It was widely-known that the company was in the process of integrating the Norwegian brand along with Oceania and Regent under one roof, and had plans to expand its office space.
A statement from Norwegian reads:
The recent acquisition of Prestige Cruise Holdings has provided the opportunity to review our organizational structure. The company has implemented an organization designed to take advantage of synergies between the three brands and position the company for future growth.
The new structure maintains dedicated leadership and support for each of the individual brands, ensuring brand distinction and the highest quality guest experience, while finding efficiencies and leveraging best practices across the company.
The news comes after a week with the global cruise industry gathered in Miami, with rumors circulating since Monday regarding cutbacks coming at Norwegian.
Sources claiming to be familiar with the situation suggested 200 layoffs.
