Is THIS the future of cruise ship travel? Giant luxury liner flies through the SKY
Cruise holidays have rapidly changed over the past century as technology has allowed for radical developments.
Ships are now built to offer more luxury than ever, with many cruise lines pushing the boundaries when it comes to new features on board.
From race tracks to rollercoasters, skydiving and mega slides, cruise ships in 2017 are a lesson in entertainment.
But the future of cruise ship travel could be even more mind-blowing.
Shared on Reddit, one image shows the striking concept of a flying cruise ship.
The blip-like vessel is shown soaring over mountains and through clouds, with guests wandering on top of it.
A pool is set on the surface, set by deck chairs and green space up the back.
The incredible cruise ship-plane hybrid has thoroughly impressed the internet.
Also shared on Imgur, the image has been viewed over one million times, with hundreds of comments.
One user wrote: “We shall call it… The Flytanic!” while another thought it should be called the “Skytanic”.
Another viewer wrote: “I love these, hope they become a thing at some point.”
One Reddit user questioned what would happen if the “ship” hit turbulence, while another joked it would creat a “free wave pool”.
Though the concept might seem inconceivable, flying cruise ships could exist in the future.
One company is testing out a design called the Aeroscaft, a blimp-like airship that lifts off like a helium-filled balloon.
