Keeping your children occupied and entertained while on holiday can be a tough task for many parents. While it can be very valuable to spend quality time with your kids, sometimes you just want a little time to yourselves. Your kids will no doubt also want to do their own thing too, meeting new friends and partaking in a range of fun and exciting activities. New ship Royal Princess, soon to be launched with Princess Cruise Line, has the answer to all these problems. With its amazing new children’s clubs and activity areas, your kids will have an amazing time onboard, giving you the chance to sneak away for some time on your own!
