A relative once chided me ‘to grow up’ but where’s the joy in that? The best people are really just big kids, the types who love to have some fun on the slide at sea.
They are a multitude of reasons why cruiseheads love being out at sea.
But for me one of the top things is doing stuff which you really shouldn’t be possible out on a ship at sea.
Such as a fairground.
Being thrown around on a water slide is my idea of delirium at the best of times.
Making a splash
All of those experiences have been on dry land (well you know what I mean).
But think about the exhileration of being spent spiralling out over the ship.
And then be twirled back around and down the chute to safety.
Well, it all goes on on Royal Caribbean.
In no particular order, they’re offering The Edge of Ultimate Abyss (plummeting ten stories), The Blaster, The Perfect Storm (race to the bottom), Tidal Wave (plunge and propel).
And the only headfirst mat racer at sea where you’ll ride the riptide.
Rule the waves
Your appetite whetted… well you’ll want to get on board.
The new Wonder of the Seas has a seven-night Western Mediterranean cruise, sailing from Barcelona, from €1009.
So get your togs or swimsuit on and have fun on the slide at sea.
