Special Feature:

Current cruise ship trends

Part 2

In the first part of our theme special in EAP Issue 3/2018
we told you about all the special features of the world's
current largest cruise ship, the "Symphony of the Seas",
and other passenger ships belonging to the US cruise line
Royal Caribbean International (RCI). We continue the
theme special here with RCI's plans for a high-thrills slide
park in the Bahamas and an overview for you of the latest
developments at the international cruise line operators
Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) and MSC Cruises. And by
the way, as confirmed by figures published by CLIA (Cruise
Lines International Association), the number of people
taking cruises worldwide in 2017, originally forecast at 25.8
million, exceeded this forecast and actually came in with
a total of 26.7 million guests, denoting significant growth

"Norwegian Bliss", the 16th ship in the Norwegian Cruise
Line fleet, set off on its maiden journey last summer as a
huge steamboat specially built for cruises in Alaska. The
ship is 334 meters long and 41.4 meters wide, providing
space for 3,998 passengers.
One of the highlights on NCL's latest fleet addition is a
two-storey electric go-kart track. The 300 meter long race
course is the longest go-kart track on the high seas. It was
supplied by Germany's RiMO Supply GmbH, which had
previously provided a similar track system for Norwegian
Bliss' predecessor, "Norwegian Joy" (cp. EAP 6/2017). A
total of nine hairpin curves keep the drivers' adrenaline
flowing. The speed of the track's ten e-karts can be set to
accommodate beginners, more advanced drivers and highly
experienced drivers for a maximum of 50 km/h. And one time
per lap the driver can activate a "Turbo-Boost". At certain
times two-seat go-karts are also available.
Several water play and slide features are also available
on board the ship. NCL once again called on the German
company Aquarena to supply spectacular water attractions,
making Norwegian Bliss the fifth NCL ship to feature
attractions from the water slide specialists at Aquarena.
This time the collaboration yielded the more than 100 meter
