All about the Norwegian Viva
The Norwegian Viva is a fairly new ship, being built in 2023. It's considered a medium size ship. Coming in at 965 ft long and ft wide, it's roughly the length of 2.7 football fields, as wide as 0 tractor trailers and the same height as a story building. The Viva will debut in in June 2023. The Viva is still under construction and Norwegian hasn't released all the details yet. This page will be updated as we learn more.
The Norwegian Viva can hold 3,215 based on double occupancy (two people per room) and more when you take into account 3rd and 4th passengers. When you compare the total tonnage of the ship to the number of passengers, the Viva has a space ratio of 44. Depending on the ship, this number can range from 30 to 52 (with a bigger number meaning more space per person) so this ship's space to person ratio is about average.

|Space Ratio (tons of ship per passenger)||44|
Food is a big part of any cruise, and on the Norwegian Viva, there will be plenty of it. You have 11 different dining options to choose from. Of those options, 5 are complementary, or included with your cruise fare. The other 6 options have an additional fee. Some options are a set price and some are a'la cart menu pricing. Only 45% of the dining options are included which means you might spend more while on the ship due to the additional fees.

Pools and Hot Tubs
Nothing beats relaxing by a pool with a nice drink in hand as you feel the fresh sea breeze pass by you. The problem is that with thousands of people on a ship, there's not always room. We're a firm believer that if you want to just spend all day for 7 days in a pool, a cruise isn't for you. You would have a much better bet choosing a resort with a huge pool complex. That being said, a quick dip in the pool can be nice on a hot day. The Norwegian Viva has a total of 4 pools and 6 hot tubs. 1 of the pools and 4 of the hot tubs are exclusive access, which means there's either an extra charge to access them or you need to book a certain class of cabin to have access to them.
