Norwegian Cruise Line Introduces New ‘Prima Class’ Ships
Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) is introducing its new Prima Class vessels, which feature an impressive series of firsts, not only for the brand but also for the whole cruise industry.
“The name ‘Prima’, which means ‘first’ in Italian, is a natural fit that ties into our legacy of firsts in the industry… Norwegian Prima personifies everything our guests love about NCL and raises the bar,” said NCL President and CEO Harry Sommer.
The Prima Class is expected to debut this August at Reykjavík, where Norwegian Prima, the first of six ships within NCL’s new class of vessels, will have its christening ceremony, with pop icon Katy Perry as the ship’s godmother.
As Norwegian Prima offers the highest staffing levels and space ratio of any new cruise ship in the contemporary and premium cruise category, returning cruisers have so many new things to wait for, while first timers are about to discover a new world of luxury and unique experiences:
The Elevated Haven
The Haven by Norwegian on the Prima Class vessels has been elevated to offer the brand’s most exclusive and centralized suite complex. Spanning eight decks of suites and public areas on the Norwegian Prima, the ship-within-a-ship concept provides guests with private amenities, dedicated services and the most luxurious accommodations on board.
NCL has reimagined its industry pioneering The Waterfront by doubling the space and adding a greater variety of experiences and dining options than ever before by introducing the Ocean Boulevard. Located on deck eight of the Norwegian Prima, Ocean Boulevard at 4,000 square meters long, wraps around the entire deck, allowing guests to walk around the entire ship and experience amazing ocean views while having the choice to partake in numerous exceptional outdoor activities.
Activities for all guests
As the only Cruise Line to offer go-karts at sea, NCL will up the ante on Norwegian Prima, offering the largest and first ever three-level racetrack with the Prima Speedway, featuring a longer straightaway with a racetrack of more than a quarter mile in length, where 15 drivers can simultaneously race on the open ocean, reaching speeds of more than 50 km/h.
Elevated Epicurean experiences
A number of new dining and beverage venues debut on Norwegian Prima. Created to elevate the guest-sensory experience, Indulge Food Hall offers visitors diverse menu items from a variety of culinary venues as well as a mix of indoor and outdoor seating, with 11 venues including returning guest culinary favorites Coco’s, serving artisan sweet treats; Q Texas Smokehouse, boasting delicious American Southern comfort food and barbecue; and Starbucks.
