Cruise fans are getting a first look at the planned family activity zone aboard the new Sun Princess. When the ship debuts in February 2024, the top deck’s Park19 will have nine engaging activities for fun and sun for all generations.
“Park19 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,” said John Padgett, Princess Cruises president. “The new area was tailored based on guest feedback for more family and group activities spaces.”
Located on decks 19, 20, and 21, Park19 was envisioned for active guests and multi-generational families to explore and connect through inclusive and engaging activities, including the first Rollglider on a cruise ship. Sea Breeze uses an overhead track to guide guests on this electric ride, which reaches speeds of up to 11 mph.
Other features include climbing obstacles, an open-air observation deck, climbable cargo nets, leaning tilt walls and even splash areas.
Ping pong, shuffleboard, fitness classes and morning meditation sessions, and other wellness options will be offered to guests in this multifunction sports court.
There are additional features for younger guests, including babysitting services. Teens can visit areas with comfy sofas, video game systems and traditional diversions such foosball, air hockey and more. Dance parties, movie nights and more are planned.
Currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy, the 175,500-ton, 4,300-guest Sun Princess will offer an array of exciting new dining, entertainment, and activity offerings, as well as luxurious staterooms and suites across a broad spectrum of categories.
Inaugural 2024 Sun Princess cruises to the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Transatlantic and Europe are currently on sale. The ship will sail out of Fort Lauderdale’s Port Everglades when sailing to the Caribbean.
