At Princess, we believe learning is fun


At Princess, we believe learning is fun. Through our Discovery at SeaTM program, an exclusive partnership with Discovery CommunicationsTM, as well as the California Science Center, we deliver exciting interactive activities for kids ages 3-12, led by our experienced Youth Staff. Whale watching, roller coaster building, chemistry experiments, and squid dissection are just some of the activities that may be offered.
Kids only dinners

Kids-Only Dinners

Kids-only dinners are offered on select evenings during your voyage. Kids get the chance to eat with their new friends and Youth Staff, while parents enjoy dinner on their own.

We offer a teens only dinner on a formal night, with a section of the dining room reserved just for teens. It's a chance for them to eat a formal dinner with their new friends.

We also offer fun ice cream and pizza parties throughout the voyage.

Please be sure to alert Youth Staff if your child has any food allergies.

Please note: During voyages with a high number of families onboard, we will make all efforts to accommodate interested parties. However, participation in our program cannot be guaranteed. Hours of operation may change to better serve our guests.

Hours of Operation: Sea days 9:00am to 12:00 pm | 1:00pm - 5:00pm | 6:00pm - 10:00pm. Port Days 8:00am - 5:00pm | 6:00pm - 10:00pm. Depending on the itinerary, port hours may be expanded. Check the schedule once onboard. The Program is complimentary during port days and advanced bookings are not required. 

For lunch during port days, Youth Staff will take your children to one of the ships' many eateries (with parental consent).

Children are welcome on all Princess cruise ships, but facilities vary. Pacific Princess does not have dedicated Youth Centers or Teen Lounges. Programs are available on this vessel only when 20 or more children ages 3 to 17 are sailing.
