NCL’s Embark series explores cruising history

SINGAPORE, 15 August 2022: Norwegian Cruise Line has introduced its latest EMBARK with NCL Series, “The Evolution of Innovation,” a showcase of the history of cruising and the company’s 55-year legacy of pioneering and defining vacation experiences at sea.

With just a few weeks away from the highly anticipated debut of Norwegian Prima, this three-part programme chronicles NCL’s groundbreaking moments and series of firsts, revolutionising modern-day cruising and preparing it for this next evolution of NCL.

In this new episode of EMBARK, viewers are guided through NCL’s storied journey, from being the first cruise line to offer roundtrip voyages to the Caribbean in 1966 to NCL’s new Prima Class of ships, debuting in August 2022.

In each episode, an element of NCL’s innovative, multifaceted, and guest-centred focus is illustrated through the unique perspectives of NCL executives, long-serving staff members, loyal guests and remarkable individuals who played key roles in NCL’s evolution from the very beginning. Bringing viewers along Norwegian’s storied past, present and future, the episodes offer viewers the opportunity to take an exclusive peek into the history of the brand, with never-before-seen interviews and archived footage, as well as a first look at the exceptional class of vessels that will define NCL’s future.
