When Caribbean Princess emerges from drydock in June 2019, for a season of summer cruises, The Reef Family Splash Zone will make its debut.

“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,” says Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president. “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.”

Located aft on deck 17, The Reef will offer many features, including:

  • Splashpad with Whale Feature—this interactive and inviting water playground features a splash pool, assorted water sprays, and showers. The focal point is an interactive whale feature, with ‘rain’ from its fluke.
  • New outdoor furniture—with a variety of seating and lounging options, from single sun loungers to sectional chairs and couches with tables, The Reef transforms into an inviting space for groups of all sizes aimed to be comfortable and conversational, also featuring new fixtures and finishes.
  • Refurbished pool, hot tub, and bar—the existing pool, hot tub, and bar will be updated to match the newly designed space featuring updated signage and contemporary artwork. In addition, just below the Reef on deck 16 in the Camp Discovery outdoor area, kids can interact and explore with a destination themed water table.
