    Default P&O cruise

    We are thinking on going on a 3 night p&o cruise for my dh birthday.
    We have a 4 and 6 year olds that we are thinking of taking.

    Would you or have you taking children on a ship?

    They have kids club but I'm scared about the idea of kids falling overboard.

    Lol, I don't think any kids have fallen overboard before with them.

    Apparently the kids clubs are awesome and you will hardly see them.

    I think a cruise is a perfect family holiday. I don't have children yet but have done two cruises and plan on doing another once bub is old enough.
    There is so much to do on cruise ships and you can choose to do as little or as much as you like. Being able to see different places but only unpacking once is a big plus.
    I think all ships have buffet dining as well as more formal set meal times which means you can eat when it suits you and the food is amazing.
    I don't have any experience with kids club but from what I saw they looked great, very well organised and supervised.

    We have only just been talking about this within my family. Hubby and I have decided not to go because of our kids age. If I had your 2 kids age, I would go. The kids club starts at age 3, and think it was only 3pm to 6pm. I am sure that different Cruises would have different Kids Clubs and times etc..

    I actually have the same fear with the kids falling overboard. I know it is extremely far fetched, but nonetheless a fear. I also have fears of rogue waves which I also understand is extremely unlikely. However, I will be going on one once my youngest is probably about 4.

    Quite a few people I know that do have kids absolutely love them!
