The Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri announced the delivery of the NCL-Norwegian Cruise Line's newest liner - Norwegian Prima. Prima is the first of all 6 units from the new PRIMA Class (fka LEONARDO).
The vessel was delivered at Fincantieri's yard in Marghera (Venice).
NCL is a subsidiary of the USA-based NCLH (Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd) which is one of the world's top-5 largest cruise shipping companies.
Along with her sisterships, Prima is expected to form the backbone of the future Norwegian fleet. The design is based on 20 decks, 1646 staterooms, GT-tonnage/volume of 142,500 tons, passenger capacity of 3215 (double occupancy/lower berths), 16 elevators (passenger lifts, including 2 dedicated to The Haven complex). The Haven complex (public areas and all the 107 staterooms) was designed by the Italian interior design company Lissoni & Partners (Piero Lissoni).
NCL Prima's hull artwork was designed by Manuel Di Rita (aka Peeta/Italian graffiti artist).
NCL Prima's christening ceremony is currently scheduled for September 3, 2022, to be held in Amsterdam (Netherlands) right before the Maiden Voyage.
The deliveries of all PRIMA-class units are currently planned for 2022 through 2027 (one vessel per year).
