New ship from MSC Cruises to feature water park

New ship from MSC Cruises to feature water park

The ship's deck 16 will host the Doremi Castle Aqua Park, complete with water jets, fountains and even water pistols.

The park will also, according to MSC Cruises, boast the longest water-slide ever built on a cruise ship. The aptly named "Vertigo" will tower 13 meters above the deck and the ride is 120 meters long, hurling revellers down the tube at a speed of 6 meters per second. Anyone shorter than 120 cm will not be allowed on it, for security reasons, but other, less daunting slides will be available for them. 

The MSC Preziosa will be christened in Genoa, Italy, on March 23.
