Norwegian Joy is currently under construction at Meyer Werft in Papenburg, Germany and will be designed for 3,900 guests. The ship’s racetrack will be located on the ship’s upper decks, 18 and 19, and will be equipped with 20 karts, a viewing platform, covered pit lane, workshop, storage room, timing system, floodlights and a track that reaches 230 meters in length. This prestigious project represents a further milestone in the successful company history. With steel construction company B. Levermann GmbH, located in Neuenrade, a competent partner out of the region is also involved.

RiMO Supply’s electrically powered race karts utilize the latest generation of technology to ensure optimal usage under the unique conditions of intensified UV and saltwater exposure that exist onboard a cruise ship. All karts are being constructed according to the highest international standards and the track’s functionality is equal to any high class land-based karting facility – with the addition of an incredible view at 60m height.

The growing popularity and importance of electronic technology can be noticed in the karting sector as more and more companies opt to use this environmentally friendly and low-maintenance technology. RiMO experts are convinced that electric powered vehicles are the future in kart sports.

“We are proud to contribute our years of experience to such an outstanding project,” said Peter Bertram, owner and CEO of RiMO Germany Group.

“The electronically controlled engine sound as well as the non-existent exhausts are sure to meet cruise passengers’ expectations of a relaxed but varied and unique ride. Cruise ship passengers of nearly every age should be excited to have the opportunity to enjoy this one-of-a-kind amusement ride found only on Norwegian Joy.”

Home porting in Shanghai & Tianjin (Beijing), Norwegian Joy was designed by the team at Norwegian Cruise Line to provide First Class at Sea experiences specifically for the Chinese traveler, with onboard amenities that cater to the unique vacation desires of Chinese guests.
