Depends on how much you want to spend. We have travelled on a variety. Ocean village has great size rooms and excellant children facilities. Our friends had their 2 year old grandson with them! The Family rooms with bunks are a bit tight so perhaps a normal double with an easy bed would be better. Much nicer rooms.The entertainment is a question of taste. Look at the number of places cruises stop at. In the med. you can do a lot by yourselves by just doing the leg work before you go. For example the port for Rome you can get a train from which costs about 9 euros whereas the trips on board are from £50 per person!!!! Even going to Pisa is easy by train but if you want to go up the leaning tower pre book your tickets on line. We have also seen the children on Island Cruises thoroughly enjoying themselves. Remember if you are out of school holidays there may not be as many children as you might like for your 4 year old to play with but the staff are full of enthusiasm.

The Grand princess sail out of Southampton next year.If it is like its sister ship SEa PRINCESS you and your family will love it.Lovely sized cabins great food great entertainment and above all the children are well looked after if you decide to put to let your child go to the morning activities.Room service if you need it anytime night or day.Just one thing i would reccomend a cabin with a window.

My day out with Emirates..

By Lisa West

Just before Christmas I was invited to Birmingham Airport to take a look around Emirates Airbus 380 while she was doing her very quick turnaround from landing to take off.It seems each time the airbus lands at Birmingham it brings lots of joy and excitement! Our first sighting was just after 11 when we saw her circling the skies waiting for her landing slot, the view from the conference room was great and she came into land right in front of us! I must admit I am definitely not a plane spo...
