    You need Royal Caribbean Independence of the seas.

    You will love it.

    DO NOT believe all the nonsense about having to dress formal YOU DO NOT !!!!

    There is a suggested attire for each evening. Whether you choose to follow it or not is up to you. All they ask is that you dont turn up for dinner in swim wear. Once dinner is over you can go back to your room and change into whatever you so desire.

    Trust me, my first cruise was OV2 and when we chose to give RC a go we were really worried about what to expect. Their ships are wilder and more laid back that OV ships. Trust me......Americans dont really do formal and these ships are full of many many nationalities. Good fun, great service and LOADS for your kids to do.

    For the record we are actually sailing NCL for the first time in Sept having just got back from Royal Caribbean Explorer of the seas to Bermuda and Bahamas.

    NCL isn't my idea of fun with the children, Did a quick total up (drinks, Grats, upfront price etc) once and figured it'd be cheaper to sail on P&O for 3 weeks than NCL for 2.

    As an alternative to OV at the moment I seem to keep coming back to Ventura................
