“Norwegian Prima” Floated Out Of Port Of Marghera

“Norwegian Prima” floated out of port of Marghera

Venice, Italy (PortSEurope) August 30, 2021 – The “Norwegian Prima” ship is the first of six vessels of Norwegian Cruise Line’s (NCL) new Prima Class of ships and has been floated out of the shipyard in the Port of Marghera, Venice. The vessels’ deliveries are scheduled between 2022 and 2027. The class is based on a prototype project developed by Fincantieri. NCL is part of
Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings is a holding company that is domiciled in Bermuda and based in the United States. It operates three cruise lines as wholly owned subsidiaries – Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises, and Regent Seven Seas Cruises. Separately, Marghera, located next to the suburb of Mestre on the mainland shore west of Venice, is to be the location for new, temporary facilities necessary to receive cruise ships over 25,000 tonnes, which are now banned from entering the Venice lagoon. Last month, Minister of Sustainable Infrastructures and Mobility, Enrico Giovannini, said that from 1 August 2021 large ships, weighing more than 25,000 tonnes, will no longer be able to reach Venice through the San Marco Basin, the San Marco Canal and the Giudecca Canal. The decision was based on the environmental damage created by such large vessels on Venice itself. Copyright (C) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2021.
