Which Cruise Ship Has Roller Coaster?

By Anna Duncan

Cruise ships are known for their luxurious amenities, such as pools, spas, and lounges. But what about a more thrilling activity?

Some cruise ships now boast a roller coaster on board. Yes, you read that correctly—a roller coaster!

The first cruise ship to feature a roller coaster was the Norwegian Joy, which launched in 2017. The two-level track runs through the middle of the ship and offers stunning views of the open seas. Riders must be at least 48 inches tall and weigh between 44 and 300 pounds to enjoy this unique experience.

The roller coaster on the Norwegian Joy is named the “Galaxy Pavilion” and offers three different tracks for riders to choose from. The longest track is nearly 800 feet long with tight turns, steep drops, and a loop that will make you scream with delight. All three tracks feature special effects that riders can enjoy while they’re soaring through the air.

The Norwegian Joy isn’t alone in offering this thrilling experience. Royal Caribbean recently added a roller coaster to its Quantum of the Seas vessel called “The Blaster”. This ride features an eye-catching loop, sharp turns, and a series of drops that will get your heart racing.

Rides on both these vessels are incredibly popular amongst passengers. It provides an opportunity to do something out of the ordinary while on vacation—and it can be enjoyed by both adults and children alike.
