On September 2, 2014, Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) acquired Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises to provide a full spectrum of cruise options to our travelers. The combined company will be able to serve our guests across diverse market segments at every stage of their lives. Multi-Generational Travel-focused with A La Carte offering, Norwegian Cruise Line currently has 13 large vessels able to accommodate from 2,000 to 4,000 passengers, with a combined 34,510 berths, and sails the average of 7-day voyages. Premium and Semi-Inclusive, Oceania Cruises has 5 small to mid-sized vessels able to accommodate 684 to 1250 passengers, with a combined 4552 berths, and sails from 7 to 180-day voyages. Luxury Travel-focused and All-Inclusive, Regent Seven Seas Cruises has 3 small vessels able to accommodate 490 to 750 passengers, with a combined 1,890 berths, and sails from 7 to 30-day voyages.

All scheduled and future bookings, itineraries and promotions are business as usual with a focus on preserving and enhancing our guest experience and brand integrity. Our Holistic Travel Advisors at World Tours and Cruises expect no disruption to our guest services during the acquisition period and thereafter.

"We are fully committed to retaining the brand propositions, guest experiences and cultures of the Norwegian, Regent and Oceania brands that have allowed each to realize such success." - Kevin Sheehan, CEO, Norwegian Cruise Line
