Default The Cruise Ship of the Future

Judy and I were kidding around about where the cruise lines go after the mega ships reach their limit. We think the future lies in aft cabins. Picture the entire superstructure positioned athwart ship.

I put my concept of a first generation design in the personal gallery, under This and That.

Baby's got back.

I'm not as proficient in photo configuring, as you are Keith, but I envision something around 300,000 GRT with even more aft/stern balcony cabins, giant shopping areas, food venues and a huge water park. In other words, the "Mall of America at Sea".

Take care,
Mike

Mike, that's what Judy said, climbing wall the size of Everest, shops in the forward areas, etc. You Minnesotans could do it!

There would be no ports of call, non stop shopping on board. Think of the money they'll make.

Keith your photo reminds me of the Golden Princess except instead of a disco on top it's aft cabins. Yikes BJ,,, a see thru floor? ,,,,now that would be scarey <bg> But like the old saying,,,, If you build it they will come,,,,Who knows what they will come up with next,,,,kinda like that old show,,,Twilight Zone,,,<bg>

OK, I'm not getting this "mall at sea" thing.

If I want to go to the mall, I just drive there and do my shopping.

I go on a cruise to get away from all that!! Whatever happened to fun "in the sun"?!
