The funny thing is that over the last couple of years cruise ships have really started becoming a bit more like floating theme parks! The latest RCCL and Disney ships are closer to bridging that gap!

I don't think there will ever be a full scale roller coaster but I could totally see more things like zip lines, water coasters and other "attractions" getting added. Maybe a fully enclosed alpine coaster or something?


or a small dark ride maybe? A Shooting dark ride on a ship would be really cool and a lot of fun! I'm sure you could fit a scaled down version of Toy Story mania on a cruise ship somewhere, maybe with a few less number of show scenes that have a longer play time for each for each game maybe? or RCCL could put a Dreamworks character dark ride of some kind.

If that happened I think future TPR cruises would definitely include a drunken Dark Ride Shootout Challenge (sponsored by Piers, naturally).

A nice, long alpine coaster going down many levels, though themed dark ride portions! I could design it for them.

To be honest, I'd rather see them building more things like the Dragon's Tail alpine coaster at Labadee. Sure it's not a *real* credit, but as a ride that everyone can enjoy, it's GREAT! And when you consider all the zipline tours, ATVs, dune buggies, and wave runners they offer on port days there really is quite a lot of options for "thrill seekers."

But I do agree a dark ride like TSM could totally be done for the Disney ships!

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

I agree. As long as there's something to appeal to all demographics, I'm for it.

Maybe a cruise line could add in ship departing zip-lines. =)

He's kind of sad and pathetic

At first, I really had no desire to go on a cruise. Now after seeing these photos, I want to go on a cruise! :)

Hi. Great posts, Thanks. Doing Allure in June. First big boat w/ grandkids. My recollection is that RCCL is pretty easy going re kids dress in the main dining room. Your sense? Shorts OK for kids? Formal night still pretty relaxed for men (last RCCL seemed like few tuxes and suits, mostly sports coats). True?

I'm a know-it-all about donkeys!

The more I think about this idea, the more epic it becomes. ;)
