He will move over from his role at NCL Holdings.
After Oceania President Bob Binder's decision to step down, NCL Holdings CEO Frank Del Rio said they went to their bench to appoint Howard Sherman to the role of President. Del Rio said "the management team and board are confident Sherman is the right person to succeed Binder as a 'long-standing company and cruise industry veteran who will bring extensive experience, innovative leadership and a fresh perspective to continue to elevate the Oceania Cruises brand, particularly as the line embarks on its next chapter with the upcoming introduction of the next generation Allura-class ships beginning with Vista in April 2023".
Sherman's previous role was as the Executive Vice-President of On-Board Revenue and Destinations for Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, the parent company of Norwegian, Oceania and Regent Seven Seas Cruise line.
Sherman had held that role since September 2016 and earlier served as EVP revenue management from February 2015 until September 2016.
His portfolio of departments includes air/sea, casino operations, on-board revenue, destination services, commercial development, government relations, itinerary planning and land-based construction projects.
Before NCLH acquired Prestige, Sherman held various positions at Prestige from 2003 to 2014 including EVP revenue management and chief revenue officer, SVP revenue management and VP yield and inventory management.
