Norwegian Cruise Line has made organizational changes, scheduled to be implemented following the launch of Norwegian Encore, the company’s newest cruise ship.

These changes include the planned departure of Andy Stuart, President and Chief Executive Officer of Norwegian Cruise Line, and the appointment of Harry Sommer, current President, International for Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, as Stuart’s successor.

Stuart will step down from his role on December 31, 2019 and remain with the company as Senior Advisor through March 31, 2020 to ensure a smooth transition. Stuart joined Norwegian in 1988 and held several key executive positions during his tenure of more than three decades.

“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 Chief Executive Officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.

“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 continued.
