Huge Waterpark, Ninja Turtles coming to Norwegian Escape
Cruise News – Dec. 19, 2014
In an announcement that may cause an adrenaline rush for active adults and kids alike, Norwegian Cruise Line said its newest ship, Norwegian Escape, will have the largest ropes course at sea, the largest aqua park at sea, and a miniature golf course themed on Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
“Building on the tremendous success of our Breakaway-class ships, we are delivering bigger thrills and more action-packed activities for our largest ship to date,” said Drew Madsen, the line’s president and COO.
When the new ship debuts next November on Caribbean cruises from Miami, passengers will find a three-story, elevated ropes course that spans the entire length of the ship and offers 99 challenges — including two planks and zip tracks that let you soar through the air, the longest track bringing guests out over the side of the ship (all while wearing a harness). There’s also a tamer kiddie course.
Norwegian Escape‘s Aqua Park will feature four multistory slides including a tandem Aqua Racer slide. There’s also a tamer Kids’ Aqua Park, with various spray, dump, and otherwise get-wet features.
The nine-hole mini-golf course will be part of an expansive sports complex that will also include a full-size basketball court and a new bocce ball court, a first for the line.
The Splash Academy kids’ program will feature Nickelodeon-themed activities and an enhanced circus activities program. The ship will also be home to Norwegian’s first nursery, providing childcare services for ages 6 months to 3 years.
