Norwegian Cruise Line, the innovator in global cruise travel with a 54-year history, has unveiled exciting new details about its most-anticipated cruise ship, Norwegian Prima. Launching in summer 2022, Norwegian Prima will be 965 feet long, 142,500 gross tons and able to accommodate 3,215 guests at double occupancy. She will offer the largest variety of suite accommodation categories available at sea (13), largest-ever NCL inside, ocean-view and balcony staterooms as well as the largest three-bedroom suites of any new vessel. Norwegian Prima will also offer the most outdoor deck space featuring more pool deck space than any other ship in NCL's fleet plus multiple infinity pools and vast outdoor walkways. All of these features, together with the highest staffing levels and space ratio in the contemporary and premium cruise categories, will deliver an unrivalled guest experience.

Going a step further, NCL re-imagined its industry pioneering Waterfront by doubling the space and adding a greater variety of things to do as well as more dining options than ever before by introducing the Ocean Boulevard. Located on deck eight, Ocean Boulevard is 44,000 square ft. in size, wraps around the entire deck, and allows guests to walk the perimeter of the entire ship enjoying amazing ocean views and taking part in a wide range of exceptional outdoor activities.

As the only cruise line to offer go-karts at sea, NCL has upped the ante by 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 (1,378 feet/ 420 meters) and 22 percent larger than the current racetrack on Norwegian Encore, the speedway will now go around and through the funnel of the ship and boasts 14 nail-biting turns where 15 drivers can simultaneously race on the open ocean, reaching speeds of more than 30 mph (50 kph). And after completing their ultimate thrill ride, racers can unwind at the new Prima Speedway Bar located beneath the racetrack.

Anyone looking for the most extreme adrenaline rush at sea will rush to The Drop, the world's first free-fall dry slide where you can experience a 10-story plunge reaching the highest G-forces of any cruise line; even more Gs than an accelerating F1 race car! This edge-of-your-seat experience takes a competitive turn with The Rush, featuring dueling dry slides where guests can race each other for the ultimate in bragging rights.

And making its splashing first appearance as part of the ship's Aqua Park and Main Pool area, will be the brand's first Tidal Wave waterslide featuring gushing surfs where you can ride an inner-tube to catch the perfect wave.

There is also the Vibe Beach Club, NCL’s adult-only area providing enhanced experiences including a dedicated bar and two infinity hot tubs where guests can enjoy the ocean’s horizon at leisure while sipping a beverage of their choice.

As part of the multifaceted experiences offered on Ocean Boulevard, NCL introduced its first-ever upscale open-air marketplace with Indulge Food Hall offering vacationers diverse menu items from a variety of culinary locales as well as a mix of indoor and outdoor seating options. There are 11 venues showcasing captivating colours and aromas including culinary favourites such as Coco’s, serving artisan sweet treats; Q Texas Smokehouse, boasting delicious American Southern comfort food and barbecue; and Starbucks. Aboard the Prima, Indulge will unveil Seaside Rotisserie, offering a wide array of rotisserie-cooked dishes; Nudls, an emporium serving noodle dishes from around the world; Tamara, preparing classic Indian dishes and multiple vegetarian options; The Latin Quarter, serving classic Latin food with a twist; Tapas Food Truck, cooking elevated Spanish-inspired street food; Garden Kitchen, where guests can order customized salads with more than two dozen ingredients to choose from; Just Desserts, featuring classic dessert items such as pies and cakes and Just Ice Cream with its all time favourite ice cream flavours and other over-the-top decadent creations.

In the evening, the Tony Award® nominated musical “Summer: The Donna Summer Musical” will entertain Prima's guests as the interactive headlining act. Presenting the story of Donna Summer’s meteoric rise from young starlet to the Queen of Disco and showcasing a score of more than 20 of her mega hits such as the “Bad Girls”, “Last Dance”, and “Hot Stuff” to name just a few. During this 75-minute immersive production, the theatre itself transforms into a full disco and guests can become a part of the show and dance to Summer’s all-time medleys, a first at sea. The three-story venue features a customizable seating layout and awe-inspiring moving LED screen that lowers from the ceiling and is nearly half the size of the venue itself.

Norwegian Prima will push the boundaries of guest entertainment as it rolls out its interactive LIVE on NCL game show experiences that allow the audience to be part of the show and have an opportunity to win incredible grand prizes. These interactive productions take the Prima Theatre and Nightclub and transforms it into a larger-than-life set where you can be a participant in some of the most legendary game shows including classics such as: The Price is Right LIVE on NCL; Supermarket Sweep LIVE on NCL; Press Your Luck LIVE on NCL and Beat the Clock LIVE on NCL.
