This was the repositioning cruise from Southampton UK to New York City, the second leg of its maiden voyage. Prima is daring in design and most of it works - but some warnings. This is a warm-weather ship, with lots of real-estate devoted to the outdoors. Public rooms are small (intimate?) and the ship is enigmatic in its layout. Many public rooms are narrow and easily crowd when access to ...

We have just completed our 13th NCL cruise, a transatlantic cruise on the Norwegian Prima. We sailed on the transatlantic crossings of the Bliss and Encore and loved both of them. We have also sailed on other cruiselines. All staff and crew were excellent. The food was very good in all venues, albeit limited in the small buffet. The transformation of the theatre into a nightclub in the evening ...

We chose the very first transatlantic cruise by NCL for its newest ship, the Prima. We have cruised NCL almost exclusively and have never had a bad experience. First of all this was a northern cruise(Southampton to Orkney Scotland, Reykjavik Iceland and Halifax Nova Scotia.) So with the rather bleak weather it was impossible to really appreciate all the outdoor ambiance of the ship. That was not ...

We loved the decor of the ship cream , blue and touches of gold - modern and beautiful. The layout of the public spaces is clearly a change from what we expected as regular NCL cruises and not without problems. There are small spaces I guess to spread out passengers. Public areas were crowed with occupancy at 65%. In warm weather I think the spaces during the day will work well. However the ...

We boarded Prima with full knowledge of previous negative reviews. Due to this, we made a conscious effort to look for the positives in our experience onboard. Most people at the start of the cruise agreed with us that the ship was beautiful and the décor was light, modern, and seemed spacious. The sculpture art outside is fabulous, but some smaller aspects have been missed. All toilet roll ...

Lets start with the good stuff: The new design of the cabins is fantastic. Lots of space, very functionnal and great decor. As usual on NCL, quality of the food is outstanding, great crew, great service. The Hudson main dining room is fabulous and the improved fixed menue have lots of choices. Now lets talk about the failures of this new ship: 1. The 3 level atrium looks great. But ...
