We took Central Park, a natural oasis within an urban core, and brought the concept and emotion it invokes to the sea, creating an amazing one-of-kind ship experience. This lush, open-air park features a series of cultivated experiences including a town square, outdoor dining, and a sculpture garden. This Central Park, (designed in collaboration with Atkins Global), is 90 meters long – the length of a football field – creating tranquil views from park level and from the passenger suites and staterooms on its borders. A key feature of Central Park, the Trellis Bar, is enchanting like its inspiration, Tavern on the Green. Central Park is in one word, magical. Central Park was designed in collaboration with Tom Wright and Design 5.
Innovations extend to the new kind of shipboard performance venue, called Studio B. It is an interchangeable, multi-function, 900-seat arena featuring the first ice rink at sea. With a retractable deck cover, telescopic seating and a raised stage, the space can also be reconfigured as a theater or television studio. Performances include ice shows, game shows, stand-up comedy and live music.
Studio B is outfitted with rigging that can fly performers over the ice. A giant video wall, supplemental monitors and theatrical lighting create a multi-media experience, setting a new standard for the cruise industry.
