Grand Princess for Families

Editor Rating
Families
4.0
Grand Princess has programs for both teens and younger kids, and though its program is not as well designed as those on lines like Disney, Carnival and Royal Caribbean, it's adequate. Kids are divided into the Princess Pelicans (ages 3 – 7), Shockwaves (8 – 12) and Remix (13 – 17). Offerings for the younger set include crafts and games. Teens have a private clubhouse, nominal activities (we saw a lot of teens simply hanging out together on stairwells rather than participating in programs) and a whirlpool tub.

Parents get some alone time with occasional evening programs for young kids. Group babysitting is available at night by prior arrangement; plan on spending $6 per hour per child.

Princess does impose an age restriction: Infants under six months are not allowed onboard on most itineraries, and 12 months on "exotic" itineraries. Although the children's program is not available for toddlers under age three, parents can spend time with younger kids in the children's center, availing themselves of the toys, games and activities.
