NCL: Norwegian Prima Launch
Norwegian Prima was launched at the Marghera shipyard and is the first of six new-generation cruise ships in Norwegian Cruise Line’s Prima class.
At some 142,500 gross tons, nearly 300 meters in length and with a capacity to accommodate 3,215 passengers, Norwegian Prima and her sister ships will form the backbone of NCL’s future fleet. Deliveries of the new ships are scheduled between 2022 and 2027.
The class is based on a prototype project developed by Fincantieri that enhances the consolidated characteristics of freedom and flexibility of NCL with an innovative product configuration, capable of further enriching the experience offered to passengers. In addition, particular attention has been paid to energy efficiency, with the dual aim of limiting consumption during operation and minimizing environmental impact, in line with the most recent regulations on the issue.
In addition to NCL, part of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd., are the brands Regent Seven Seas Cruises, for which Fincantieri delivered the extra-luxurious ships Seven Seas Explorer in 2016 and Seven Seas Splendor in 2020, and Oceania Cruises, in which the group’s portfolio has two new-generation ships, worth a total of more than one billion euros, that will launch the Allura class.
