If you want something informal then I suggest you take a look at Ocean Village. They have 2 ships doing 7 night cruises every week in the med during September It does involve flights though, either to Palma or Crete. Their booking conditions say that children over 6 months are accepted although for some cruises it is 12 months minimum age - you should contact them to confirm which ones they are (possibly caribbean). For child facilities their web site states : 6 months – under 2 years Babies and toddlers are welcome at Base Camp as long as a parent or guardian stays with them. During peak season cruises you can also enjoy some ‘mum and dad’ time ashore and leave your little ones in the safe hands of the youth staff*. The advantage of OV is that their are no fixed meal times (buffet food is available 24 hours a day) so if you have trouble getting the little one to settle down you aren't going to miss your meal. Similarly, if you have to rush off at short notice you can pick up a fresh meal when you return. Cabins are also a decent size. You may wish to consider an outside cabin if you think you may be in there for longer than usual as the window removes the feeling of being in a confined space. What ever you choose have a nice holiday.

Royal Caribbean Spendour of the Seas Greek Isles Cruise from Venice, Sept 20th. Book the cheapest inside cabin you can get on a 'cruise only' basis(about £570 per adult), then book EasyJet (or similar) flights return to venice. we have taken our kids on cruises since they were 5 months old and have always enjoyed it.

All Aboard The Caribbean Princess

By Pippa Hayden

So last week was a pretty busy week for me. Living up in Lossiemouth I had a training course in Glasgow on Wednesday and a training course in Edinburgh on Thursday but the highlight of my week has to have been my Ship visit onboard the Caribbean Princess. She was in port in Invergordon for the day whilst on her 12 night British Isles itinerary so I took the chance to hop onboard and see what she had to offer.When I arrived I was greeted in the Piazza by John from Princess Cruise and some othe...

Lovely Eclipse Weekend

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
