I think with kids you can't beat a beach holiday. Kids club for older kids is great but littles have so much fun with a bucket and spade on the beach or swimming in the pool. We've loved cairns/port Douglas and the Whitsundays with our 2.5 year old and will probably do something similar next year.
Personally I'm a going off the beaten track kind of person, I look forward to taking my kids to Africa one day when they're big enough.

It was a while ago and I can't remember everything that I didn't like but I'm sure there were more things but it's somewhat turned me off for good, it was like a holiday of all my least favourite things to do with kids, take them to restaurants, keep them quiet, try and get them to sleep while the room is like a washing machine, I had to hold the bed sheets to keep me in bed at night it was so pitchy.

What's the best holiday you have ever been on .... With kids ?
I didn't experience anything like that but my husband and I aren't big drinkers at all, even on holidays. I found it to be quite calm. But we went when the fares were the highest of all and maybe the bogans couldn't afford to go during such peak times

I would have thought floating RSL meant everyone was old

I think the people that go on a cruise depends entirely on the time you go.
Going outside of school holidays means more older people, going during school holidays means kids.
We went over New Year and lucky there was an adult's only section with a pool for the singles to escape to as the kids (mine included) were taking over the main pool and spa!

The cruise I went on was mainly old people who spent the whole time playing pokies, drinking and drinking.
My friend and I picked this particular cruise as it was a special singles cruise with singles activities. We were single and thought it would be great fun... We failed to read the part about it being a singles cruise for over 60s, we were 25 at the time 😂😂😂

We generally pack enough clothes to last the trip, and only used the laundry on P&O once - never again
Traveling with DD, we generally send the washing away to get washed for us, which ends up really expensive.
We just love being out on the ocean. And we've been lucky that on all the cruises we've done, it's never been rough

To me it did feel like being in a big leagues club, RSL on water kinda feel with that kind of decor, lots of bars , average food, all you can eat buffets, bingo, trivia nights, cover bands , comedians, poker machines and a kids club stuck at the end - well that's what I remember those big clubs being like so to me yes it felt like that! Nothing to do with old people, there were more young people on our cruise
