Ship of the month: Norwegian Prima

Highlights include Broadway-style show Summer: The Donna Summer Musical, a Vegas-style nightclub, a freefall dry slide aptly named The Drop, and the largest go-kart track at sea – not to mention live game show experiences including The Price is Right and Supermarket Sweep.
Check out the Indulge Food Hall for 11 complimentary options including Southern-style Q Texas Smokehouse; Tamara for Indian and veggie dishes, and the Tapas Truck.Speciality venues include Onda By Scarpetta (modern Italian) and Palomar (Mediterranean seafood).
Find your ideal cruise
Spanning Decks 6, 7 and 8, NCL’s first three-storey atrium is a glass-walled show-stopper. Adorned with a spectacular giant chandelier, it’s the social hub of the ship, where you’ll also find the Whiskey Bar, Prima Casino and Starbucks Coffee.
Searching for a closer connection with the sea? Head to Deck 8, where Ocean Boulevard wraps around the entire ship, allowing guests to experience amazing ocean views while enjoying plenty of food options and outdoor activities along the way.
Size is everything on Prima, and her 13 suite categories – including some with three bedrooms – represent the widest selection of any ship afloat. Even standard Oceanview and Balcony staterooms are NCL’s largest ever, with super-generous bathrooms and showers.
Spread over eight decks of suites and public areas, this exclusive ship-within-a-ship offers the most luxurious accommodation on board, along with private amenities including a spa with a glass-walled sauna and cold room, and a stunning infinity pool overlooking the ship’s wake.
