Are you getting excited for Shark Week?
The 30th anniversary of Shark Week debuts on July 22 on the Discovery channel.
Local Mom Scoop and Local Kid Scoop were invited aboard the Carribean Princess Princess Cruises located in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to experience the celebration at sea.
The day event was full of SEA themed activities and programming with special guests and appearances for the whole family on June 9th.
The new Discovery at SEA Program, in partnership with Discovery™, Princess Cruises (www.princess.com) program kicked off during this event.
The program offers a variety of events, promotions, themed culinary offerings and exclusive onboard festivities all surrounding Shark Week.
Families on Caribbean Princess sailings from June through September out of Fort Lauderdale will experience a fully immersive experience honoring these magnificent sea creatures and Shark Week.
Cruisers are greeted with Shark Week themed experiences. Elevators, restaurants and casino tables will feature the celebration of 30 years of Shark Week. You can see the interior of an elevator above.
Guests will also get to view the exclusive 2018 programming of Shark Week. It’s available now on the Princess Cruises prior to it airing on the Discovery Channel during Shark Week starting July 22.
Children and teens will have shark-themed fun in the newly redesigned teen and youth centers called Camp Discovery.
Kids ages 3 to 17 can receive glitter tattoos and shark face painting. They can also create arts and crafts to take home, including shark teeth jewelry and shark clay models. For the adults, specialty cocktails have also been carefully curated on-board including a Shark Attack Margarita and the tropical Great Blue Shark.
