Web3 in Travel is a hit! Norwegian Cruise Line’s NFT Collection Sells Out in 20 Minutes
The Norwegian Cruise Line has announced that it sold out the NFT pieces for sale in its first industry-first collection within 20 minutes of launch.
The collection of sculptures was designed by Italian artist Manuel Di Rita, who goes by the name Peeta. He has created artwork for both Norwegian Prima and her sister vessel Viva in his native land of Italy as well but is probably better known throughouts Europe since then he also did some custom designs on other cruise ships like im Rio De Janeiro – remembering them all will be difficult task considering they come from different eras!
The final remaining art piece, ‘Norwegian Prima Hull Art’, remains up for auction with bidding ending on April 21, 2022 at 8:00 p.m. ET. The winner of the auction will also be awarded a balcony stateroom on one of Norwegian Prima’s U.S. inaugural voyages, setting sail from Miami.
The pieces in the collection can be found at https://nft.ncl.com, and all proceeds from the NFT auction and primary sales will be donated to Teach For America.
Harry Sommer, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line said, “The Prima Class is the future of NCL, taking innovation and guest experiences out of this world… and into the metaverse! Art plays an important role in the guest experience across our fleet, and we are thrilled to add to our legacy of pioneering firsts with this venture into the world of NFTs.”
