You? A pop star? Of course you can do it. It's all in the equipment, right? Do you really think Britney can sing?

Costa Cruises knows you want to try so it has outfitted its newest ship, the Costa Pacifica, with what it is calling the industry’s first onboard recording studio for passengers.

For about $50 an hour, passengers can sift through a library of 400 songs, then hit the sound booth and record up to three tunes. At the end of the cruise, you get a CD of your efforts.

Sounds like it'll just be recorded karaoke? Costa says that the studio comes with high-tech equipment and a sound engineer, which promises to give you every advantage enjoyed by those pop stars you love to trash. You know. The ones who, unlike you, can't sing.
