Hi there we travelled on Oriana last year when our son had just turned 2. He had a fantastic time!!!!!! the youth crew couldn't have been better they were just fantastic & he really enjoyed going to 'peter pans' He did not suffer any sort of motion sickness at all but poor old us were very ill! It was our 1st cruise & I couldn't really fault the ship for facilities for children. They provided bibs & sippy cups & baby cutlery in the buffet resturant if you asked for them. If you have booked a balcony make sure you've asked for a balcony net. I'm struggling to think of anything else that might be a help to you. What sort of cabin have you booked, we did struggle a bit for storage space but that was about it. I can't emphersise enough how great the youth crew were - if you are wondering whether or not to leave your child @ 'peter pans'. Don't forget mum & dad need to enjoy themselves too. We were able to get warmed milk from room service @ night & there are laundry rooms where you can use the washing machines & irons in there so that was handy. Your steward will put up the travel cot for you & all the bedding is provided. I hope you have a fantastic time!!!!

Your son will have a whale of a time in the Nursery - good news there is even a night nursery so he can have high tea and can be looked after while you have dinner 7 see the show if you want to. They lie down on mattresses in their pjs and we used to collect at midnight & carry back to our cabin. They have a lovely little safe pool for that age group with toys - enjoy.

After having my head bitten off yet again this week for simply doing my job, I thought it was high time to set the record straight about prices and supplements for single travels and inform people of the role of the agent, i.e me.In the cruise industry we have many guests in the higher age range, down to the relaxing nature of a cruise, the luxury element, and a lot of the time, because the non-retired can’t afford the time or the money during their work schedule to take in a cruise.Nat...
