Record-breaking Prima Class ship to sail from the PortMiami with two inaugural voyages to the Caribbean

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), the innovator in global cruise travel, is proud to announce the arrival of the all-new Norwegian Prima to its hometown of Miami, where it will embark on two inaugural voyages from Nov. 11-14, 2022 and Nov. 14-17, 2022, calling to Great Stirrup Cay, NCL’s private island in the Bahamas. 

Following a spectacular inaugural journey, which began with a history-making christening event in Reykjavik, Iceland in August and continued with inaugural sailings from New York, and most recently Galveston, Texas, Norwegian Prima arrived today to NCL’s cruise terminal at Port Miami, the first cruise terminal in the world to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold New Construction v4.0 certification.  Built to elevate the guest experience and propel the brand forward with upgraded designs and offerings, N. Prima features the Prima Speedway, the world’s only and largest three-level racetrack at sea; the Brand’s first upscale Food Hall, Indulge; and The Metropolitan Bar, the cruise industry’s first sustainable cocktail bar featuring responsibly crafted zero-waste cocktails prepared with surplus ingredients. For the first time on Nov. 13, 2022, guests will also join Norwegian Prima’s debut tour as she calls to Great Stirrup Cay, the Company’s 270-acre private island featuring idyllic white-sand beaches, an exhilarating zipline running across the island, and NCL’s exclusive retreat, Silver Cove.   

“There’s nothing like welcoming Norwegian Prima to Miami,” said Norwegian Cruise Line President and Chief Executive Officer Harry Sommer. “I’ve had the pleasure of seeing her come to life at the Fincantieri shipyard in Venice, Italy as well as launching her in style in Iceland. Now, we are showcasing her to our community here in Miami. It’s a dream come true!”

Norwegian Prima is the first of six ships in the Brand’s groundbreaking Prima Class. At 965 feet (294 meters long) and more than 143,535 tons with capacity for 3,100 guests at double occupancy, Norwegian Prima offers the highest staffing levels and space ratio of any contemporary or premium cruise ship. She also boasts the largest variety of suite categories available at sea as well as a redefined The Haven by Norwegian, NCL’s ultra-premium keycard only access ship-within-a-ship concept. Her variety of recreational activities including the fastest slides at sea – The Rush and The Drop – and Prima Speedway, provide guests with adrenaline-pumping moments. Spaces like Ocean Boulevard, the 44,000 square foot outdoor walkway which wraps around the entire ship; The Concourse, which boasts a multi-million dollar outdoor sculpture garden; and expansive pool decks and infinity style pools at Infinity Beach, offer guests a chance to sit back and relax.
