Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), the global innovator in cruise travel, breaks the mould with the launch of the first ship in its ground-breaking new Prima Class — the line’s first new class of ships in nearly 10 years.

Norwegian Prima is the first of six ships to be delivered through 2027. A ship full of firsts – from the first three-level racetrack at sea to the brand’s first upmarket open-air food hall – Norwegian Prima also boasts the most outdoor deck space of any new ship in her competitive set.

With capacity for 3,100 guests at double occupancy, her exhilarating itineraries and ground-breaking onboard experiences, such as show-stopping entertainment, global culinary experiences and indulgent relaxation, redefine what’s possible at sea.

As the first major cruise ship to be christened in Iceland, Norwegian Prima embarks on her inaugural voyage on 27 August from the Icelandic capital of Reykjavik, with world-class superstar Katy Perry serving as Godmother.

Discover why Norwegian Prima is hitting all the right notes for Asian travellers and has become NCL’s most in-demand ship yet.


Norwegian Prima in the Norwegian Fjords

It’s time to encourage clients to tick off their bucket-list. Iconic itineraries in Northern Europe aboard Norwegian Prima will showcase the ethereal beauty of Iceland – land of fire of ice – and the dramatic fjords of Norway, with departures from London (Southampton), UK; Copenhagen, Denmark; Amsterdam, The Netherlands or Reykjavik, Iceland.

Sailing in 2022 and 2023, each voyage will immerse travellers in a world of rich culture, vast natural beauty and cosmopolitan cities.


Infinity Beach on Ocean Boulevard

Norwegian Prima boasts the largest outdoor deck space of any comparable new ship, allowing guests to feel more connected with the great outdoors and the sea than ever before.

Travellers can take a stroll around the expansive Ocean Boulevard and discover a range of unique spaces, including The Concourse, an outdoor sculpture garden that features an art wall designed by famed artist David Harber and six installations designed by Alexander Krivosheiw. The seven sculptures, valued at over USD$2 million, offer stunning effects that change as the sun sets – the ultimate selfie-spot.

Infinity Beach features two infinity pools, one located on each side of the ship to take in the vastness of the ocean while soaking in the open air, while two Oceanwalk glass bridges allow guests to feel as if they are walking on air over the water.


Onda by Scarpetta

Featuring nine brand-new dining and beverage concepts, from sushi to succulent steaks, fine French fare and traditional Italian, Norwegian Prima is elevating dining at sea.

Indulge Food Hall is the line’s first ever open-air gourmet food hall, where travellers can take their tastebuds on a global tour with 11 different casual dining options to choose from. Think authentic Indian, a tapas food truck, a seaside rotisserie and delectable desserts.

Also making its debut on Norwegian Prima is speciality restaurant Palomar, where guests can enjoy a taste of high-end Mediterranean cuisine, featuring mouth-watering dishes made with simple yet sophisticated ingredients. Meanwhile returning favourites include Onda by Scarpetta, showcasing rich and bold Italian flavours, as well as NCL’s signature steakhouse, Cagneys.

And after a long day of adventure, Norwegian Prima serves up sustainably focused libations at Metropolitan Bar. Sip and savour the bar’s signature cocktail, the Primadonna, crafted using surplus banana peels and Flor De Cana rum produced with 100% renewable energy. NCL’s first sustainably-focused bar boasts zero-waste cocktails, sustainably sourced spirits and over 20 biodynamic wines produced using organic farming methods.


With a myriad of thrilling activities, Norwegian Prima promises fun for the young and young-at-heart. Adrenaline junkies will love Prima Speedway, the first three-level go-kart race track at sea, featuring 14 nail-biting turns and allowing 15 drivers to race at speeds of more than 50km/h.

But for the ultimate rush, guests can take their pick of plunging 10-storey slides – The Drop, hailed as the “world’s first free-fall dry slide” and The Rush, a duelling duo of slides for those with a competitive streak.

Go high-tech at The Galaxy Pavillion, a virtual wonderland and indoor gaming complex offering guests 14 different attractions. The first-at-sea TopGolf Swing Suite is powered by Full Swing golf simulator technology used by PGA Tour pros, allowing guests to join the big leagues with world-renowned golf courses and multiplayer games.

If you are looking to beat the heat, look no further than Norwegian Prima’s Aqua Park or Main Pool to have a splashing good time. Keep an eye out for NCL’s first Tidal Wave water slide, where guests can ride an innertube with gushing waves.

When it’s time to get away, Vibe Beach Club is the place to be, serving up hip and healthy cocktails in an adults-only oasis that features two infinity hot tubs.


Mandara Spa

Get set for an indulgent pampering experience at the Mandara Spa. With eight thermal spa offerings available, Norwegian Prima boasts the first-ever charcoal sauna on a cruise ship. Inspired by Japanese and Korean wellness practices, the sauna utilises a rejuvenating heat system with a charcoal layer to effectively boost circulation, metabolism, toxin removal and treat muscle tension.
