Norwegian Cruise Line today announced the new entertainment and on-board experiences for Norwegian Prima, which will be launched in the summer of 2022.
The company announced the Tony Award nominated musical “Summer: The Donna Summer Musical” as an interactive headliner.
When the ship sets sail in the summer of 2022, Norwegian Prima will also showcase numerous world-class cruise industry experiences and new brand experiences, including the world’s first venue that transforms from a three-story theater to a Vegas-style nightclub, with free-fall dry slides and the largest race track at sea, according to a press release.
“We not only increase the guest experience, but also ensure an adrenaline rush and multi-sensory overload,” said Harry Sommer, President and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line. “When we launched Norwegian Prima, we wanted to exceed expectations and offer our guests more space, superior service, thoughtful design and a variety of unforgettable experiences – the wow factor they have been craving for on a highly anticipated cruise vacation to have.”
“Summer: The Donna Summer Musical” comes from the high-performing production team that brought “Jersey Boys”, currently resident, to Norwegian Bliss. This is the story of Donna Summer’s meteoric rise from young starlet to queen of the disco with a score of more than 20 mega hits by Summer including “Bad Girls”, “Last Dance” and “Hot Stuff”. The 75-minute immersive production will be a first at sea, with the theater itself turning into a full disco and guests being part of the show and dancing to the all-time medleys of the summer.
The dance crew takes guests from the disco glam of “Summer” to the neon lights of “Light Balance Universe” with Light Balance, the golden buzzer winner of “America’s Got Talent”, and brings visual effects and style to the Norwegian prima.
All Norwegian Prima headlining acts, including some of the new onboard experiences, will be the focus of attention at Sensoria. The three-story venue, designed to seamlessly transform the space from a state-of-the-art performance stage into a sprawling dance floor, will have customizable seating arrangements and a moving LED screen that descends from the ceiling and is almost half the size of the venue
There’s also the new LIVE on NCL game show experiences, which allow audiences to be part of the show and have the opportunity to win big prizes.
