Princess Cruises Unveils Park19, A New Top-Deck Family Activity Zone to Debut on Sun Princess

Newest Ship Features Engaging Family Experiences, Plus Inclusive Youth & Teen Centers

Princess Cruises Unveils Park19, the most engaging family activity zone ever featured on a Princess cruise ship. Park19 is setting a course for adventure aboard the new Sun Princess when this first Sphere Class vessel debuts in February 2024. Located on the top decks of Sun Princess, Park19 features nine engaging activities for the entire family to enjoy. This newly envisioned space is perfect 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 is for active guests and multi-generational families to explore and connect through inclusive and engaging activities.

New Engaging Activities Debuting on Sun Princess

Sea Breeze

Inspired by the dream of hang gliding but in a safe environment, the Sea Breeze is the first Rollglider on a cruise ship. It takes guests high above to enjoy panoramic views of the ocean and breathtaking 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. This open-air observation deck allows guests to take in stunning 360º views from the highest point available onboard Sun Princess.


The Net

Harnessed above deck 19, guests can challenge themselves by trekking across unstable bridges, a z-shaped balance beam, and climb cargo nets.

Infinite Horizon

Leaning tilt walls cantilevered over the side of the ship allow guests to peer out from deck 19 down to deck 9 and beyond. This is perfect for those who love heights.

Hammock Area

Another first for Princess, relaxing hammocks allow Park19 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

A rotation of sports and wellness options will be available to guests in this multifunction sports court. These activities range from ping pong and shuffleboard to Xponential Fitness classes and morning meditation.

Jogging Track

A refreshing open-air track allows guests to walk, jog, or run at their own leisure and pace. On this jogging track, 6.7 times around equals one mile.

Additional Family-Centric Offerings on Sun Princess

Additional family-centric offerings onboard Sun Princess are found in the Youth & Teen Centers. These centers are located on decks six and seven. Here, 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 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 pm – 1 am for $5 per hour, for ages three – 12.
  • Neon Grove (tweens) and The Underground (teens) – 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 added.
