On Sunday Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest ship Norwegian Prima arrived in Port Canaveral for the first time, from where she will sail roundtrip Caribbean voyages through March 2023.
The milestone follows an action-packed inaugural season for the ship, which made history as the first major cruise vessel to be christened in Reykjavik, Iceland in August. Her inaugural tour also included sailings from New York City, Galveston, and Miami prior to arriving in Port Canaveral.
Prima‘s Port Canaveral season will include mostly seven-night Caribbean voyages with calls to ports in Mexico, Jamaica, Honduras, Harvest Caye in Belize, and Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas.
“We are thrilled to welcome home Norwegian Prima to Port Canaveral, the first ship in an all-new class for Norwegian Cruise Line,” said Port CEO Captain John Murray. “We have a great partnership with NCLH and this important decision to homeport their newest, most innovative ship at our port underscores our commitment to support the expectations of our valued cruise partners.”
This year, Port Canaveral will welcome more Norwegian Cruise Line ships than ever before, including Norwegian Escape, Getaway, Joy, Gem, and Prima.
Norwegian Prima is the first in the Prima-class, which is planned to include six vessels total.
