New cruise ship will be heaven for rev heads; hell for others

Norwegian Cruise Line has unveiled details of a unique attraction on its new ship Norwegian Joy, a soon-to-be-unveiled 3,850 passenger vessel purpose-built for the Chinese market. 

In a move that will delight rev heads and send out warning bells to anyone seeking peace and quiet, the new ship will feature a two-level electric go-kart track on its upper level as part of a deal with Ferrari Scuderia watches. 

Norwegian Joy will home port in Shanghai and Tianjin, following a grand inaugural port tour leading up to a christening ceremony on June 27, led by her Godfather, ‘King of Chinese Pop’ Wang Leehom.

The Ferrari-branded track will allow up to 10 drivers at a time to race each other on the course and have photos taken at the finish line to share with friends and family back home. Guests of Norwegian Joy’s The Haven and Concierge class cabins will enjoy a number of complimentary rides as part of the amenities and benefits of their suites and staterooms.

Norwegian Joy will officially be delivered on April 27 in Bremerhaven, Germany. The ship will then set sail for China, where she will be showcased through a grand inaugural port tour featuring one-day events at the ports of Qingdao, Shenzhen, and Hong Kong, as well as VIP partner cruises from Norwegian Joy’s home-ports of Shanghai and Tianjin. 

Although it promises to provide "first class at sea" experiences, it sounds like a very specialised cruise vessel with an open-air laser tag course, simulator rides and interactive video walls and two multi-story waterslides.
