NCL gearing up for a busy 2022 from the Indian market

Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL) is all geared up for a productive business year from the Indian market. To encourage and appreciate the Indian travel trade partners, Eamonn Ferrin, Vice President – International Business, Norwegian Cruise Line recently visited India and met the key trade partners from across India in Mumbai.

Speaking about the visit, Ferrin said, “I believe in the potential of the Indian market for the global cruise industry and hence planned this visit to meet our key partners personally. Our India team is doing a great job of educating and updating our partners with our products, features, itineraries and sailings. Over the years, we have observed that Indian travel partners have successfully helped us upsell our product and convinced Indian travellers to opt for longer itineraries. We look forward to continued support from our partners as we bring in the new era of cruising with our Prima Class ships starting August 2022.”

According to Ferrin, Norwegian Prima represents an exciting new chapter for NCL. Norwegian Prima is the first of six ships in NCL’s highly anticipated Prima Class, the Brand’s first new class of vessels in nearly 10 years. At 965 feet long, 142,500 gross tons and with a capacity for 3,215 guests at double occupancy, the vessel is designed to put guests first. Norwegian Prima boasts wide-open spaces, thoughtful and stunning design, and a variety of new experiences for the Brand.

Laying claim to the title of the most spacious new cruise ship in the premium and contemporary categories, Norwegian Prima offers the most outdoor deck space and the most expansive accommodations of any new build. She boasts multiple Company firsts, including Ocean Boulevard, wrapping around the entire deck over 44,000 square feet, allowing guests to connect to the ocean while enjoying alfresco dining and unique experiences such as Infinity Beach, where two stunning infinity pools are positioned to take in the vastness of the ocean with uninterrupted views, and Oceanwalk, where two glass bridges will make guests feel as though they are walking on air over the water.

Commencing summer 2022, Norwegian Prima will offer bucket-list itineraries in Northern Europe with voyages from Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and Copenhagen, Denmark giving guests the opportunity to explore the stunning Norwegian Fjords and Baltic Sea. She will then sail a 12-day transatlantic voyage from Southampton to New York via Scotland’s Shetland Islands, Halifax in Nova Scotia and extended overnight stay in Reykjavik, Iceland. Through the fall and winter, Norwegian Prima will offer a variety of port-rich Bermuda and Caribbean cruises from New YorkGalveston, TexasMiami and Orlando (Port Canaveral), Fla., including calls to Harvest Caye, the Company’s private resort destination in Belize as well as the Company’s private island, Great Stirrup Cay, in the Bahamas.
