Norwegian Cruise Line Announces Next Ship
The first of six new ships for Norwegian Cruise Line has officially been named.
Norwegian Prima will be the first member of the Prima class, previously known as Project Leonardo. It will be smaller than Norwegian’s recent ships, coming in at 142,500 gross tons and holding just over 3,200 passengers.
Prima is expected to debut in summer 2022, and will sail from a variety of ports before settling in Port Canaveral later next year. Bookings will open on May 12.

Port Everglades is following in the footsteps of PortMiami and Port Canaveral, which are both currently running their own crew vaccination programs.
