Making a grand debut in Europe, Norwegian Viva departed for its first spectacular nine-day journey through the Mediterranean, taking guests from Venice (Trieste), Italy to Lisbon, Portugal with stops in some of Europe’s most incredible seaside destinations including Salerno, off Italy’spicturesque Amalfi Coast; Cannes along France’sstunning Cote d’Azur; and Ibiza, Spain in the Balearic Islands, among other superb destinations. Norwegian Viva will sail a selection of bucket-list worthy Greek Isles and Mediterranean voyages through November, before homeporting in San Juan, Puerto Rico in December for a season in the Caribbean.
“This summer, our guests will have the opportunity to explore Europe aboard our newest magnificent vessel, Norwegian Viva, while enjoying its well-appointed spacious design, elevated experiences, expansive culinary offerings and signature Norwegian Cruise Line hospitality provided by the best crew in the industry,” said David J. Herrera, president of Norwegian Cruise Line. “Norwegian Viva’s tagline is ‘Live it Up,’ and I have no doubt our guests will be doing just that while they cruise to some of the liveliest cities in Europe and the Caribbean during the ship’s inaugural season.”
Mirroring the design of the award-winning sister ship Norwegian Prima, Norwegian Viva features standout onboard experiences including the Viva Speedway—the three-level racetrack; Indulge Food Hall, an upscale food market exhibiting 11 unique eateries; the fastest slides at sea, The Drop and Rush; and NCL’s industry-exclusive sustainable cocktail bar, the Metropolitan Bar.
The luxurious and spacious design of Norwegian Viva is taken to new heights through an extensive collection of artworks spread throughout the ship. Notably, The Concourse, an outdoor sculpture garden of significant investment, stands as a testament to this commitment. Additionally, a captivating and interactive 52-foot-wide art installation by contemporary British digital artist Dominic Harris enriches the ship’s aesthetic. Uniquely crafted for Norwegian Viva, Harris’ digital masterpiece titled “Every Wing Has a Silver Lining” adorns the Metropolitan Bar, responding dynamically to movement, offering viewers an engaging experience.
The ship also boasts a world-class entertainment lineup, headlined by the uproarious Tony Award®-nominated comedy “Beetlejuice The Musical.” Alongside this, the iconic game show “Press Your Luck LIVE” adds another layer of immersive excitement, inviting the audience to actively participate and vie for remarkable grand prizes.
