We've just returned from a cruise on the Braemar and there were a couple of families on board with children. There is a 'childrens room' onboard but I think it's more for young children. I'm not sure what the children did during the day but they never seemed bored whenever we saw them.
I went on a Fred Olsen Cruise last year and most people wereover 50 I didnt see any children.If they do a cruise for a family I wouldnt have thought there would be much for children to do at all as I didnt see any facilities and again they are not really family orientated.
You would possibly be better with an informal cruise like ocean village, NCL, priness or island, they really cater for kids.
I would stay away from Fred Olsen , have a look at more family orirntated cruise companies , royal caribbean , Island and possibly Ocean Village , These companies have lots of kids facilities on board , rci have a club that goes onto 1am ! Fred Oslen are a smaller company , however they are expanding give them a couple years and they will have caught up with the big ones !
Good Luck .. Michel.
On the black watch during summer holidays they have counsellors etc., but if you want loads to do go on one of the bigger shsips that have all the facililtie.
