The Daisy Cruiser is a large cruise ship belonging to Princess Daisy that first appeared in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! as a racecourse in the Flower Cup. The cruiser has since then appeared in many spinoff titles, most noticeably as Daisy's personal stadium in Mario Super Sluggers. The cruiser can also be seen sailing past and to various areas in the Mario series.
 Mario Kart series
 Mario Kart: Double Dash!!
The cruiser has various floors, and a giant logo of Daisy's head on the sides. The cruiser also has a dining room with moving tables that act as obstacles for the player, a large pool that has a picture of Princess Daisy at the bottom, and a set of hallways. Also included is a basement leading to a giant air vent, and various flower motifs throughout the cruiser's design. Piantas can be seen in the cruiser as well, waving at the players.
 Track Layout
The player start out in the top deck where there is a turn right that leads into a straight metal road that has item boxes moving left and right, unlike stationary item boxes. After the item boxes is staircase left that leads into a circular pool with Daisy's picture in it on the right of the track. The road is big there, but it is possible to fall into the pool if players aren't careful.
After the pool is another winding metal staircase, that also leads downhill and into the left. After a left turn, there is a straight aisle that leads directly to the cruiser's dining room. The tables in this room slide from left to right, slowing down the player getting stuck in the tables. Item boxes are also found sliding left and right, just like the tables.
After the dining room is a 90 degree turn right, and another 90 degree turn left. The player will see item boxes and a hole to the right. The player takes the item box route and after that, turns a 90 degree turn left and another turn right, which leads outside again. The area is very narrow just after exiting the room and dodging hazards in this area may prove to be difficult. After the narrow path, racers reach the bow of the ship, where the track forms a U-turn in it to the right and then bending into another straight path. In one-screen mode only, the player may bump into hanging life-savers, but it doesn't have any effect on the player's speed. There is a straight staircase that leads uphill and after, the deck with the finish line in it. After the finish line is the start of the course again, as well as another lap.
There is a very narrow short cut to the right of the swimming pool, but taking such path doesn't save any time and the player has a greater chance of falling into the water than the latter route.
Another shortcut is just after the dining room, the hole to the right of the item box path. The player may fall in the hole, into the cellar of the cruiser at the bottom. The player may receive a Double Item Box, plus shot out of the orange pipe that leads to the bow area, skipping the narrow path and the area before it.
 Official Descriptions
 Course Appearances
The Daisy Cruiser can be seen sailing in the background of the following levels:
 Mario Kart 7
Daisy Cruiser appears as a retro course in Mario Kart 7 as the third course in the Leaf Cup. Right after the starting line, instead of being forced to head right, one can now drive through the once-blocked left path. One can also drive through the swimming pool, where there is a ramp to trick off of. Also noticeable is that all of the Piantas have been replaced with Miis. The banquet room now has less tables. As well, the shortcut under the floor has become an aquarium, being filled with water, having Miis on the sidelines watching, and having Clampies that carry items inside. The cannon was also ridden of, instead allowing the player to drive through it normally.
 Mario Super Sluggers
The Daisy Cruiser returns once again in the game Mario Super Sluggers as Daisy's personal baseball stadium. It features tables around the outfield at day-time, similar to how the dining room of the past Daisy Cruiser included tables. Unlike the previous tables, these break when the ball is hit or thrown at them. At night, Cheep Cheeps bounce around the outfield in place of the tables. In the middle of night-play Gooper Blooper appears and tilts the stadium to either the right or left side, causing the whole area to slant in either direction. Gooper Blooper also plays a major part in the Daisy Cruiser's minigame, Blooper Baserun. This stadium's walls are very low, making it easy for the players to make a ground rule double.
Like before the Daisy Cruiser is completely based around Daisy's personal style, but it is almost completely reshaped and much larger; as such it includes many new floors. The docking area for the cruiser in the Baseball Kingdom includes a lighthouse, which is very similar to the lighthouse seen at the Daisy Circuit from Mario Kart Wii. The dock also includes a canopy walkway at the entrance. Notable are two statues near the play-field of the Cruiser. These statues are of Daisy. In Challenge Mode, the Daisy Cruiser is where everyone comes at the end of the day to celebrate their victories. Characters are seen eating treats like ice cream and cake in the ship's dining room before the start of the fireworks show.
This locale is the only unlockable stadium in Mario Super Sluggers that can be played in both day and night. Additionally, it is also the host of the Secret Shop in Challenge Mode, but only at night and if the team has obtained the Secret Shop Pass.
