Question "Is there an elevator that will take me forward to aft"?

Recommended Posts

It depends on which way the arrows are pointing, it may also take you port to starboard.

This could evolve into a list of lame cruise ship comic jokes.

 

Does the crew sleep onboard?

On a few cruises we could use an elevator like that.

 

After 4 - 5 hours of walking around a sunny hot Caribbean port, a nice lunch and a few drinks before taking that walk from a mid ships elevator to an aft cabin becomes the long corridor of death..

Do these stairs go up or down?

Technology is catching up. Who would of thought Willy Wonka was a genius before his time.

 

PEOPLE LAUGHED WHEN ThyssenKrupp, a company synonymous with elevators, announced it was developing one that goes every which way. Who'd ever heard of such a thing? Everyone knows elevators go just two directions: Up and down. Some took to calling it the  Wonkavator, after Willy Wonka’s wacky lift that goes sideways, slantways, and longways.

"There were some doubts," company CEO Patrick Bass says with just a bit of understatement.

Put aside your doubts. After three years of work, the company is testing the Multi in a German tower and finalizing the safety certification. This crazy contraption zooms up, down, left, right, and diagonally. ThyssenKrupp just sold the first Multi to a residential building under construction in Berlin, and expects to sell them to other developers soon, will cruise line architects  be next.

The future of elevators is now the present, and it's pretty damned wild.

How come the microwave in my cabin won't work?

This is like the Christmas Truce of 1914

That's a great (and true) story.  I have used it often.
