Try p and o, the ventura has loads for all ages of kids from toddlers up to older teenagers, even a rock school and a circus school. my inlaws go on fred olsen and i don't think it's for children/young people.

You dont find many children or teenagers on Fred Olsen Ships and having been on one of them its more elderly people, I dont think they would have enough to entetain them, try a bigger cruise line.

Wehave just been on the Balmoral and it was definitely geared more to the older age group.. as was the Braemar.

Dont do it, they will hate you and you will have wasted your money. This cruise line is the LAST you should choose. Take them on Ocean Village, Independance of the seas etc. speak to a cruise agent that knows their stuff, get the brochures and discuss it with the kids. They (and you) will have a great time if the right ship is chosen. Teenagers are easily bored and worry that they will not meet anyone. On the right ship you will never see them again till you get off and they will want to go again next holiday. I speak from experience !!!!!!!!!

The ship is then christened with a bottle of champagne (done by pressing a button these days) as good luck.But this we...

Smoking Should NOT be Allowed ...

By Zara Kelly

Zara Kelly's blog

When we book a cruise, part of our job is managing the whole experience. However, this week I have been upset to hear reports that two separate clients have been disturbed by others smoking on their balcony, this was on two different ships ex USA. We all know at sea that smoke is going to blow around!First, let me explain that some cruise lines have a strict no smoking policy in cabins and on balconies, which my clients would have been aware of. Most cruise lines can charge you a cleanup char...
