INTRODUCING A REVOLUTION IN CRUISE DINING
Welcome to a new dining experience in cruising. One that gives you the freedom to choose where, when, and with whom you wish to dine. On Princess, you are offered a variety of choices. In fact, on some ships there are up to nine different dining options to choose from. And, more importantly, you can select a seating option that's based on your schedule.
WHICH DINING CHOICE DO YOU PREFER?
In the main dining rooms, there are two options for dinner: Traditional Fixed Seating and Anytime DiningSM. If you enjoy the traditional option of having the same table partners and waiters throughout your cruise, select Traditional Fixed Seating. This dining option features award winning Princess cuisine and offers a choice of two seating times, 6:30 p.m. or 8:30 p.m.
When you select Anytime Dining, you choose your dining style-whether you prefer to dine alone or with newfound friends-anytime between 5:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. This option features the same award winning cuisine as the Traditional Fixed Seating.
Whichever dining option you choose, you'll enjoy the same delectable menus and follow the same dress code in the dining rooms each night. Traditional Fixed Seating or Anytime Dining? The choice is yours. Simply let your travel agent know your preference when you book your cruise.
Enjoy the time-honored custom of afternoon tea with finger sandwiches, pastries, scones, cookies, music and whiteglove service. It's the perfect interlude between sunning and swimming out on deck and a star-studded evening at sea. Enjoy your choice of a wide selection of premium teas- from Earl Grey to your favorite herbal infusion. And of course there's coffee if you prefer. The choice is up to you.

All Youth and Teen Centers are fully supervised by staff of Youth Activities Coordinators.
Children are welcome on all Princess ships, but facilities vary. Pacific, Royal and Tahitian Princess do not have dedicated Youth and Teen Centers. However, when 20 or more children ages 3 to 17 are traveling on Pacific, Royal or Tahitian, they will enjoy a varied schedule of supervised activities organized by a Youth Activities Coordinator.
Children under 3 are not permitted in the Youth Center unless accompanied by a parent at all times. Youth Center staff cannot administer medication, bottle feed, change diapers, or provide meal service.* Private babysitting is not available on any Princess ship.
FAMILY CRUISING TIPS
Anytime Dining is recommended for families who want to dine together so that children may fully participate in the evening youth activities (starting at 7 p.m).
The dining alternatives aboard the ships allow parents the freedom to spend time with their children while they eat an early dinner in the pizzeria, in the 24-hour restaurant offering a special children's menu, in the stateroom with 24-hour room service, or in one of the many alternative dining locations. After taking their children to the supervised Youth Center, parents can enjoy dining on their own in the elegant dining rooms.
Many shore excursions have been selected with family cruisers in mind. Discounted rates for children and "family-friendly" activities are available to make the most of your time in port.
On embarkation day, the Princess Kids schedule for the entire cruise will be delivered to your stateroom.
Don't miss the orientation and registration meeting on the first night of your cruise. You and your children can meet the Youth Staff and learn more about the exciting shipboard programs.
