Here he was responsible for the worldwide operation of 12 cruise ships, as well as major developments ashore in the Port of  Southampton. He has also led Carnival's emergency response organisation.

After secondary and pre-sea education at the London Nautical School Naylor went to sea as a deck cadet trainee navigating officer and studied at Warsash Nautical College for his foreign-going Master Mariner's certificate.

This is one of the most demanding jobs in the UK maritime sector, with wide-ranging responsibilities for the safety of ships and seafarers and the sea itself. My team and I are looking forward to welcoming Philip on board.'
