I'm waiting on the one with a legit amusement park area complete with a coaster. It's coming, I just know it is. MSC toyed with a drop tower idea for one of their new ships.

^ Same. I'm waiting for a coaster, and drop tower on a cruise ship. It's going to happen. It is just a matter of time.

 

"Introducing the worlds first Roller Coaster At Sea!"

 

I'm betting Carnival or Royal will be the first to jump on board.

Speaking of Klassy Kruise... Just came across this on Yahoo News.

 

Girl dies after falling from cruise ship's interior deck to one below in Miami

 

Good Morning America • MORGAN WINSOR • 21 hours ago

An 8-year-old girl died Saturday after falling from one deck in a cruise ship's interior atrium to a lower deck, officials said.

 

The girl, whose name has not been released, fell on the Carnival Glory cruise ship while it was docked at the Dante B. Fascell Port of Miami on Saturday morning. Miami Fire Rescue personnel responded to the scene around 8:15 a.m. ET and provided emergency care to the child, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department.

 

The girl was subsequently taken to the nearby Ryder Trauma Center, where she died from her injuries, police said.

 

Erika Benitez of Miami-Dade Fire Rescue told ABC News the girl was in critical condition when she arrived at the hospital.

 

It's unclear what led the child to fall. Homicide detectives are investigating the incident, police said.

 

Carnival Cruise Lines said the the ship's command immediately contacted police after she fell and transported her to the ship's medical center.

 

“Our most heartfelt care and concern is with the family at this very difficult time.” Carnival Cruise Lines spokesperson Jennifer de la Cruz said in a statement Saturday.

I still can't think of anything worse than going on family vacation, and returning home with one less family member.

 

Thoughts are with her family.

Just booked a cruise that goes to Cuba plus stays overnight there! My fiance really wanted to go and it's very hard to just "go" there. You have to do a certain amount of hours for education but with staying overnight I'm sure it will be fine!

I know not a cruise ship, but is the same industry. Currently mounting the top half deckhouse of the largest container ship ever built in the US. Just for some perspective, the bottom of the crane stands roughly 200' from the ground, add another 43 feet to the bottom of the dry dock.

11 or 12 people killed on a shore excursion taking RCCL and Celebrity passengers to ruins from Costa Maya. Police suspect a tire blew out at high speed, sending the bus off the road (it may even have rolled a few times before ending up on its side). Yes, it's an official excursion: no other way to end up on a bus trip from Costa Maya than buying from the ship, as anyone who's been knows.

 

I've said this before many times, but for all that ships say about the comparative safety of their shore excursions, the reality is that they're outsourcing to many of the same people you would on your own if you made arrangements, except inflating the price to get a cut themselves. You're not gonna be safer; they're playing on your fears of the unknown.

This is going to go down as one of the worst 'cruise ship accidents' ever. Looks like everyone from children to elderly were killed, and some of the injured are severe. Truly a terrible event. Over on one of the cruise message boards I'm on someone lost a brother in this accident. I just hope this doesn't scare people away from cruising, like we all already knew, the cruise ship is super safe compared to driving! *Not that I would let this deter me from driving in a less developed country to see amazing sights, it's just a small risk you have to take.

This cruise ship screams of terrible parents and terrible children.

 

https://www.cnn.com/travel/article/cartoon-network-cruise-ship/index.html

 

Cruise ships aren't for everyone. Cartoon-themed cruise ships aimed at families with young kids even less so.

But for fans of animation broadcaster Cartoon Network, a colorful new branded cruise liner -- Cartoon Network Wave -- is about to float their boats. The newly announced ship, which embarks on its maiden voyage from Singapore in late 2018, will draw inspiration from popular shows to create a kid-oriented experience at sea. Its 800 cabins are inspired by shows such as "Adventure Time" and "Ben 10," while 11 entertainment decks will host themed nights including circus shows and parties with the Powerpuff Girls. The ship will be the latest of several new oceangoing options for families with kids. Disney has just announced the return of two favorite cruise options. Its popular "Star Wars" and "Marvel" sea adventures will be on offer on select Disney cruises in 2018 and 2019.

 

This colorful new ship is emblazoned with Cartoon Network star Jake the Dog. Pictured here: Artist impression of Cartoon Network Wave. All illustrations are subject to change without prior notice. Cartoon Network's ship will be dominated by images of Jake the Dog -- the star of "Adventure Time" -- with others dotted around restaurants and bars. There's also a rope adventure park and an outdoor "Young Tooniverse" space for kids to play in.

 

There will be some great entertainment options on this fantastic new ship. Pictured here: Artist impression of Toonix Pool on Cartoon Network Wave. All illustrations are subject to change without prior notice. The cruise is the product of a partnership between Oceanic Group and Turner Broadcasting, the parent company of Cartoon Network and CNN. "Turner is always looking at new ways to bring our characters to life -- and Cartoon Network Wave will be their home on the high seas," says Ricky Ow, president of Turner Asia Pacific. Cartoon Network Wave will have its maiden voyage in late 2018. Pictured here: Artist impression of Cartoon Network Wave. All illustrations are subject to change without prior notice.

 

Cartoon Network Wave will sail to 13 destinations across the Asia Pacific Region, including Singapore, Malaysia and China.

I believe The main thing you’re paying the premium for is the cruise line making sure you’re back before they leave. Book on your own and you’re SOL.

Today we got a special preview of "Star Wars Day at Sea" on the Disney Fantasy. Since this was a media event, everything was compressed down into a few hours, but the entire event looks FANTASTIC! We got to meet some of the characters, see a sample of the shows, check out the Star Wars area in the Oceaneer Club, try some of the food offerings for the event, and a walk around the ship taking it all in!

 

Disney Cruise Line most certainly does things at a "higher end" than other cruise lines. For Disney fans and especially in this case Star Wars fans that like the "Deluxe" accommodations of Walt Disney World, a week on the Disney Fantasy, or any of their other ships for that matter would be right up your alley!

 

Let's take a look at some highlights from the event and for more details about cruises, special themed "days at sea" or other booking information, check out their website: https://disneycruise.disney.go.com/

 

Here's our re-cap highlights video:
