So, the States will be getting a Norwegian ship with go carts. And, for Alaskan cruises to boot

^ Norwegian ships have some of the most amazing looking features, and shows at sea... But dear god I can't stand the way the ships look. (Design wise... not art wise) But. That's just my opinion.

I'm waiting on the one with a legit amusement park area complete with a coaster. It's coming, I just know it is. MSC toyed with a drop tower idea for one of their new ships.

^ Same. I'm waiting for a coaster, and drop tower on a cruise ship. It's going to happen. It is just a matter of time.

"Introducing the worlds first Roller Coaster At Sea!"

I'm betting Carnival or Royal will be the first to jump on board.

Speaking of Klassy Kruise... Just came across this on Yahoo News.

Good Morning America • MORGAN WINSOR • 21 hours ago
An 8-year-old girl died Saturday after falling from one deck in a cruise ship's interior atrium to a lower deck, officials said.

The girl, whose name has not been released, fell on the Carnival Glory cruise ship while it was docked at the Dante B. Fascell Port of Miami on Saturday morning. Miami Fire Rescue personnel responded to the scene around 8:15 a.m. ET and provided emergency care to the child, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department.

The girl was subsequently taken to the nearby Ryder Trauma Center, where she died from her injuries, police said.

Erika Benitez of Miami-Dade Fire Rescue told ABC News the girl was in critical condition when she arrived at the hospital.

It's unclear what led the child to fall. Homicide detectives are investigating the incident, police said.

Carnival Cruise Lines said the the ship's command immediately contacted police after she fell and transported her to the ship's medical center.

“Our most heartfelt care and concern is with the family at this very difficult time.” Carnival Cruise Lines spokesperson Jennifer de la Cruz said in a statement Saturday.

I still can't think of anything worse than going on family vacation, and returning home with one less family member. :(

Thoughts are with her family.

Just booked a cruise that goes to Cuba plus stays overnight there! My fiance really wanted to go and it's very hard to just "go" there. You have to do a certain amount of hours for education but with staying overnight I'm sure it will be fine!
