Norwegian Viva has been floated out at the Fincantieri Marghera shipyard dry dock.

The vessel is the second in the Prima Class series and was floated out by Fincantieri at the dry dock of the company’s shipyard in Marghera, Venice, Italy.

This marked the completion of the external works and painting of the new vessel, which features hull artwork designed by Italian graffiti artist Manuel Di Rita.

Currently, the vessel is undergoing work for interior fittings and guest accommodations. It is expected to begin operations in 2023.
