One of the biggest investments Princess made in Caribbean Princess during its 2017 refurbishment was in the kids' spaces onboard, replacing the previous facilities with the line's Camp Discovery program. The program is divided into three age groups: 3 to 7, 8 to 12 and 13 to 17. Programs typically run all day on sea days, with an hour off for lunch (noon to 1 p.m.) and dinner (5 to 6 p.m.). Port days offer longer hours and include lunch.
Princess does not offer in-cabin babysitting, but does offer evening group "kidsitting" from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. every night (except on the last night when it closes at midnight). The cost is $5 per hour, per child.
Kids ages 3 to 7 are welcomed in The Treehouse, a brightly colored forest-themed space, where kids can participate in arts and crafts, treasure hunts and learn about animals through the line's partnership with Discovery Communications and the Animal Planet TV channel. All children must be signed in and out of the club by their parents or an appointed guardian.
The outdoor-themed The Lodge is where those ages 8 to 12 go to hang out. Here kids can participate in science-related activities, arts and crafts, foosball and air hockey tournaments, and play computer games. Outdoor activities might include a free-throw competition on the basketball court or a shipwide scavenger hunt. Kids going to The Lodge may sign themselves in and out without a parent present.
Both The Treehouse and The Lodge are open on both sea and port days, and parents may leave their children in the club while they go ashore.
The Beach House is the space reserved for teens. It's more about hanging out than participating in activities, though there is a movie screen, dance floor and computer gaming nook, as well as Skee-Ball and air hockey. Afternoon and evening activities that might be offered include Xbox competitions, card game night, Guitar Hero tournaments, trivia and poster making.
