NCLH Releases Fourth Quarter Financial Results
Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings released details about how the company performed during the fourth quarter last year, and let’s say the results were mixed at best.
Occupancy on the fleet’s ships increased to 87 percent, which was just slightly above the predicted 86.9 percent. But the total number of passengers carried during the first quarter came in at just over 551,000 as opposed to the expected 561,000.
Looking forward, the company predicted they would reach 100 percent occupancy in the first quarter and reach “historical levels” in the second. The company said it’s doing its part to trim costs.
North Carolina Woman Uses Stolen Credit Cards to Go on Cruise
A 31 year old woman was arrested in Miami after using eight stolen credit cards to pay for a Royal Caribbean cruise. Lexus Moorer of North Carolina racked up $22,425 between the stateroom and onboard board expenditures on Oasis of the Seas.
When the cruise got back to PortMiami on Sunday morning, U.S. Customs and Border Protection was waiting for her, where they found four stolen credit cards in her wallet.
She now faces eight counts of grand theft, eight counts of fraudulent use of a credit card, and four counts of unlawful possession of a stolen credit card.
