On Princess Cruises, It's Easy To Be A Klutz

Everyone knows I'm a klutz. Who else would break their leg on the first day of a cruise? Princess Cruises has a different sort of klutz in mind, though, and they've joined forces with Klutz®, an innovative publisher of award-winning activity books for children, to provide high-quality arts and crafts projects for young passengers and their families while on board Princess ships. Klutz and Princess Cruises have developed custom-built kits designed to engage young cruisers in fun and creative activities.

Children sailing aboard Princess ships will have the opportunity to participate in up to seven Klutz activities during their cruise. Kids will be able to build their own storybooks; create lanyard bracelets; make “picture tags” for charm bracelets, luggage tags, or pet I.D.s; create fuzzy masterpieces with Velvet Art; craft paper flowers, weave friendship bracelets; or make Thumb Doodle thumbprint art. The new Klutz activities are offered for young passengers of all ages, and are scheduled during the youth center’s regular activities or during the ship’s family fun fair in the atrium, where all family members can join in the creative fun. Unique in the cruise industry, the new activities are available fleetwide.

In addition, Princess Youth and Teen Programs provide state-of-the-art facilities and an array of activities to keep kids and teens entertained. Young passengers enjoy a wide range of fun events for ages 3 to 17, supervised by a dedicated staff of youth activity professionals. The program offers three distinct, age-specific programs–Princess Pelicans (ages 3-7), Shockwaves (ages 8-12) and Remix (ages 13-17). Each group features an age-appropriate schedule, often with separate facilities. The program includes a number of special features, including Science on the Seas activities from the award-winning California Science Center, Yoga for Kids, and a Jr. CHEF@Sea program.Additional information about Princess Cruises is available on their website at For more information about Klutz, visit also offers hints for Family Cruising.
