We're planning on getting married and Princess is the only cruise line we have found that will marry us at sea. My question is whether Princess charges full price for infants/toddlers, as some of our family will want to bring their children with them. Is there any discount for kids under 2? I could call a travel agent or Princess but we're in the very beginning of our planning and I don't want harassing phone calls every week for the next year, asking us when we're booking the trip.
P.S. We've only been on one cruise before and it was on Carnival so this will be our first encounter with Princess.

sorry to tell you the best your gonna get is paying for babies as 3rd person. I went round and round with Princess online and over the phone about this exact thing. We are going on a family cruise. Our 20 month old grandbaby will be with us and the price went from 995.00 to 700.00 and that was after much aruging. I askes Princess if they just didn't want kids on the their ship. Oh no, they said they are family friendly. BS. But what can you do. We can barely get her to eat one meal let alone any of the good stuff.
No discounts on Princess for kids, even those under 2. Like the last person said, you will only charged the 3rd person rate, but it may still be a bit high. Another thing, Princess does limit the number of children under 2 that can cruise on any one ship at any given time. If you are going to follow through with your plans on getting married at sea, I would suggest you book very early. Make sure those with little ones do the same.
Actually, Princess is pretty much the same as all the other major cruiselines, you pay 3/4 person for kids, its just the way it is. I've also tipped the same when cruising with kids, staff does just as much work for them as the adults and earn those tips.
