Introducing Norwegian Cruise Line’s all-new Norwegian Aqua, the first ship in the expanded Prima Plus Class, Norwegian Cruise Line unveiled today the evolution of its Prima class.
Bookings for Norwegian Aqua’s Caribbean voyages, departing from Port Canaveral in Florida, opened today.
As part of this itinerary, NCL will call Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic; Tortola, British Virgin Islands; St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; and Great Stirrup Cay, NCL’s private island in the Bahamas.
Compared to its sister ships, Norwegian Aqua will set new standards and offer new guest experiences with an increase of 10 percent in size and capacity. In addition to offering more outdoor space and the highest staffing levels of any new cruise ship, Norwegian Aqua measures 1,056 feet long, 156,300 gross tons, and accommodates 3,571 guests at double occupancy.
As the first ship of our brand in the Prima Plus Class, Norwegian Aqua represents our commitment to fusing together and redefining the future of our brand, and we are committed to delivering guest-centric experiences that will lead to new waves at sea, according to Norwegian Cruise Line’s president, David J. Herrera. NCL’s Norwegian Aqua is named for the ocean’s beautiful hues and our connection to it, showcasing the line’s innovative nature and its role in the birth of a new era in cruising.”
Allison Hueman, the first major female hull artist for NCL, will create a vibrant and colourful hull art design for Norwegian Aqua. A world-renowned street artist with global brand collaborations, Hueman’s distinctive art style blends ethereal realism with street art. A mashup of abstract and figurative representations of sea and sky, ruled by ancient goddesses, is the theme of Norwegian Aqua’s design, “Where the Sky Meets the Sea.”
The Filipino-American multidisciplinary artist Allison Hueman, who has been working on Norwegian Cruise Line’s hulls since 2006, said, “I am honored to be the first major female hull artist and to know that my artwork will travel the seas touching many parts of the world.” My partnership with a brand that believes in the magical connection between art and exploration is incredibly special to me.”
