Kid cruise programs more than a babysitter
Children’s cruising programs are more than a babysitting service; they offer a multitude of activities and programs. Here of some of the programs:
Do you have a budding environmentalist? Paul Gauguin Cruises offers a “unique program that introduces families to the extraordinary natural wonders of French Polynesia through direct, hands-on, interactive experiences with marine and island ecosystems.”
Are you encouraging an up-and-coming Chef? Perhaps your child loves to cook and wants to know more about the culinary arts? Holland America has a Culinary Arts Center for Kids, where children can learn to make breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack items in 45-minute workshops.
Below is a sampling of what the children’s programs have to offer.
Princess Cruises offers a variety of activities for children aged 3-17, grouped by age. These groups have their own set of age-appropriate activities, often with separate facilities. Princess’s larger ships feature sprawling youth centers with indoor and outdoor areas. To make planning simple, a schedule outlining the next day’s youth activities is delivered to your cabin each evening.
Royal Caribbean offers nursery programs for children and toddlers ages 6-36 months. Their programs for children are divided into different age groups, ranging from ages 3-17.
