Royal Caribbean's Navigator of the Seas
Offering short cruises out of Miami, Florida, Navigator of the Seas is the latest ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet to receive a $115 million modernization, which includes a completely reimagined pool and waterslide area. Onboard the top deck is the cruise line’s first-ever aqua coaster dubbed “The Blaster,” an 800-foot-long slide taking two-person rafts up hills, down drops and through straightaways above the ship and over its side. The other waterslide, “Riptide,” is the industry’s only headfirst mat racer that gives riders exciting ocean views through its clear tube sections. The pool area also received an upgrade with additional space for in-water loungers and a separate splash pad for kids and toddlers.
For this project’s water slides, wet play area, and pool deck, ADE provided concept design and hydraulic, filtration, and chemical system design and engineering services.
