The class action, filed in United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, and indexed under 20-cv-21685, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons and entities other than Defendants who purchased or otherwise, acquired the publicly traded securities of Norwegian from February 20, 2020, through March 12, 2020, both dates inclusive (the "Class Period").

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operational, and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company was employing sales tactics of providing customers with unproven and/or blatantly false statements about COVID-19 to entice customers to purchase cruises, thus endangering the lives of both their customers and crew members; and (ii) as a result, Defendants' statements regarding the Company's business and operations were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
