Recently, in addition to her UK & Ireland responsibilities, Rzymowska also now oversees the Asia region for Celebrity Cruises in her promoted role of Vice President & Managing Director. She is also the executive sponsor of the LGBT Employee Resource Group. 

Prior to this she has also held various senior roles at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, Universal Studios and Thomas Cook.
