Norwegian Cruise Line has revealed its next addition to the Prima Class with the all-new Norwegian Aqua, setting sail in April 2025.
Spanning 1,056 feet, Norwegian Aqua will accommodate 3,571 passengers, home to the world's first hybrid rollercoaster and waterslide, the Aqua Slidecoaster, with exhilarating dual slides and a magnetic lift that propels guests through two different courses featuring three stories of speedy twists and turns around the ship's funnel.

The ship will also birth the new Glow Court, a digital sports complex with an interactive LED floor, transforming into a nightclub at night, as well as some of the old Prima Class favorites, including The Drop (NCL's 10-story free-fall slide) and the Stadium, a now expanded game space.
Norwegian Aqua will be home to the largest accommodation at sea with the launch of its new Three-Bedroom Duplex Haven Suites in the keycard-access-only complex, The Haven. These two-story suites will boast three bedrooms, king-size beds, a sprawling balcony, and floor-to-ceiling windows for breathtaking ocean views.
The Haven aboard Norwegian Aqua will be the largest Haven complex in the fleet with 123 suites, an expansive sundeck, an infinity pool overlooking the ship's stern, an outdoor spa with a glass-walled sauna and cold room, two hot tubs and an exclusive bar pouring rare spirits and vintages. You'll also get 24-hour butler service and a dedicated concierge team.
You can catch some of the best ocean views from Ocean Boulevard, an outdoor walkway that wraps around the entire ship, complete with a glass bridge, Oceanwalk, Or head to Infinity Beach, featuring expanded vistas and cozy pools overlooking each side of the ship, and La Terrazza, the open-air lounge with sweeping sea views.
Norwegian Aqua will also feature a lively hull art design by world-renowned Filipino-American artist Allison Hueman, NCL's first-ever major female hull artist.
"I'm honored to not only be the first major female hull artist for Norwegian Cruise Line but also to showcase my artwork at sea to millions of guests a year," she says.
Starting today, you can book Norwegian Aqua's first voyages to the Caribbean with seven-day itineraries departing Port Canaveral, Florida. Voyages include calls to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic; Tortola, British Virgin Islands; St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; and Great Stirrup Cay, NCL's private island in the Bahamas.
From August 2025, Norwegian Aqua will offer five and seven-day voyages to Bermuda from New York City before setting sail on five and seven-day Eastern Caribbean journeys from Miami, beginning in October 2025.
