Two P&O ships cater for children, and welcome them aboard.

You've been with one of the best for children, RCI and further to that I would suggest Celebrity and Princess both of which offer great childrens activities and certainly, as far as Celebrity is concerned, better food but they are more expensive. As I understand it that period is already well subscribed to so booking the cabin you want is becoming more difficult (and no, I'm not an agent) If you have a choise a couple of sea-days might be appreciated by the children as there is so much to do onboard.....Good luck...Id.

Ocean Village is really good for families, but could be a bit of a culture shock for you coming form royal caribbean but the kids would love it.

RCI without a doubt would be the most suitable - the Voyager class ships in the Med [Navigator and Voyager] have the most activities such as the ice skating rink and the Johnny Rockets burger bar - they would love it. But as Neil and Ida say, RCI is pretty sold out already for 4 berth cabins during the summer school holiday 08 season! So be quick.

We have just returned from 14nights carribean with sea princess. My children are 13 and 9 and they were fantastic with them.They had the kids clubs, cinema, movies under the stars etc. My 13 year old loved the freedom he had and said it was the best holiday he has ever had ( better than florida) You could even leave the kids onboard whilst in port if you wanted.They got their own itinery of what activities were at the clubs each day in the cabin at the beginning of the cruise.you could opt for them to have their own card sso they could get their own drinks etc and pay $4 a day for unlimited soft drinks ( very useful)and saves the mum can i have !!

Another cruise company to consider is Island Cruises. They are really down to earth and have lots going on for the kids and they are great for adults too.

Any Princess Cruise would be ok. We took our three sons and they were similar ages to yours. They had a fabulous time, the teenagers even joined in at the club!! We have also been on Oceana, and Oriana and both were fantastic for the WHOLE family.

Hello, we have been cruising for several years with our children and have taken them on Ocean village, P & O Oriana, Oceana and Aurora, NCL's Jewel of the Seas and the Gem and RCI's Splendour and Voyager. The children have loved them all and have had a great time on all of them, in fact on sea days we often do not see them from breakfast until dinner as they are having such a good time. There is so much for them to do and they soon make many new friends, Ocean village is the most relaxed of all of the ships, if you want waiter dining in the evening then I would avoid it as both the main restaurants are self service. Our children love the waiter dining experience in the evenings as the waiters have made them feel really special.Our son is a little fussy about what he eats but the waiters have always been brilliant and got him plain chicken or steak with whatever vegetables he wants, they have never made him feel awkward about asking for something not on the menu. The best facilities are definately on the newer and larger RCI ships with the rock climbing, ice skating, roller skating and mini golf although P&O's new ship Venturer looks as if it is going to have some good things on board. We are trying Princess next year to see what they are like. Whatever you decide on the children will love it, our children do not want to do any other kind of holiday.(They are now 15 and 17) Good Luc.

Norwegian Fjords

By Charlene Thackeray

I have never been to the Norwegian Fjords but we have just booked a little break on the Fred Olsen Balmoral for May. It is just a short 5 night sailing but as Charlie has a half day at school every Friday and then the Monday & Tuesday are inset days we thought we would get away.This will be our first time visiting the Fjords and our first time with Fred Olsen. This will be completely different to our last cruise in December on Allure of the Seas and I dont think Charlie realises how small...
