Star Princess for Families
Star Princess' expansive Kids Zone program is divided into two groups. Princess Pelicans (ages 3 - 7) and Princess Pirateers (8 - 12) take part in a wide variety of activities, from arts and crafts to Nintendo, to learning-based projects in conjunction with the ship's relationship with the California Science Center. There's also an enclosed area with a mini-basketball setup and a wading pool. Programs typically break up at mealtimes (to promote family togetherness), though there are special food-related functions as well.
Teens have their own program. Off Limits is geared for those ages 13 - 17, and the clubroom has a juice bar, jukebox, teen disco and big-screen TV.
One plus about Princess' kids program is that the activities staff arrange diversions while the ship is in port -- at no charge -- to give parents a chance to engage in the occasional kid-free day off.
