Our granddaughters who are 11 and twelve now, loved the kids club on their cruises on Oceana. When we took them they went as per our instructions to see if they liked it but no they didnt. When their mum and dad took them on Ventura they again were told to go and see if they liked it, no way was the response. But Im afraid thats our granddaughters! They are growing up rapidly now and are frightened of missing out what the grown ups are doing. Not all kids are like ours. I would say that for younger kids the clubs are brilliant Maybe you have two who will love the clubs. Maybe not. But give them the chance to find out! Otherwise they will stick to your sides like glue. Have a great time regardless.

There isnt a facility to leave them while you go ashore unfortunately, a named adult must remain on the ship at all times.

My 4 & 6 year olds LOVED the kids clubs on board Ventura. They were eager to go as soon as they had finished breakfast and we had to bribe them to come to the pool with us! They went back after they had their dinner at 5pm which meant we could enjoy our meal as we were late sitting. They brought out duvets and watched DVDs to wind them down till we picked them up. We could have signed them into slumber time till midnight but never did so. My 9 year old neice (big family holiday!) loved her kids club even more and she made lots of new friends. Her club took them for dinner too. My 13 year old nephew spent most of his time with us but did enjoy his club when he went, he just likes adult company more! He loved coming to dinner with the grown ups every night and dressing up. We couldn't leave the kids on board whilst we were ashore, my parents stayed on board for Rome as they had been before and we all went ashore for the other ports. Hope this helps.

Watching the Royal wedding this weekend, and looking at the lovely outfits, I started to think about what I am going to pack for my Azamara cruise next week. Choosing an outfit for any special occasion can be daunting, and time consuming, and a Royal Wedding must be stressful to say the least but packing, for a holiday is another thing altogether!The first cruise I ever went on was Fred Olsen Braemar sailing from Southampton. Packing for that was easy, just take everything you want as there i...
