SkyRide® – Imagine a pedal-powered reclining ride that opens your eyes to incredible vistas high above the sparkling sea, with two lanes so you can share the experience Ride the next evolution of family cruising from high above the deck inside a safe and healthy workout pod.

Serenity, Adult Only Retreat – Get away from it all while kids run wild on their own escapades. This is an onboard oasis where adults can lounge, work, meet new friends, or just lay back and relax in a place of peace, hammocks, cocktails and the silent sea.

Ropes Course – This is where the thrill-seekers in your family can go all out in a safe and soft environment. Kids can strap into a safety harness and test their acrobatic skills on a course of narrow beams, tightropes, nets and daredevil fun.
