The modern day cruise liners are more like floating resort cities that offer every bit of fun you can have on land. The skyscraper-sized vessels pack all forms of entertainment possible for its paying customers that make them forget they are floating in the middle of the sea, and we all know that cruise lines go to exceptional lengths to achieve that. But, Norwegian Cruise Line’s brand new ship Norwegian Joy has taken onboard attraction to a whole new level. The Norwegian Joy, designed specifically for the Chinese market, has a Ferrari themed race track on the ship.
Norwegian Cruise Lines has teamed up with Ferrari, Scuderia Ferrari Watches to be precise, to put a go-kart track on its cruise ship. Designed to accommodate 10 karts on its bi-level looping race course, the track will feature the signature Ferrari red along with the company’s branding. The brand will also install a watch store next door to it on the ship. Guests who stay in the higher-end cabins of The Haven and Concierge class will be given complimentary rides, while others will pay to ride the unique feature. The Norwegian Joy’s Ferrari-branded track will be the first automotive race track at sea. The 3,850-passenger vessel, which is headed to China, was built at Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany and recently performed sea trials in the North Sea.
