The Central Park is on Deck 8 and has several restaurants: Chops Grille, 150 Central Park, Giovanni's Table, and Park Cafe. It also has Vintages (a wine bar), Trellis Bar, and a Coach Store.
In the afternoon, we went to Deck 16 and relaxed in one of the two Solarium hot tubs which cantilever over the edge of the ship. This area is for adults only. The bubbling hot tub is huge and sitting in it, you can look straight down into the ocean.
Out of the hot tub, we changed and went to the Royal Promenade to get ready for the formal dinner tonight.

Today is an at-sea day. Perfect day to lay around the pools and explore other neighborhoods. Today, let's visit Central Park. I am going to show you a lot of pictures of this beautiful and special area. It's amazing that they could create an expansive and beautiful urban park on a ship like this.
Open-air Central Park on Deck 8
Walkways and trellis
Stone walls and high-end stores
There are thousands of plants and numerous species growing vigorously everywhere you look.
The park has winding sidewalks, benches, and sculptures. It looks great in the day time but at night, it is even more attractive because of all the wonderful lighting.
