Sea Princess Family
"The Fun Zone" on Deck 12 is home to facilities for children and teens, giving them access to Wii, PlayStation3, X-Box and board games. Themed nights -- including Survivor Night, Battle of the Sexes, Pirate Night and Princes/Princesses -- are hosted for the various age groups.

Those younger than 18 are divided into three groups: Princess Pelicans (ages 3 to 7), Shockwaves (8 to 12) and Remix (13 to 17). Children younger than 3 are welcome to play, but they must be under the supervision of their parents at all times. Children 3 and older must be out of diapers to participate without parental supervision.

Kids club facilities operate from 9 a.m. to noon, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Group baby-sitting is also available from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. at a price of $5 per child (ages 3 to 12), per hour, and children are invited to a kids dinner from 7 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. -- useful if parents want to dine alone. In-cabin baby-sitting is not available.

Compared with some ships (including the newer, bigger ones on the Princess fleet) children's facilities are limited to a couple of rooms, but the youth staff are enthusiastic, and the activities -- from hat-making to cooking demonstrations (for a fee) -- are quite imaginative.

Other than Ping-Pong tables, a ball court and splash pool up on Deck 15, and the large outdoor Riviera pool on Deck 12 -- which they tend to monopolize at times -- kids have no dedicated outdoor areas. Although the ship no longer has a dedicated arcade, kids have access to the aforementioned video games, as well as air hockey and foosball, right in "The Fun Zone."
