“After bringing our entire fleet back into service we have reached the time where we transition from operating in a ‘relaunch’ mode to a steadier state of operations,” the cruise line stated in an email to a crew member reported by “As part of this transition, Norwegian Cruise Line is adjusting its shipboard entertainment operations.”

“We regret to inform you that the decision has been made to reduce our Entertainment department manning across all vessels and as a result, your scheduled assignment has been cancelled and your services are no longer required.”

According to the report, Norwegian is removing its “Kinky Boots” production from the Norwegian Encore effective January 15.

The news comes on the heels of a recent report claiming that Norwegian plans to reduce cleaning services across its entire fleet of ships in 2023.

Additionally, the cruise line has recently increased gratuities and room service fees. Last month, Norwegian’s parent company Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings laid off 9 percent of its shoreside employees in what it called a “broad and ongoing effort to improve operating efficiencies.”
