We have travelled on P&O for the last two years and our girls are now 5 & 8. They are outside the door of kids club at 9am and we are not allowed to collect then before midnight or they are really naffed off. They do come with us when we are in port, and for lunch and then tea, whether that be children's tea or as is more usual with us on the first sitting in the restaurant (what girls can resist dressing up in posh frocks!!). The waiters are wonderful and they have their own menu to choose from. I cannot recommend P&O strong enough. There are parties on at least 3 days of a 7 day cruise and if you can't go the kids club take them for you. Photo's are in abundanceif you canot make it yourself.

Definately, a colleague of mine went on the ocean village and said there was alot of children on board and they loved it. Ncl are good ships for kids too, my manager is taking her 7year old on one to the Baltics next year. They have fantastic kids clubs etc. your best bet is to look at different companies websites and try the virtual tours to see for yourself. As a cruise co-ordinator i get lots of customers trying various diff cruises. the best i suggest are: ocean village, Ncl and royal caribbean, some itineraries might be boring for families so sometimes there maybe all the facilites on board but the kids are nowhere in sight.

Best place in the world for children - you put them in the kids clubs and won't see them all day! RCI is generally accepted to be the bext cruise line for children. check out their website.

We took our grandaughters on Independence of the Seas in May, they had a great time the whole setup is great for kids. The childrens clubs are very well run and our grandaughters want to know when they are going again .

Past Passenger Discounts for N...

By Jo Cunningham

The world of cruising has always offered past passenger dicsounts in order to promote loyalty but in recent years many cruise lines have scaled down their generosity.

Two nights on Indy..

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison  Ranaldi's blog

Last week I spent two nights on the newly revamped Independence of the Seas.We sailed from Southampton in glorious sunshine to Le Havre and back. This was my third time on board this ever-popular ship and I was keen to see the changes to her after a big refit. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 which had everything we needed for a comfortable break. I’m not generally a fan of mini-cruises. They offer an excellent way for someone like myself to see the ships but I do not think they are a g...
