If the line advertises that it has facilities for families look at the age groups it caters for. Be sure to check there are set aside facilities for the teens as they like their own space. If that is provided then the teens will get together, make new friends and have a great time. No cruise line wants bored teenagers rampaging around the ship upsetting other passengers !!! P&O, Ocean Village and RCI seem to get the most positive comments in reviews. I have used P&O and Ocean Village and found them v good. Ocean Village even provide shore excursions for teens. Much appreciated by both parents and teens. They also look after younger children while parents are on excursions. In other words dont just take agents say so (they may be selling on commission), check carefully in the brochure, look at the deck plans to see how much space has been allocated, and ring the line direct with any in depth questions. My teens did NOT want to go on a cruise. Suffice to say, a couple cried and one had a stiff upper lip when time came to leave the ship. They are still in contact with friends they made.

What Is Your Number One Priori...

By Freddie Moser

Freddie Moser's blog

So since finding out recently that I am going to become a dad for the first time (which I am probably foolishly ecstatic about), my priorities in life have taken something of a change of late!When I found out a couple of months ago, I started to look at my life. Where I was, what I have achieved, and what kind of future I wanted for my wife and imminent child.This little bit of soul searching has initially made me fixate at cash flow, which I’m sure is not unusual! So I have thrown myse...

Are cruise lines becoming sexist

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

Last week Aqua Expedition launched a new sensation but only for us ladies I’m afraid. They have come up with the idea of offering cruises just for ladies.They state……..‘With these cruises, women will have the chance to learn about new cultures and traditions whilst meeting new people who share the same excitement for adventure, whilst being able to enjoy a little bit of luxury at the same time.’Now forgive me for being a little lost with this fantastic opportunit...
