We are taking our grown children with their families on the Star Princess over Spring Break. Our son's daughter just turned three, but our daughter's daughter won't be three until March 23--six days after the end of the cruise. The girls' hearts will be broken if they can't be in activities together. Will Princess accept the almost-three in their children's activities? We cruised on RCCL last summer and were told by their corporate office that the children's club would not keep two year olds, but would let them use the facilities if an adult was with them. Then when we got on board, the children's staff said absolutely no two's under any condition. To avoid another disappointment--especially since one is three now, but one is not quite there yet, we wondered if anyone could give us info.n the Star Princess or have had experience with their children's program.
Generally the cruise lines are strict about not allowing kids under the age of three to participate in youth activities. You could talk to the counselors once on board, but I would not go on the ship assuming your child will be allowed. It's disappointing but this seems to be the overall rules on most ships!

I am currently a Youth Coordinator with Princess Cruises on vacation. Your under 3 will be allowed into the Youth Center but a parent or guardian must always be with the child. I encourage you to go and enjoy our wonderful center on the Star. There is much to do including an ouside play area and a padded gym area inside the center. I hope you have a wonderful time!
