RCI is making the world's longest water slide at sea

Royal Caribbean International's Navigator of the Seas will undergo a $115-million dry dock makeover. Once complete, it will feature the longest water slide at sea.

It is expected that the Navigator of the Seas will be ready to return to sea on February 24, 2019 in Miami before being repositioned at Port Canaveral in May 2019; it will also stop at the coveted private island of cruise ship, Coco Cay. This is the third RCI vessel - following Independence of the Seas and the Mariner of the Seas - to undergo major renovations within the $1 billion Royal Amplified program.

"The Navigator of the Seas will be an unmatched combination of innovation and fun experiences ," said RCI President Michael Bayley.
