Alaska Cruise and Princess Cruise Lines

travel makers mdWant to take the kids on a once-in-a-lifetime cruise to Alaska? It’s a great destination to see some of the most beautiful glaciers, landscape and wildlife in the world and the kids will absolutely love it. When planning which cruise line is best for your family, consider Princess Cruise.

Princess Cruises divide the fun up by age group, making sure that the little ones have enough to do and are entertained on their big trip. There is a youth center for ages 3 to 12, where kids participate in age-appropriate activities, including dancing, movies, pizza parties, fairs and art projects.  

Teens need their own fun too, so teens 13- to 17-years-old can enjoy video games, movies, music and teen-only dance parties. They put on talent shows, have mocktail competitions and sports tournaments.

Taking the kids on a cruise is more than just activities on the boat and Princess Cruises believes that fun and learning go hand in hand. They offer a Discovery at Sea program where kids 3 to 12 go on such fascinating adventures as whale watching, roller coasters building, and squid dissecting. A trip to Alaska wouldn’t be perfect without taking the kids to an off-the-boat excursion to go gold mining.

They have also made sure to cater to the picky eaters with kids-only dinners that are offered on select nights. They snack on pizza and ice cream, while teens have formal dinners made just for them. Speaking of food, in addition, kids can go behind-the-scenes” in the shipboard galleys with the Jr.CHEF@Sea program, where they learn how to decorate a cake or make a fruit pizza.

The National Park Service, Princess’ Junior Ranger program brings Glacier Bay and the Alaska wilderness to life for thousands of children and after completing the program, the Junior Ranger receives a ranger badge and certificate. In the Pete’s Pals program, kids learn about environmental preservation and humpback whales, white pelicans, sea turtles and bald eagles.

When choosing a room, families need enough of space for the little ones and some private for them. The Princess Cruise balcony stateroom is ideal.  It provides a view of the ocean which the kids will enjoy and plenty of room for the kids to relax and play games or watch television on a 42-inch screen. There’s a separate living room area and sofa.

Princess Cruise lines makes sure to accommodate families and children in order to create memories of a lifetime.
