Norwegian Cruise Line Raises The Curtain On Its Onboard Entertainment On The Most In-Deman Ship Ever

Norwegian Cruise Line has introduced multiple First-At-Sea innovations including Three-Story Transformational Theater-Nightclub, Real-life Gameshows, Three-Level Racetrack, and Fastest Freefall Drop Dry Slides.

The first of six new Prima Class ships, debuted record-breaking sales and applause when announced in May earlier this year.

Norwegian Prima will showcase numerous cruise industry firsts and new-to-brand elevated onboard experiences when the ship sets sail in summer 2022, including boasting the world’s first venue that transforms from a three-story theater into a Vegas-style nightclub, freefall drop dry slides, and the largest racetrack at sea.

Top First at Sea Experiences include:

“Summer: The Donna Summer Musical” where the theatre itself transforms into a full disco and guests become part of the show.

A three-storey transformational theatre where the space converts from a state-of-the-art performance stage to an expansive dance floor with customisable seating layouts.

Interactive LIVE on NCL game show experiences, allowing the audience to be part of the show and win grand prizes.

The largest and first-ever three-level racetrack with the Prima Speedway. 22% larger than the current racetrack on Norwegian Encore, the speedway is more than a quarter-mile in length and drivers can reach speeds of more than 30mph on the open ocean.

The Drop, the world’s first freefall dry slide where guests can plunge from 10-storeys high.

The Galaxy Pavilion offers 14 virtual gaming attractions, including Topgolf Swing Suite, four new hyper-immersive simulator experiences, and two different escape rooms.

Aqua Park and Main Pool area, will be the Brand’s first Tidal Wave waterslide featuring gushing surfs where guests can ride an innertube to catch the perfect wave. 

Vibe Beach Club, NCL’s adult-only area returns on Norwegian Prima providing enhanced experiences including a dedicated bar and two infinity hot tubs where guests can enjoy the ocean’s horizon at leisure.
