Carnival Spirit is out of dry dock and back in service in San Diego, CA after receiving a brand new thrill slide, adults-only retreat Serenity, and flat screen TV’s in all 1,062 staterooms.

The main attraction called Green Thunder is a thrill slide located on deck 11 that drops you 100′ through a see-through slide at speeds of 20′ per second. Also new is a SplashZone complete with a 150-gallon PowerDrencher dump bucket and water play areas, complementing a corkscrew Twister water slide.

The refurbishment was in preparation for the Carnival Spirit’s upcoming deployment to Australia where the ship will operate eight- to 13-day Pacific Islands and New Zealand cruises beginning in October.  The ship will operate a schedule of Mexican Riviera, Alaska and Hawaii voyages from the U.S. before making the move “Down Under.”
