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.

Fred Olsen and me! A match mad...

By Holly Crabtree

Holly Crabtree's blog

After recently returning form a 6 day adventure to the Fjords on Fred Olsen Balmoral it is easy to see why people have such affectionate things to say about them. Many of my colleagues feel the same way regarding Fred Olsen. It is just the feel of the ship when you embark it just feels like you are back home. Maybe this has something to do with the smaller ships so much more personal and so much more warmth than the larger ships.I sailed from Newcastle which was fab for me living in Leeds , o...
