Passengers on new MSC cruise liner set for high-octane Robotron ride

The kind of robotic technology seen at theme park rides worldwide will soon be available to cruise passengers out at sea

A robotic-arm thrill ride is set to launch on board Seascape, the new ship from the world’s number three cruise company, MSC.

The high-tech ride, Robotron, will be situated on deck, and will take passengers on a spin that will allow them to experience panoramic ocean views from a whole new perspective. Not only will the robotic-arm spin, twist, and suspend the riders 53-metres above the ocean over the edge of the deck, and above the cruise liner’s pool, guests can also choose the intensity of the ride before they launch – including whether or not to turn upside down.

Ride personalisation continues with the option for onboard thrillseekers to choose their own music playlist and the animations they would like to see on the giant screen. A colourful light display accompanies the high-octane ride.

The new ship Seascape is scheduled to take its maiden voyage from Rome, Italy, to New York, where its naming ceremony will be held on 7 December. From New York, the cruise liner will set off for Miami and begin its Caribbean itineraries.

“We are thrilled to provide our guests with ground-breaking, immersive entertainment,” said Brandon Briggs, SVP onboard revenues at MSC Cruises. “For the launch of MSC Seascape, we are truly pushing the envelope by opening the first-ever robotic thrill ride onboard a cruise ship.”
