(12:25 p.m. EST) -- In partnership with Alaska native-owned Huna Totem Corporation, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. -- which owns Norwegian Cruise Line, Regent Seven Seas Cruises and Oceania Cruises -- will construct a new cruise pier at Icy Strait Point.

The port, located in Hoonah in Alaska's Inside Passage, is Huna Totem's purpose-built destination for cruisers, featuring various restaurants, retail stores and shore excursion options like whale watching and fishing, as well as one of the world's longest ziplines.

"We are thrilled to partner with the Huna Totem Corporation to construct a new pier at Icy Strait Point, which will strengthen our presence in the wildly popular Alaska market and provide our guests with a best-in-class experience as they explore the natural beauty and exciting shore excursions of this unique destination," said Howard Sherman, executive vice president of onboard revenue and destination development of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.

As a result of the partnership, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings' brands will have preferential docking privileges at Icy Strait Point.

Slated for completion in time for the 2020 Alaska cruise season, the new pier will be large enough to accommodate Norwegian Cruise Line's Breakaway Plus class of ships, each of which carries more than 4,000 passengers.
