Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings has created a new division to host full-ship charter events.

The new brand, Experiences at Sea, combines Norwegian Cruise Line subsidiary Sixthman Festivals at Sea with NCLH's charters, meeting and incentives department.

The new organisation will serve NCLH's corporate, incentive and affinity clients across its three brands – NCL, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

NCLH said the new division will put on 13 back-to-back full-ship charter events this winter into early spring, making it the longest string of full-ship charters in the company's history on the Norwegian Pearl. The charters will collectively stretch 66 nights.

Among the specialty cruises from Jan. 20 to March 27 are a focus on wrestling with "Chris Jericho's Rock N Wrestling Rager at Sea" and "Nursecon at Sea," offering nurses accredited continuing education courses.

Others will be centered around comedic internet influencers, the LGTBQIA+ community and various music genres including rock, Americana, country, pop, electronic dance and blues. Voyages will sail from Miami and call at various Caribbean islands, including NCL's Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas and Harvest Caye in Belize.

The new division, in partnership with Infinity Sports and Events, will also host vacation packages of one to 10 nights for Rugby World Cup 2023 games between Sept. 8 and Oct. 16 on the Norwegian Epic that can include tickets to select games in Marseille, Nice, Bordeaux and Nantes, France.

Sixthman Festivals at Sea has operated for 21 years, producing more than 160 charters.
