If You Invested $1,000 in Norwegian Cruise Line’s IPO, This Is How Much Money You’d Have Now

Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NYSE: NCLH) has been hammered this year by the coronavirus pandemic, with all 28 of its ships forced to remain in port. Its stock has not been able to tread water and is down more than 72% year to date, making for some rough sailing for investors.

But I’ve gotten the sense that some of the time that would have been spent on the road or at events and conferences since March has instead been given over to reflection.

Last year, we had seven contributions to our Forum section, where readers express opinions on industry topics. This year, we’ve published 25 Forums, with contributors speculating about what the future will bring.

The killing of George Floyd and the rising prominence of the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020 has added an urgent issue to the mix as we ponder a regenerated travel industry. The words “restart,” “resumption” and “recovery” are frequently used as we look forward, but taking those 25 Forums in aggregate,

Visiting the Tina Turner museum in Brownsville, Tenn., which I had no idea was there. I was going to Dollywood and Graceland, and it’s in-between. It’s kind of pitiful and in a little industrial park, not real grand, I promise you. It has her one-room schoolhouse from Nutbush, Tenn., which is nearby, a couple of her old costumes and no mention of Ike Turner at all. The two lovely women working there reminded me of people in the Liberace Museum, kind of like cult-member loyalists. They were so happy someone came in.

(Adds outlook, comments)

BANGKOK, Sept 30 (Reuters) – Thailand is expected to have 50,000 foreign tourists in the fourth quarter of 2020, down 99.5% from a year earlier, an industry body said on Wednesday, as the country tries to support its battered economy by gradually reopening to visitors.
