Norwegian Bliss Will Have a Two-Level Race Track

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 14, 2017

Norwegian Cruise Line has announced the new features on its under-construction Norwegian Bliss ship, with one major party piece: a two-level racetrack.

The ship, which will be sailing to the Caribbean with voyages to the Mexican Riviera beginning in June 2018, will have the largest competitive race track at sea at nearly 1,000 feet.

The track’s electric cars will drive up to 30 miles an hour, with a “turbo boost” available on every lap. Even better? The electric cars run silently, with race car sounds piped in through speakers in the car’s headrest.

The track joins other unique amenities like an open-air laser tag course, along with an aqua park and a sundeck with two pools and six infinity hot tubs, among other features.

“Norwegian Bliss will no doubt be our most incredible ship to date,” said Norwegian President and CEO Andy Stuart. “We have elevated Norwegian Bliss’s onboard experience to new heights, bringing the best features from across our fleet plus exciting new first-at-sea activities like the largest race track and new dining concepts to create the ultimate cruising experience.”

Among the new food and beverage options will be the A-List Bar, named for Stuart, and The Cellars, a Michael Mondavi Family Wine Bar with a list of 35 wines.
