Princess Cruises expanded its partnership with Discovery Communications to create reimagined youth centers with new themes, experiences and designs.
This multimillion-dollar investment is rolling out fleetwide through 2018, with program implementation taking place in early 2017 and new center designs planned for installation during scheduled ship renovations. There are three center themes catering to specific age groups.
Camp Discovery, for ages 3-12, includes The Treehouse (formerly Pelicans) for ages 3-7 and The Lodge (formerly Shockwaves) for ages 8-12. The Treehouse consists of a bright, whimsical forest and animal-themed center with hands-on activities, while The Lodge is inspired by the great outdoors and filled with sports activities and fun places for kids to explore, hang out and lounge.
The Beach House (previously Remix), for ages 13-17, provides a contemporary, surf-themed lounge where teens can hang out and socialize.
To appeal to a wide variety of children, youth programs on cruise ships need varied programs and updated to today's technologies. Nice to see that Princess Cruises understands and is making the changes needed to keep up. I was impressed with some of their new upcoming offerings like 'MythBusters' science activities.
