Any WILD ideas for cruise ships and / or cruising

just wondering if anyone has any strange ideas of what ships in the future might offer, or, what you'd like to see offered.

Me?  I'd like to see some ships take their lower decks, and install RV slips. Especially on ALASKA cruises. This way, you could drive on in an RV, hook up to sewer, water, & electric, and use that as your cabin.   Take a 7/8/9 day voyage north from the states, drive off, and continue your adventure. Maybe as a caravan with some others.

I said wild ideas. Wink

Water skiing... using an extendable platform off the hull. LOL. I realize that just might kill someone so I have not put that one into the suggestion box.

That is not that wild of an idea. If you are going to Alaska, you can take the ferry from the northern end of Vancouver Island and bring along your RV for the trip. I'm not sure you can stay in it, but there is nothing to prevent you from checking your unit out while sailing. Then take your RV along the Alaska Highway... I know from experience that you will not regret the trip..... Only, watch out for mosquitos.... they have been known to carry away small pets and babies.....Wink

To Cruising CM...

Don't give Royal Carribean any ideas...... I heard you can surf on board and sky dive and ice skate......What's next?

Don't forget the boxing rings on the biggest ships. I was really surprised at that. Maybe the ships the ply the Caribbean can have glass bottom sections so you see into the ocean or portholes that that looking into the sea.

How about waterfalls that you can swim under and around..

One more and then I'll quit.. How about - now don't laugh - fishing off the ship? I once heard someone ask about that.

I took a Hurtegruten cruise through Norway and passengers did bring on their vehicles. The ship also carried mail and medicines to the people who lived in the small ports that we visited. The cars never slowed the schedule down. Before we had even docked at the port, the cars were lined up ready o exit. The ramps were lowered before we even reached the docks. It took the ship more time to bring on fresh fish and other supplies than it took for the cars to disembark the ship. By the way, this cruise line had THE best fresh food that we have ever eaten on a cruise ship.

Parasailing was another I thought would be a good idea... but I think someone is doing that now.

"The Stardancer" that was under Admiral Cruises used to be a fairy that had 2 levels for RV's to take them up to Alaska and back down. When RCCL acquired Admiral Cruise Lines the ship was converted in to The Viking Serenade. Her two levels of RV parking were turned into cabins and the "Crown Lounge" was added. She now sails as the Island Escape. She was the first ship I cruised on.

Some of the Luxury lines do have a "Marina" at the back of the ship for kayaks and wave runners.

I would like to see more "Neighborhoods" on ships, like a Family neighborhood and an adults only neighborhood with dining rooms, entertainment and bars. I think NCL is trying this will the single cabins having a "Living room" space with bar just for the single travelers.
