Braemar for Families
There were no children on the ship during our cruise, but there are usually a few during school holidays. When children are onboard, the Arts & Crafts Room is often used as a club room for them, with qualified staff to organise activities.
On embarkation day, the captain and other officers attend a children's club meeting with the youngsters and their parents to introduce themselves and discuss the club's activities.
Typically, the children are split into age groups: 1 to 4, 5 to 12 and 13-plus, with activities like colouring, playing games and making cookies and pizzas in the Palms Cafe. A children's edition of the Daily Times keeps them informed of each day's activities.
There is also a paddling pool next to one of the swimming pools and a few interconnected cabins that are ideal for families. No baby-sitting services are available, though.
