In answer to question 3 you are not tied down to the one restaurant. You can also dine in the Beach House for free, waterside for free. The White roome and East have a cover charge. The Beach House has 24hr family dining.

1. Not sure about baby, but you get 25kg + 5kg hand luggage 2. Take your own buggy. I think they may not be included in your luggage allowance but check with your TA or P&O. 3. If you have booked on second sitting, this means you have the same table, same restaurant each night (Club dining) There is also freedom dining where there is one restaurant allocated for this where you turn up whenever you want. The menus/service are exactly the same, whether club or freedom dining. You can switch to this now or when you first get on board, but you can't switch from fixed to freedom dining when you feel like it. There are also "speciality" restaurants called "select dining" where there is a supplement. These are The White Room, East and Ramblas You maybe aware there is a night nursery from 6pm to 2am but you have to have your baby settled before you leave. They give you a pager so they can contact you if necessary. Lots of info on the P&O website. Go to the Ventura section "Life on board Ventura" .

Hi there, first time we cruised was when our daughter was five months old. Firstly, you will have no problems 1. Check with the airline, usually if you have paid for a seat, you get luggage allowance, if not, then no. The buggy will count towards your allowance 2. Take your own buggy, she will sleep better in it and there are unlikely to be any on board that are suitable, they just have very basic ones. 3. There are a selection of restaurants and usually one probably the Beach House does childrens tea. They have everything, from purees, to finger food and stuff for older ones. It is good because there are plenty of high chairs put out and little cutlery. Nearly everyone with kids goes to it. You could then have your own dinner in the restaurant, while she is in the buggy, or leave her in the night nursery. Wasn't easy on Oceana, as very noisy, people coming and going and they have to be asleep before you leave! They try and settle them if they wake up, but page you fairly soon if not. You can go in the childrens area and play, they will have age appropriate toys, but you won't be able to leave her with the staff. Our daughter is three now and been on four cruises. P.S. Take an inflatable baby bath, the shower isn't easy with a slippy child, you can put it in the bottom of the shower, fill it up and she can splash about safely. Get them in Boots.

I took my yea old daughter on oceana.they have everything for them baby baths,sterilisers ,bottle warmers,travel cots,childrens teas.would agree with the lady about the night nursery.my daughter woke and wouldnt settle,so she slept in the cabin and they have a listening in service.you programme your phone and you can phone your cabin and listen in from any phone on the ship and there are loads.it really worked for us,checking every 20 mins.there is always a phone nearby.my daughter loved it and slept loads.you have to order all baby requirements before hand as early as poss,they even have formula and baby foo.
