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.

It Is an going problem, hygiene on board! And something I hate people not washing hands, on a ship this can cause huge problems, having recently come back from a Celebrity Cruise, I loved the fact they have staff working to make sure you do the basic things! In this day and age it is a sad problem for basic hygiene!It is not something you like to talk about, but were a bunch of germ-laden conveyors of infectious diseases. It doesnt take a rocket scientist to know the s those people you see tr...

Norwegian Cruise Line to Add ...

I find it hard to believe that given the amount of family friendly cruise options around these days, all of which include swimming pools, some even large scale on board water parks that it’s not compulsory for cruise companies to employ lifeguards, especially when you consider some of the recent tragedies that have occurred.Norwegian Cruise Line have announced that it will be joining Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Lines in employing certified lifeguards at all of the family pools acr...
