Makeover brings splashy new water park to Carnival ship

Makeover brings splashy new water park to Carnival ship

Call it a glorious new day for Carnival Glory.

The 13-year-old Carnival ship just received a major upgrade with the addition of an expansive new water park to its top deck.

Unveiled over the weekend during a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Miami, the watery fun zone features one of the line's signature Twister slides as well as a new-for-Carnival translucent slide called the AquaTunnel.

Dubbed WaterWorks, the water park also features a 75-gallon PowerDrencher tipping bucket and a kiddie area with dual mini-racing slides and a variety of water toys.

The Twister slide measures 212 feet long, just a tad longer than the AquaTunnel slide, which measures 203 feet in length.

The water park area was added during a recent overhaul of Glory that took place in a dry dock and also included the renovation of other shipboard areas.

Based year-round in Miami, Glory operates seven-day cruises to the Caribbean.

Carnival has been spending millions of dollars in recent years to upgrade its fleet of 25 ships, some of which date back to the 1990s. Three other Carnival vessels emerged from major makeovers earlier this year. A fifth Carnival ship, Carnival Breeze, is scheduled for an overhaul later this year.
