Prima, of 142,500 tons and capacity for 3,250 passengers, is the first ship in a series of six of a new class that NLC has already ordered from the Italian shipyard Fincantieri.
She will initially cruise Europe and then move to the US to sail from Florida and Texas ports in the Caribbean later this year.
One of the particularities of Prima is that it will have a three-story go-kart track, the largest on board a cruise ship. (AND)
