The third-largest cruise line in the world, Norwegian Cruise Line, has announced plans to sail out of Galveston.
Norwegian Cruise Line has reported it will homeport their new liner, the Prima, in Galveston in 2023. This would mark the first time Norwegian has sailed regular cruises from Galveston.
After Norwegian Prima concludes her inaugural year sailing bucket-list itineraries as the industry's newest ship, she will be the only vessel during the winter 2023 and 2024 season offering seven-day voyages to the Western Caribbean out of Galveston, Texas, providing the most extensive port experiences in the region with every itinerary visiting four ports. Norwegian Prima will call to Costa Maya and Cozumel, Mexico; Harvest Caye, the Caribbean's premier island destination in Belize and exclusive to guests of NCL; and Roatan Island, Honduras, with all visits featuring between eight and nine in-port hours.
With voyages beginning in summer 2022, Norwegian Prima will be 965 feet long, more than 142,000 gross tons and able to accommodate 3,215 guests at double occupancy.

Hop on over to The Caribbean's premier resort-style destination, Harvest Caye, and zoom over sapphire waters on a zip line and unwind in a private, luxury beachside villa.
In Roatán, embark on an eco-adventure in Manawakie Nature Park where you can interact with capuchin monkeys and sloths and enjoy an exhilarating all-terrain buggy ride through lush jungle.
Then journey back in time at the Tulum Mayan ruins outside Cozumel.
