Perfect Storm Slides on Royal Caribbean

Royal Caribbean started adding slides to their cruise ships in 2016 and they have been a huge hit ever since! The addition of water slides to their ships has definitely made them a more attractive cruise line for families who have kids that need to be kept busy all. of. the. time. Read on to find out everything you need to know about The Perfect Storm water slides, what they are, and what ships you can find them on!

What is the Perfect Storm?

Simply put, the Perfect Storm are slides that you'll find on six different Royal Caribbean cruise ships. All eight ships that offer The Perfect Storm have both the Cyclone & Typhoon - a set of racer slides, cruisers can choose between the two and then hop on at the same time to see who makes it to the bottom first! They are a huge hit with kids and teenagers! You'll find the Cyclone & Typhoon on a total of eight Royal Caribbean ships, but some on some of those ships you will also find a third slide, which can vary by ship! Confused yet? Read on and we'll clear it all up!

Supercell Slide

Super Cell Slide on Royal Caribbean

The Supercell slide, found only on Royal Caribbean stars out just like a regular slide before shooting you into a huge bowl that you'll loop around before finally racing to the pool at the bottom of the slide. It's crazy fun and a favorite with cruises, both young at old. All of the slides on Royal Caribbean are included in the price of your cruise fare so you can ride this as many times as you'd like! Please keep in mind the minimum height is 48" and the max weight is 300 lbs.

You will find the Supercell on the following Royal Caribbean ships:

Oasis of the Seas

Symphony of the Seas

Harmony of the Seas

Tidal Wave

Tidal Wave Slide on Royal Caribbean

The Tidal Wave is different than anything I've ever seen before! You'll use a raft for two on this slide. After climbing the stairs to the top of the slide tower where you will board your raft to get on this boomerang style slide. You'll start with a steep plummet to gain speed before being flung up the wave and then rebounding back towards the other side where you will eventually be deposited into a pool to end your ride. As with all other slides on Royal Caribbean, The Tidal Wave is included in your cruise fare. The minimum height to ride is 52" and the minimum weight is 75 pounds. There is a maximum weight limit of 280 pounds. There MUST BE two riders on this slide so if your cruise buddy can't (or won't) go you'll have to make a new friend! The Tide Wave Boomerang slide is only found on Liberty of the Seas.

If you are counting, you may have realized that I've only talked about four ships and at the beginning of this article I told you there are eight total ships that have The Perfect Storm. Here are the four ships that offer just the two racer slides of The Perfect Storm:

Mariner of the Seas

Adventure of the Seas

Freedom of the Seas

Independence of the Seas
