Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has taken delivery
of Norwegian Prima, the first of six Prima Class ships to be delivered through 2027.
At 294 metres long, 142,500 gross tons and a
capacity for 3,300 guests, Norwegian Prima features wide-open spaces and a variety of brand and industry-first
Facilities include the brand’s
first upscale open-air food hall; the largest
and first three-level racetrack at sea; as
well as The Drop, the world’s first free-fall dry slide offering a
10-storey plunge experience that reaches more G-forces than an
accelerating F1 race car.
Other onboard standouts include the 4,000+ sqm Ocean
Boulevard, which wraps around the entire deck; Infinity Beach
which boasts two
infinity pools positioned close to water level to take
in the vastness of the ocean with uninterrupted views; and Oceanwalk, where two glass bridges make guests feel as though they
are walking on air over the water.
Norwegian Prima also boasts The Concourse, an outdoor
sculpture garden with six installations created by
international metal artist Alexander Krivosheiw, and an art wall
designed by David Harber.
Harry Sommer, President and CEO of Norwegian
Cruise Line, said, “Today we usher in a thrilling new era in
cruising as we celebrate the delivery of Norwegian Prima, the
long-anticipated first ship in our extraordinary new Prima Class.

our commitment to deliver unforgettable experiences that exceed
expectations … We cannot wait to welcome our
guests on board.”
