Went on the Ocean Village to the Caribbean 2 years ago and whilst disembarking 5 days before Xmas 2005, we were informed that the next cruise, over the Xmas period, included over 400 children. There are no formal nights whatsoever on the Ocean Village, however, there are 2 eating places, one run by the TV Chef James Martin, that can cater for for the "special" night. Gwyn James 22 Dec 0.

If you want facilities for children with masses of choise then try Royal Caribbeans new big ships Freedom of the Seas etc, you still have some formal options if you want to experience them, but not compulsory. There are also loads of Dining options for everyone.

Norwegian Gem is great - no formal nights, freestyle dining in a choice of 12 restuarants (some with an additonla charge) but also off the Garden Cafe an area with lower seating and tables and its one (restricted) buffet.

Hi Happy Christmas. Ocean village is wonderful,we were amazed at the amount of things for the children to do ALL day EVERY day, so much so you hardly ever saw a child onboard till meal times !!!!! 100% recomend. we are going back next year.no formal nights.

Island Star and Island Escape are reasonably priced, informal and have lots of children on them during the school holidays.

Carnival cruises have the option of formal nights and non formal and there is plenty to do on board ship for the children and adult.
