“Park19 is all about creating a space that caters to all our guests, with activities that bring multi-generational families together. It’s a location with incredible views and thrilling outdoor adventures,” said John Padgett, President of Princess Cruises. “We designed this area based on feedback from our guests who wanted more family-friendly and group activity spaces.”

Spread across decks 19, 20, and 21, Park19 is the ultimate playground for active guests and multi-generational families. Here’s what you can expect to find:

1. Sea Breeze – Soar high above the ship with the first Rollglider on a cruise ship. Experience the thrill of hang gliding in a safe environment and marvel at breathtaking ocean views and stunning ports of call. This electric ride reaches speeds of up to 11 mph and is ADA accessible.
