We are delighted that Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd., a leading global cruise company which operates the Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises brands, has announced its UK charity for 2019 as The Murray Parish Trust
The announcement was made as Sarah Parish visited the cruise lines’ Southampton office on 26 September. Sarah introduced the charity to company executives and staff and following the in-office event she toured Oceania Cruises’ Nautica which was in Southampton for the day.
Harvinder Pereira, Senior HR Manager UK for Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises stated, “We are absolutely thrilled to have chosen The Murray Parish Trust as our charity for 2019. With much of the office-based workforce employed locally, Southampton and the surrounding areas are very important to our brands.”
Sarah Parish added “The Murray Parish Trust are delighted to have been chosen as NCL Holdings Charity of the Year. Being supported by such a prestigious and well loved enterprise adds huge weight to our #2MillionSteps campaign and we feel more confident than ever that with the help of NCL Holdings our hospital will soon have the Paediatric Emergency and trauma department it so badly deserves.”
The cruise lines have also committed to providing auction prizes for “The Odd Ball 2018 – Through the Looking Glass”, our upcoming fundraiser which takes place 17 November. Ultra-luxury, all-inclusive cruise line Regent Seven Seas Cruises is donating an 11-night cruise on board Seven Seas Voyager! The May 2019 sailing takes in the best of the Mediterranean and includes speciality dining, premium drinks, WiFi, gratuities and, uniquely to Regent, unlimited complimentary shore excursions in every port. Norwegian Cruise Line, known as the innovator in cruising, is offering a ship tour and donating a lunch for up to 20 guests in Southampton when one of their ships visits in 2019. Oceania Cruises, the world’s leading culinary- and destination-focused cruise line is also providing 20 places for lucky auction winners to explore a ship in Southampton for the day, where they will enjoy a taste of the luxurious accommodation, delectable restaurants and salubrious bars, before enjoying a gourmet, six-course lunch with wine.
