As you board Norwegian Prima, one of the first things you’ll notice is how spacious, modern, and elegant it is. The Prima offers up to 36% more space per guest compared to other contemporary cruise lines, and you can really feel the sense of openness. Forget the stuffy old cruise ships of yesteryear. Prima was unveiled in only 2022, so it’s all about sleek, modern, and inviting interiors and a new take on cruising – where you make your own schedule and cruise the way you want to.

The ship also boasts the most outdoor deck space of any new cruise ship, with multiple infinity pools, walkways, and lounges that connect you to the sea. So it’s safe to say that those looking for a high-end cruise experience would be impressed, even at first glance. But if the regular luxury of on-tap cocktails, fine dining, and spacious cabins isn’t quite enough to satisfy your needs, Norwegian Prima has another trick up it’s sleeve.

The Haven doesn’t just mean a better cabin or a nicer shower. It’s an oasis of calm, with its own restaurant and bar featuring floor-to-ceiling windows, a private lounge, and infinity pool and jacuzzi for guests of The Haven only. Here, all-inclusive is really taken seriously. Dom Perignon? On tap. Fine dining at speciality restaurants? Eat filet mignon and oysters to your heart’s content without ever leaving the ship.

And don’t worry about needing to lift a finger, because you also have a 24-hour butler and a concierge who cater to your every whim, from making reservations for dining and entertainment to arranging shore excursions and spa treatments.

It is heavenly. Or opt for a facial or acupuncture to relieve some of the signs of a hard few months at the office. There’s even a full service hair and nail salon, so getting ready for that special dinner is a breeze. You can also enjoy the Thermal Suite, an adult-only oasis with saunas, steam rooms, ice and snow rooms, vitality pools, and heated loungers. Whether you’re a guest of The Haven or not, The Mandara Spa is an outing you really shouldn’t miss.


Norwegian Prima is not just about food, pampering, and entertainment, though. While you’re onboard, it’s easy to forget that you’re cruising to some of the most coveted travel destinations in the world. But excursions and day trips are another area where the Prima truly excels. The ship offers some of the most exciting shore excursions in the Caribbean and Europe, where you can explore stunning destinations such as St. Thomas, Tortola, Barcelona, Rome, Naples, Santorini, and more.
