For those guests looking for a more serene experience, Crown Princess

since been rolled out fleet wide. It is an adult's only outdoor deck area
most of which is shaded by a large canvas awning.. It seeks to promote
relaxation with a tranquil atmosphere, specialty drinks and light meals.
You can also have a massage in the Sanctuary's pavilions.
In addition to the pools, Crown Princess's open decks have large spaces filled with deck
chairs for lounging in the sun (see above left). Enclosed within the lattice structure that
houses the ship's funnel is the Sports Court (above right). Further aft is the jogging
track (left) and Princess Links, the mini-golf course (below). There is also table
tennis in the Neptune pool area (below right).
