What Will Future Cruise Ship Look Like?

We all notice the trend toward larger cruise ships but what will those cruise ships' design be? Here are some photos of prototypes that may never get built but are interesting to view.

What do you think of this design for a Yacht sized vessel?

For cruise passengers who enjoy smaller, more intimate cruise ships, this design by Yacht Island Design has everything from tiki huts, palm trees, and a waterfall coming out of a volcano. I found it on the cruise Feve

I like it!

I don't like any of them.

Yabba Dabba Doo. That's what that ship says to me. Flailing feet under the water providing propulsion.

OR they can offer the Viking on board experience and charge 99.99 and give you an oar to power the boat for an hour.

Maybe I should suggest this to Carnival. Wink

I certainly think it's a possibility that we could get at least one of those designs. I also think it could be possible that we get a 300,000 ton cruise ship someday. Back in the 70's when I was a kid 100,000 ton cruise ships were just a fantasy and now we're at 200,000 tons. 40 years from now cruises could be looking at Harmony of the Seas and call it small. I've learned over the years to "never say never".

Interesting. I'll not decide what I think until I see what they really do and how passengers rate them. Personally, I prefer the smaller ships.

After two Fantasy Class cruises ship and a Destiny, do like the smaller ships. At first I wasn't happy on the smaller ship but the size grew on me.

Where are the lifeboats?

I've got nothing against the larger ships, but it would be nice if they had them look like ships instead of "Fantasy Island" or skyscrapers-on-a-hull.

About the only one that piqued any interest to me was the first one, even though that looked more like a flying saucer than a shipSad
