Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. (NCLH) has migrated its shoreside technology infrastructure to Amazon Web Services in a process which took 15 months to complete and involved moving more than 100 applications, thousands of virtual and physical servers, data center environments, and peripheral server rooms to the cloud.

"We are thrilled to be at the forefront of cloud adoption in the cruise industry,” said Georgios Mortakis, NCLH chief information officer and chief information security officer, who led the cloud migration process alongside Humberto Pombo, senior director of Infrastructure at NCLH.

"Our migration of on-premises workloads to AWS has resulted in significant improvements in performance. This allows us to accelerate innovation and create amazing experiences for our employees, guests, and travel partners. As an example, during our largest traffic event ever for our reservations systems in November 2023, we handled record volumes without any known performance or availability issues."
