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.

Well, this is a good question because recently a customer of mine came home from a cruise with Royal Caribbean and even on the formal nights some people where really casual. Trousers and polo shirts. Not even a shirt and tie!It seems that Royal Caribbean have really relaxed the dress code.Celebrity cruises ...

P&O Cruises recently announced that that would be building a 9th ship to join the P&O Fleet in 2020. This comes only two years after the Britannia was released and I am pleased to say that after quite a few problems she has become a firm favourite in the P&O Fleet.Hopefully P&O will take forward the feedback on Britannia but we are yet to see what this new ship will look like; all P&O have said is that she will be 180,000 Gross tons and carry 5,200 Guests. This is the larg...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
