Princess Cruises Reveals Royal Princess Youth and Teen Centres

Princess Cruises has revealed the new youth and teen facilities onboard Royal Princess that are sure to excite young passengers when the ship debuts in June. 

Royal Princess’ new offerings will add an extra level to the onboard experience for young passengers, with all age groups finding more space following the provision of dedicated outdoor areas, including a new teen lounge and a special fun area just for kids under three. 

“It's always important to us that passengers of all ages have a great time onboard,” Princess Cruises executive vice president Jan Swartz said. “Naturally we’ve included features on Royal Princess to make every moment of the cruise memorable for our youngest passengers – we love hearing them tell their parents that they can’t wait to come back.”

The kids and teen areas are detailed in the company’s latest video previewing Royal Princess, available at
