Oasis of the Seas Dry Dock

New photos have been released from Royal Caribbean showing the huge new slides being installed during the 63-day upgrade. The ship is undergoing a major $165 million amplification which is adding several new features and enhancements to make one of the world’s largest cruise ships better than ever!

In the photos below we get to see the new trip of waterslides called The Perfect Storm. These series of water slides will offer three different thrills from Typhoon, Cyclone, and Supercell. As you can see, each one is different and it’s best to just try them all to find out which one is the best!

Also being installed is the huge 10-story high Ultimate Abyss slide. This is not a water slide but no doubt offers a major thrill as it twists and turns all the way from the Sports deck down tot he Boardwalk neighborhood. The innovative feature was first introduced aboard Harmony of the Seas when she entered service in 2016 and the feature can also be seen on sister ship Symphony of the Seas.
