We are thrilled to officially welcome Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises to our family. Today marks an exciting new chapter and we couldn't be more excited about what lies ahead. As one company with three distinct brands, we now offer a portfolio of cruise experiences that appeal to guests at every stage of their life cycle.
You can be assured that the high level of service Norwegian provides to the travel agent community through our industry-leading Partners First initiative will continue to be a priority. As we've previously communicated, the sales team for Norwegian will continue to operate independently, reporting directly to me. We continue to move forward with a "business as usual" mindset and your day-to-day contacts will remain. As you know, our team is a highly-driven, energetic group with a singular purpose: to support your efforts in achieving your sales goals and accelerating growth. As one of our most valuable business partners, we recognize that to help you continue to increase sales and grow our mutual businesses, it's important that we maintain a top-notch Sales organization.
As with any new journey, we will encounter some changes along the way and so it is with sadness that I share with you that Camille Olivere, Senior Vice President of Sales for the Americas, will be leaving Norwegian Cruise Line. Since she joined the team in 2009, Camille was instrumental in developing several key areas of the business, including building our business across our North American travel partners and strengthening our relationships with all of our key partners during a period of unprecedented growth. Her efforts helped us earn numerous sales and industry awards and she played an integral role in establishing Norwegian as a leader in our segment of the cruise market. The entire Norwegian Cruise Line family deeply appreciates the role Camille has played in our company's unparalleled success over the years and we thank her for her many contributions during her time as a Norwegian.
Looking ahead, we have many great things to come in 2015 including the launch of our largest and most exciting ship yet, Norwegian Escape, debuting in October. Stay tuned for more details very soon on her innovative dining, entertainment and recreational activities. We know your clients will be very intrigued by this spectacular new ship and we can't wait to share the news with you.
Once again, we thank you for your continued support. The future is very bright for us all and we look forward to continuing on this exciting journey with you.
