New Sun Princess to Debut First Rollglider on a Ship
The most engaging family activity zone ever featured on a Princess cruise ship will debut on the new Sun Princess when the ship is launched in February 2024.
Located on the top decks of Sun Princess, Park 19 will feature nine engaging activities for the entire family to enjoy.
“Park 19 as the name suggests is a new space created for all our guests, including activities to bring together multi-generational travel families in a location with spectacular views and fun outdoor activities for all,” John Padgett, Princess Cruises president, said in a news release.
“The new area was tailored based on guest feedback for more family and group activities spaces,” he said.
Located on decks 19, 20 and 21, Park 19 was envisioned for active guests and multi-generational families to explore and connect through inclusive and engaging activities, including:
Sea Breeze – Inspired by the dream of hang gliding but in a safe environment, Sea Breeze is the first Rollglider on a cruise ship and takes guests high above to enjoy panoramic views of the ocean and ports of call. Using an overhead track, guests are seated and harnessed to this electric ride which reaches speeds of up to 11 mph during the 60- to 90-second experience that is also ADA accessible.
Coastal Climb – On this engaging climbing structure, guests ascend from decks 19 to 20 through a series of obstacles. Once at the top, guests can take in the gorgeous views before sliding back down to the bottom.
The Lookout – At the top of the climbing structure, adventurers make their way to The Lookout open-air observation deck to take in stunning 360 degree views from the highest point available to guests onboard Sun Princess.
The Net – Harnessed above deck 19, guests are challenged to trek across unstable bridges, a Z-shaped balance beam and climb cargo nets.
Infinite Horizon – For those who love heights, leaning tilt walls cantilevered over the side of the ship allow guests to peer out from deck 19 and look down to deck 9 and beyond.
Hammock Area – Another first for Princess, relaxing hammocks allow Park 19 visitors to take a break from exploring to hang out with family and friends.
Splash Zone – A whimsical splash area with pop jets and a beautiful water sculpture offer a refreshing and relaxing area to chill.
Recreational Court – From ping pong, shuffleboard, Xpotential Fitness classes and morning meditation, a rotation of sports and wellness options will be offered to guests in this multifunction sports court.
Jogging Track – A refreshing open-air track allows guests to walk, jog or run at their own leisure and pace, with 6.7 times around the track equaling one mile.
Additional family-centric offerings onboard Sun Princess are found in the Youth & Teen Centers located on decks 6 and 7 where activities and age-appropriate areas abound for all younger guests ages six months to 17.
These complimentary areas include:
Firefly Park – For the youngest Princess guests, this imaginative space located on deck 6 invites youngsters ages six months to seven years old and their families to explore, play and socialize. This family center is a place to play together or drop kids off for a program of art projects, theme parties and group games.
Firefly Park also invites families with babies and toddlers, ages six months to three, to crawl and engage their senses with a dedicated play area. After hours group babysitting is available from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. for $5 per hour for ages three to 12.
Neon Grove (tweens) and The Underground (teens) – Located on deck seven, two separate areas offer an inviting space for tweens and teens to hang out, socialize and just have fun. Both spaces feature colorful, comfy sofas and chairs for lounging, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch gaming consoles, plus air hockey, foosball and skeeball. Program activities for these age groups include ship scavenger hunts, movie nights, friendly competitions and dance parties.
“These expanded offerings give younger cruisers plenty to explore and enjoy aboard Sun Princess, creating an even more family-friendly experience with something for everyone regardless of age,” Padgett said.
