Richard Fain, chairman of Royal Caribbean Cruises, said: “I regret his decision. With his management strength and passion, he built TUI Cruises up to a dynamic and successful company, and for this I am very grateful.”

Vogel commented that having built up a successful and profitable brand and now introduced its first new ship, it was a good time to change course.

A successor is expected to be named in the next few weeks.
