner who has the flex capacity to handle last-minute emergencies.
After closely monitoring the impact of the storm with the client, and understanding the necessary measures that needed to be taken, an urgent service request was issued and communicated to all service providers servicing the Carnival Program to ensure dedicated support in the time of crisis.
The ability of the Arise network to provide unparalleled flex capacity materialized into over 1,800 additional hours (a 60% increase over the locked forecast for that period).
