The cruise line has welcomed a second ship in Prima Class, Norwegian Viva.
Norwegian Viva, the 19th ship in Norwegian Cruise Line’s fleet and the second of six Prima class ships due to enter service by 2028, has been delivered.
The 3,100-passenger vessel will commence its maiden voyage on August 10 2023, and will sail a series of Mediterranean and Greek Isles itineraries ahead of its christening in Miami on November 28. Latin singer, Luis Fonsi, will attend the christening to officially name the ship.
Norwegian Viva will then homeport in San Juan, Puerto Rico for a winter season of Caribbean voyages from December 2023 through March 2024.
NCL president David Herrera said: “Ships as stellar as those of the Prima class are only possible in collaboration with an incredible shipyard like Fincantieri.
“Delivery marks an important milestone for Norwegian Viva, and we are beyond excited to bring this spectacular ship to life as we welcome guests aboard next week.”
The ship can accommodate 3,099 guests with 1,506 ship crew – and measure 294 metres, weighing in at 142,500 gross register tonnage.
Norwegian Viva features The Haven, which consists of an array of suites – including the line’s first three-bedroom suite in 15 years.
There is also a new spa and fitness centre onboard named Mandara Spa, which has multiple saunas, pools and a two-story waterfall.
For entertainment, guests can zoom around a three-level race track, visit the Vibe Beach Club, walk across the line’s first glass bridge and explore the interactive art installations.
And in the evening, guests can watch the likes of Beetlejuice The Musical or choose to dance at Ocean Music Fest.
As for speciality dining, guests can choose from Greek cuisine at Palomar, French dishes at Le Bistro or Teppanyaki at Hasuki.
Complimentary dining includes the main dining room, which boats 270-degree views, The Commodore Room, Surfside Café and Indulge Food Hall.
