  • Kids Programmes

    CHILD DINING

    P&O Cruises will offer a separate children's dining session if the main dining room exceeds numbers due to children. Passengers will find out once they are onboard if this will be the case. It is suggested that passengers with children book the early dinner sitting of 6pm.

    Pacific Princess children automatically sit with adults for dinner. The
    Princess has never had a seperate dining session for children.

    Childrens Activity Programmes

    Your kids will tell you this is their best holiday ever. Why Because our three on-board Children's Centres* have the coolest ways to entertain your little ones and teens. In fact, there's so much to do in one day that we publish a daily newsletter just to fill you in. Our experienced Youth Activity Team loves organising the most awesome activities. And they take fun seriously, which means our staff are qualified to look after your children, in a safe and secure environment.

    Fun for all ages
    TC and Skipper
    Our two lovable characters, TC and Skipper, star in their very own Junior Cruises Show which is suitable for the whole family to enjoy. All shows are held in the Turtle Cove and Shark Shack Children's Centre.

    Ocean Friends Club
    In association with Sydney Aquarium, Ocean Friends Club features a fun, educational programme of interactive 'touch and feel' activities, art and craft and energetic games. Kids learn about the marine environment and its many inhabitants. At the end of the cruise, children who take part receive a free entry pass to Sydney Aquarium (conditions apply).

    Travelling With Infants
    Infant travelling with two adults paying the standard twin fare:
    The infant will be charged at the applicable upper child fare when travelling with two adults paying the standard twin fare.

    Infant travelling as the second passenger in a twin room:
    An infant travelling in a twin cabin as passenger two will be charged the full adult rate.

    * Group child-minding from 10:30pm to 1am is at a nominal charge of AU$5 per child per hour. Due to limited facilities on board, we cannot guarantee your child's participation in the Children's Centres. While we will make every effort to accommodate all children, entry into the Children's Centres is on a first come first serve basis. Children must be toilet trained. Children's Centres vary from ship to ship and hours may differ.

    Have Fun & Learn

    Our unique Kids' Club* programs have been developed with guidance from professional childhood academics, with a focus on the sorts of can't-wait-to-tell-my-friends-back-home type activities you wont find anywhere else. We also limit the number of children onboard each cruise to ensure everyone receives an even higher level of care and attention.

    Here's just a sample of the activities on offer:

    Turtle Cove (2-6 yrs)
    * iPad activities
    * DUPLO® zone
    * Arts and crafts
    * Movies and cartoons
    * Talent shows
    * Theme nights
    * Mini Olympics
    * Sleepyheads storytime

    Shark Shack (7-10 yrs)
    * iPad activities
    * LEGO® zone
    * Arts and crafts
    * Movies and cartoons
    * Scavenger hunts
    * Jewellery making
    * Dance lessons
    * Karaoke

    HQ & HQ+ (11-14 & 15-17yrs)
    * Stop-Motion film making
    * Teen jam music sessions
    * Sports competitions
    * Movies
    * Theme nights
    * Karaoke
    * Talent shows
    * Dance classes

    Toddlers who are two years old and toilet trained can now join in all the fun at our Turtle Cove club, previously only open to kids aged 3 and up.

    Kids can now move between the different clubs to play with their siblings or friends. Parents should be aware that activities in each club are tailored for the age groups listed but if their 6 year old wants to play with big sister in Shark Shack, now she can!

    Entry to the kids’ clubs is free and the clubs are open each day until late, including port days. Late night babysitting is also available for a nominal fee.

    Parent's Responsibilities

    For your child's comfort, enjoyment and security, DO NOT leave him/her in the child care centre for extended periods(especially when in port) as it often unsettles the children. It is suggested that three hours without spending some time with the parents is a maximum. If your child does become upset or distressed, Cruise Staff will contact you so you can pacify your child.

    Special Food for Infants

    A limited range of Heinz baby foods, both "junior" and "strained" plus various infant formulas are carried onboard and provided at no charge. Special requirements should be advised well in advance so the Cruise Line can ensure that they have stocks onboard. Baby food and baby bottle preparation is to be carried out by the parents in their own cabin area pantries.


    NB: This information relates to the Pacific Sky, Pacific Sun and Pacific Star. Please see Princess Cruises for information relating to the Pacific Princess.
