Princess Cruises reports that it is extending the benefits of its Captain’s Circle Loyalty program to guests of all ages. The cruise line said that the move makes it the first and only line providing youth passengers with Elite status and complimentary Wi-Fi. 

All benefits of the program are currently being rolled out to youth guests, Princess said. These include the appropriate loyalty color being displayed on their OceanMedallion and cruise card, as well as complimentary Wi-Fi, priority embarkation and complimentary laundry. 

Princess notes that its most-traveled youth guests are nine-year-old Wyatt Wilkinson, the youth guest with the most cruises at 46, and 15-year-old Alexis Lavoie, the youth guest with 538 total days at sea.

Los Angeles-native Wilkinson was just a year-old baby when he starting cruising and traveled to the Mexican Riviera with his grandmother Renate Wilkinson, who introduced him to cruise travel. He's sailed to his favorite destination – Alaska – three times in the last three years.

A Canadian resident of north Montreal, Lavoie started earning his sea days cruising at just four years old. He sailed on a World Cruise in 2009 onboard Tahitian Princess and another World Cruise in 2011 with Pacific Princess. He also completed a 60-day South America cruise in 2013 onboard Grand Princess.
