Royal Caribbean is planning a two-month, $165 million overhaul of Allure of the Seas in spring 2020. The makeover will give the ship some of the same iconic features as the other three Oasis-class ships.
The overhaul includes the 10-story dry slide The Ultimate Abyss and The Perfect Storm, which is a trio of water slides with see-through panels so you can enjoy the views as you go down. The record-breaking slides already exist on sister ships Harmony of the Seas and Symphony of the Seas, which are both based in the US.
