Princess Cruise Line has Amazing Kid Friendly Programs
It’s a fact, Princess Cruise Line has Amazing Kid Friendly Programs! Aboard you will find dedicated youth centers designed for age appropriate play but the best part is the educational learning programs that Princess has incorporated. To participate in the youth programs aboard you must be potty trained and at least 3 years old. Princess does not offer youth programs aboard their smaller vessels such as the Ocean or Pacific Princess unless at least 20 children are registered for travelling. Pre-registration for youth groups are allowed.
- Princess Pelicans: Designed for age group 3-7. On an average day as a Pelican you can expect to find your child participating in art projects, kids only dance parties, t-shirt coloring, or even enjoying an ice cream or pizza party. Children under 3 are allowed in the Pelican area as long as they are accompanied by an adult.
- Shockwaves: The Shockwaves program is designated for children ages 8-12. Exciting activities offered for the Shockwaves include sports tournaments, talent shows, and scavenger hunts.
- Remix: Remix is a teen lounge for those 13-17. Here your teenagers can enjoy a game of foosball with a new friend. Participate in hip hop dance classes, get a teen appropriate makeover, play a few video games, or just kick back and enjoy the latest movies.
- Group Sitting: Group sitting is offered for ages 3-12 from 10 p.m. until 1 a.m. The cost is $5 per child.
- Chef@Sea Program: Do you have a little cook on your hands? Then the Chef@Sea program would be perfect! For a small fee your little ones get a chance to go behind the scenes in the kitchen where all the real magic happens! Your little chefs will get the full experience; from dressing the part in mini toques and aprons to creating their very own pizza, or decorating a cake! Parents are welcome to attend the workshop and children will receive a certificate of achievement upon completion.
- Yoga for Kids and Teens: These complementary classes last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and are a great way to get your child a little extra exercise while on board.
- Science at Seas Program: One of my all-time favorites! Princess staff members have been certified through the California Science Center to be able to present this fabulous program to your children. Here you may learn how to build a roller coaster, do some chemistry experiments, study marine biology, and possibly even dissect a squid!
- Junior Ranger/Teen Explorer Program: Another favorite but only offered on Alaska cruises is the Junior Ranger Program. Park Rangers will help your child learn about glaciers, endangered species, and the animals of the region. Upon completion your child will receive their own ranger badge and certificate.
- Pete’s Pals Program: For those not sailing to Alaska but are still interested in the idea of learning about the creatures of the seas the Pete’s Pals Program is perfect! When participating in this project you will be able to learn about the endangered animals in the areas in which Princess sails. Learn about humpback whales, white pelicans, sea turtles, and bald eagles; just to name a few. Once your child has participated in the program they will receive a limited edition plush animal to take home.
- Other kid favorites aboard Princess: Kids only dinners, Movies under the Stars, several pools, or enjoying the sports complex.
