Norwegian’s Newest Ship Cruises From the U.S. for the First Time

Norwegian Prima, Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest cruise ship, sailed from the U.S. for the first time as the vessel just completed a four day cruise from New York City.

Norwegian Prima’s first cruise from the U.S. was a four night sailing from New York with two port stops in Canada.  The cruise ship will sail one more cruise from New York before a 12 night repositioning voyage to Galveston.  The vessel will also offer cruises from Miami and Port Canaveral before the end of the year.

As the newest ship in Norwegian Cruise Line’s 18-ship fleet, Norwegian Prima, made her grand U.S. debut in New York City on October 6, 2022 following a historic launch as the first major cruise ship to be christened in Reykjavik, Iceland.

For the first time in the U.S., Norwegian Prima welcomed more than 2,400 guests who enjoyed unparalleled elevated experiences only available on NCL’s Prima Class, including the world’s only and largest three-level racetrack at sea with the Prima Speedway.

“As a native New Yorker this city is dear to me as well as to our Company, where NCL has been sailing from the Big Apple since 1991, so we are thrilled that our newest ship, Norwegian Prima, completed her first U.S. voyage in New York City,” said Norwegian Cruise Line President and Chief Executive Officer Harry Sommer. “We are very excited to show travelers all that Norwegian Prima has to offer, including more wide-open spaces, thoughtful design and elevated service that will exceed guest expectations.”
