‘Norwegian Viva’, the second of six Norwegian Cruise Line’s (NCL) new Prima Class cruise ships, was delivered on 3rd August from Fincantieri’s Marghera shipyard.
Together with her sisterships, ‘Norwegian Viva’ will form the backbone of the future NCL fleet.
The vessels are of 143,000 gt, almost 300 m long, and can accommodate around 3,100 guests. Deliveries of the other ships are scheduled through 2028.
Their design is based on a prototype project developed by Fincantieri, focusing on energy efficiency, with the twofold aim of optimising consumption at sea and reducing environmental impact, as well as being compliant with the most recent regulations.
At Ancona, Fincantieri will also deliver the third luxury cruise ship for Norwegian Cruise Lines Holdings’ (NCLH) brand, Regent Seven Sea, the ‘Seven Seas Grandeur’, this year.
She will follow the ‘Seven Seas Explorer’ (2016) and ‘Seven Seas Splendor’ (2020).
Fincantieri has also delivered the ‘Vista’ to another NCLH brand, Oceania Cruises. She is the first of the new generation Allura Class. The second vessel is to be delivered in 2025.
From 2016, Fincantieri and Lloyd’s Register (LR) co-operated with all of the NCLH brands to deliver the new generation of ships.
