What is unique about this ship?
For thrill seekers, the top-deck track lets riders scoot along at up to 30 mph on electric vehicles around 15 turns on two levels on nearly 1,000 feet of track. There is also a laser-tag course, themed like an abandoned space station right out of the movie Alien onboard too. Both experiences are not included in the price of your cruise, there will be an additional fee onboard.
The Aqua Park aboard has no extra cost to enjoy. There are two slides including the 360-foot tandem tube slide called the Aqua Racer and the Ocean Loops slide, a drop slide that sends riders out over the side of the ship in a more extreme manner than ever before on a Norwegian ship.
Broadway goes to sea with the stage production of Jersey Boys. Guest can travel back to Liverpool at the Cavern Club, inspired by the place where the Beatles played in the 60’s.
