Meet the company behind your cruise ship's water slides

The Orlando Sentinel posted a good article on the cruise ship water slide arms race. One Florida company, Aquatic Design & Engineering worked closely with Royal Caribbean on the concept and design of all their new slides. Although Aquatic Design & Engineering says the goal was to "provide that sense of danger and excitement," ultimately it is about fun. The slides are never as extreme as some of the other onboard attractions. We're sure that all new ships built for families and young cruisers will have slides. What will be fun is to see what older ships add water attractions like Disney did with their AquaDunk.
