The blimp ride idea might sink. However can't wait to zip right on the ship. Now that will be awesome.

I sort of liked the idea then I saw the word "tethered" That is how they do balloon rides at the local balloon festivals. Sort of like getting on a plane to taxi to the end of the runway.....goes nowhere.

Of course, this is IMHO, You take a blimp and fill it with hydrogen or helium. One will blow you up and the other will just make you talk funny. Myself, I am big enough, if you were to right GOODYEAR on my side, everyone would want to know what big Sporting Event I was enroute to. Blimps were an early form of transportation and very dangerous. You know? Like the Hediburg or whatever her name was. This is just a bad idea all the way around. You would not go rollerskating in a buffalo herd, would you? (thee is a song in there somewhere) What next? Sking behind the ship, trolling for sharks or backarudas? As our beloved Trip would say. This would make me spit nickles. That all from the peanut gallery. I am off like a prom dress.

They should ditch the blimp idea and do a water tube the takes you through the ship stopping on each deck. Think about it you can start on Lido deck and take the watertube all the way down to Main deck. Las Vegas has a water tube that goes through a shark tank. But keeping sharks alive on a cruise ship might be to much work. RCL call me I have lots of ideas.
