Here is what the fund said:

“Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NCLH) is a diversified operator of leading global cruise lines spanning market segments from contemporary to luxury under the Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceanic Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises brands. These brands operate a combined 28 ships. Norwegian was eliminated from the portfolio, as we no longer believe it meets our definition of an Exceptional Growth Company, as discussed in our first quarter letter. There are still many unknowns as to when we will see a fully normalized operating environment with a high degree of confidence.”
