NCL brands move in together at new Southampton base

The three Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings operating brands have come together under one roof in Southampton.

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

It is the first time the three US brands have shared a location since Norwegian Cruise Line acquired Prestige Cruise Holdings, parent company of Regent Seven Seas Cruises and Oceania Cruises, in November 2014.

The move comes ahead of NCL returning to ex-UK cruising next year for the first time since 2010 with a ship sailing from Southampton.

The relocation underlines the company’s growth plans for each of the individual brands.

Oceania Cruises recently introduced small ship Sirena (pictured) to its fleet while Regent Seven Seas Cruises launches Seven Seas Explorer next month and NCL will bring Norwegian Joy, the first ship purpose-built for the Chinese market, into service next year.

Harry Sommer, international business development executive vice president, said: “We are absolutely delighted to finally have all three brands under the same roof, especially in Southampton, a location that is synonymous with the UK cruise industry.

“The move is testament to how the three lines have successfully come together and will enable us to easily adapt as each brand develops and grows.”

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