Cruising Photo of the Week (Outtakes) #13

This week’s outtake from my book, ‘Cruising the World – From Gondolas to Megaships’ is one of the popular waterslides conspicuously visible in “splash zones” atop the newest megaships.  Three other photos of these fanciful slides were used in ‘Cruising the World’ (copies available now with free shipping – use code SHIPFREE – here at www.DennisCox.com). 

Royal Caribbean, Princess, Norwegian and MSC appear to be the most competitive in competing with their water parks filled with slides, cannons, and various other devices to soak passengers.  An additional assortment of imaginative entertainment innovations meant to appeal to young families and couples includes surf and skydiving simulators, rock walls, ziplines, bicycles in the sky, rope walks, bowling alleys, and glass gondolas on extended mechanical arms for 360-degree views 300-feet above the ship while at sea.
