From private islands to adventures at sea – Royal Caribbean continues conjuring up new ways of stimulating its guests & this latest one is bound to get the Sympathetic Nervous System racing.

Royal Caribbean revealed it’s installing the world’s longest waterslide at sea on Navigator of the Seas during her US$155 million makeovers, which will run for over 800-feet long.

The record-breaking ride named ‘The Blaster’ will be able to take two people down at a time on a raft that runs over hills and drops, The Daily Mail reported.


Described by Royal Caribbean as a “unique seabourne thrill”, the ride is one of many new features to debut on the ship when she relaunches in Miami on 24 February.

She’ll practically be a brand new vessel, according to President and Chief Executive Michael Bayley, who said she’ll undergo a “top-to-bottom transformation”.

“Every detail matters and we’ve mapped out an unmatched combination of innovative features and experiences.”

Other newly introduced onboard activities include laser tag and an Escape Room, both of which will also be added to Independence of the Seas during her makeover in April last year.

There’ll also be new restaurants and bars such as the Mexican restaurant El Loco Fresh and Jamie’s Italian.

In other Royal Caribbean news, the cruise line has revealed plans to open five new ‘Perfect Day’ private islands, including one in Australia.
