Yep we are going and we have children!!!!!!!! Beware. It is clearly denoted as a family friendly cruise in the brochure and it's school holidays. It costs us a fortune to take holidays now rather than take the children out of school so we expect respect! Don't worry our two are very good and looking forward to dressing up - something they don't often get the chance too. My daughter has wanted to visit norway for years, so it's a choice of hers as much as ours.

Let me add to that because it doesn't read very well! I meant it all tounge in cheek. FO are never child free boats it's just they don't tend to offer facilities for them so children are generally less in number. I understand hosts will be on board so you'll probably not find any of them any trouble at all. I can't imagine lager louts picking a fjord cruise with FO either. I am surprised you didn't know it was a family cruise but accept you may have booked separately from us - we used the FO brochure.

We booked this cruise for the same dates, Our children have now grown up however those that want child free cruises hopefully would not have booked this cruise in the first place.

Thank you for your comments, I would have expected Cruise Deals to have all the correct information on their ad. and so booked this cruise I'm afraid I don't do brochures - I work in a school and whilst I know all children will be and I am sure always are on their best behaviour. It will be a great trip for them and I feel cheered by your comments, but would still prefer to be child free!!

Friends of Dorothy!

By Robin Clarke

So I recently confirmed a Royal Caribbean cruise for a customer and his Husband. They are relatively new to the cruise market (excuse the pun) and as you can imagine he had plenty of general questions about the cruise such as activities and entertainment.In recent years the habit of using the friend of label has been increased to also include: Friends of Dorothy (FOD). With most cruise lines now catering for the LGBT market including a LGBT Community Mixer at the Champagne Bar on the Indepen...

Just back from my wonderful ‘home’ Mallorca even though I am not from Mallorca (not with a surname like mine anyway!)

The weather was great it was about 24 degrees every day which is perfect for walking about and sunbathing in too.We hired a car for the first few days as the other half doesn’t like transfers to the hotel from the airport he can’t stand being on the bus dropping eve...

Heading to the Caribbean?

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

With major hurricanes bartering through the United Stated and the Caribbean over the last couple of months I have received a huge amount of calls from obviously concerned passengers as to whether their cruise will still be happening, and if so will the itinerary still be the same.Having worked in the Caribbean for a couple of years with Thomson I have been in the middle of a couple of Hurricanes and dealt with the aftermath too from evacuating Islands, to holding the fort in hurricane shelter...
