My 14 year old Grandson, is interested in cooking, My son and I love to cook, I think with proper support maybe we can learn techniques and menus that work. While he would enjoy the go carts, putting together an exceptional meal also works. At least for me.

I understand the new Carnival Panorama has a whole cooking area for passengers. Check out their video. My DH enjoys the cooking classes and the food pairing when done in smaller groups.

As more high tech becomes available there will be endless options provided by the cruiselines. Maybe we can take a cruise one day through VR and not have leave home!

No thanks. I ‘d rather take a cruise and come home via the VR.

The lazy river sounds great, but I don't think it would become a reality. Even if it wrapped around the entire ship, it would become quickly clogged with people with no intention to get out anytime soon, with a line stretching down to deck 1. The more people in line or on the attraction is that many people not spending money.

The current attractions only take a few minutes to cycle through.

Good ideas with the laser and VR golf and skeet shooting. I don't think the skeet shooting would work though - too many anti gun people that would cause headaches (I realize that not every anti-gun person is nor an extremist, but there are enough of them to cause a headache for the lines).

Unless of course the lazy river had a float by bar to pick up refreshments

True, but then I would be one of the masses never getting out!

My office campus has a tenant rec center that has a golf simulator. It is very popular, it has all of the PGA courses to "play" on and it also includes various other games such as zombie dodge ball and soccer, hockey etc.. I think that would be something easy to put on a ship.. we only have one, but you could do several bays with the same system and multiple people could play what they wanted.
