Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings reported net income of $470.4
million in the key third quarter, which includes summer cruises in Europe and Alaska.
Net income was up more than 17%. Total revenue increased
12.5% to $1.9 billion.
"Our three brands fully benefited from strong demand
for peak summer sailings, with particular strength in premium-priced
itineraries in Alaska and Europe, resulting in the highest quarterly revenue and
earnings in our history," said CFO Mark Kempa.
Kempa said the outlook for full-year earnings has been moved
upwards to $1.08 billion.
"The robust booking environment for cruise vacations is
alive and well as evidenced by our stellar booked position for 2019, which
continues to exceed this year's record levels, with booking momentum accelerating
for sailings throughout 2019 and extending into 2020," said Norwegian
Cruise Line Holdings CEO Frank Del Rio in a statement.
The company's three brands are Norwegian Cruise Line,
Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
