Can only agree with others - there were no children facilities on Seabourn. There were 2 children on our cruise and clearly they had nothing to to. They state it's aimed at adults only in their brochure so I guess it's fair. Plus they pay as an adult! Many of the others on board specifically chose Seabourn as it was child free, so you may well encounter touchy people if you took them.

Hi Children can be taken on Seabourn cruises. They don't have a great deal of activities to occupy their time. Of the major luxury cruise lines Seabourn do attract a "younger" passenger and so it is likely that a few other children will be onboard. If the itinearary you are interested in is port intensive most young cruisers are unlikely to get bored but may find sea days a liitte dull.

There are very few ships that are child free, all the Seabourn ships allow children, even when sailing out of Southampton. Seabourn are not really noted for their children’s clubs, but they are a very highly rated cruise line for adults. Have you looked at Celebrity it might be a good compromise for your child/children and yourselves.

Hi I don't think in anyway Seabourn and Celebrity are comparable. The service, food are so much better on Seabourn and the cruise ambiences on both lines are different. I accept your views that Celebrity may cater better for children but neither line is noted for their kids activities. Not all kids have the same interests and more importantly neither of us know the ages of the children. IMO the comment "all the Seabourn ships allow children, even when sailing out of Southampton" is a rather strange thing to write!

I was not comparing the standards of Celebrity to Seabourn; I put Celebrity forward as an alternative that would be acceptable to both age groups. If it was for the children then I would suggest Royal Caribbean. As far as your comment about my comment “""all the Seabourn ships allow children, even when sailing out of Southampton" is a rather strange thing to write!"" I completely agree with you, for some very strange reason I read "Southampton" somewhere in the post, I am going to blame it on one too many glasses of red wine with my meal last night!

Thanks for the advice - we have cruised with Celebrity a few times and about to go again in a few weeks with the kids. Never cruised with Seabourn before so looks like its time to give them a ring - cheers .

I would worry that the children will be bored to tears. Have you considered going down market rather than up, to Royal Caribbean? You could indulge your desire for luxury by booking a suite and it would be heaven for the children compared with Seabourn where they may well be the only ones on board.

Outstanding for adults, but absolutely nothing for children to do - especially on the smallest "yachts" where even the pool is little more than a plunge pool. Although I am absolutely certain that all the staff onboard would go out of their way to think of things to keep your young ones engaged, they would definitely lack the company of other children. I would say keep Seabourn for a child-free holiday whenever you are able to indulge!
