In partnership with Discovery™, Princess has developed engaging youth programming and wonder-filled center designs for cruisers ages 3 to 17. Each center within Camp Discovery has a different theme where kids make new friends and participate in cruise activities specially designed to help them play, huddle, create and discover.
The Treehouse (ages 3-7) and The Lodge (ages 8-12)
Sports, Games, Physical Activities
Places, Animals, Science
Fun Interaction with Peers
Arts, Crafts, Inventions
The Beach House (ages 13-17)
You won't want to miss our Rock the Boat Party. It’s the occasion to dress up, stroll down the red carpet and flash your VIP badge, then enjoy an evening of mocktails, awards and celebrating with your friends.
Give your skills a workout in our video game tournaments. Play to win in air hockey, foosball and ping-pong. Or compete in outdoor sporting activities like dodgeball and basketball tournaments.
Perfect your moves with guidance from one of our crew dancers, then show what you’ve got at dance competitions and parties.
Movies and More
Get your scream on at Scary Movie Night, or catch some recent hits at Late Night Movies. Or cast yourself in a whole new light with teen makeovers and glitter tattoos.
Club 1820 (ages 18-20)
Imagine a secret society. Only those invited can join. Guests ages 18-20 will learn the secret handshake and be granted a special code word to unlock an exclusive list of Club1820 events made just for them. No parents, no little siblings, no official hosts.
For the Whole Family
Discovery Family™ Shore Excursions
Princess is proud to offer shore excursions that are not only fascinating experiences for the whole family, but recommended by two of the most trusted names in exploration – Discovery™ and Animal Planet™.
Voyage to the Stars
With top-deck stargazing, an indoor planetarium with real-time views of planets, stars and galaxies, Camp Discovery activities, expert insights through Encounters with Discovery at SEA, engaging stateroom content and more, there are many unique experiences for every family to enjoy.
Animal Planet™ invites local animals onboard
Many of the most fascinating inhabitants of the ports you'll visit aren't human at all. Introduce them to your family, as Animal Planet™ presents some of the wildest meet-and-greet gatherings at sea — including Puppies in the Piazza on Alaska cruises, and Parrots in the Piazza in the Caribbean.
Parents Night Out
Late-Night Group Sitting
For your convenience, group kidsitting is offered in the Youth Centers. Kids can relax and watch movies or play games with their friends while mom and dad have a relaxing night out.
Princess offers a variety of opportunities for kids to eat with their new friends and Youth Staff, while parents enjoy dinner on their own.
Princess also welcomes babies, toddlers and preschoolers to the world of cruising with services and amenities that make life easier for their families as well. These young guests are welcome in Camp Discovery when accompanied by a parent. Mini-Suites and Full Suites offer full-sized bath tubs, and wash bins for showers are available. Staterooms with balconies are perfect for naptime. You can request high chairs, booster seats and cribs. We also provide complimentary jarred baby food. And fresh, pureed foods (fruits, veggies and rice) are available in the main dining room, specialty restaurants, and Horizon Court or World Fresh Marketplace.
