Holy Smoke, 32 million per year, no wonder FDR jacking rates

I've been looking at the cost of our next cruise, only looking at Princess, Regent and Oceania. I'm rather taken back how much rates have escalated on the Regent and Oceania itineraries. Did you realize FDR is making over 32 million a year? Here is a link to what your favorite executives make. Hope it comes out on this thread. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/14995-cruise-executive-compensation-del-rio-takes-home-31-9-million.html

Looks like I picked the wrong profession... being a duchess at a renaissance festival might pay for the beer he spills on a given weekend.

Wow. Are they worth this much?

NOBODY is worth that much...not that it matters to the shareholders...as long as it goes up. they're happy...

The only way to affect the CEOs salary is to vote with your wallet. When cruising gets too expensive I will find another. Mode of vacation. (Just not flying through DallasBig Smile)

Unfortunately, for those of us addicted to this particular luxury, it would be a Phyrric victory (sic)..theres always about a dozen taking your place..it would leave you on the moral high ground alright...high and dry...

It is Fairly disgusting. They could cut his pay down to $1,000,000(which is still obscene) and give every one of their 3200 employees a $9600 pay raise...

And this .... is how one gets to own a private cruise ship ;)

true that it may only be a moral victory if I am the only one to vote, but at least I will sail on a different line with a warm fuzzy feeling. To me, it is worth it.

Of course, I may also take to social media to express my opinion, for what little that is worth.

That IS really gross, even Arnold Donald, who is in charge of way more brands, only took home $9 million that year (and I don't say only as though that's not an exorbitant amount of money cuz it is!) I wonder how much they make now?

There is something really wrong in the NCLH structure if their CEO is making over 3x more than the CEO of Carnival Corporation. They really could filter a lot of that cash down to tons of other hard-working employees.

Well, maybe we been too harsh on poor old FDR. After all he is just a pi—an- when compared to those who wouldn’t even let him in their neighborhood.

For instance---

“At a recent event, Janet Gornick was greeted with disbelief when she mentioned in passing that the top 25 hedge fund managers make an average of $850 million a year. But her number was correct.

One survey found that Americans, on average, think that corporate C.E.O.s are paid about 30 times as much as ordinary workers, which hasn’t been true since the 1970s. These days the ratio is more like 300 to 1.”
