Royal Caribbean has released some new photos of the huge new slides being installed on Oasis of the Seas during dry dock.
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.
The new slides are part of many new improvements to Oasis of the Seas and nearby will also be a totally reimagined Caribbean inspired pool deck, Splashaway Bay kids aqua park and the Lime & Coconut bar. There will also be a Portside BBQ restaurant, Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade, Mexican inspired El Loco Fresh and Sugar Beach candy store.
The dry dock is taking place in Cadiz, Spain and she first entered in late September as posted here. By November 24 the huge Royal Caribbean cruise ship will be ready to begin seven-day Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises from the new modern Terminal A at PortMiami, Florida. She will also become the largest cruise ship to sail from New York in May 2020 out of Cape Liberty in Bayonne.
Oasis of the Seas is 225,282 gross ton cruise ship with a guest capacity of over 5,600 at double occupancy.
