Port Day Activities
The Youth and Teen Centers are open while in port from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. A supervised complimentary lunch service is available with parental consent.

The dining options onboard our ships allow parents the freedom and flexibility to dine with their children or on their own. Parents may wish to spend time with their children while they eat an early dinner at the pizzeria, in the 24-hour Horizon Court buffet, or in their stateroom with 24-hour room service. Or, families may wish to dine together in one of our elegant, upscale restaurants, which offer a special children’s menu. Anytime Dining is recommended for families who want to dine together, so children may fully participate in the evening youth activities.

TV Programs
TV programs appropriate for children, including cartoons, movies and award-winning programs may be shown on the in-stateroom television during the early morning hours, midday and early evening. Youth and Teen Centers are also equipped with giant screen TVs for late-night movie gatherings, featuring the latest kids & teen films.

Scheduled on select seasonal sailings, the California Science Center will deliver entertaining interactive science activities for children aboard Princess ships. Whale watching, coral reef studies, building and racing sailboats, marine biology studies, chemistry experiments, and squid dissection are just some of the activities that may be offered.

Princess also offers the Pete's Pals Program, as a way for Princess kids to learn more about threatened and endangered species in the areas in which Princess sails. Each year Princess will issue a limited edition plush animal depicting a species in danger for all children participating in this program.

For Alaska cruises, Princess' National Park Service Junior Ranger Program teaches kids about glaciers, endangered wildlife & other animals native to the region. Park Rangers provide special presentations and activities for kids & teens, giving them an opportunity to earn a Jr. Ranger badge.
