Follow the incredible career journey of Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, from her stories as an ambitious young woman to President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises to Vice Chairman for External Affairs at Royal Caribbean Group.

A shining testament to the value of being an authentic leader and never sacrificing your integrity, Lutoff-Perlo details the ins and outs of her extraordinary 40-year career. She has risen to the top in a male-dominated industry, while refusing to compromise her values and bringing countless others along with her. Along the way, she ultimately transformed and redefined relaxed luxury cruising with the launch of the bold, innovative Edge Series ships in 2018, which drove unprecedented demand for Celebrity Cruises and propelled the brand’s financial performance. She climbed the corporate ladder from the very bottom and overcame countless obstacles to reach the top of the cruise industry.

In Making Waves, Lutoff-Perlo walks readers through her triumphs, hardships, and learning  moments. She breaks down her unique leadership style as the first woman to take the helm as President & CEO of one of the Royal Caribbean Group’s brands that catapulted Celebrity Cruises to heights no one thought possible, simply by caring deeply for people and putting others first. Readers will learn how she used her superpowers to set herself apart from other leaders—leaving guests and employees in awe of her authenticity and kindness. 

Individuals from all walks of life will take heart and gain insights they can apply to their own lives and careers: to have integrity, to pay it forward, and to make waves, wherever and whoever they are.
