Royal Caribbean are excellent for kids activities , with safe, well supervised clubs. Also a great variety of food from self service in the windjammer to the superb main dining rooms. Some RCI ships also have children's meal times (organised by the staff in the kid's club) which gives you a chance to eat in peace! I'm sure your 5 year old would meet new friends and have a ball. Evening entertainment is superb too - especially on the larger ships with an ice rink etc. We are taking our 6 year old grandson and his mum on Indy in July and can't wait! Check out Independence of the Seas which sails from Southampton to the Med and Voyager is good too - any Freedom or Voyager class have loads of activities, but the smaller ones are also good. Whichever you choose, watch for the age groups of the kids clubs as different lines have different ages and I know if your 5 year old is anything like our 6 year old, being in with the babies (e.g. age 2-5) will NOT be cool. I think RCI is 5-7 but check it out before booking. Whichever you choose - ENJOY!

Last July I went with family on Ocean Village 2, & the children were very well looked after & kept occupied & supervised. Also, the food, for the whole family--age range 5 to 68yrs-- was fantastic, both for variety & quality. The most amazing thing was that they never ran out of anything. The cabins we had were bigger & had far more storage than we'd had previously with RCL. I have been on The Independence too, & all the family are catered for fabulously, in every way.Enjoy your trip, whatever you choose.

Viking River Cruises Award...

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

Knowing that river cruise ships are much smaller and given that the facilities are smaller, you might be forgiven for thinking that the food on board is going to be nowhere as good, or varied, as on an ocean cruise, you would be wrong! I must admit, having seen the size of the galley on a river cruise ship I was astonished because the food that they produce in such a confined space is superb. You will honestly find something for every palette at each meal on board.Viking is one of the best k...

As you may well know, I live in Relleu, Alicante in Spain. But what you don’t know is why I decided to move here in October. I decided to make the move as I am currently a Student at The Open University and completing a BA (Hons) Degree in Business Studies and Spanish. So, I decided that moving to Spain would be my best chance to really master the language. At the end of the week there was a photo competition in which each class had to take a photo and submit it, I had the crea\tive ide...
