Cruise Ship

7 Craziest Cruise Ship Experiences

| Staff Report |

The time spent on a cruise ship can make for some of the craziest stories and experiences that will stay with you for a lifetime. After all, you don’t want to make it just another plain old boring trip from point A to point B, do you? Get inspired by what’s out there! Here are some ideas:

1. Casinos

The arcade-like sounds of slot machines, chips being splashed around, and people either cursing their bad luck or cheering as they win big, magical moments like these are what the casino experience is made of. Want to crank it up a notch? Try playing Gates of Bitcasino! It’s the ultimate experience with all the classic casino elements, but when you need a bit of a breather, you can go up on deck to breathe in some fresh sea air. Brilliant!

2. Planetariums

Observing a planetary constellation is quite intriguing all by itself, but what if you were to do it on a cruise ship? It’s like stepping into a theater with giant glittery orbs that teaches you valuable things about how our universe is made. It’s also a mighty fine way to keep the kids busy all while giving them an experience that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

3. Racing

Do you consider yourself an adrenaline junkie? How about going at the speed of light and navigating a racetrack atop a cruise ship? Crazy indeed, but that’s how it goes! Simply climb into the driver’s seat, strap on the seatbelt, get the engine running, and away you go. You can make it as casual or as competitive as you’d like.

4. Fire juggling shows

There’s a wide range of things a talented performer can do with fire. Whether it be juggling, fire eating, poi spinning, body burning illusions, object manipulation, baton twirling, or other dangerous stunts and circus tricks, playing with fire is a proven crowd-pleaser. As long as fire safety precautions are taken into account and the performer is trained and experienced in what they do, you won’t have to fear for anyone’s safety. Just make sure to not try any of it at home!

5. Interactive floors

What better way to make your cruise come alive than to experience interactive walls and floors? Bring your kids onto one of these virtual platforms and watch it adapt as you step around. It can be an artsy experience or something more adrenaline-inducing such as having to avoid enemies or projectiles as they come at you.

6. Observation rides

There’s no better way to observe the stunning panorama than participating in one of the observation rides in a glass-enclosed capsule. They come in various sizes, shapes, and varieties, but the one thing they all have in common is that they’re attached to a mechanical arm that towers above the sea level and gives you a 360-degree view of its surroundings.

7. Aqua shows

The sea lends itself perfectly to a climactic show involving seals jumping through hoops, feeding dangerous marine mammals, and the list goes on. As long as the show is executed by trained industry professionals, no animals will be harmed and no guests will be eaten, but you will be flabbergasted for sure!


A cruise ship experience can be as tame or adrenaline-inducing as you want it to. So what’s your appetite for destruction?
