We wanted to issue a word of warning regarding the go cart attraction on the Norwegian Bliss cruise ship. Passengers are reporting that the carts go extremely fast for such a confined area, up to 30 miles per hour, and can cause quite a collision when they bump into each other.
Passengers also report that the carts are hard to control and that the track often has little or no supervision.
On the company’s promotional video for the go carts it boast that they “even have turbo buttons,” as if going 30 miles per hour on a go cart track on a cruise ship were not fast enough.
In the push to bring more and more extreme activities to cruise ships, cruise companies are showing that they are truly willing to push the bounds. These go carts seem to present a real hazard, and it seems that it is only a matter of time before someone gets seriously hurt or killed.
