RCI is probably the best cruiseline afloat for children's facilities - rock climbing, ice skating, flowrider surf machine. NCL new ships have huge interactive WII. American ships seem to cater more for families and have a more 'cheerful' atmosphere. But Christmas 09 will not be on sale till Spring 08.

We took our 2 children similar ages around South america on the QM2 last year and were both concerned because cunard dont make much reference to children on board but the facilties for them were fantastic, the only thing is that there are no inbetween cabins your either inside 4 berth with bunks or queens grill, if you can afford it this would be the better option and was worth every penn.

I would advise doing a specific family type cruise, some comapnies offer these, i.e. RCI. Although some companies offer kids clubs etc, we found it was other passengers who were off, fine while the kids were locked away below deck, but how dare they use the pool or help themselves to the buffet etc. Now admittedly some folk do let their sprogs run wild, but generaly most kids know how to behave therefor should be welcomed on deck. RCI are fab and have lots of on deck entertainment, on the newer RCI ships they have specified decks just for them. Most staff love the kids (don't forget most have kids at home, and they are away from them) so they do fuss over them. We had teens and the night watch used to excort them back to the cabins for their safety after the nightclubs/cinemas ect finished. Food is usually no problem as there is so much to pick from. Hope you get what you want, happy sailing .

I took my grandchildren on P&Os Aurora and the Ocena and they had a fantastic time, I think for the younger child P&O is definately better as they really look after the youngsters,My grandchildren couldnt wait to get back onboard when we went ashore as they didnt want to miss any off the activities.they went on RCI with their other gran, but said it didnt compare with the activities on Ocean.

You may consider Carnival Cruise Line , we have been with them a couple of cruisesand had a fantastic time and the children were well looked after and seemed to have alot of fun.

I would agree strongly with Ross, we have been on many cruises but rci is by far the best for the kids!! My two boys are 13 and 9 and we are going on the liberty this month the boys cant wait.

How Much?

By Gail Ryan

How Much?Last week, out of the blue, I woke up on Friday morning with horrendous back pain.I tried to brave it out, taking pain killers and clamping a hot water bottle to my back! but nothing was working. I am not one for going to see my Doctor, in fact, before my visit on Friday, I had not been in over 2 years, so imagine my shock when I was given my prescription and my Daughter went to the Chemist to get it filled – 25.00!!I admit, I was vaguely aware that the costs of medicines had ...

Richard Smith's blog

 I was shocked at the end of last week when I started to hear reports that The River Cruise Line could cease trading.I have personally sailed with The River Cruise Line in the past and had a great experience doing so. I think that they offer very good value for money and offer a product that can cost a lot less to book than some of their more luxurious rivals.Unfortunately Diamond Shortbreak Holidays Ltd who were the parent company of The River Cruise Line announced that they had to go i...

What on earth is THIS?

You may have seen the recent news that Celebrity Edge is now on sale.We’ve seen some artists impressions of the ship and I have to admit, when I first saw this image, I thought it still had part of the scaffolding attached to it….Turns out it’s not scaffolding. It’s a ‘Magic Carpet’.Alrighty then…. So, this Magic Carpet is bright orange and looks pretty horrific but I think the idea is good!The Magic Carpet will be what makes Celebrity Edges prof...
