Norwegian Cruise Line, in partnership with Sony Pictures Television and TimePlay Inc., will launch the Wheel of Fortune Interactive game show on 16 of its cruise ships by spring 2024.

The Wheel of Fortune Interactive game show is all set to debut aboard Norwegian Escape, promising passengers an exhilarating entertainment experience on the high seas. Powered by TimePlay’s groundbreaking interactive technology, the game show invites guests to either watch or actively participate from their mobile devices.

Passengers can test their skills and compete against fellow cruisers in real time, vying for a coveted spot on the live leaderboard or a chance to become a contestant on the actual stage.

“We are committed to providing our guests with quality entertainment across their cruise journey,” said Craig Steyn, Norwegian Cruise Line’s VP of Onboard Revenue Operations.

“Our guests will now have the chance to be part of the iconic, Emmy Award-winning Wheel of Fortune game show. Not only will it bring the same excitement from the TV classic, but guests will also have the opportunity to play along for a chance to win some great prizes along the way, including a free cruise!” enthused Steyn in a press release.

Wheel of Fortune Interactive will be offered on 16 NCL ships

The Wheel of Fortune Interactive game show is set to elevate NCL’s onboard entertainment experience, providing passengers with an array of prizes. After its premiere on Norwegian Escape, the interactive game show will be rolled out across 15 additional vessels, including Norwegian Bliss, Breakaway, Dawn, Encore, Epic, Gem, Getaway, Jade, Jewel, Joy, Pearl, Sky, Spirit, Star, and Sun.

“When you combine a powerful brand like Wheel of Fortune with full audience participation, it takes entertainment and engagement to new heights. We are excited to roll out this new innovative experience on NCL’s fleet,” said Aaron Silverberg, SVP of Entertainment at TimePlay.

Any inside information as to when Wheel of Fortune will be available on the Norwegian Joy? I'm assuming they will make this change during the current dry dock period. I called Norwegian but they wouldn't confirm or deny. We are traveling on the Joy on 3/16/24 and are hoping it will onboard.

Hi Michael, I wish I had a definite answer for you, but NCL hasn't released this info yet. Wheel of Fortune isn't a permanent fixture that requires a dry dock to install, but the company did say it would be on the Joy by spring, so it would make sense to debut it along with the other changes. Joy comes out of dry dock mid-month, so I'd advise checking roll calls for her first post-refurbishment cruise and ask the cruisers on board if the game show is up and running. Enjoy your cruise!
