May 12, 2021 - From today it is possible to make cabin bookings on Norwegian Prima, the newest NCL ship. According to the current plans, the new flagship will start its service in the summer of 2022. Norwegian Cruise Line is celebrating the ship as another milestone in the history of the shipping company.
A common phrase is "if you rest, you rust". We feel reminded of this, still under the impression of the corona pandemic, when the new Norwegian Prima is presented. The facts: The cruise ship is 295 meters long; the measurement is given as 142.500 GT. The ship is designed for 3.215 passengers with double occupancy. It is the first of six new builds in the Prima class. NCL announces: Norwegian Prima offers more space for each individual passenger, a sophisticated and modern design, a variety of new experiences and exceptional service.

The ship is being built by the Fincantieri shipyard in the Venetian district of Marghera. That alone speaks for high quality. In the suite area, the ship offers 13 categories. “The Haven by Norwegian” is being expanded on the Norwegian Prima to become the shipping company's most exclusive and centrally located suite complex. Private communal areas and elevators separate suite guests from the "common people". "Joe Average" will not starve. NCL promises the shipping company's largest interior, sea view and balcony cabins to date, as well as the largest bathrooms and showers in the standard cabin categories.

The promenade "The Waterfront" has been redesigned and renamed "Ocean Boulevard". The more than 4.000 square meter surrounding outdoor area is on the eighth deck. There is even a sculpture garden and all sorts of other highlights. The culinary area also offers innovations. The new one Indulge Food Hall with eleven stations and several new restaurants bring the world's kitchens on board.
After a series of introductory cruises, Norwegian Prima will fly the flag in Northern Europe from August 2022. The ship will spend the autumn and winter of 2022/2023 in the Caribbean. In the spring and summer of 2023, Norwegian Prima will sail again in Northern Europe.
