Default Pacific Princess SB Alaska with kids?

We are probably going to be booking a cruise on the Pacific Princess for next July. We will have a 14yr. old and an 11 yr. old with us. Has any one recently cruised on this ship from Whittier to Vancouver and were there many kids on board? We have been told they won't have a kids program available unless at least 20 kids are on board. We are choosing this ship because of the "smaller"cruise size but are afraid it will be a much older crowd, we are in our mid 40's.

tbrash,

We are probably going to be booking a cruise on the Pacific Princess for next July. We will have a 14yr. old and an 11 yr. old with us.

I have taken two cruises on Princess ships that did not have children's centers -- one in Europe (aboard the original MV Royal Princess) and one in the South Pacific (aboard MV Tahitian Princess). There were plenty of children, and children's programs running full bore, on both itineraries. Aboard MV Tahetian Princess (sister to MV Pacific Prncess), they used the Card Room as a teen center.

We are choosing this ship because of the "smaller"cruise size but are afraid it will be a much older crowd, we are in our mid 40's.

I would not be too concerned about that. Cruises to Alaska usually draw a pretty good spectrum of ages, including a lot of younger adults seeking the more adventurous activities like highlining and sea kayaking.

I believe that 2007 will be the first season Pacific Princess will cruise Alaska, so we can't speak from experience. You shouldn't have any problem with the amount of children.
