NCL Brands Move In New Southampton Base

By ,   June 17, 2016 ,   Cruise Industry

The 3 Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings operating brands came together under one roof in Southampton UK.

The relocation sees Oceania Cruises, Regent Seven Seas and Norwegian Cruise Line based in a building previously used by Carnival UK prior to its operations being consolidated into single headquarters in the port city.

The three US brands share a location for the first time since NCL acquired the Prestige Cruise Holdings parent company in November 2014.

The move comes ahead of Norwegian Cruise Line returning to ex-UK cruising in 2017 for the first time since 2010 with a vessel sailing from Southampton.

The relocation underlines company’s growth plans for each of the brands. Oceania Cruises recently introduced ms Sirena to its fleet while Regent launches Seven Seas Explorer next month. NCL will bring Norwegian Joy, the first purpose-built ship for the Chinese market, into service in 2017.

The new address of the company is: Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd, 4th Floor, Mountbatten House, Grosvenor Square, Southampton, SO15 2JU.
