Norwegian Cruise Line’s Vice President International Sales Eamonn Ferrin paid tribute to its ‘wonderful’ travel agent partners as he announced he was leaving the company.

In a Linkedin post on 30 December, Eamonn also thanked NCL President Harry Sommer for appointing him Managing Director of VP for the UK and Ireland four years ago.

And he praised his colleagues for their hard work, commitment, fortitude and passion’ to get cruises operating again post-COVID and ‘reaching a new milestone of record bookings in November 2022’.

“I pass on my heartfelt thanks to all my wonderful colleagues in the UK, MEA, Brazil, LATAM, India, Europe, Australia & APAC teams and of course, my USA & Canadian colleagues in all areas for world-wide for welcoming me as part of the NCL & NCLH team and working so hard with me and each other along the way,” he said.

“I also want to pay tribute to our wonderful travel agent partners worldwide who supported us on our journey in the last four years.

“It sounds clichéd but it truly is not…you are a huge part of our success past, present and future. The future for the cruise industry is very bright indeed, of that, I have no doubt (especially with the number of new ships coming in the years ahead including the beautiful new Prima class ships).

“So, as we come to the end of an old year and enter a New Year in 2023, I will depart from the NCL family with a wish to you all and an Irish blessing ‘may your days be many, and your troubles few, May peace be within you, may your heart be strong and may you find what you are seeking wherever you roam’”.

Eamonn joined NCL in 2019 and was promoted to VP International Sales in 2021.

An NCL spokesperson told Travel Gossip: “Eamonn Ferrin, Vice President International Business, is no longer with the company.

“We are grateful for his contributions and wish him all the best in his future endeavours. We remain highly committed to our trade partners globally and will announce his replacement soon.”
