Norwegian Prima gay cruise

 

Be The F1rst!

Welcome aboard the first of a new class of ships designed to elevate every expectation. Norwegian Prima is the first cruise ship in Norwegian Cruise Line's new Prima class, and is scheduled to debut in August 2022.

Norwegian Prima has a distinctive look compared to the NCL cruise ships that preceded it. The line's luxury ship-within-a-ship area, The Haven, has been relocated to the back of the ship so all cabins and suites, as well as the area's special sundeck, face the water. This deck plan design makes the ship look like a Miami waterfront condo building.

 

Norwegian Prima view

 

Norwegian Prima's deck plans also have an expanded outdoor space with pools and restaurants on Deck 8 called Ocean Boulevard. The area is 44,000 square feet long and wraps around the entire deck, encompassing not just restaurants and bars, but pools and relaxation space.

A first for Norwegian is The Concourse, an outdoor sculpture garden with installations designed by Alexander Krivosheiw. Two Oceanwalk glass bridges are another new deck plan feature, ready for your Insta feed. La Terraza is a new open-air lounge, meant as a retreat for sea views and as a place for people to take things easy.

 

Norwegian Prima aft

 

Infinity Beach is another new concept debuting on Norwegian Prima. The highlight here are two infinity pools, each on one side of the ship, to bring people closer to the sea.

Norwegian Prima debuts the line's first three-story Atrium. The glass-walled Penrose Atrium will span decks six, seven and eight will be one of the focal points on Norwegian Prima. The space will include futuristic architecture including a large-scale chandelier inspired by constellations and features moving light fixtures weighing more than 7,300 pounds (3,311 kgs).

 

Norwegian Prima Ocean Boulevard

 

Lining the Penrose Atrium will be a three-deck-high light feature that will convey the feeling of the sun rising on the horizon and surround a three-level wall art piece that will resemble a topographic map.

You'll also find plenty of shops, bars and cafes in the Penrose Atrium, including Starbucks Coffee, the Whiskey Bar and the Prima Casino and The Penrose Bar featuring video poker machines.

 

Norwegian Prima Onda by Scarpetta restaurant

 

Located at the back of Deck 8, Indulge Food Hall is an upscale open-air marketplace-style eatery, with 11 different venues serving different types of cuisine.

Among the venues that are new on Norwegian Prima include Seaside Rotisserie, serving rotisserie chicken and other items; Nudis, which will have noodle dishes from around the world and Tamara, serving classic Indian dishes and vegetarian options. The Latin Quarter will serve "classic Latin food with a twist," while the Tapas Food Truck will have elevated Latin-inspired street food. Garden Kitchen will serve customized salads. Sweet lovers will gravitate to Just Desserts and Just Ice Cream.

 

Norwegian Prima Food Hall

 

Other new venues include seafood specialty restaurant Palomar, which will feature high-end Mediterranean cuisine; Hasuki, a new take on the traditional "hibachi-style" Japanese restaurant and Nama, a new sushi bar.

Besides these new venues, Indulge Food Hall will be home to the returning restaurant Q Texas Smokehouse, as well as Coco's sweets and Starbucks.

Beyond Indulge Food Hall, Ocean Boulevard will have three specialty restaurants with indoor/outdoor seating. Los Lobos is the line's premium Mexican venue. The Local Bar & Grill has been revamped as an upscale beach club, and will have live music, cocktails and Americana cuisine.

 

Norwegian Prima Haven Sundeck

 

But it's not all new onboard Norwegian Prima, several of the line's most popular dining venues will return, including NCL's signature steakhouse, Cagney's Steakhouse, French specialty restaurant, Le Bistro and Food Republic, the Asian-fusion specialty venue.

Launching under the line's Sail and Sustain program, The Metropolitan Bar will feature responsibly crafted zero-waste cocktails prepared with surplus ingredients as well as offer a fully sustainable spirits menu and more than 20 biodynamic wines.

 

Norwegian Prima three story venue

 

NCL has once again partnered with James Beard Award-nominee and Bar-Lab founder, Gabe Orta to pair quality cocktails with sustainably focused practices. Other new bar and lounge options on Norwegian Prima include The Belvedere Bar, a contemporary cocktail lounge featuring crafted cocktails.

Another must do for thrill seekers is The Drop, a dry, freefall slide with a 10-story plunge - creating what Norwegian is touting as "the highest G-forces of any cruise line." There’s also The Rush, with dueling dry racing slides.

Other new activities on Norwegian Prima include The Bull's Eye, a twist on the classic game of darts, but with a video tracking system to automatically calculate scores -- the system can also do instant game replays. Tee Time is a new Vegas-style interactive mini-golf experience with participants competing for prizes.
