If you like Roundels not on the Underground, from next March you can experience Roundels on sea. London Underground becomes the inspiration for part of Disney's new cruise ship - the Disney Fantasy. Disney Parks blog said: "The Tube at Europa, the adult entertainment district on the Disney Fantasy, transports guests to a vibrant metropolitan club via the London Underground." Not literally via the underground but you know what they mean.
"Guests “Mind the Gap” as they walk across a Tube route map, lounge among mod furniture, pose by a red English phone booth, dance atop an illuminated Union Jack dance floor and enjoy cocktails at a bar inspired by Big Ben and London’s many train stations."
The £560million Disney Fantasy, will carry 4,000 passengers, on week-long Caribbean cruises from Florida.
The mind boggles as I try to picture Disney's conception of cocktails inspired by "London's many train stations". Maybe they'll include:
"The King's Cross St Pancras - a royal combination of spirits, which we can't promise will aid your digestion but will tickle your tastebuds".
"The Finchley Road and Frognal - this green delight inspired by The Princess and The Frog would make the perfect toast for Tiana and Naveen's wedding".
"The Cockfosters - based on a beer popular with the English, this will have you dancing the Hokey Cokey in no time"
"Euston - you'll have 'no problem' drinking this atmospheric cocktail which will rocket you into another space"
Any more thoughts most welcome!
