Cruises in the future..


Recommended Posts

After reading about the eco friendly cruises that are rolling out, it's nice to see the future is looking bright. I wonder what far fetched futuristic ideas that we would like to see onboard in the future.

@LukeJ Cruses ships seem to be advancing everyday! They offer so many amenities, it's hard to think of anything else that could be added honestly. Off the top of my head I'm thinking a make it yourself, Melting Pot style restaurant could be so fun! Anything in the fondue category could be a hit. I wouldn't be surprised if I'm missing a ship that already offers a dining experience like this onboard.

I am very interested in technology and engineering. I love the designs and the thinking behind the present cruises as it is. So just to have a think about future cruises does excite me. Basic ideas I believe like having a chip in your arm open your doors would be cool. Drones with your deliveries maybe, right to your stateroom. Create your own music file for your room.

@LukeJ I also view the future of cruising as bright and successful, but I really hope the ships don't keep getting bigger! The size we are at now seems big enough. In terms of chips opening doors, we are on our way to that. That's something I wouldn't participate in. I wouldn't participate in the micro chip idea at all as a regular form of payment or identification either. Drones down the hallways would be fun but possibly hazardous because of the limited space. The hallways are so narrow onboard! It can be hard when a scooter is crossing for sure. A music playlist for your room is ingenious! That should already be a thing! I usually just play it on speaker on my phone. I would love a pool with music playing underwater like the Hard Rock has. That would be so easy to do! I'm going to think of more futuristic additions and get back to you on this.

@LukeJ A patent sounds like a great idea for those excellent, one-of-a-kind experiences. It's would be so cool to great an ingenious idea that others loved so much they were willing to pay a royalty to replicate. That's one incredible idea! I would love to see a vending machine with drinks onboard. It could be such a great addition to a ship, and the line could eliminate one bar tender per ship. I could see this becoming very popular out by the pool. Speaking of out by the pool, I would love some misters. Some misters near the loungers would be so fabulous. Can you imagine the competition for pool loungers if misters were thrown into the mix? I'm sure a scooter only elevator could be a nice thought too. A scooter only hallway could be great. A wider hallway for guests with mobility challenges. Imagine this, a moving walkway for those needing assistance with mobility. The downside could be that guests fake a disability to receive these perks. That would be a shame, but unfortunately, it wouldn't surprise me.

What a career to have a job where you can come up with ideas like this to improve cruises. It would be the best. How about speakers under the water at the pool so you can hear songs as you swim. Or a dryer corridor you walk through and it dries you so you're nice and dry before commencing with your next activity.

How about a massive TV on the front of the ship for live sports. It can rise from the deck, and allow everyone to chill outside while watching the football etc.. or a massive slide from the top of the cruise into the sea.

@LukeJ I vote drier corridor! That's genius. Can you imagine just walking through this corridor post-pool into the buffet area? How glorious would this be? I love this idea. The ships could also use a better system to dry the floors of the entryways post-pool. Guests walk in all wet and make the floors all slippery. It's hazardous. Self dying floors could be excellent. I'm not sure how cruise lines could achieve this but it would be a game changer for cruise ships.

@PaulB that would be a marvelous invention. I can imagine lying in the pool, drink in hand watching a game of sorts. Life would seem perfect then. You would still have the views that surrounds you, for a quick glance to survey the beauty, and go back to the game. @3Sisters yeah that would also work, I'd have no idea how it could work. Maybe it would have very small breathable holes in the floor and it can allow any moisture to sleep through.
