Ocean Village, they have baby sitting services and are casual dining so you are not set to be somewhere for a certain time.

P&O particularly the Oceana have really wonderful youth workers and a Creche and baby sitting - they are really very good.

Hi there, i would say that Ocean Village is an ideal family ship. It is casual, has self serve laundries on board in case kids have an accident. It is ideal for all age kids.

If you really want to enjoy the cruise and partake in all it has to offer, I'd leave the baby at home with some comptetent in-laws.

Oceana,P&O, I agree this is a fantastic ship,with excellent childrens staff and a night nursery too,that you can use,also in cabin listening srevice that you access via the telephone in your room. you will be able to use the childrens rooms,but you must be with your 1 year old. They also provide childrens only tea, which is great,with a good meanu, they also provide baby food,including tinned and fresh if you ask. Excellent childrens shows.I would wait until your child was 3 then you can make best use of the facilites,and you to can have a fantasic holiday, or go with friends or family so they can help ou.

Island Cruises from a "grandmothers" point of view would be the one to go with for young children. "Nan & Granda had no grandkids with them when we went but obviously were very observant with regard to the "little folk" . Very impressed.

P & O or Ocean Village have the best facilities for infants and kids. Both have really good baby minding facilities. Great at night if you want to eat out. You can leave the baby in the night nursery - they give you a pager and any problems, they will contact you. Very attentive and professional service.

Personally, I think cruise ships are definitely not for young children. Unless you are going to have your eyes glued 24/7 on them to make sure they are safe at all times and being a parent I know this is very nearly impossible - all the time. Take them to Cornwall.

Adonia back with P&O

By Gemma Coles

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries. Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...

Small ships are wanted!!

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

P&O have announced that their small ship Adonia is to return to their 2017/2018 season. The ship was much loved by the P&O faithful and when she left the fleet to help with humanitarian work overseas there was a big hole to fill as many of the P&O fleet are larger ships and P&O were losing some of their passengers to cruise & Maritime and Fred Olsen.From June 2017 she will start Mediterranean, round Britain and even an Iceland sailing. The smaller more interesting ports w...

The ship only has a 710 passenger capacity and is adult only making i...
