Norwegian Cruise Line's (NCL) newest ship, Norwegian Prima, has floated out from her drydock at Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy.

“A ship’s float out is always a significant milestone, but this one is particularly special,” NCL CEO Harry Sommer said. “Our 18th ship, Norwegian Prima represents an exciting new chapter for our Brand and the first vessel to be delivered in our groundbreaking new Prima Class.”

“We’ve worked closely with our partners at Fincantieri to deliver a truly remarkable vessel,” Sommer added. “Their passion, skill and craftsmanship has brought to life one of the most stylish and innovative ships to ever set sail. I’m thrilled we’re now one step closer to welcoming our guests onboard in just 12 months’ time.”

The first of six ships in NCL’s highly anticipated Prima Class, the new Norwegian Prima measures 294 metres long, 142,500 gross tons and boasts a capacity of 3,215 guests at double occupancy.

NCL announced sailings onboard the new ship would commence in summer 2022.
