Cruise line major Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings has agreed a partnership deal with Alaska Native-owned Huna Totem Corporation to develop a second cruise pier in Icy Strait Point in Hoonah, Alaska.

The company, which operates the Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises brands, informed that the pier is scheduled to be completed for the summer 2020 Alaska cruise season and would be built to accommodate Norwegian Cruise Line’s Breakaway Plus-class ships.

The partnership will provide Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings’ brands with preferential berthing rights in the popular port destination and allow the company to increase its calls to Icy Strait Point.

Currently Oceania Cruises’ Regatta, Seven Seas Mariner, Norwegian Jewel and Norwegian Joy are scheduled to call on Icy Strait Point in the 2019 season.

“This partnership marks the latest step in our ongoing efforts to promote economic development in the area and make a positive economic impact on the Alaska tourism industry,” said Howard Sherman, executive vice president of onboard revenue and destination development of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.
