Ocean Village caters for any age of children..it is informal and they have a nursery and their own section on deck with good facilities.

I would certainly recommend Royal Caribbean for value for money, though I understand the new Thompson ships out of Palma Mallorca are good and great value for money.. My parents got a last minute trip for around £300 each for a week !! Cheaper than staying at home.. but if u want BRILLIANT facilities for the kids, luxury and great service for you, look at the Royal Caribbean bigger ships like Freedom of the Seas, Explorer and Navigator... I am sure some are doing Med this summer..

Cruises are MOST unsuitable for children of this age. i can't believe you are even contemplating it. Why not do what the children would like and go somwhere in Britain with a beach?? I believe adults with young children on cruises are just catering for their own selfish needs.

Sorry guys but I tend to agree with the Cardiff answer. I wouldn't honestly encourage anyone with very young children to cruise. One is because your whole sea trip will be taken up with looking after them and hence missing out on some the best bits of cruising, there are very few services avialable for very young children. Two, although we all love kids in moderation I could see that it might be an inconvenience for other passengers. Am I being too selfish? A further point is just how much luxury can a nineteen month old child recognise, let alone the younger one. Sorry for being a mardy-bum but that's my opinion. Neil Dow.

Do not chose RCI for children this age. Have just returned from Med on Navigator and several parents with children under 3 all had the same complaint - there are no facilities for this age group. They are not allowed in the pools and they do not have nappy changing facilites in the toilets. Fellow workers who have been on Ocean Village or Thompson ships have had good experience with very young children. Hope this helps.

Kids on cruises spoil it for other.

I can't beleive that last review!! Some cruises DO cater for children although there are some restrictions which you should look into. I believe Royal Caribbean have some very child friendly ships and they are kept entertained all day (there is loads for kids to do, I'm taking mine on my next one) so you can go off and enjoy some well earned time to youselves. Don't worry about people like the last reviewer being onboard as I'm sure they will avoid a child friendly ship like the plague! Go ahead and book one, you and your family will have a great time.

I would recomment Royal Caribbean Legend of the Seas, we have travelled on this line, I found them to be very good with children of all ages, and the ship is very lovely.We did do the med on this ship. I think that they do a very good deal for children under 12. Hope you have a fabulous trip.Jennife.

How loyal are you to your cruise line?

By Chris Halford

These days most major cruise lines operate a loyalty system and the more you cruise with them the more benefits you get on future sailings. Probably the most well-known is the P&O Peninsular club. Benefits range from discount on board to priority booking and exclusive on board benefits. But are they really all its made out to be or are we limiting our options by being loyal.Im going to focus on P&O because they are the most popular but a similar comparison could be made with other cru...

Calling all Small Ship Lovers.

By Nicola Milligan

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries. So Volunteers through tourism can help locals learn English and build...

The main reason is to visit her nephew and family, but while they are at work she loves to go off and explore. During this visit, she was also treated to a lovely weekend in Bali!As I sat looking through the pictures and listening to the stories, I was amazed at how much Singapore has changed. So, I have done a short interview with Jane, who has also kindly let me share some of her wonderful p...
