Diamond Princess for Families

Editor Rating
Families
3.0

Diamond Princess' kids programs are divided by age group. Princess Pelicans is for the 3- to 7-year-old set; Shockwaves is for tweens from 8 to 12 years old, and Remix, with its own teen center, takes 13- to 17-year-olds. Tucked away on Deck 15, opposite Izumi Japanese Bath, the kids' facilities on Diamond Princess are smaller than on other Princess ships, as the Australasian demographic tends to sail with fewer kids. Despite its smaller size, the space has everything needed to keep children busy, including video games, arts and crafts, board games and more.

Children's activities are scheduled morning, noon and night, but parents are expected to take their children for meals. Private baby-sitting is not available.
