Have you thought of OceanVillage Two? It is no dressing up, eat when you like etc. It is worth looking at their website. Which ever you choose have a great time after all life is what we make it eh. Look forward to hearing about your holiday. Sally.

I find Princess Cruises are a less formal version of P&O. We have travelled with both and find Princess give the same level of service, but are just a little bit more relaxed.

Definitely OV or OV2. I will never forget cruising on OV and seeing a party of Downs Syndrome youngsters, who were shepherded by a small team of heroes and heroines. The entire crew and entertainment team worked tirelessly to give them a special time. It culminated in the fantastic Robbie Williams tribute act (forgive me but your real name has slipped my memory) getting off the stage and dancing with a beautiful girl who clearly thought that he was the real thing (he's BETTER actually!!). The audience erupted with applause and I freely confess to shedding loads of tears it was so emotional. They brought joy to every day when we encountered them around the pool. It isn't just good food and dazzling service that makes a cruise memorable and this is one that will live with me for ever.

Thank you to everyone. I'm checking the ov & ov2 out now as we speak. This forum has been a great way of saving time trawling through web pages of cruises. I'm really looking forward to booking something now as my son keeps pointing out the cruise adverts on tv and mags! Thanks once again everyone x .
