Princess has put a lot of thought into the “sports zone” on their newest ship, the Royal Princess, set for her maiden voyage in early summer 2013.
She will feature a multi-sports area atop the ship that has been christened “Sports Central”, and will feature ping pong, croquet, volleyball, basketball, tennis, and batting cage. This area will also feature a putting green and an adjoining indoor driving range, and will be encircled by a two-lane track (one for walkers, one for joggers).
The ship will also feature a fitness center located on Deck 17 aft. This expansive space will house treadmills, ellipticals, recumbent bicycles, strength equipment and free weights. Most of the cardio machines will offer video screens, some with interactive, virtual programs. The private aerobics studio will feature a spinning course modeled on stages of the Tour de France, chi ball yoga using aromatherapy-infused balls, and TRX.
The line will also conduct seminars on wellness, health and nutrition.
