Our cruise was adults only (aged 18-plus) but Fred. Olsen has just announced that a new kids' club called Little Skippers is being launched on all four ships. During peak holidays season arents and grandparents will be able to leave their children in the care of qualified hosts who will arrange a variety of family-orientated activities, including arts and crafts sessions, deck games, treasure hunts, quizzes, cookie and pizza making in the galley, games evenings, swimming classes and more.
Depending on the age groups, there will be a ratio of one adult to every six or eight children.
The itinerary for the club will be shown in a dedicated daily children's programme, and will include a schedule of activities, fun facts, jokes, port information and even a virgin "cocktail of the day".
