Norwegian Cruise Lines unveils new Norwegian Prima

May 15, 2021 Cruise News, Headline News No Comments

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), has opened for sale the first of six ships within its highly anticipated next class of vessels, Prima Class, the Brand’s first new class of ships in nearly 10 years.

With voyages beginning in the northern hemisphere summer of 2022, Norwegian Prima, the first of the six ships, will be 294.1 metres long, 142,500 gross tons, and able to accommodate 3,215 guests at double occupancy.

NCL says the vessel will be a game-changer for them, offering guests exciting itineraries, more wide-open spaces, thoughtful and stunning design, a variety of new experiences as well as NCL’s exceptional service.

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,” adding, “In fact, we doubled down on our brand investment in order to deliver unforgettable guest experiences that go well beyond expectations”, and “Not only will we begin cruising this July, we’re 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.”

Sommer added, “An exemplary representation of our brand evolution, bringing together our ‘Guest First’ philosophy and our spirit of innovation, Norwegian Prima personifies everything our guests love about NCL and raises the bar”, and “This brand-new class of ships is truly designed to put our guests first.”

Built-in Marghera, Italy by Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri NCL says Prima features striking hull artwork designed by Italian graffiti artist Manuel Di Rita, known commonly as “Peeta”, a with for the first time on any NCL vessel, the captivating hull art extends to the forward superstructure of the ship.

NCL says that world-class architects that helped design Norwegian Prima include Italian designer Piero Lissoni and powerhouse architectural firms Rockwell Group, SMC Design, Tillberg Design of Sweden, YSA DESIGN, and Miami-based Studio Dado who conceptualized and composed the aesthetic of various restaurants, staterooms, and public areas onboard.

Sommer said, “The name ‘Prima,’ which means “first” in Italian, is a natural fit that ties into our legacy of firsts in the industry and a fitting tribute to our new Italian shipbuilding partners at Fincantieri,” with Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri saying, “We are very honored to partner with Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) for the development of its next class of ships,” adding, “Norwegian Prima marks the beginning of our collaboration, which will see the delivery of six next-generation vessels that are designed to take guest experiences to a new level focusing on elevated, spacious and thoughtful design”, and “As we emerge from this global crisis, this announcement marks a strong sign of hope for the cruise sector and is a testament to Fincantieri’s global leadership role in the industry.”
