Riley, who was senior vice-president international, was based in Miami. On Thursday NCL denied there would be any job losses involved in a restructuring of its UK operation, but today confirmed that Riley, a UK national, was no longer with the company.
The restructuring saw Christian Boell become vice president and managing director Europe and Nick Wilkinson named as vice president and managing director UK & Ireland and MEA.
NCL said: “In the process Francis Riley, senior vice president international, is leaving Norwegian Cruise Line with immediate effect. We thank Francis for his valued, extensive and long-standing contribution and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
