Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest ship Norwegian Prima has made her Miami debut, from where she will embark on two short inaugural voyages from November 11-14 and November 14-17. The sailings will both visit the line’s private island Great Stirrup Cay.
Norwegian Prima debuted back in August in Reykjavik, Iceland, and continued on her inaugural season tour with sailings from New York City and Galveston, Texas. Now, the vessel arrived today at NCL’s PortMiami cruise terminal, which is the first cruise terminal in the world to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold New Construction v4.0 certification.
“There’s nothing like welcoming Norwegian Prima to Miami,” said Norwegian Cruise Line President and Chief Executive Officer Harry Sommer. “I’ve had the pleasure of seeing her come to life at the Fincantieri shipyard in Venice, Italy as well as launching her in style in Iceland. Now, we are showcasing her to our community here in Miami. It’s a dream come true!”
Norwegian Prima features a popular go-kart track that was first launched on Norwegian Bliss, this time spanning three stories and taking the title of the largest at sea. The vessel also includes a new dining concept called Indulge Food Hall and The Metropolitan Bar, the cruise industry’s first sustainable cocktail bar featuring zero-waste cocktails prepared with surplus ingredients.
Norwegian Prima‘s November 13th visit to Great Stirrup Cay will mark the ship’s first time anchoring at the island, which features white-sand beaches, a zipline, and an exclusive retreat called Silver Cove.
Following these short inaugural Miami sailings, the vessel will sail three seven-night cruises from Miami before heading north to Port Canaveral, which will be her homeport for the winter season.
