Not that we have any kids but we did this exact cruise at the end of March in 2006 and there were about 10 kids on the whole ship and I would say there was little or nothing for them to do. If your cruise includes Easter Hols then there will be more kids but there are no real facilities for kids = if they are aged over 9 or 10 then there is effectively nothing = upto that age then it is the usual face painting etc - I would not recommend this ship ( or and Thomson or Island Ships either ) for children at all as others offer far more.

This comes only two years after the Britannia was released and I am pleased to say that after quite a few problems she has become a firm favourite in the P&O Fleet.Hopefully P&O will take forward the feedback on Britannia but we are yet to see what this new ship will look like; all P&O have said is that she will be 180,000 Gross tons and carry 5,200 Guests. This is the larg...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
