P&O and Princess are sister cruise lines, P&O is targeted more for the British market while Princess is targetted for the American market, the shows a more glamerous, the public rooms are more colourful with strong solouring and their seems to be a strong emphasis on tipping. The grand princess is 109,000 tonns so is a fairly large ship in comparison to Oceana which is only 77,000 tonns. So if you enjoy the large public rooms where you can meet lots of new people, then the grand princess should be your cup of tea.

So we took them to Poulton Park which I highly recommend to families with young children. Great for 2 years old and up to the age of 6 yrs.

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

Although there is something my two boys love slightly more – movies under the stars on a cruise. We often end up missing the shows and evening entertainment, because for them this is the perfect treat. Sun loungers, blankets, hot chocolate and even pop corn and pizza bought to you whilst watching a fil...
