Carnival Cruise Line has revealed plans to install a Dr Seuss-themed water park on its newest ship.
Carnival Horizon will be the first in the line’s fleet to feature the Dr Seuss WaterWorks, which will be based on characters and stories by the children’s author.
The announcement was made by Carnival president Christine Duffy and Dr Seuss Enterprises president Susan Brandt in Fort Lauderdale on Thursday, April 20. The pair said it was an investment into the 800,000 children carried on the line each year.
The exclusive partnership with Dr Seuss Enterprises will also extend to youth, family, dining and entertainment experiences including a Green Eggs and Ham breakfast.
Horizon’s Dr Seuss WaterWorks will be on Deck 12 and offer The Cat in the Hat enclosed raft slide at 450 feet high and the Fun Things slide named after the duo Thing 1 and Thing 2 at 213 feet high.
It will also include a 150-gallon tipping bucket designed after The Cat’s hat, along with a children’s splash zone with dozens of water spray toys.
Duffy said: “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.
“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.”
The 3,934-passenger Carnival Horizon will debut in Europe next April.
