The new Norwegian Viva’s European and Caribbean 2023-24 programmes

Expect a food hall, sculpture garden and infinity pools on NCL’s newest cruise ship

Norwegian Viva, the next ship in NCL’s brand-new Prima Class, will launch in June 2023.

The vessel will offer the highest staffing levels and space-to-guest ratio of any new cruise ship in the contemporary and premium cruise categories, and the largest variety of suite categories available at sea.

Special features will include Indulge Food Hall, home to 11 different eateries; The Concourse featuring an outdoor sculpture garden; multiple pool decks and infinity-style pools, and Ocean Boulevard, a 44,000-square-foot wraparound walkway lapping the entire ship.


The Haven by Norwegian, NCL’s ultra-premium exclusive-access quarters, described as a “ship-within-a-ship”, will also be redefined on the Norwegian Viva, with 107 Piero Lissoni-designed suites, an expansive sundeck, an infinity pool overlooking the ship’s wake and an outdoor spa with a glass-walled sauna.

In summer, the Norwegian Viva will sail the Mediterranean before heading to the Caribbean for the winter season.

Sustainable Sailing with NCL
Both of NCL’s first two Prima Class vessels – Norwegian Prima and Norwegian Viva – will have cutting-edge alternative technologies, such as a NOx reduction system (SCR), that reduce the ship’s overall environmental impact. SCR catalysts filter out sulfur oxides up to 98% and nitrogen oxides up to 90%, ensuring the vessels meet Tier III NOx compliance. They will be equipped with an Exhaust Gas Cleaning System (EGCS), an Advanced Wastewater Treatment System to treat and clean all wastewater to meet stringent international standards and Cold Ironing functionality to connect to onshore power grids to further reduce emissions while in port.
