Princess extends discount promotion, expands kids program

LOS ANGELES -- Princess Cruises extended its "Double Early Booking Discount" promotion through Feb. 14.

Prices start at $799 for a seven-day Alaska cruise.

The discounted fares are available on all Alaska cruises and for select dates on all of Princess' cruise-tour options.

The cruise line also introduced Princess Kids, an expanded on-board program for children ages 3 through 17.

Princess Kids is broken out into three age groups and includes complimentary in-port programs and lunch service, social events and educational activities designed by such organizations as the California Science Center and the National Wildlife Federation.

The in-port program eliminates previous baby-sitting charges, although group baby-sitting services are available from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. for $5 per hour, per child.
