BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – The Norwegian Prima arrived at Port Canaveral sporting an all-blue artwork design, distinctively different from any other Norwegian Cruise Line vessel, Port Canaveral said in a statement on Tuesday.
Norwegian Prima is the first of six vessels from Norwegian Cruise Line’s Prima Class, the Brand’s first new class of ships in nearly 10 years.
Launched in August 2022, Norwegian Prima is the industry’s most spacious new cruise ship with the most outdoor deck space and expansive accommodations of any new build.
Built in Marghera, Italy by world-renowned Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri, Norwegian Prima is 965 feet long (294 meters long), 143,535 gross tons and able to accommodate 3,100 guests at double occupancy. The vessel has 20 decks, featuring nearly 1,600 staterooms, 18 dining venues and 17 bars and lounges.
The ship features striking hull artwork created by Italian graffiti artist Manuel Di Rita, known commonly as “Peeta,” and was designed by world-class design and architectural teams including 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 on board.
Norwegian Prima offers guests exciting itineraries, the highest staffing levels and space ratio of any new cruise ship in the contemporary or premium cruise category, and Brand-first experiences with Ocean Boulevard, Indulge Food Hall, The Concourse, Infinity Beach, Oceanwalk and the Penrose Atrium.
Norwegian Prima also features multiple first-at-sea innovations including a three-story transformational theater-nightclub, the Prima Theater & Club; its three-level racetrack with the Prima Speedway; the fastest slides at sea, The Drop and Rush; and the cruise industry’s first sustainable cocktail bar with The Metropolitan Bar.
