Kim Guimaraes

Crystal Cruises has appointed Kim Guimaraes as the line’s new Vice President of Sales & Strategic Partnerships in North America. The appointment comes on the heels of Eric Graves’ decision to retire at the end of this year, after a 43 yr. career in travel industry sales, including a quarter-century with Crystal.

Guimaraes will be responsible for the development and implementation of the line’s sales and partnership strategies, along with oversight of the North America sales team. She will report to Carmen Roig, Senior Vice President of Marketing & Sales. She is based in Crystal’s new Miami branch office.


Eric Graves has been with Crystal since the company’s inception 25 years ago, and for the last decade has led Crystal’s domestic sales efforts. His last day will be 31DEC and he will assist Guimaraes in transitioning to her new role until that date.


“As a loyal, valued member of the Crystal family, Eric has contributed enormously to Crystal’s sales growth, and we wish him and his family the very best in retirement.” said Edie Rodriguez, President & CEO of Crystal Cruises. “While we are sad to see Eric go, we are thrilled to have Kim join the Crystal team, and are confident that her diverse sales experience will be instrumental in leading our global sales efforts during a time of rapid growth for our luxury brand.”
