Cruise passengers looking for a real ocean drive will have to look further than South Beach. Norwegian Cruise Line's new Norwegian Joy, a ship the Doral, Fla.-based cruise line is building to sail in China, will be the first ever to feature a racetrack -- from Ferrari, no less.
That's in partnership with Scuderia Ferrari Watches in this case, which is joining forces with NCL to build its first branded race track. The two-floor track will span two decks at the top of the ship and have space for up to 10 racers at a time on electric go-karts.
Guests staying in Norwegian Joy's higher-end The Haven and Concierge class rooms will get complimentary rides with their bookings. The 3,850-passenger Joy will start sailing from Shanghai on June 27 and also homeport in Tianjin. Other stand-out features will include an open-air laser tag course, hovercraft bumper cars, multi-story water slides and the cruise line's largest-ever upscale shopping venue.
