Imagine that you could have some cool learning experiences with your family on a sea cruise? With Princess Cruise‘s new Discovery at Sea program, in partnership with Discovery Communications, you can. It’s happening now and they are offering some really cool exclusive tv content, excursions, onboard classes, events and parties.
We learned about all this recently at a preview event at Chelsea Piers. This partnership debuted this year and creates memorable vacation experiences for the whole family. Guests can enjoy stargazing to activities featuring Discovery hit shows, to really cool Discovery and Animal Planet shore excursions and Science Channel activities. Doesn’t it sound amazing? While Sea Cruising can be fun, this definitely amps up learning and can be terrific for families. As a former educator, this sounds like something that I would really want to experience with my family.

The newest offering to Discovery at Sea is Style at Sea with TLC, with help from fashion expert Stacy London. This new guest experience and branded content program was created as part of the line’s exclusive Discovery at Sea partnership.
Stacy London is known as the co-host on TLC’s What Not to Wear, the network’s longest-running primetime series. Style at Sea will provide style advice and how-tos to make dressing aboard a cruise carefree and fun.

From providing tips to those who prefer to pack light, to accessorizing a bathing suit, dressing up for a special occasion or applying make-up, Style at Sea with TLC will help take the guesswork out of how to dress for both day and night while on a cruise.
Style at Sea with TLC video content and articles will be available in early 2016.
