The Cruise Ship and Cruise Line Discussion Thread!

P. 131: Disney Wish "Grand Hall" details teased!

Recommended Posts

My first cruise was on the Monarch of the Seas back in Spring 2009. I was totally blown away when I later learned that it was one of Royal's smallest ships (if not the smallest, I can't remember). My family and I had a WONDERFUL time on it! Granted, every single basketball and ping pong ball went overboard by day 3, I loved every single minute of it.

 

My mom plans to take me on the Norwegian Breakaway this August. I'm not sure if it's totally "set" that we will go, but crossing my fingers for it!

RCCL moving a ship back to California isn't a ridiculous notion FWIW. They haven't posted out Europe in 2014 and they've been posting losses on those itineraries for a little while. They've made some statements about looking to concentrate more on the North American market, so who knows.

 

Also, maybe Carnival needs a quick buck because they also sold half the Seabourn fleet to Windstar.

 

I hope so! They'd definitely have me as a customer (probably more than once), even if the ports are the usual boring west coast ports.

^ Exactly! My family and I did the RCCL Mexican cruise out of Los Angeles in 2008 on Monarch and we had a great time! The only lines that seem to go out of Los Angeles and San Diego are Carnival and Holland America with the occasional Princess! Royal Caribbean needs to send us a really nice ship over here!

 

Also, just as a reference, in no way on our cruise on the Monarch did we ever feel that the ship was older than most, and we had a great time, unlike the Klassy Kruise it seems

Why Blue Man Group? I thought the only travelling one was at Universal Studios.

 

I really feel you should stop posting in this thread. Your post about the NCL Epic had no point, you're questioning people who know what they're talking about (re: BMG), seriously just stick to another thread please.

While I know that most cruise ships are strapped for space as they are, do you think we'll ever see a miniaturized amusement area on a cruise ship that contains a more than one or two flat rides?

 

It would be pretty cool to see an area on a cruise ship with a ghost train and maybe a small set of other attractions.

 

One of the issues I can think of aside from forces on the ship's structure is the capacity that would probably be needed for such large crowds.

^ I doubt capacity would ever be that big of an issue. Regardless of what attraction a ship holds, there's no way 4,000+ people would constantly have it bogged down. There's plenty to do on any ship. Crowds always disperse, and you'll always be able to find certain "down times" to enjoy an attraction (ex: when the ship's in port).

 

Personally, I'd rather not see ships turn into floating carnivals. I think Allure is tastefully done, but I'd rather see more waterpark features in the future, if anything.

I just realized that Carnival workers are either selfish or unwise. Why did the forward end of the Triumph have power? The forward end consists of all the crew's cabins. And how do they not know that they can use that power to run necessary power for return to port? I know this industry very well and my family's been out to sea numerous times.

I guess you must've just navigated right past this on the previous page, huh?

I'm guessing weight and stabilization are the bigger issues. I'm sure it can be engineered, but is it really worth it?
