A sneak peek at the new Carnival Splendor


Carnival has released plans of the revamped Carnival Splendor cruise. And it’s nothing short of spectacular.

Carnival Splendor will undergo an extensive dry dock in November 2019. Once complete, the cruise ship will sport a brand new WaterWorks park with two giant water slides and a Splash Zone.

The revamped ship is expected to debut in Sydney in December. 

Splendor is one of Carnival’s largest ships, with a capacity of more than 3000 passengers. It is set to become the newest and largest ship homeported in Australia.

“Action-packed water parks are what Carnival does best. So when Aussies told us it was a favourite feature on Carnival Spirit and Legend, we wanted to raise the bar when it came to designing a new WaterWorks for Carnival Splendor,” Jennifer Vandekreeke, Vice President of Carnival Cruise Line Australia says.

The craft will feature a stellar green, pink and yellow WaterWorks including slides that will tower 50 metres above the waterline.

Splendor’s WaterWorks will also include MiniRacer slides, splash toys, the yellow Twister Waterslide and The Power Drencher tipping bucket. With roughly 150 collective metres of curved super slides, the water rides will end in a giant swirling bowl.
