Our Fleet

With 17 world class vessels, Norwegian Cruise Line has one of the most nimble and contemporary fleets in the industry. Fourteen ships are divided among five different classes, including the Sun, Dawn, Jewel, Breakaway and Breakaway Plus Class. Norwegian Epic, Pride of America and Norwegian Spirit are in their own classes, adding to the brand’s variety of vessels. 

Following the Breakaway Plus Class, the most innovative and successful class in the Company’s history, Norwegian Cruise Line announced in 2017 the next generation class of ships with Prima Class. The Company has placed six ships on order from 2022 to 2027. The new class will build upon the brand’s legacy of freedom and flexibility found across its fleet and feature a host of cutting-edge designs that will further elevate its already award-winning guest experience.
