collins - Answered a Question by bingley (14 Jun 08 19:56)

Royal Caribbean are not too formal but where parents want a break kids can eat with the kids club, however if you have a small dining table you will find lots of parents take small children into the main didning room and the waiters are genrally excellent with little children. Of course the Windjammer resturant can be used self service in the evenings too. I have done ocean village and royal caribbean and rate the latter as the best for adults and kids especially the new Freedon class ships both in the Caribbean and Med. Also I have to say from a safety point of view for mobile toddlers the newest ships have very few rails apart from on the very top deck with most decks being edged with safe high perspex sides as opposed to those tempting to climb traditional railings, but watch the main pool depths though, that's the only real small child hazard I have seen on The Freedon & liberty of the seas. Shop around RCI early booking deals are as good if not sometimes better than the late deals and I wouldn't worry about balcony cabins, the inside and outside cabins with third beds are ideal when sharing with children.

Living on a cruise is cheaper ...

By Dean Michaelides

So as the title suggests. Living on a cruise ship is actually cheaper than living in some major cities around the world including London, Sydney and New York. ( This is according to the Daily star so it must be true).A year long cruise setting sail from Southampton would cost from 24,000. According to one cruise company. Londoners could expect to save 5712 in living costs. In return they would be able to swap the busy tube and over priced accommodation for the life of luxury on board. As wel...

Could living on a cruise ship ...

By Sam Smith

Sam Smith's blog

I’ve heard theories that for the elderly living on a cruise ship could actually cost less than living in a private care home but I recently read an article which applies this theory to well, everyone – check this out!A recent claim believes cruising for 52 weeks could cost a staggering 35,000 less than living in a city. How does living on a cruise ship for a year sound? Taking 365 days out to relax, soak up the sun and do zero cooking and cleaning while actually saving you money c...

Fred Olsen & a few Guinness!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On 15th December we headed to Liverpool to join Fred Olsen Boudicca for annual Christmas Conference for 3 nights, the 1st night the ship stayed docked in port in Liverpool. This is a great city and the dock is right in the center opposite the Liver Building so within walking distance to the city. We didn’t have time to see Liverpool as we drove up in the morning leaving at 7am to arrive by 11am. Luckily the traffic was on our side so we arrived early. Myself & my colleague Teresa...
