NCLH installs LIFE CYCLE SYSTEM by DL SERVICES equipment across all 22 ships in fleet

6th of March 2016

(Miami Florida – March 05th, 2016) – Life Cycle System (LCS) by DL Services, the
industry’s leading catering equipment management system, has been chosen by
Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NCLH) to provide their web-based services to the 22
ships in the NCLH fleet under the company’s three brands: Norwegian Cruise Line,
Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
DL Services LCS is a web-access solution that helps to manage catering equipment
replacement, spare parts and maintenance. The system provides a new visual
approach to coordinating operations on board. LCS offers strong visual tools, such as
deck plans and equipment documentation, and improves both equipment-replacement
planning and routine decision-making.
The company first provided services to the Oceania Cruises fleet beginning in 2010.
After several years, they expanded to Regent Seven Seas Cruises. Today, Robin
Lindsay, Executive Vice President, Vessel Operations for Norwegian Cruise Line
Holdings, Ltd. has decided to implement the Life Cycle System on board Norwegian
Cruise Line’s fourteen vessels.
“The Life Cycle System is a great value for our company, providing fast, reliable
equipment,” says Lindsay.
Lindsay also notes that the cruise line selected LCS because of the easy-to-use tools
that the system offers. “LCS users can request replacement equipment by using
exploded views and detailed parts lists, that allows us to place orders more quickly
and budget accordingly for the future, something that was a challenge before using
LCS” says Robin Lindsay.
Daniel Laine, President of DL SERVICES, is already working on a new project to add
value to LCS: “We already have a very good relationship with NCLH and we want to
expand our services to offer even more value, building on our experience and their
trust” says Daniel Laine.
Founded in 2005, DL SERVICES works like consultant for catering architecture with
cruise operators during the newbuilding process and/or modernization to design areas
such as galleys, bars and buffet lines. The company is also uniquely positioned in the
industry to provide operators added value by offering a stock of $500,000 of available
spare parts in their Miami warehouse, to supply needed spare parts more quickly and
at a lower cost.
