How would you rate the Princess Cruises Youth Program ?
Speaking as an observer since I don't have children of my own, it seems to work way too well. I have witnessed a few tugs of war between children who wanted to go back to the program and parents who wanted those same children to get ready for dinner, or to do whatever else was on their agenda. I also remember going to entrance to the dining room for a tour of the galley toward teh end of a cruise and watching a parade of perhaps a hundred cruisers who appeared to be under the age of six, whom I had not seen all cruise, come streaming out of the dining room under the watchful tutelage of the counsellors.
And I have never heard anybody -- parent or child -- say anything negative about the program, even on ships that did not have dedicated chidren's ceenters.
