Norwegian Cruise Line is being lined up for a stock market float.

Weekend reports suggest that a raft of extra advisers have been employed by the company including Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan and HSBC.

These are in addition to UBS, Goldman Sachs and Barclays to work on the planned Nasdaq listing in the US.

The emergence of the additional advisors will fuel speculation that Norwegian is prepared to press ahead, the Sunday Times reported.

The company first registered its intention with the US financial regulator the SEC in 2010.
