Inside the new cruise ship launching next year with three-level go-kart track, infinity pools and food courts

A NEW cruise ship is launching next year – with a three-level go-karting track onboard.

The new Norwegian Viva ship will also have infinity pools overlooking the ocean and an open-air food court onboard.

The 3,219 passenger ship, launching in December 2023, will have a range of rooms including 107 luxury suites in the private The Haven area.

Guests at The Haven will be able to have private access to a sun deck, outdoor spa and infinity pool.

The rest of the guests can explore the rest of the ship, which includes the three-level go-karting track, Viva Speedway, where up to 15 drivers can race to be the winner.

Rides including The Drop, a 10-story tall dry slide, and The Rush, a dueling slide, both which are already on the Prima cruise ship, will also be onboard.

Crazy golf, flying theatres, and pub darts will all be part of the cruise experience along with an onboard aqua park.

There are also more than 20 dining venues, including the Indulge Food Hall with 11 cuisines such as the Texan Smokehouse, Mexican restaurant Los Lobos or the Italian Onda by Scarpetta

Norwegian Cruise Line CEO Harry Sommer told Travel + Leisure: "The big focus here is on itineraries. On Viva, we're gonna notch it up.

"We're doing, basically, a tour of all the Mediterranean: Lisbon, Ibiza, Palma, Barcelona, Florence, Rome, Naples, Sicily, Dubrovnik, Venice, Santorini, Mykonos, Athens, Istanbul — and that's like a third of the ports we're visiting."

P&O revealed their new £700m Iona cruise ship which launched last year, with infinity pools and fancy restaurants onboard.
