Norwegian Cruise Line to Build New Pier in Alaska
Earlier today, Norwegian Cruise line Holdings announced that they will be partnering with the Huna Totem Corporations to build another pier in Icy Strait Point, Alaska.
The new pier should be completed by summer of 2020, just in time for the Alaskan cruising season. It will be built to long enough to moor Norwegian’s Breakaway Plus class ships.
“We are thrilled to partner with the Huna Totem Corporation to construct a new pier at Icy Strait Point which will strengthen our presence in the wildly popular Alaska market and provide our guests with a best-in-class experience as they explore the natural beauty and exciting shore excursions of this unique destination,” said Howard Sherman, executive vice president of onboard revenue and destination development. “This partnership marks the latest step in our ongoing efforts to promote economic development in the area and make a positive economic impact on the Alaska tourism industry.”
