Default Design a ship.....

With ships getting bigger and bigger, with bowing alleys, rock climbing walls, and surfing at sea, is there something you would like to see on a ship, that designers have not thought of yet? What do you see as maybe, wasted space at sea?

Somethings come and go, like the Cigar Rooms...How long will the barbers or the botox fad last? How about that sea park..will that last, or be changed to a money making area? That space could be used for ______!

Fill in the blank, serious, & outrageous ideas welcome!

Honestly, people will always want to look their best for formal nights, so the spa services will stay. What else could I see on a ship? Good question. So much has been done with ships that it is hard to come up with unique ideas. All I know is they need to come up with more activities to offer.

I have done a thread in the past called "build your own cruise line" and I stated there that a roller coaster or Fair type rides would be fun. I love Princess's learn at Sea program and would like to see Carnival implement it. How cool would it be to be able to take scuba lessons, get certified and have your first big scuba trip at one of the great Islands in the Caribbean?

I would like to see a few small snack type restaurants somewhere else then the Lido deck. I think they would be cool to have on deck 6-7 near the Casino.

I think the bowling Alley would be cool too. I am going to have to try it one of these days, guess I'll have to go NCL unless Carnival puts one on an upcoming ship.

Royal Caribbean does have a Scuba Diving program on board that even allows PADI Open Water Certification. The other lines should follow suit on this. One thing I do not understand is why they haven't added a dinner theater yet. They could easily do it with the addition on just a small amount of staff.

roller coaster is definately the first crazy thing I thought of...
but hey I hear some other really good idea such as.... lazy river, bigger pool. ( I would love a pool you could just walk into instead of steps )

how about a dolphin show... I love dolphins I think that would be fun to sit and watch....

I love the idea of the lazy river, and a bigger pool. I would like to be able to take scuba classes as well, and my daughter and I think a mystery dinner night would be so fun!!!!
