Royal Caribbean Post Round-Up: December 20, 2015

20 Dec 2015
Matt Hochberg

Christmas is right around the corner and for many Royal Caribbean fans, we all received an early present this year with some big Royal Caribbean news.

Royal Caribbean revealed the details surrounding its 10 story slide coming to its third Oasis class cruise ship, Harmony of the Seas.

After months of hinting, Royal Caribbean has finally revealed what guests can look forward to trying onboard Harmony of the Seas with the 10 story slide known as, "Ultimate Abyss."

The brand new slide is more than 150 feet above sea level and will send guests plummeting down 10 decks, with spontaneous audio effects within each of the slide's two tunnels that will create a multi-sensory thrill.

The Ultimate Abyss is brand new to Royal Caribbean and we also shared five quick facts about this new slide.
