Myrtha Pools equips new aquatic playground and waterslides for P&O cruise ship
Myrtha Pools has demonstrated the versatility of its suite of aquatic industry products with the completion of an exciting waterpark with slides and a children’s aquatic playground on the P&O cruise ship Pacific Dawn.
Undertaken last year for the Australian-based cruise liner, the refurbishment introduced a range of new features including a 77 metre waterslide providing a sensational visual and sound sensory experience for riders.
Using a special sound system that diffuses music through built in loudspeakers, the slide is transformed into loudspeaker itself. At the same time, numerous polychrome bands make a visual impact, creating a continuous light show for a breathtaking ride.
The second waterslide captures the attention thanks to its semitransparency: 81 metres of translucent fiberglass. It provides unique sensations for those who use the water slide as well as for those who, from the outside, watch the people who are coming down the line.
Both slides were sourced from Polin Waterparks.
The Spraypark - also designed and installed by Myrtha Pools - completes the installation, providing a zero depth aquatic play space with interactive water toys for children to enjoy.
Commenting on the project, a Myrtha Pools spokesperson advised “increasingly, cruise ships are renewed with the addition of modern and exciting attractions and new features, to provide unique and exciting experiences to their customers.
“The world-wide presence of ships with high levels of comfort and services led the cruise tourism industry to a steady growth over the years, always succeeding in satisfying the most demanding end users.”
Undertaken at Singapore’s naval shipyard, the refurbishment of the 1,500 passenger and 11 deck ship saw a restyling of bars, lounges and restaurants, with the ship now looking like as modern and elegant as the whole P&O fleet.
Myrtha Pools became protagonist of the renovation project with their record time installation works.
In only 12 days Myrtha Pools’ team completed a spraypark full of interactive games dedicated to children’s enjoyment and two thrilling waterslides including the departure platforms: exciting attractions which combine engineering know-how and creative talent, interaction with the customer and the ongoing creation of new solutions always in compliance with the strict technical requirements of the shipyard.
The assembly works performed on the cruise deck involved a 15 person qualified team, working 24/7 in two different shifts. This represented a significant challenge for Myrtha Pools considering the operating conditions - limited time schedule, confined spaces, complexity of the site with many sub-contractors working at the same time.
The Myrtha Pools spokesperson added “the new Pacific Dawn water park is a break-through one, transforming the way we usually think of waterslides and offering guests an extraordinary aquatic experience.”
