2016 Annual Report for Norwegian Cruiseline Holdings - 24

Fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates could adversely affect our financial results.
We earn revenues, pay expenses, purchase and own assets and incur liabilities in currencies other than the U.S. dollar; most significantly a portion of our
revenue and expenses are denominated in foreign currencies, particularly British pound, Canadian dollar, euro and Australian dollar. Because our
consolidated financial statements are presented in U.S. dollars, we must translate revenues and expenses, as well as assets and liabilities, into U.S.
dollars at exchange rates in effect during or at the end of each reporting period. The strengthening of the U.S. dollar against our other major currencies
may adversely affect our U.S. dollar financial results and will reduce the U.S. dollar amount received upon conversion of these currencies into U.S.
dollars.
We have historically and may in the future enter into ship construction contracts denominated in euros or other foreign currencies. While we have
entered into foreign currency derivatives to manage a portion of the currency risk associated with such contracts, we are exposed to fluctuations in the
euro exchange rate for the portions of the ship construction contracts that have not been hedged. Additionally, if the shipyard is unable to perform under
the related ship construction contract, any foreign currency hedges that were entered into to manage the currency risk would need to be terminated.
Overcapacity in key markets or globally could adversely affect our operating results.
We continue to expand our fleet through our newbuild program and may add up to ten additional ships to our fleet through 2027. Our competitors have
also announced similar expansions to their fleets. These increases in capacity in the cruise industry globally and potential overcapacity in certain key
markets may cause us to lower pricing, which would reduce profitability and adversely affect our results of operations.
Our inability to recruit or retain qualified personnel or the loss of key personnel may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition
and results of operations.
Our success is dependent upon our personnel and our ability to recruit and retain high quality employees. We must continue to recruit, retain and
motivate management and other employees in order to maintain our current business and support our projected growth. We need to hire and train a
considerable number of qualified crew members to staff the ships that will be joining our fleet in the coming years. This may require significant efforts
on the part of our management team, and our inability to hire a sufficient number of qualified crew members would adversely affect our business.
Our executive officers and other members of senior management have substantial experience and expertise in our business and have made significant
contributions to our growth and success. The unexpected loss of services of one or more of these individuals could materially adversely affect us.
We rely on external distribution channels for passenger bookings, and major changes in the availability of external distribution channels could
undermine our customer base.
The majority of our guests book their cruises through independent travel agents, wholesalers and tour operators. In the event that these distribution
channels are adversely impacted by an economic downturn, or by other factors, this could reduce the distribution channels available for us to market and
sell our cruises and we could be forced to increase the use of alternative distribution channels we are not accustomed to. If this were to occur, it could
have an adverse impact on our financial condition and results of operations.
Additionally, independent travel agents, wholesalers and tour operators generally sell and market our cruises on a non-exclusive basis. Although we
offer commissions and other incentives to them for booking our cruises, there can be no guarantee that our competitors will not offer higher
commissions and incentives in the future. Travel agents may face increasing pressure from our competitors, particularly in the North American market,
to sell and market our competitors' cruises exclusively. If such exclusive arrangements were introduced, there can be no assurances that we will be able
to find alternative distribution channels to ensure that our customer base would not be affected.
We rely on third parties to provide hotel management services for certain ships and certain other services, and we are exposed to risks facing such
providers. In certain circumstances, we may not be able to replace such third parties or we may be forced to replace them at an increased cost to us.
We rely on external third parties to provide hotel management services for certain ships and certain other services that are vital to our business. If these
service providers suffer financial hardship or are otherwise unable to continue providing such services, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to
replace such service providers in a timely manner, which may cause an interruption in our operations. To the extent that we are able to replace such
service providers, we may be forced to pay an increased cost for equivalent services. Both the interruption of operations and the replacement of the
third-party service providers at an increased cost could adversely impact our financial condition and results of operations.
Delays in our shipbuilding program and ship repairs, maintenance and refurbishments could adversely affect our results of operations and financial
condition.
The new construction, refurbishment, repair and maintenance of our cruise ships are complex processes and involve risks similar to those encountered in
other large and sophisticated equipment construction, refurbishment and repair projects. Our ships are subject to the risk of mechanical failure or
accident, which we have occasionally experienced and have had to repair. If there is a mechanical failure or accident in the future, we may be unable to
procure spare parts when needed or make repairs without incurring material expense or suspension of service, especially if a problem affects certain
specialized maritime equipment, such as the radar, a pod propulsion unit, the electrical/power management system, the steering gear or the gyro system.
