Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has unveiled Norwegian Prima, the first of six ships within its highly anticipated next class of vessels, Prima Class.
Norwegian Prima will be 965 feet long, 1,42,500 gross tons, and able to accommodate 3,215 guests at double occupancy.
The cruise ship will offer 13 suite categories, the largest three-bedroom suites of any new cruise ship, and the brand’s largest-ever inside, oceanview, and balcony staterooms, including large bathrooms and showers for standard stateroom categories.
The Haven by Norwegian has also been enhanced on Norwegian Prima.
“Spanning eight decks of suites and public areas, the ultra-premium keycard only access ship-within-a-ship concept provides guests with private amenities, dedicated services and the most luxurious accommodations on board. For the first time, the Cruise Line relocated all 107 Haven suites to the aft (the rear of the ship) within close proximity of private elevators exclusively reserved for Haven guests.
“These elevators rise directly into The Haven public areas on decks 16 and 17. NCL evolved The Haven’s design to be more open to the sea than ever before. For the first time, every public area in The Haven offers stunning sea and destination views,” elaborates an official release by the brand.
The Indulge Food Hall on Norwegian Prima will serve diverse menu items from a variety of culinary venues and a mix of indoor and outdoor seating.
Enjoy delicacies from Q Texas Smokehouse, boasting delicious American Southern comfort food and barbecue; and Starbucks. There is Seaside Rotisserie, offering a wide array of rotisserie-cooked dishes; Nudls, an emporium serving noodle dishes from around the world; Tamara, preparing classic Indian dishes and multiple vegetarian food options; The Latin Quarter, serving classic Latin food with a twist; Tapas Food Truck for Spanish-inspired street food; Garden Kitchen, where guest can order customised salads with more than two dozen ingredients to choose from and Just Desserts, featuring classic dessert items.
The site will host three additional dining venues offering both indoor and outdoor seating including Onda By Scarpetta, Los Lobos, and The Local Bar & Grill.
Unwind at Infinity Beach featuring two infinity pools, one located on each side of the ship and close to the ocean surface. La Terraza, an open-air lounge, features a quaint retreat for visitors to catch forward-facing sea views.
Located on deck eight, Ocean Boulevard at 44,000 square feet long, allows guests to walk around the entire ship and experience ocean views while having the choice to enjoy outdoor activities.
Harry Sommer, president and CEO of NCL said, “Despite not having sailed in more than a year, we never stopped working and innovating, we never once pressed pause.”
“In fact, we doubled down on our brand investment in order to deliver unforgettable guest experiences that go well beyond expectations. Not only will we begin cruising this July, we are so proud and so incredibly happy to announce the start of an exciting new chapter as we introduce the Prima Class and the first ship in a line of unrivaled vessels with Norwegian Prima.”
