Sapphire Princess offers various rooms for their kids programs, clustered on Deck 15 aft. The general hours on sea days was 9 a.m. to noon, 2 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 10 p.m.; on port days the facilities were staffed 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 7 to 10 p.m.
The entry-level program is Princess Pelicans, for ages 3-7, and activities include arts and crafts (T-shirt coloring), a disco night, scavenger hunts, ice cream and pajama parties. There was a small open-air splash pool for this facility.
Pre-teens age 8-12 were grouped into a program called Shockwaves, which featured arts and crafts, Playstation 2 tournaments, sports, a spelling bee, and scavenger hunts.
Teens played in Remix, and activities included T-shirt graffiti, dance parties, a casino night, DJ workshops, mocktail parties, teens-only formal dinners, and games like Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Pictionary, Scrabble, Jeopardy.
We were told that the age groupings sometimes shifted when a larger-than-usual component of kids were booked on an individual cruise. Group kid-sitting was also available from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m., for $5/hour per child.
