MSC Cruises has revealed the “technologically advanced” on-board entertainment options that will appear on its upcoming ship, MSC Seascape.
When it launches in December, MSC Seascape will feature Robotron, described as a “thrilling amusement ride that offers the breathtaking thrill of a rollercoaster at sea combined with a personalised DJ music experience”.
Robotron is a robotic arm with an attached gondola, seating three guests, flying them 53 metres above the sea.
Riders will have a 360-degree view of the horizon as they hang over the edge of the deck and twist and turn.
Guests will be able to personalise their experience and “curate their musical journey with colours, music preferences and more”.
MSC Seascape will also have a virtual reality flight simulator, virtual reality motorbikes and racing simulation game MSC Formula Racer.
MSC Cruises creating a ‘new standard’
MSC Cruises SVP onboard revenues Brandon Briggs said: “We are excited to provide guests with endless high-tech entertainment options on board MSC Seascape to meet the desires of adrenaline-seekers looking to experience the latest thrills.
“Robotron, the first-ever robotic amusement ride to appear on a cruise ship, will create a new standard of fun with an immersive, customised ride experience, unique to each rider.
“Our additional entertainment options with elements of virtual reality, special effects and simulators will ensure unforgettable experiences that leave guests in awe.”
MSC Seascape will launch in New York on 7 December and then move to PortMiami for cruises in the Caribbean.
The ship, which recently completed sea trials ahead of its launch, will feature the “latest environmental technologies”, according to MSC, including selective catalytic reduction systems to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 90 per cent.
