NY Central Park to feature on Genesis class!

Project Genesis ship will feature an area based on New York City’s Central Park.

The Miami-based cruise line said the center of the ships feature tropical grounds spanning the length of a football field. The area will also have restaurants — including 150 Central Park, Central Park Café and Vintages wine bar — boutiques, an art gallery, a sculpture garden and a chess garden with large-scale pieces. Royal Caribbean (NYSE: RCL) said 334 staterooms will overlook the park.

Project Genesis is to be the world’s largest cruise ship, weighing in at 225,000 gross tons and carrying 5,400 passengers. The ship is to debut in fall 2009 and sail from Port Everglades. In 2010, Project Genesis will be joined by a sister ship.

“Our brand identity is founded in innovation and on delivering the best cruise vacation through ‘wow’ experiences,” Royal Caribbean President and Chief Executive Officer Adam Goldstein said in a news release. “Central Park is a true evolution of cruise ship design and allows us to provide our guests with not only a more varied selection of balcony accommodations, but also a stunning public venue that will be a central element of the ship, both during the day and at night.”

The Central Park area is the first of seven “neighborhoods” to be unveiled for Project Genesis.
