Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has appointed Eamonn Ferrin (pictured) as vice president and managing director for the line’s UK, Ireland, Israel, South Africa and the Middle East markets.
He will report directly to NCLH President International, Harry Sommer.

Reporting to Ferrin will be Nick Wilkinson, who will take on a newly created role as regional vice president of business development for NCL.
“Eamonn’s appointment comes at an exciting time in our company’s history, as we continue to strengthen our global footprint,” said Sommer. “The UK is our second largest source market globally, and Israel, South Africa and the Middle East are emerging markets that demonstrate enormous growth potential.
“Eamonn brings more than 20 years of senior-level experience in the travel and hospitality industry, and having him lead our operations in some of our most important international markets is a testament to our global growth strategy,” he said.
