Norwegian Viva, the second of six vessels from Norwegian Cruise Line’s (NCL) new Prima Class of ships, was delivered on 3 August 2023 at the Marghera shipyard.

Along with her sisterships, Norwegian Viva will form the backbone of the future NCL fleet, at 143,000-tons, almost 300m in length , and accommodating 3,100 guests.

The Prima Class is based on a prototype project developed by Fincantieri, which enhances the consolidated features of NCL’s signature offering of freedom and flexibility, qualified by an innovative configuration for an elevated passenger experience.

In addition, the yard focussed on energy efficiency, with the aim of optimizing consumption at sea and reducing environmental impact, compliant with all the most recent regulations on this matter.

NCL is part of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd., the US-based company, which is one of the world’s leading cruise operators. Besides NCL, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd operates the Regent Seven Seas Cruises brand, to which Fincantieri will deliver in Ancona a third luxury cruise ship Seven Seas Grandeur, having already completed Seven Seas Explorer (2016) and Seven Seas Splendor (2020).
