Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has made organisational changes, scheduled to be implemented following the launch of ‘’Norwegian Encore’, the company’s newest cruise ship.
They include the appointment of Harry Sommer (pictured) as NCL’s President and CEO.
He will replace Andy Stuart, who will step down from his role on 31st December, 2019 but will remain as senior advisor through 31st March, 2020 to ensure a smooth transition.
Stuart joined NCL in 1988 and held several key executive positions during his tenure.
“He will leave on a high note after delivering the brand’s latest ship, ‘Norwegian Encore’, the last ship in the most successful ship class in the company’s history,” said Frank Del Rio, President and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings.
“The Board and I are confident that Harry is the right person to succeed Andy as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Norwegian Cruise Line brand and look forward to him leveraging his breadth of knowledge and extensive experience in the industry and our company to take the brand to new heights,” Del Rio said.
