Norwegian Cruise Line introduces its new Prima Class ships, featuring an impressive series of firsts not only for the brand but for the entire cruise industry.
“The name ‘Prima’, which means ‘first’ in Italian, fits naturally with our legacy of industry firsts…Norway Prima embodies everything our guests love about NCL and raises the bar,” said President and NCL CEO Harry Sommer.
The Prima class is expected to make its debut this August in Reykjavik, where Norway’s Prima, the first of six ships in NCL’s new class of ships, will have a christening ceremony, with pop icon Katy Perry as godmother of the boat.
With the Norwegian Prima offering the largest amount of staff and space ratio of all new cruise ships in the premium and contemporary cruise category, returning passengers have so many new things to look forward to, while first-time travelers have yet to discover a new world of luxury and uniqueness.
The Haven by Norwegian on the Prima Class ships was built to offer the brand’s most exclusive centralized all-suite resort. With eight decks of suites and public areas on Norwegian Prima, the ship-within-a-ship concept provides guests with private comforts, exclusive services, and the most luxurious accommodations on board.
NCL has reinvented the industry-leading The Waterfront by doubling the space and adding a greater variety of experiences and dining options than ever before with the introduction of Ocean Boulevard. Located on Norwegian Prima’s eighth deck, the 4,000-square-meter Ocean Boulevard wraps around the entire deck, allowing guests to walk the entire ship and experience incredible ocean views while having the option to participate in a number of outdoor activities. Outstanding outdoors.
As the only cruise line to offer go-karting at sea, NCL will up the ante on Norway’s Prima, offering the world’s first largest three-tier race circuit with Prima Speedway, a long flat track over a quarter of a mile long. , where 15 pilots can race in the open sea at the same time, reaching speeds of more than 50 km/h.
