Princess Cruises To Launch New Family-Friendly, Interactive Top-Deck Area On Caribbean Princess

A new family-friendly, interactive top-deck area, The Reef Family Splash Zone, will open on Princess Cruises’ Caribbean Princess. The enhancements will be available from June as the ship sails the Caribbean.

Family Friendly Deck Areas

The Reef will comprise:

  • A water playground with a splash pool, assorted sprays and showers, and an interactive whale feature complete with running water from its tail
  • A multi-generational game zone including oversized activities such as giant Connect Four and Jenga, with a family-friendly bar serving mocktails and cocktails
  • An updated pool and jacuzzi
  • A variety of new, upgraded seating and furnishings ranging from single sun loungers to outdoor sofas and tables
  • New shade canopies and wind panels
  • Improved audio systems and lighting to give guests a better experience during evening events

Caribbean Princess already boasts a wealth of family-friendly features, which were expanded via a multi-million pound upgrade in 2017, including 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.

Ocean Medallion

Caribbean Princess was also the first in Princess’ fleet to offer the Ocean Medallion. The Medallion is a complimentary, automated piece of technology, the same size as a 10p piece, given to each guest, which enables features including:

  • Keyless stateroom access
  • A streamlined embarkation and disembarkation process
  • Enhanced interaction with crew members and other guests
  • On-demand beverage delivery

Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises’ vice president UK and Europe, said:

At Princess Cruises we pride ourselves in offering fun, engaging and relaxing family holidays. The Reef will complement the existing line up of family-friendly venues and entertainment available on Caribbean Princess, bringing people of all ages together in one enjoyable top-deck location. In addition, guests sailing on Caribbean Princess will really benefit from using the Ocean Medallion. From breezing through embarkation to being able to play a wealth of interactive games across the ship, means every family member can make the most of their time onboard with us.
