Cruise Ship Review: Norwegian Viva
We look into Norwegian Viva, the extravagant new addition to Norwegian Cruise Line, as she sets off on her debut cruise.
Norwegian Viva, the extravagant new addition to Norwegian Cruise Line, is an eye-catching riot of color on the outside, and elegantly delicate inside, with an enthralling amusement park at the top with tube slides that twist and turn that spill across the edge.
With its modern snub-nose design This is an innovative and modern-day giant that can accommodate 3200 guests, which combines the fun of a family with a variety of sophisticated bars and eateries.
Viva is the daughter ship of the equally stunning Norwegian Prima, which joined the fleet in August 2022. Although not quite a twin, subtle changes have been made to the exterior paintwork, which was a major draw while she was docked on the seafront that was once the heart that runs through Trieste, an Italian Trieste town. Trieste in anticipation of her departure on the 10th of August.
who are Norwegian Viva to?
Norwegian Vivia is suitable for every person. It’s an ideal family adventure, with children of all age groups (including dads and moms) taking pleasure in the slides and the water slide, as well as the go-cart track that has three levels as well as computer gaming. However, it’s amazing that the attractions don’t completely take over the ship, with the sculpture garden and sophisticated eateries (both inclusive as well as the more expensive selection) and quiet areas for seating as well as vibrant bars (live television football, each women’s World Cup and the opening weekend of the Premier League season) and the quiet ones.
Your suite or stateroom on Norwegian Via
There are 946 rooms with balconies that make up the majority of the vessel, which are all calm and cool with a serene background of light browns and greys. The doors of the wardrobe – just like many other rooms throughout the ship – have a subtle wood-effect, and abstract artwork fills the space behind the huge bed. There’s a fridge, a sofa and a desk that isn’t equipped with a coffee or tea maker. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower. The balcony features chairs as well as a tables for coffee.
There are also balconies and non-balcony rooms. There are also 252 rooms inside, and Studio rooms with 73 beds for solo travellers.
A world inside an entire world is The Haven which is hidden in the aft of the ship. It has the most luxurious suites, 24 hour butler service, a private restaurant, sundeck, and an infinity pool.
Hudson’s restaurant wraps around side of Norwegian Viva offering stunning views
There is a main eatery, stunning Hudson’s which wraps across the front of the vessel with a continuous horseshoe-shaped window, which stretches out to provide stunning views the night we dined on through the Straits of Messina between the sides of Italy and Sicily The next evening, we cruised into the sun setting between the coastline and the island of Capri.
On one side of the vessel there is a Commodore Room and the Commodore Room, which is an outpost of the main restaurant. Both restaurants offer three-course meals with daily changing main dishes and six daily usual dishes (New York Strip Steak as well as seafood, chicken, shrimp pasta, etc.).
They also have a range of extra-cost options of Cagney’s Steakhouse. The cozy, dark Cagney’s offers a menu that includes an New York strip (slightly bigger than Hudson’s) at costing $39 (about PS31) and $9 for fries, as well as other side dishes, and the restaurant’s speciality service fee of 20 % which is about $58 (PS45) for a steak and chips.
The other eating spots included include Surfside and the casually chic buffet and Indulge Food Hall. This is a new location, offering individual food items, which are part-buffet with a custom-made menu (to reduce the waste of food). Small portions of Texan barbeque dishes, Mexican and other dishes along with desserts and ice-cream with outdoor and indoor seating
Cagney’s is among eight restaurants with an extra charge, including Le Bistro (elegantly glittering French with everything from snails to boeuf Bourguignon), Los Lobos (Mexican), Onda by Scarpetta (Italian), Palomar (Mediterranean), Food Republic (Asian Fusion), Nama (sushi) and Hasuki (teppanyaki).
