Norwegian Cruise Line furloughs 20% of workforce

   May 3, 2020 ,   Cruise Industry

Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd (NCLH) is furloughing ~20% of its workforce through the end of July 2020 after the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic prompted all major cruise companies to suspend passenger shipping. The furloughs affect shoreside employees in the USA and some international offices.

In the statement, NCLH said the suspension was "continuing to have a material impact" on the company's business, which requires "further measures in order to weather these challenging and unprecedented times as well as ensure our company’s future."
