The new Carnival Horizon will be the first ship in the Carnival fleet to feature Dr. Seuss WaterWorks, "a vibrant water park inspired by the whimsical world and words of the legendary children’s author," according to the cruise line.
The announcement was made by Carnival President Christine Duffy and Dr. Seuss Enterprises President Susan Brandt.
Located on Deck 12, Carnival Horizon’s Dr. Seuss WaterWorks will offer two distinctly different slides.
The Cat in the Hat slide will feature an enclosed raft slide offering more than 450 feet of heart-racing twists and turns.
The entrance resembles The Cat’s famous red and white hat with the distinctive color pattern carried throughout the slide in alternating translucent and opaque sections.
There is also the Fun Things slide, an enclosed body slide with whimsical polka dots and special lighting effects and named after the mischievous duo Thing 1 and Thing 2 and encompassing 213 feet.
Dr. Seuss WaterWorks will also include a 150-gallon tipping bucket patterned after The Cat’s hat, along with a kiddie splash zone with dozens of water spray toys.
”Our ships are designed as the ultimate seagoing playgrounds and Carnival Horizon will take this concept to the next level with the spectacular Dr. Seuss WaterWorks which promises fun for guests of all ages,” said Duffy. “Dr. Seuss is an iconic American brand and we’re delighted to expand our partnership with this incredible top-deck water attraction for our guests.”
Added Brandt, “We’re excited to build upon our relationship with Carnival by introducing our first-ever water park. Dr. Seuss is all about family fun and togetherness and we can’t wait to see our characters come to life in this colorful and exciting space.”
