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.
