Norwegian’s New Viva Deluxe Cruise Ship has a 3-Storey Go-Kart Track

Cruise ships have had a rough go over the past couple of years, but the Norwegian Viva may have what it takes to lure travellers back to the ocean. The 965-foot giant can accommodate more than 3,200 guests and has an amenities list that most theme parks would envy. Countless swimming pools, bars and restaurants live within this wonderland on water. If that doesn’t get your engine revving, there’s also a full-size go-kart track. Scheduled to hit the sea on June 2023, Norwegian Cruise Line recently gave viewers an inside look at their latest fleet member.

Created by Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri, the Norwegian Viva is the upscale version of Norwegian Prima’s sister ship. Speaking of upscale, the Viva boasts a VIP section for financially blessed sailors alongside the vessel’s regular staterooms. Dubbed The Haven, it’s described as a “ship-within-a-ship” by acclaimed Italian designer Piero Lissoni. The exclusive area contains 107 suites and villas, along with a private restaurant, a sundeck, a secluded infinity pool overlooking the ships wake with an outdoor spa and sauna. Guests residing inside the exclusive area will also enjoy a concierge service for curating activities, as well as 24-hour butler service that caters to all your desires.

Known as the Ocean Boulevard, The Viva offers a 44,000-square-foot walkway that wraps around the entire ship, allowing guests to discover all the exciting features. There’s a 10-story plunge slide called the Drop that flings passengers down the side of the boat into the water. As previously stated, there’s also a three-story go-kart track that can host up to 15 racers for some high-speed action at sea. Additionally, there’s an outdoor sculpture garden, several infinity pools and an open-air food hall with 11 eateries.

“Norwegian Viva sets the standard in the premium segment, illustrating our commitment to pushing boundaries in four main areas: wide open space, service that puts guests first, thoughtful design and experiences beyond expectation,” Norwegian’s CEO Harry Sommer said in a statement. “We have taken everything our guests love to the next level with this brand-new class of ships designed with them in mind.”

Making its debut trip throughout the Mediterranean in June 2023, Norwegian Viva will port at Athens, Barcelona, Rome and Lisbon. Then, she’ll head to the Southern Caribbean for the winter season.
