has one of the best kids programs at sea and it's one of the reasons
more kids are sailing with Royal Caribbean Cruise Line! An Alaskan frontier theme night and a trip to the Alaska State Fair
are just a few of the fun activities planned for kids. Youth ages
3-11 years will learn about the Alaskan culture by creating Kwakiutl
Sun masks and Eskimo oil lamps as part of the Adventure Art by Crayola
program. Knowing that different ages have different interests, they've
divided this supervised program into five age groups. It's the perfect opportunity for kids to have
fun with kids their own age and for parents to grab some time alone.
