Star Princess and Golden Princess
On Princess’s Alaska cruises, kids learn about glaciers, endangered wildlife, and native animals in a Junior Ranger Program run in conjunction with the National Park Service—they can even earn a badge and certificate. The cruise line also teamed up with the California Science Center for a Science at Sea program—complete with experiments in marine biology, held in conjunction with the California Science Center. Junior chefs can take cooking classes too, and Princess is also the only cruise line that gives kids and teens the chance to practice their downward dog poses in a youth-focused yoga program.
Sample Cruise: Seven-night Alaska, round-trip from Seattle on the 2,600-passenger Star Princess, from $799 double occupancy. princess.com
