The new NCL Prima Class ship will then sail the Med in summer 2024

Norwegian Viva, which made its debut in August with a series of European sailings, has repositioned to San Juan, Puerto Rico as the newest ship to homeport in the destination after arriving on 15 December 2023. 

Norwegian Cruise Line’s second Prima class ship was named at a ceremony in Miami at the end of November. The ship’s naming, conducted by Puerto Rican singer songwriter Luis Fonsi as godfather, was attended by more than 1,500 guests.

The 3,099-passenger vessel, which features a karting speedway over three levels and an open-air food market, will run seven-night winter Caribbean sailings until March 2024. The ship will then return to Europe for summer cruises in the Mediterranean, including Greek islands itineraries.


Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings president and chief executive Harry Sommer said: “As a company, it has been a milestone year with the debut of next-generation ships across all three of our best-in-class cruise brands, Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

“The addition of Norwegian Viva further elevates our world-class fleet, providing our valued guests with another incredible way to vacation, discover new experiences and create unforgettable memories. 

“Since she launched in August, Norwegian Viva’s initial guest satisfaction scores have outshined any new-build in the history of the NCL fleet, a testament to not only how stunning this ship is, but also the exceptional level of service and attention provided by our amazing crew on board.”
