I’ve never played the new Nintendo Wii, and I’ve only been on a cruise once (when I was 7), but the photos posted over at sister-blog Joystiq make it look like having a Wii on-board could be the funnest thing on the entire planet. Joystiq reports,
“Norwegian Cruise Line today announced it will offer guests a new service aboard their luxury liners: Nintendo Wii games. The system is already on all NCL America ships and will be rolled out to the rest of the fleet by next month. Each set-up comes equipped with Wii Sports, Wii Play, WarioWare: Smooth Moves, and Excite Truck (which, embarrassingly, forgot to pack its mini-games). Guests can play the Wii on large screens in each ship’s atrium and kids will have special kiosks so they don’t have to fight their grandparents for a turn.”
It’s definitely better than the lame entertainment typically found aboard a cruise ship. That’s for sure.
