I guess this cruise line will be great for
senior people, but not the best for family with young children. This was my main
concern for this trip.
Six people in my family went for this cruise, including my 5 year old daughter and 7 year old son. This was our third cruise, but the 1st cruise with Princess. The children activity area was spacious and well facilitated, but the children programs were not the best. My two kids were in two different age groups. Both programs was more like baby sitting programs, not educative and fun like the other two cruise lines we experienced. My children were bored after few sections.
My kids enjoyed the shows in the main theater for the first few nights, the last night we were all there again watching the farewell show for all ages. We were shocked when the director dressed like superwoman with two water balloons in his bra on stage, then someone poked the balloons. One manager kept grabbing the other female manager's breast, the female manger striped several layers of the male's underwear... This is not adult night, it was the farewell show, and there are quite few children in the audience. It is a shame they put such a show on stage. I hope Princess will have more consideration for the children on board, and have shows be more family oriented when it is for all ages.
