Special Note About This Cruise
The Brand New Norwegian Prima, which is currently under construction and will begin service in the fall of 2022, was introduced by Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) on May 12, 2021 and immediately sold out several itineraries. I was fortunate enough to reserve 70 cabins for our group (50 balcony cabins and 20 inside cabins) on the May 7, 2023 sailing from New York City to Bermuda at the introductory prices which have risen steadily throughout May and June 2021. If demand continues at the current pace, it is highly likely that NCL will recall some or perhaps all of my unbooked cabins. This could happen at any time. Therefore I am encouraging all Salisbury Cruise Club members who wish to join us on this cruise to book your cabin AS SOON AS POSSIBLE while I still have cabins available in our group inventory.
The Norwegian Prima is a brand new class of ship for NCL and features a whole host of new and interesting concepts. On this inaugural cruise, you will BE THE F1RST to experience the next generation of cruise ships designed to elevate every expectation. Built in 2022 with a capacity of 3,215 guests (double-occupancy) you will be among the first to explore the greater wide open and enjoy the expansive outdoor deck space on the most spacious new cruise ship at sea. Dip into the horizon at Infinity Beach, walk over water on their new glass bridge and discover many more amazing experiences. Take a 360° seaside stroll along the breathtaking Ocean Boulevard and discover experiences beyond your expectations around every bend. Sit back, relax and enjoy the stunning views or relax under a starry sky at the Indulge Firepit. Swim up to the horizon in one of their infinity pools, designed to blend into the ocean. Head over to The Concourse to admire the beautiful, interactive artwork available. Capture great artsy photos and create cherished memories. Kick back with the stars, both in the sky and on the big screen, at the outdoor movie nights, or circle up around the fire pit to unwind after another incredible day at sea. Looking for a side of fresh air? Grab your favorite treat and head for one of the luxurious hammocks just outside Indulge Food Hall. Relax and unwind as the ocean breeze gently sways your hammock. It’s the perfect end to a perfect meal. Whether you’re craving tacos or tandoori, grab your favorite lunch at Indulge Food Hall then head outside to enjoy your meal seaside. Find the perfect comfy and cozy seating with panoramic views that span the entire back of the ship. Grab a book, a drink or some friends and take it easy in La Terraza. This lounge space is designed to be both spacious and intimate, allowing you to relax in peace whenever the mood strikes.
We are pleased to advise that NCL is currently offering our group special amenities including: a free drink package throughout our cruise, 2-free meals in the specialty restaurants onboard the ship, a $50 shore excursion credit, 250 minute Internet package and a $100 onboard credit per cabin (available for registrations received by June 30, 2021 or until our cabins are gone). And with the Salisbury Cruise Club's generous cancellation policy, if you change your mind later, you can always cancel your cruise and receive a FULL refund of all payments (including your travel protection plan premium) provided you cancel by December 15, 2022.
Bermuda Cruise Summary:
Set sail to Bermuda on Norwegian Prima, NCL's newest ship designed to make waves even when she’s docked. In Norfolk, tour the USS Wisconsin—a retired battleship that is now a museum—and visit the General Douglas MacArthur Memorial for a deeper dive into wartime memorabilia. With two overnight stays at the Royal Naval Dockyard, you have plenty of time to explore Bermuda. Build your first-ever pink sandcastle at Horseshoe Bay Beach and then sail into the mystery of the infamous Bermuda Triangle on a glass-bottom boat evening cruise. Tour the dramatic Crystal Caves, or top your best score with a round at the country’s famous Port Royal Golf Course. Back in New York City, take in the sites of the Big Apple, from the chic SoHo District and Greenwich Village, to the 9/11 Memorial and Empire State Building.
