The Marine Hotel Association (MHA) and Cruise Industry News (CIN) today announced a new partnership, making CIN the official media partner of the MHA.

MHA is a not-for-profit international association representing the cruise industry and its supporting supplier community, and dedicated to enhancing the overall quality of the guest experience. 

CIN is the leading media authority on the industry and has been covering the cruise industry for over four decades.

Through exclusive interviews and research, the CIN Quarterly Magazine covers all aspects of the industry, and will be soon available to MHA members via a new section on the MHA website at

MHA members will now receive complimentary access via the Association’s website to CIN’s Quarterly Magazine, as well as access to select CIN reports, as well as other key industry resources.

In a joint statement on the new partnership, MHA board president, John McGirl, and executive director, Caroline Pritchard expressed enthusiasm for the decision to cement a collaborative partnership with CIN.

“MHA wants to focus on its own mission and with this new partnership comes the perfect melding of expertise from two sides, both connected by a common interest,” they said.

“Our collaborative efforts will introduce an important and meaningful addition to our membership services through the sharing of CIN publication resources.”

“The MHA plays a vital and unique role in the industry by bringing together key decision makers and vendors, both small and large, in a friendly and cost effective environment,” said Monty Mathisen, managing editor of Cruise Industry News. “Its not-for-profit status and scholarship program is commendable. The MHA’s 34th annual trade show and conference in Naples next April will be a key industry event in 2019.”
