Hi - my daughter is 11 and we have just been on Ventura, but sailed on Oceana when she was 8 & 9. She had an absolute 'ball' the word 'bored' NEVER came into the holiday. The childrens club is brilliant. She did everything, creative activities, chill out video time, pool games, competitions, televised Game shows like Blind Date, Oceana's Got Talent, Miss Oceana (a competition where the boys get dressed up as glamorous girls - my son won one year!!!!) Children can go for kids tea at around 5.30 if they dont want to go with the parents later. The club runs from around 9.30am till midnight every night. She made lots of friends which was good, as when you went to the beach there were familiar faces around if she wanted to go and play with them. The staff are brilliant! Its really relaxed - we would show her where we were on deck and she would come and o as she pleased. Have a geat time - I'm sure your daughter will!!
From their website "For children and teenagers (9-12 & 13-17 years) we arrange a full programme of activities, quizzes, deck sports, pool games, competitions and discos. Their clubhouses have music, videos, games, computers and interactive arcade games - all great fun and sure to keep older children occupied." perhaps you will get more from a family who have been on the ship recently.
