Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has appointed Eamonn Ferrin as vice president of international business.
In his new capacity, Ferrin will oversee NCL’s sales efforts outside of the US and Canada, expanding the group's international footprint and "capitalising on the great global pent-up demand for cruising and the new opportunities on the horizon".
Ferrin will report to Todd Hamilton, NCL’s senior vice president of sales.
The industry veteran joined NCL in 2019 as vice president and managing director for the UK, Ireland, Israel, South Africa and Middle East.
In his previous role, he grew UK's market position including launching incentive programme NCL Freestyle Rewards, a new travel agent portal and resource centre Norwegian Central, and a fly-cruise booking platform NCL Air.
He also played a key role in pushing Norwegian Jade's deployment in South Africa, where the ship will become NCL's first to offer roundtrip cruises from Cape Town beginning December 2021.
Ferrin has more than 23 years in travel and hospitality, having taken various CEO, COO and managing director roles in the UK, Canada and internationally for brands including Air Canada, Holidaybreak and MyTravel.
He also serves as a member of the CLIA Executive Committee and the CLIA Steering Group for the UK.
