If there’s one thing that most people want to see on their cruise ship, it’s an incredible water park. And we’re not just talking about palatial pools with ample room for everyone; we’re talking about water parks that have fun and excitement for adults and little ones alike.
To be sure, many of the world’s cruise ships are pulling out all the stops when it comes to including amazing water parks on their vessels. However, there are a few ships out there today that really stand out. These ships have water parks that rival some of the ones that you’ll find ashore.
On this list, we’re going to highlight what we believe are the six best water parks on the high seas today. From two ships that offer water slides that send passengers into a virtual free fall, to another that will have you twisting and turning, these water parks are the bee’s knees!
If you’re thinking about booking a cruise in the near future, and you want to be on a boat where you can splish and splash to your hearts content, then these are the boats you want to be on! So, let’s take a look at the 6 best cruise ship water parks in the world!
1. Disney Magic
Disney’s cruise ships know how to keep people entertained, especially the little ones in your group!
But, you don’t need to be a kid to appreciate this ship’s water park, which includes the incredible AquaDunk.
If that’s too much for the smallest ones in your group, though, take them over to the Splash Zone, which they’re sure to enjoy!
2. Carnival Breeze
If you’re looking to have a party while you’re out on the ocean, then you really can’t do better than a Carnival cruise ship.
And, if you want to have fun in the water park, then you’ve got to book passage on the Breeze, which features the Twister waterslide.
Oh, and there’s also the Drain Pipe, which will give you an experience like being one of those coins in those charity things they have in the mall!
3. MSC Preziosa
Fans of luxurious cruises have long known that the MSC Preziosa is a desirable ship to be upon.
But, luxury doesn’t mean stodgy! To see what we mean, take the plunge on the seas’ longest single-rider water slide, the Vertigo.
For the little ones in your group, there’s also Doremi, which is a very kid-friendly and enjoyable water park.
4. Carnival Vista
Having just made its debut, the Carnival Vista is already becoming a sought-after cruise ship for discerning travelers.
When it comes to the ship’s water park, the standout attraction is the Kaleid-O-Slide, which can be ridden on one or two-person rafts.
But, that’s just one of the attractions when it comes to the incredible WaterWorks water park aboard this classy cruise ship!
5. Norwegian Escape
Having debuted only a little over a year ago, the Norwegian Escape has been grabbing headlines as one of the best cruise ships on the water.
The water park features a number of things to enjoy, including the Aqua Racer slide.
But, when you really want to have a thrill in the Escape’s water park, you’ve got to take the plunge down the Free Fall waterslide.
6. Norwegian Breakaway
There’s just no denying it; when it comes to water parks on cruise ships, Norwegian Cruise Lines knows what it’s doing!
On the Breakaway (and also the Getaway), you’ll be able experience the Free Fall as you would on the Escape.
But, the real standout on the Breakaway is The Whip, a pair of side-by-side racing water slides. Imagine the races!
