Norwegian Cruise Lines Reveals New Virtual Reality Experiences
If you live in Florida, you may have taken a cruise by now or may be thinking of taking one in the future. Many cruise ships go through Florida whether it’s the Norwegian Cruise Lines, Celebrity or Royal Caribbean. There are ups and downs to going on a cruise, but overall people tend to enjoy them and each of the cruise lines seem to be fairly similar to each other.
Norwegian Cruise Lines thinks it’s time for them to stand out more though. The company just let the world know about their newest cruise ship which is called ‘Joy’. It’s 1,069 feet and as of now it’s set to debut in Summer 2017. The ship cost the company about $1.4 billion to build.
Entertainment is going to be robust as the ship has a park (real park), hovercraft bumper cars, Galaxy Pavilion and a race car track.
It doesn’t matter what age you are, the Galaxy pavilion is sure to entertain all ages. It’s a futuristic arcade that has a fully immersive section dedicated to virtual reality named the Oculus Virtual Reality experience. It also has an interactive race car turned simulator, dark ride simulators and flight simulators.
Virtual reality has been making a lot of news recently and so this technology is something that people will be especially excited to try out. It shows that Norwegian Cruise Lines is paying attention to what’s going on in the world as they see where entertainment is going. The only bad thing about this is there will probably be long lines to get in the Galaxy Pavilion as lots of people on the ship will want to try their virtual reality experience.
If you’re not wanting to be entertained on the ship, then you can still have a nice time as there are going to be lots of good food options, very nice suites and obviously some amazing stops as the cruise visits different countries.
Norwegian Cruise Lines has officially taken the cruise experience to the next level. Now, let’s see if other cruise lines follow in their footsteps.
