Royal Caribbean's Navigator of the Seas
Los Angeles, California
Offering cruises out of Los Angeles, California, Navigator of the Seas recently received a $115 million modernization as part of Royal Caribbean’s fleet-wide improvements, which included a completely reimagined pool, waterslide, and kids’ area. Total pool square footage was doubled, creating significantly increased space for splashing and lounging. Together with the new dazzling aquatic features, a tiered outdoor bar and Caribbean theming help deliver ultimate island vibes.
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 received an upgrade with the addition of more shallow sun shelves, in-water lounges, and seating for relaxing with a drink in hand. A separate splash pad for kids and toddlers ensures the whole family has fun.
