The newest ship for Norwegian Cruise Line, the Viva, debuts in Europe

The second ship of the Prima Class and the much-anticipated new ship from Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), the Norwegian Viva, welcomed its first passengers as it set sail from Venice (Trieste), Italy. The Norwegian Viva made its grand entrance into Europe when it set sail on its first magnificent nine-day voyage through the Mediterranean, carrying passengers from Venice (Trieste), Italy, to Lisbon, Portugal, with stops in some of Europe’s most incredible seaside destinations, including Salerno, off Italy’s picturesque Amalfi Coast; Cannes along France’s stunning Cote d’Azur; and Ibiza, Spain, in the Balearic Islands, among other outstanding locations. 

Through November, Norwegian Viva will sail a number of must-do Greek Isles and Mediterranean voyages before repositioning to San Juan, Puerto Rico, in December for a Caribbean season. According to David J. Herrera, president of Norwegian Cruise Line, “this summer, guests will have the chance to explore Europe aboard our newest magnificent vessel, Norwegian Viva, while enjoying its well-appointed spacious design, elevated experiences, expansive culinary offerings, and signature Norwegian Cruise Line hospitality provided by the best crew in the industry.” “Norwegian Viva’s tagline is ‘Live it Up,’ and I have no doubt that our guests will be doing just that while they cruise to some of the liveliest cities in Europe and the Caribbean during the ship’s inaugural season.”

 The award-winning Norwegian Prima’s sister ship, Norwegian Viva, features standout onboard experiences like the Viva Speedway, a three-level racetrack; Indulge Food Hall, an upscale food market with 11 unique eateries; The Drop and Rush, the two fastest slides at sea; and the Metropolitan Bar, an NCL industry-exclusive sustainable cocktail bar. Prior to her official christening in Miami on November 28, 2023, Norwegian Viva will cruise a number of Mediterranean and Greek Isles itineraries following its initial voyage.The Queen of Latin Pop, Paulina Rubio, “Saturday Night Live” cast member and Miami resident Marcello Hernandez, and singer Pedro Capó will all be present at the ceremony to formally name the Norwegian Viva, along with Luis Fonsi, a Latin GRAMMY® Award-winning musician.

 From December 2023 to March 2024, the ship will be based in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and make calls at Tortola, British Virgin Islands; St. John’s, Antigua; Bridgetown, Barbados; Castries, St. Lucia; Philipsburg, St. Maarten; and St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. Norwegian Viva will make a comeback to Europe in May 2024, where its Mediterranean itineraries provide an unrivaled chance to explore the splendor and culture of Europe. Travelers will spend less time at sea since they spend an average of 10.5 hours in port, giving them more time to explore. The ease and luxury of their world-class travel accommodations and the option to wake up in a new location are all enjoyed by guests as the ship ferries them from one stunning European city to another. Guests only need to unpack once.
