Discovering the World Together

By Stacey Zable

Princess caters to multi-generational family travelers.

Invite the entire family on your next Princess® cruise. Mom, dad, the kids, grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles, and cousins of all ages can sail the seas, have adventures together, and spend quality time creating memories of a lifetime. Activities and immersive experiences on and off the ship will keep every family member happy, doing their own thing or with each other. Meals together and staterooms designed to accommodate everyone in comfort makes a Princess cruise an ideal vacation for the whole family.

Family-focused fun onboard starts with multiple chances to mingle with Stanley the bear at photo opportunities, during story time, and even at a breakfast with Stanley doing craft projects. Enjoy Movies Under the Stars, onboard games like trivia and karaoke, and the Family Fun Fair, a mini festival where kids can get their face painted and participate in other family-friendly activities.

There is also Camp Discovery for ages 3 to 12 and teen centers for ages 13 to 17 so kids can make friends and mom and dad can explore ports on their own if they want to do so. And for those families sailing on the Caribbean Princess® , the new Reef Family Splash Zone’s interactive splash pad offers showers, sprays, and a water jet. Oversized backyard games in the all-ages game zone on Caribbean Princess® gets the family building their team spirit.

Introducing Park19, a Sun Princesss® wonderland for all ages + a Princess first! Princess knows you love spending time with your favorite people, so they created a (tip)top-deck space everyone can enjoy … together on Sun Princess®. Places to climb, glide, run, splash, look-out or just lounge. Soar like a bird 19 decks above the waves on the Sea Breeze Rollglider, a first at sea. It’s just a taste of what you’ll find at this wonderland for kids and adults alike.

Families get to experience the destination, sea, and sky on Princess cruises with top-deck stargazing and an indoor planetarium offering real-time views of planets, stars, and galaxies. Animal Planet introduces fun friends of the region while onboard including Puppies in the Piazza on Alaska cruises and Parrots in the Piazza in the Caribbean.

While in port, enriching and immersive DiscoveryTM, Discovery Family, and Animal PlanetTM Exclusive Tours are available for the whole family to experience together. Many Discovery Family tours provide hands-on opportunities to better understand the visiting regions, often designed with special features for 3- to 12-year-old guests. Families will thrill at being able to interact with the natural world and animals from stingrays in the Caribbean to sloths in Costa Rica and whale watching in Alaska plus a whole lot more with Animal PlanetTM tours.

Leave the stress behind with Dine My Way® reservations for your family group, a range of cuisines and regional foods, special kids’ menus, and the chance to make sure everyone’s dietary preferences are taken care of. Make it a special celebration for a big birthday or anniversary with personalized moments that enhance the voyage.

Sailing in comfort is easy on Princess with mini-suites and suites, plus Family Suites with two interconnecting staterooms that sleep up to eight on select ships. The Princess MedallionClass® experience brings technology to families with OceanNow® delivery where you can order food, drinks, and retail items from your lounge chair. The Shipmates locator not only helps you find your way around the ship but can find your family members and also enable you to stay in touch with onboard messaging.
