SeaWalks: We have already been shown the conceptual drawings and videos for the Sea Walk - a 60 feet long glass walkway that extands out over the side of the ship on one of the uppermost decks. This glass-bottomed walkway "hovers" 128 feet above the ocean for dramatic views of the ocean far below. Passengers will now have the sense of stepping out from the side of the ship for a breathtaking sight below their feet. On the other side (port) of the same deck the ship, the SeaView cocktail bar also extends out over the waves for an equalling breathtaking view.

Fresh Water Pools: Forward of the area containiong the SeaWalk and Sea View Bar passengers on the new Pacifc Princess will have a host of lounging options in lush surrounding; and two fresh water pools flanking an island area with beautiful palm trees between them. During the day passengers can relax and rejuvenate poolside in a variety of seating options, including circular loungers, garden-style furniture, bar-height tables and stools, and chaise lounges.

At night this island will come alive with entertainment options like games and live music inspired by the ship's ports of call.

Water and Light Show: When the top deck of Royal Princess transforms with architectural lighting effects to set the mood at night, the island area between the two pools will become a stage showcasing an interactive sound and light show featuring dancing fountains. With a sophisticated lighting and sound system, and a dramatically lit computerized fountain featuring 85 water jets and streams of water shooting 33 feet into the air.

Movies Under the Stars: This signature poolside theater screen will be 30 percent larger for a true widescreen movie experience coupled with a high-tech audio and visual system for an unforgettable open-air movie-going experience. Guests will enjoy movies, sporting events and concert movies while relaxing on comfortable chaise lounges complete with pillows, blankets and free popcorn. For those who'd like to watch from the water, the ship's large whirlpool spas above the pools will offer great views of Movies Under the Stars while soaking.

Evening Entertainment: On selected nights the island, perched two decks up on a special balcony, will be transformed into an outdoor dance floor to play host to the the Ultimate Deck Party featuring a DJ-driven dance music mix.
