Caribbean Princess which was the first ship in the fleet to introduce the MedallionClass vacations experience will now bring another new fleet first feature. When the ship emerges from a major dry dock in June 2019 she will have a new water attraction.

The Reef Family Splash Zone will bring water fun to a new level by offering new ways to enjoy and cool off for all cruisers.

“In our latest effort to enhance our family offerings, this newly reimagined space invites families and kids to experience a multi-functional area to engage, play, reconnect.”

“The Reef is the ultimate spot for families of all ages to enjoy spending time together with new water features, recreational activities and lounge areas.”

The new feature will be located on deck 17 aft. The space will also update current Jacuzzi, pool, and bar. Here are all the details:

Splashpad with Whale Feature

This interactive and inviting water playground features a splash pool, assorted water sprays and showers where families can enjoy a day of splashing, laughing and playing. The focal point is an interactive whale feature, with ‘rain” from its fluke.
