Splashin' at sea


As Royal Caribbean International knows only too well, the inclusion of aquatic attractions – not just pools – is now considered crucial by many cruise ship companies and their passengers. Specially-engineered slides that are attractive to family members of all ages, and now water playgrounds and splash areas for younger kids, help while away those hours at sea in the most entertaining of ways. The Harmony of the Seas project was the latest of


several ocean liner installations for Polin Waterparks over the past few years. The company, which boasts the world's largest waterslide manufacturing plant in Turkey, has had its attractions featured in several articles (including this one: huff.to/2n7StPw) listing the some of the best cruise ship waterparks. Four years ago, Polin was responsible for the


waterpark on board Carnival Sunshine. Previously known as Carnival Destiny, the ship previously has just one waterslide but after a US$155 million refurb now cruises the Caribbean and Canada/New England complete with a signature waterpark called WaterWorks. The 1,500 sq m (16,145 sq ft) facility features a racing theme and comes equipped with three Aquatube slides, a water playground and a kids’ water play area with twin mini racer slides. Polin's other cruise ship commissions have included


installations on P&O's Pacific Dawn and MSC Cruises' Preziosa.
