|Goodwill and Intangible Assets Disclosure [Abstract]|
4. Intangible Assets
We evaluate goodwill and trade names for impairment annually or more frequently when an event occurs or circumstances change that indicates the carrying value of a reporting unit may not be recoverable. In March 2020, the Company announced a voluntary suspension of all cruise voyages for its three brands, which has subsequently been extended through December 31, 2020. Due to the temporary suspension of operations and decline in our stock price, we performed interim goodwill and trade name impairment tests as of March 31, 2020. We refer you to Note 9 – “Fair Value Measurements and Derivatives” for information on our valuation assumptions.
The changes in the carrying amount of goodwill for each reporting unit for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 are as follows (in thousands):
We also impaired our trade names for Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises by $170.0 million and $147.0 million, respectively. Following these impairments, the carrying value of our trade names was $500.5 million.
