This Cruise Ship Will Feature a Two-Level Go-Kart Track. (Mental Floss, 4/8/2016)
The Norwegian Joy, slated to launch from China next summer, will offer passengers more than just floating go-kart races. Other planned amenities include simulator rides, a hovercraft bumper car arena, and a 360-foot water slide. For cruisers more interested in leisure than non-stop stimulation, there will also be areas specifically designed to help them unwind. In a section called "The Haven," guests willing to pay a little extra will be granted access to a partially covered courtyard, upscale dining facilities, and a full-time butler.Related reading:
