Cruise ships are a luxurious and affordable way to see the world. But, in our eyes, there’s always one thing missing on any ocean-faring adventure. Cars!
It’s no secret that here in the WhichCar office, we’re pretty keen on a road trip. In fact, any opportunity to sit behind a steering wheel is our preference. So you can imagine how thrilled we were when we found a Norwegian Cruise Line that gives passengers access to a racetrack.
The Cruise Line announced their new cruise ship, which will be called the Norwegian Joy, is going to be styled as a luxury resort style vacation, and will feature the first ever seafaring racetrack, amongst other world-class entertainment, fine dining and duty-free shopping.
Drivers will negotiate the Ferrari-branded electric-go-kart track over two levels, and can cater for 10 drivers at a time for about six minutes, while the 3850-passenger cruise ship tackles the waves of the great blue. A photographer will be waiting at the end of the track to capture racers at the finish line.
Passengers accommodated in the ‘upper-class’ decks will have laps of the track included in their cruise package, while other passengers will have to stump extra cash.

In addition to the go-kart track, the level will also be occupied by an open-air laser tag course, and other amenities include a racing simulator in the virtual world Galaxy Pavillion and multi-story waterslides.
The massive vessel also offers the largest shopping venue of the Norwegian’s fleet and 29 restaurant options for guests.
But if we’re honest, none of that sounds anywhere near as exciting as the go-kart track. We wonder what it’ll feel like driving over high-seas?
