Princess Cruises has opened a family water playground on the top deck of the 3,140-guest Caribbean Princess cruise ship.
The Reef Family Splash Zone includes a water play area, newly-refurbished pool and a lounge area.
Within the Reef Family Splash Zone itself there is a Winnie the Whale’s splashpad (an interactive water playground including a splash pool, water sprays and showers). The whale rains water from her fluke and sprays it from her spout.
Winnie is also part of Princess’ ‘Animal Planet’ endangered species programme in its Camp Discovery Youth and Teen Centres, where children learn about the anatomy of humpback whales
The water park also includes a refurbished spa and bar area including a family pool and Jacuzzi. ‘Morgan’s Bar’ has opened with a new child-friendly mocktail menu with drinks on offer such as ‘Crazy Coconut’ and ‘Berry Nice to Meet You’.
Parents will be able to keep an eye on their little ones from a new outdoor lounge area with a range of seating and relaxing options, from single sun loungers to sectional chairs and sofas with tables. The space also has new fixtures, finishes and canopies offering plenty of shade.
There’s also a multi-generational game zone with oversized activities such as giant Connect Four and Jenga .
Directly below The Reef in the Camp Discovery outdoor area, children can interact and explore with a destination-themed water table.
It features the many locations and iconic landmarks Princess visits including the Sydney Opera House and Golden Gate Bridge and also highlights how a cruise ship moves through water, waves and weather.
Caribbean Princess boasts a wealth of additional family-friendly features following her refurbishment.
They include three youth and teen clubs, each themed around Princess’ partnership with the Discovery Channel; activities and games for children such as hands-on science experiments, mini golf tournaments, talent shows and stargazing; and interconnecting staterooms for use by larger groups of family and friends.
Caribbean Princess was also the first ship in the Princess fleet to be fully OceanMedallion-activated.
The multi-award winning OceanMedallion, which is the same size as a 10p piece, has been designed to deliver an entirely new level of service and create a holiday that is more simple, effortless and personalised.
It supports a number of features such as a family and friends locator, which allows guests to easily find other people onboard.
“The Reef Family Splash Zone forms part of our ongoing commitment to offer families a fun and relaxing onboard holiday,” said Tony Roberts, Vice President UK & Europe, Princess Cruises’.
“Caribbean Princess now has a wealth of features designed to appeal to guests of all ages, perfectly complementing the stunning destinations the ship sails to.”
