Yes there is a "kids club" on Oriana and also a night nursery so you will be able to enjoy all the on board entertainment and have a lovely relaxing holiday. Not having any children I am not sure about times etc but I believe they can stay in the night nursery until about midnight.

You are in for a treat not only will your children be able to go into the "kids club" while you have dinner you will be able to take in all the shows etc as I believe they "bed them down for you" and they can stay there until about midnight - not having any children I am not too sure of times etc but I do know people we have met on previous cruises have problems gettingtheir children out of the "kids club" as they have a fantastic time . Enjoy !!

Hi the kids club is open from 9am-12noon then 2pm-5pm 5:15pm is childrens dinner. club reopens at 6pm and so does the night nursery, which your children have to be settled before you leave them, the staff will give you a pager in case of any problems! we have been on this ship and out daughter was two at the time and she loved it, the staff are brilliant and we had no problems, we did not put her in the night nursery as we thought she was a little young. When we cruise now she goes to the night nursery which always has two members of staff!I hope this help.

The kids clubs are open from 9am till around midnight, they dont close at all, but activities are limited during meal times. Kids have to be signed in and out of the club by the same parent.. so you can be assured the kids are well looked after. Staff at the club even take the kids for their evening meal, so the kids get to eat with their friends. They will love it and you will find it really hard to get them to spend any time out of the clib.

This would be my worst nightmare.

Picture this ,on a cruise of a lifetime that you had paid a lot of money for you had sailed out of Sydney to Dubai with stops in Melbourne and was just entering the Indian Ocean when suddenly the ship more or less closes down !!!! There would be a dusk-til-dawn ban on any fun on deck. No deck parties, no movies under the stars, no late-night outdoor bar hopping or pool dipping.No lights, no party atmosphere, no lapping up tropical breezes on their balconies. NIGHTMARE !!Well this just happene...
