About this Project

Voted Europe’s leading cruise line ten years in a row by the World Travel Awards, it’s easy to see why its customers choose Norwegian Cruise Lines, time and time again. Discovering the history and exploring the culture of enviable destinations, combined with; luxurious accommodation, spectacular entertainment and unrivalled onboard dining facilities, simply equates to the perfect cruising holiday.
Established in 1996, Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL) is the parent company of Prestige Cruises, American Cruise Lines and Regency Seven Seas.

Customer Requirements

In order to centralise its operations, increase synergies and nurture working relationships, NCL required an office space which would allow the company to have all its brands under the same roof. In a bold move, the company relocated its 600-strong team to its new regional office in the heart of Southampton, strongly positioning itself amongst its competitors and confirming the city’s position as the leading cruise port in Northern Europe.
The client appointed Spaceway to create an open and flowing office space which would allow for clear internal communication, enabling the client to easily adapt as each brand develops and grows.
NCL had a clear vision and specific brief in mind: To create the illusion of being onboard one of its award-winning ships.

Spaceway collaborated exceptionally closely with the client and its chosen design team from start to finish, ensuring the internal nautical theme which the client requested, became a reality. What really stood out for the client was Spaceway’s attention to detail and its proactive design suggestions, from the trophy cabinets which house model cruise liners, down to the boat-shaped tables and meeting pods.
Spaceway installed a feature glass partitioning system, manufactured with stainless and frameless glass to ensure no joints were visible and complement’s the sleek appearance of the office. To complete the look, special transfers were designed and installed, adding to the uniqueness of the office and counteracting the sterile effect which vast amounts of glass can often create.
The office comprises of a combination of executive suites, meeting rooms, conference facilities, printing areas and 600 open plan desks. The conference centre can accommodate up to 30 people and has a partitioning door to allow the space to be sectioned into two smaller areas.

Our Solution

The End Result

NCL now has an enviable regional office providing the ability for true collaboration amongst its’ team members and all housed within a nautically designed space. Spaceway completed the stunning transformation on time and to budget, impressing the client with its proactive and design-led approach to this project. Speaking about the completed project, Spaceway’s Director, Dominic O’Brien, said: “The office space is a true reflection of NCL’s brand and its company’s ethos, reflecting and radiating quality and prestige in every element of the design and detail. We are delighted with the end result and the collaboration between Spaceway, the client and designer made this project a real success.”

Spaceway worked with us to create the perfect environment for our staff. The completed project was fantastic and utilised the space to provide  practical, modern and attractive working surroundings.


The project was challenging to say the least with the removal of 280 workstations and fitting of 400 new ones, along with collaboration areas and 400 bespoke lockers over two weekends, but Spaceway managed to complete this along with office refurbishment works on time and to an excellent standard.

It’s no good having just an empty industrial building you need a concept for space, a design, an infrastructure and someone to build it. Designing something like this from scratch with someone who’s willing to invest in your ideas, Spaceway is your perfect partner.
