Cruising is a holiday the whole family can enjoy, and with the facilities on board specifically geared towards families and children, they are surpassing those that will be found at any land based resort.
P&O Cruises offer family friendly cruises onboard: Aurora, Azura, Oceana and Ventura. These superliners were made to cater for family enjoyment and with that in mind The Reef – a child and teenagers programme was created.
The clubs are split into 4 separate age groups:- Splashers age 2-4, Surfers age 5-8, Scubas age 9-12 and H²O 13-17 and are organised by well qualified 'Reef Rangers' who have extensive training and experience in planning a wide range of age specific play and leisure activities. Including a Circus school and DJ's mixing station on Ventura.
Children are welcome on all Princess cruise ships and most have dedicated youth centres for children aged 3 to 17 to enjoy a varied schedule of supervised activities. There's a play area and special outdoor deck exclusively for toddlers. Princess Pelicans, ages 3 to 7, Shockwaves, ages 8 to 12 and Remix, designed for teens aged 13 to 17.
Staterooms also are well equipped for the needs of the whole family. Many have additional beds which will either be folding down from the ceiling or sofa beds.
