Warm tributes paid to Sunvil’s Ismet Emin

Some of that is because of the high-profile incidents that have happened, and it’s been front-page news. Unfortunately, we are now seeing some of the media turning to more speculative pieces.” In a business update call last week, Carnival


Corporation chief executive Arnold Donald said: “There is no question, with so much media attention around cruise, that there will be people who may have been considering a cruise who will now be having second thoughts.” But he denied the cruise sector had been slow


to respond to the situation, which he said was recoverable, adding that loyal cruisers were booking for this summer and 2021. However, the boss of the nine-brand cruise giant


noted: “The vast majority of the population are not cruisers. We were busy knocking down myths about cruising before and we will have to return to that.” Shanks predicted it would take “three to five years”


for the cruise industry to become “really healthy” again. i T

he industry has paid tribute to Sunvil Holidays’ “fun, charming and unassuming” financial controller Ismet Emin, whose knowledge and


experience will be sorely missed. Emin, who was in his early-50s and known


to colleagues and friends as Issy, died on April 16 after contracting coronavirus. He had been in West Middlesex Hospital for 10 days. Emin joined Sunvil in 2008 having previously


worked for Inspirations and Style Holidays. Sunvil chairman Noel Josephides said: “He was


a charming and fun colleague, and he understood our complex industry’s challenges extremely well. “He had just joined Abta’s membership


committee and was relishing the new challenges presented by this role; the committee will be the poorer without his sage and knowledgeable advice, honed via years of travel industry experience. “We feel immensely sad for his wife, Vicky, and


his children.” Managing director Chris Wright, who


completed three fundraising Travel Trade Crusades with Emin, said he had been a much-loved member of the Sunvil team. He said: “Issy will be sorely missed on so


many fronts. He was a personal friend as well as a strong part of our management team at Sunvil and GIC The Villa Collection. I, for one, will always


remember his calm, invaluable and measured advice. I think I speak for everyone within Sunvil when I say we will never forget you, Issy.” Abta director of financial protection John de


Vial said: “Issy was a valued friend and colleague and participant in Abta’s membership committee. We will miss him and his good counsel very much.” Barbara Kolosinska, director of C&M


Recruitment, who joined Emin on last year’s Travel Trade Crusade, described Issy as a “caring and lovely man” with a “wicked sense of humour”. Gail Kenny, managing director of Gail Kenny


Executive Recruitment, added: “He was a genuine, trustworthy, unassuming, affable and talented financial director.”
