Princess Cruises’ brings adventure to the sea with Camp Discovery

20 February 2020

Princess Cruises partnership with Discovery™ looks set to once and for all banish any chances of holiday boredom for kids with the new Camp Discovery. The programme of engaging activities and wonder-filled centres is both fun and educational, inviting kids to learn a breadth of useful skills and knowledge while they have fun on the high seas and in port.


Thanks to the exclusive partnership between Princess Cruises and Discovery™, the universally adored brand will be brought onboard for young guests to enjoy at Camp Discovery. This will be a place for early explorers to learn about the world and discover new interests as they meet new friends.

Kids cruise activities

When cruising with Princess Cruises, kids are invited to take a step inside the world they see on TV and discover even more through Camp Discovery and the range of educational activities available there alongside the more traditional kid’s club favourites. All activities have been carefully selected to spark curiosity, fuel creativity and inspire an active life. Here are just some of the highlights:

Opportunities to learn

They say, ‘every day is a school day’ and when you’re sailing with Princess Cruises that is absolutely true. With the opportunity to learn about the natural environment and wildlife of the destination you visit through the Animal Planet Endangered Species and Glacier Bay Jr. Ranger programmes, your kids will develop a genuine love of nature and an appetite for learning.

If animals pique their interest, uncover ferocious secrets in Shark Attack and learn squid anatomy in Just Squiddin’ Around with Animal Planet™. Or, if your kids are budding scientists, they can learn the science of magic or become an engineer for a day through programs with the California Science Center, home of the Endeavour Space Shuttle.

The Reef Splash Zone

Having debuted on the Caribbean Princess in June of 2019, the Reef Family Splash Zone, is the perfect place to relax, have fun and enjoy the water. An interactive splash pad with a giant whale feature will entertain kids with showers, sprays and a water jet shooting out from the whale's spout! Oversized backyard games in the all-ages game zone set the stage for some good-natured family competition.

After a playful session at the Reef Splash Zone, celebrate with some scrumptious mocktails for the kids and refreshing cocktails for the parents at the kid-friendly bar area, then retire to a comfy sun lounger or sheltered shade canopy for some rest out of the sun.

Port excursions

Each port of call offers the chance for families to learn something new about our world, and the people and other creatures with whom we share it. Available exclusively to Princess Cruises guests, Discovery™ Family tours capture the attention of all ages and set their imaginations racing with inquisitive thoughts. Many excursions provide hands-on opportunities to enrich your understanding of the destinations you visit, including features specially designed to appeal to 3–12 year-old guests.
