Princess Cruises launches family zone on Caribbean Princess
By Liz Jarvis | 13 Feb 2019
In a bid to attract cruisers with young children Princess Cruises has announced that a new family-friendly, interactive top-deck area, The Reef Family Splash Zone, will launch on Caribbean Princess in June.
Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises’ vice president UK and Europe, said: “At Princess Cruises we pride ourselves on offering fun, engaging and relaxing family holidays.
“The Reef will complement the existing line up of family-friendly venues and entertainment available on Caribbean Princess, bringing people of all ages together in one enjoyable top-deck location.”
Among the features of The Reef are a water playground with a splash pool, assorted sprays and showers, and an interactive whale feature complete with running water from its tail; a multi-generational game zone including oversized activities such as giant Connect Four and Jenga; a family-friendly bar serving mocktails and cocktails; and an updated pool and jacuzzi.
Caribbean Princess already boasts a wealth of family-friendly features, which were expanded via a multi-million pound upgrade in 2017.
They include three youth and teen clubs, each themed around Princess’ partnership with the Discovery Channel; activities and games for children such as hands-on science experiments, mini golf tournaments, talent shows and stargazing; and interconnecting staterooms for use by larger groups of family and friends.
In addition, the ship was the first in Princess’ fleet to offer the Ocean Medallion, the complimentary, automated piece of technology which enables keyless stateroom access, a streamlined embarkation and disembarkation process, and enhanced interaction with crew members and other guests.
“Guests sailing on Caribbean Princess will really benefit from using the Ocean Medallion,” added Tony Roberts. “From breezing through embarkation, to being able to play a wealth of interactive games across the ship, means every family member can make the most of their time on board with us.”
