Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) took delivery of its newest ship, Norwegian Prima, in Marghera, Venice at the renowned Fincantieri shipyard last week.


The highly anticipated milestone marks the arrival of the first ship in NCL’s Prima Class that will see six new ships delivered through 2027.


At 965 feet/294 meters long, 142,500 gross tons and with capacity for 3,100 guests, Norwegian Prima is designed to put guests first.


The vessel features wide-open spaces, thoughtful and stunning design, and a variety of brand and industry-firsts, laying claim as the most spacious new cruise ship in the contemporary category and offering the most outdoor deck space and expansive accommodations of any new build.


The vessel’s variety of elevated experiences and epicurean delights include the brand’s first upscale open-air food hall, Indulge Food Hall; the first and largest three-level racetrack at sea, the Prima Speedway; and The Drop, the world’s first freefall dry slide offering a 10-story plunge experience that reaches more G-forces than an accelerating F1 race car.


After setting sail in Europe, Norwegian Prima will sail Bermuda from Oct. 10, 2022; Caribbean itineraries from Oct. 15, 2022; and Western Caribbean voyages from Dec. 11, 2022, to March 19, 2023, before returning to Bermuda from March 28 to May 7, 2023.
