Island Princess Family
Although there weren't that many children on our cruise, Island Princess is quite family friendly. On the Aloha Deck, there is a dedicated children's pool; Off Limits, a teen center and disco with special activities for passengers 13 - 17; The Fun Zone, a special refuge for the 8- to 12-year-old crowd; and Pelican's Playhouse, where youth center staff host a daily schedule of age-specific activities for those ages 2 - 7.

Programming includes what you might expect: scavenger hunts, ice cream parties and video games for the younger set, and for teens, late night movies, "pizza and mocktail" socials, and dance classes with the ship's professional dancers. During our cruise, a National Park Service ranger also gave a talk about Glacier Bay designed specifically for children.

Private babysitting is not offered, but there is late-night group babysitting available from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. for pre-booked kids ages 3 - 12.
