Sea Breeze and a Rollglider that straps passengers in, allowing them to glide around an elevated track at speeds up to 11 mph. The second floor 60 – 90 will also be ADA accessible.
“Park19 as the name suggests is a new destination designed for all of our guests, including activities that bring together multi-generational traveling families in spectacular scenery and outdoor fun for all,” said John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises. “The new location was designed based on guest feedback to provide more space for families and groups.”
Some of the features available on the upper levels of the Sun Princess will include: Sailingseveral obstacles that are 19 and 20 and allow visitors to enjoy the high views from The Lookoutobservation deck which is the most luxurious place that the passengers of the train have.
Rope lessons called Net will be located on deck 19 which will include columns, cargo nets, and floating bridges for visitors to walk high above the Court of Pleasure which will include ping pong, shuffleboard, and a variety of games and exercises throughout the tour.

“These additions give young sailors more to explore and enjoy on Sun Princess, making it a great family experience for everyone regardless of age,” added Padgett.
