The biggest addition to the ship is the new AquaDunk – a slide that sends passengers down three-stories in seven seconds, Philly.com reported.
The ride starts on Deck 10. Guests step out onto the plank where they can see the entire ship and the ocean. Donald Duck then counts down ‘3,2,1. Action!’. Then the bottom drops and they are sent down a curved tube.
The slide sends guests 20-feet over the side of the ship before splashing into a pool.
On the top deck, Mickey’s pool has been replaced with an AquaLab water playzone for kids. The zone includes, a tipping bucket, knee-deep kids pool and a Twist and Spout waterslide.
Also for the youngeons, Disney has introduced Marvel super heroes. The Oceaneer Club now includes an Avengers Academy, where children aged four to 12 can pretend they are Iron Man in a simulated training exercise.
Back in the living space, staterooms have received new mattresses and new linen – all beds are now covered with 100 percent Egyptian cotton. Bed frames have also been elevated for extra under the bed storage.
Although Disney has maintained the basic design of rooms, they have added 44 new connecting doors for families wanting extended living space.
All adult spaces on the ship have also been renovated. The Senses Spa & Salon has been expanded by 725 square feet and is now equipped with a barber shop. The spa has also received a ‘Chill Spa’ on Deck 11 for teens looking for an ice-cream pedicure, hot-chocolate body wrap and a facial.
