Sapphire Princess' kids programs are divided by age group. Princess Pelicans, for the 3- to 7-year-old set, feature games, movies and crafts. Shockwaves is for those from 8 to 12 years old and Remix, with its own teen center curries favor with those 13 to 17 years old.
Kids' facilities are open on sea days from 9 a.m. to noon, 1 to 5 p.m. and then again from 6 to 10 p.m. In port, hours are 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and 6 - 10 p.m.
Beyond playrooms, there are outdoor wading pools for the young set and a small swimming pool for teens.
There's a video arcade tucked way down on Deck 6, between the casino and Princess Theater (you may be pleased to know that it's not housed smack dab in the center of the youth facilities and thus not perhaps such an easy temptation for kids!).
Kid-friendly activities take place elsewhere on the ship, too, including a "Wizard of Oz" sing-a-long one afternoon in Club Fusion. Group kid-sitting (for kids ages 3 - 12) is available for $5 per hour from 10 p.m. through 1 a.m. Pre-booking is required, and private babysitting is not available.
