The appointment follows the one-year anniversary of Premium All Inclusive, an increased capacity in ex-UK sailings, and the launch of Norwegian Bliss in April.

Norwegian is an innovative and contemporary brand and I look forward to working with Nick and the business development team to help drive greater success.”
