Azamara - delightful small ships - 694 pax and children not catered for. Open dining and 2 speciality restaurants. Perfect. IMHO.

Azamara is not a child free ship like the Artemis and Arcadia, however as the previous post stated they do not cater for children. We are cruising with them in 2 weeks time and I'm expecting to encounter only a few on the ship.

No, they are not child free - but there are no childrens facilities at all and if you call Celebrity the agents have a prepared script advising people with children that it is really not suitable for them. So hopefully this will keep the little blighters away. Will be really interested in your review of her - as all ones I read are 5* - I hope to go on her in the autumn.

Although the two child free P&O ships do not have "Freedom Dining" it is still perfectly possible to request a "table for two" when booking your cruise! The Arcadia also has speciality restaurants that you pay a surcharge to eat at where you can also book a table for two on the night. I do not see the problem? Don't end up paying twice as much for your cruise when there is no need to! Freedom dining is not always what it's cracked up to be. Just read some of the NCL and Ventura cruise reviews! Happy cruising.

Artemis and Arcadia are child free ships. When you book you can tell them your table preference, I do know that it is on a first come first serve basis, so the longer you book your cruise in advance the easier it will be to get your first choice, but saying that I have never had any problems with my table preference number.
